Outside of monsoon season, it doesn’t rain much here.  So when a little drizzle rolls through, everyone suddenly starts driving 15 miles below the speed limit.  I, on the other hand, take the opportunity to bust out the rain boots and splash around.  After all, you’re never too old to layer up, boot up, and jump in rain puddles!

weekend wear (fall).

During cooler weather, my weekend uniform will almost always consist of a pair of leggings.  More comfortable than jeans and less fussy than tights, you can’t really go wrong (as long as you cover up in places that were meant to be covered!).  Today, I paired mine with ballet flats and a striped tee for a Parisian feel.  With the pink cardigan providing a signature pop of color, I’m ready for this three-day weekend.  Happy VDW and thanks to all the Vets who served our country!

When my husband and I first moved to New York City, we never imagined we would be able to own a home. Nearly six years later, we’ve embarked on our most exciting chapter yet!
