Typical New Yorker

I actually took these photos a few weeks ago and never got around to posting them.  I threw this together in a hurry on a Saturday morning.  I realized I had overslept and I was running late to my CSA driver shift.  In order to participate in our local CSA, each member has to volunteer three times over the course of the season.  You have to either volunteer handing out the farm shares or if you have a car, drive the unclaimed shares to the local soup kitchen.

I was driving this morning and didn’t want to be late.  I’ve learned that when you’re in a rush with no time to think, an all black ensemble is the way to go.  Well, technically I’m wearing gray leggings here but you catch my drift.  Wearing all black is such a typical, New Yorker look and considering we’re always in such a rush, I now understand why.  It looks great every time.

This particular outfit was ridiculously comfortable.  It was basically like wearing a sweats but way more presentable.

What’s your go-to outfit when you have five minutes to get out the door?

Yoga

I wore this last weekend to go to yoga and brunch with Tracy.  I knew we were going to head out to eat immediately after class, so I needed to wear something comfortable, yet put together for going to a restaurant.  For yoga, I obviously left the boots in my locker along with the chambray shirt and put them on again when class was done.  It worked perfectly!

Now I’m on the hunt for more work out gear I can wear immediately after a workout without looking like a gym rat/slob after.  If anyone has any suggestions, throw them my way!

Last week was one of those weeks were I was seeing red my entire time in the office.   Actually, this week has been pretty much the same.  The day I had worn this ironically was the worst day. I’ve been working through major payment issues with one of my vendors that affects all my customers, and it’s been ridiculously stressful trying to get it all sorted out.  That plus having an employee quit along with about 2-3 staff members on vacation next week, and my stress level is near through the roof.

This week, especially today I’m dealing much better with the stress.  Tonight I have “sweaty beers” with my gym girl friends after spin class (where immediately following class we hit up the local bar), which I’m looking forward to and it’s getting me through the day.  I’m also making it a point to hit up the gym, do some yoga and meditate daily to get rid of some of my nervous energy so I can at least sleep soundly.  We’ll see how it goes the rest of this week, it can’t get much worse.

Does this outfit look remotely familiar?  Take this one… chop off the pants at the knees and voila! There you go.  Creative, huh?

For the record, beloved Mavi jeans were not harmed in the making of this post. In case you were worried.  Don’t want anyone losing any sleep.

Holiday weekends I always forget to get photos. I’m too damn busy. I’ll have my camera with me but I’ll never take it out of my bag.

This was last Sunday during 4th of July weekend. My husband and I met up with my best friend and her boyfriend for a few cocktails. On our walk home, I remembered I forgot to get my photos, and my husband happily stepped in to take a few for me.

It’s really funny to me how different it is taking photos in front of him instead of a tripod. I make really silly, goofy smiley faces when he takes my photos.  They’re 100% genuine, but goofy nonetheless.  He makes me kinda self concious in a cute girly way.  Which is weird for me because there’s nothing about me that’s normally cute and girly.  Ask any of my friends, they’d tell you I’d probably punch you in the face if you called me that.

Oh, and how awesome are these shorts!  I found them at the Market Publique loft sale here in Williamsburg  back several months ago.  They were actually unfinished.  They were much longer and not hemmed.  I had them altered and now totally love them.  I can’t believe I forgot I had them in my 30 challenge items until day 19.  You’ll probably be seeing these shorts a lot in the final 10 days of the challenge so I can make up for my forgetfulness.

Fundraiser

This is what I wore Thursday of last week.  My husband and I attended a fundraiser that evening to benefit the Woodstock Animal Sanctuary.  It was held on a rooftop here in Williamsburg, and there was amazing vegan hor d’oeuvres, cocktails and entertainment.  We had heard about the event last-minute the night before, and after hearing it was going to be held so close to home we had to swing by and check it out.  All the proceeds are going to go towards repairs and improvements for the sanctuary’s duck pond and pig barn.  I have yet to actually visit the sanctuary myself, but being it’s only a two-hour drive north of the city I’m making it a goal of mine to get there before the end of the summer.

All in all we had a fantastic time and I had to opportunity to meet and network with more vegans from the area, which is always fun.

I had attempted to take more photos at the event, but again we had gray, crappy weather and none of my images came out well.  Here’s hoping the weather breaks sooner rather than later!

The Bossi Camera Bag by THEIT

I am so freaking excited!  I ordered my THEIT “Bossi” Camera bag today!  When I first got my new DSLR they were out of stock, so I put my name on the waiting list.  I got the notice today they were available and put in my order immediately.

The interior of the bag.

Some things I love about this bag…

  • It’s VEGAN! 
  • The interior pockets are removable, so I can easily use this as a regular purse and not just as a camera bag.  If it wasn’t for this and the bag being really stylish on its own, I wouldn’t splurged as much as I did on it.
  • It’s way more chic than a standard ugly camera bag.  I highly doubt while carrying it anyone would even think it’s a camera bag.

My new bag ships in March.  I can’t wait to receive it and tote my camera with me everywhere I go!
