storm in a teacup

so "snowmageddon" was kind of a bust, huh?

I'm not sure how you native New Yorkers felt about blizzard 2015, but I was kind of underwhelmed.
that being said, the snow day was very appreciated, and it's kind of nice to have a little winter wonder around here. if it's gonna be cold, there might as well be snow!

coat + dress- Modcloth // boots- Hunter // hat- Topshop 

you're never too old for a little frolic in the snow. 

I got a new coat for Christmas from my mom- she always gives me the best coats! unfortunately it was a little too big... but when I exchanged it Modcloth had a huge sale on so I got this coat in two colours! and I love them both. I'm always nervous ordering things with sleeves online (do I just have freakishly disproportionate arms?) but this coat is so comfy and chic and perfect for New York City winters. meaning not blizzard-y or snowpocalyptic. 
at all.
come on, guys.

happy snow day!
and now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

everything is awesome

well, the 2015 blogging year is off to a great start, isn't it?!

where does the time go? even as I type this, I'm sitting in a slowly darkening room, tired and frazzled, wondering if they've started secretly reducing the number of hours in a day and I am the only one who's noticed. 
who "they" would be, I have no idea. the time police? the government? alien overlords? probably the government.

but I think perhaps it's just that I am spectacularly bad at time management and value naps above human interaction. 
(human interaction- who needs it! I have a cat who supports my laziness and sleeps on or near me at all times. she loves me unconditionally! I don't need you, real world!)

dress- gift, Modcloth // cardigan- H&M // boots- gift, Chelsea Crew via Modcloth // tights- American Apparel

in all honesty though, the real world is what has been keeping me from the interweb. January thus far has been a hectic and lovely mix of babysitting, bakeries, beers, books, trip-planning, movie-watching, and Friends. 
the tv show, not the real thing. because now all ten seasons are on Netflix so my real friends have been expecting me to become a recluse. 

amidst all that I often wear clothes such as the ones pictured, a fact I somehow imagine you would be interested in. so enjoy these gratuitous pictures of me- "gpoms," if you will- and feel free to use my life as a template of how to live mediocrely.

...just kidding, my life's kind of awesome.


disclaimer: if I seem especially disjointed, sassy, or ridiculous in this post, I blame Mindy Kaling, whose book I've finally gotten around to reading, and whose humour and affability I've obviously, subconsciously and very poorly, attempted to emulate here. my soul is pining to be more like Mindy.
