Ahead of the Curve

"Wont you be cold in that?" my sister asked me as we headed out the door. No, I don't think so, as I'm still very much a Connecticutian where partly cloudy and 65° equals bare legs, no question.

She then went on to ask if I'd be alienating my readers by posting spring looks in January. Even though at this time I might normally be posting outfits in my heaviest of winter layers, I know in a few weeks everyone, even those still freezing Connecticut, will start posting spring fashion at the expense of the feeling in their fingers and toes. This year I'll just be a bit ahead of the curve.

After Sunset

I can't believe I've already been in California for two weeks, it's crazy how fast the time goes. Of course this last week it's just been non stop torrential rain, but thankfully on Sunday before it started I went out to dinner with my sister and we passed by this adorable courtyard. Even though the sun had just set, we managed to snap a few photos in the twilight.

Trying Not to Shop

If there is one thing there is no shortage of in Los Angeles, it's places to shop. There is temptation around every corner, and unlike the shopping malls in Connecticut, everything here is open to the outdoors, at this spot there were fire pits with rocking chairs, and a fun wall to use as my backdrop for outfit photos.

As inviting as it was, I'm trying very hard to not shop much this year. I know I have too much. Trying to pack for this trip was a pretty good reality check. Finding things with tags still on from months ago, realizing I probably own 50 pounds of jeans alone, struggling to get my suitcase under weight (it ended up being three pounds over and by some grace they let me go without having to pay extra) and contemplating if three leather jackets would be too many. (I ended up with one, but haven't worn it yet since it's been raining so much).

All this to say, I can't keep up my usual shopping habits, especially as long as I'm in L.A., because I'm going to eventually have to get it all home again.
