Black Swan


Seriously Elsa, ya need to stop!!

 I am one snow storm away from moving back to the west coast!! Ok, who am I kidding? I love New York City but 12 inches of snow every week is not cute! Not only is it beyond freezing, but 1) it's impossible to wear any cute shoes/sneakers 2) I constantly have to wear layers upon layers of clothing 3) I'm mentally and physically exhausted trying to dodge icicles and puddles, which are very deceiving because puddles don't look like puddles in N.Y. 4) my throat hurts every morning because the coldness SUCKS all the moisture out of my body 5) I'm super ashy and 6) I always have a bad hair day. Need I say more? I know, #FirstWorldProblems.

Even though I L-O-V-E having all four seasons (technically two... one long summer and one really long winter), I think it's safe to say that New Yorkers are ready for warm weather. With that being said, one day I woke up and had an epiphany. I thought to myself "Screw the snow! I can still wear shorts contrary to the freezing cold weather!" So I tossed on my tights, leather shorts and sneakers and wore my faux fur jacket over my sweater to keep me extra warm. Ta-da!! Say hello to my 'Summer Meets Winter' outfit! So, F YOOOOU polar vortex!!! 

Sadly, mother nature made me go back home around 6pm to change into pants -__-.
