I haven’t even been outside yet and I know it feels like doom. That’s what Winter is: sadness, the end, hibernation. I mean, if you want to look at it on the bright side, it’s a time for preparation and renewal as well. But today, it’s miserably overcast. A crisp and dreary and day calls for layers. Lots of them.
I completely forgot about these photos my dear friend Channing (of Channing in the City) sent to me from my visit to New York early this year. Yes, 8 short months ago. This year has flown by so quickly! I’m ready for it to be over but ill prepared. And one of those things I’m not prepared for is Winter.
Have I mentioned it already that I hate Winter? I hate the bulky jackets I have to wear. Winter wear is downright cumbersome. I am dreading its arrival.
Those eyebrows were last seen in this picture. Alas, they exist no more.
But back to Winter being annoying. I had no idea it was going to be as cold as it was in New York in April. Yes, I checked the weather, but still. I literally had to buy a new wardrobe while there.
I’m sure Channing loves every bit of the cold. She’s a northern girl and new New York transplant. Just look at her.
This was my first time meeting Channing in person and she’s just as charming and pleasant as I thought she’d be. And she’s so freaking hilarious. Please do yourself a favor and read her blog, Channing in the City.
I’m sure she’s somewhere hitting the town in her knee highs. As for me, right now, I’m in all black, mourning the loss of Fall.
