Young Soul In This Very Strange World


Just a quick warning: there is an over abundance of photos of myself in this post but I couldn't help but post all of the silly pictures as well (the silly pictures that I usually keep in my archives, away from the eyes of the blogosphere).

The weather is finally starting to rise back up to the 30's and I couldn't be more relieved. It was ridiculously painful just walking outside of my apartment or leaving work - hopefully the groundhog doesn't see his shadow next weekend. I wish the weather would just make up its mind though. This entire week is supposed to stay in the mid-30's except for Wednesday, who decided that life was too short for the 30's and wanted to be 58 degrees. What is that? I'm not complaining though since I'll probably rock some tight-less legs. Boo-yah.

This past weekend was so chill and I couldn't have asked for anything more. One of my co-workers curated her first New York City art show on Saturday night so I grabbed a few friends and went downtown to photograph it. It was full of hipsters so I felt a little out of place but I still really enjoyed the art. Just not my scene, I guess. It makes me realize how much I miss painting - if only I had more time to sit out on my balcony and just spend an afternoon with my paints. As usual, the night ended up at the bars with a mix of new and old friends.

Early on Sunday morning, a few of my guy friends caught the matinee showing of Les Misérables with me and I couldn't have been more blown away. I've never read the novel or watched the musical live so this was my first time being exposed to the story line and the music. I have to say, the acting was phenomenal, especially during the close-up shots of Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman. Definitely a must-see before it's out of theaters!

  1. You're so cute, seriously. I can't wait until we can freeze outside together... not that that's something to really look forward to, but the key word: TOGETHER.

    P.S. How are you not frozen? Seriously. : (

  5. Omgosh it looks so cold in New York, but your outfit looks so comfortable yet super chic! Absolutely loving that coat! And Les Miserables was so amazing! I watched it twice and cried both times like crazy, and the acting and singing just blew me away!

  16. Haha, I love how mid-30s is like, nice to you. ;) That's pretty much cold as heck, stay indoors type weather for me. But I'm glad it's so much nicer for you, Jen! You sure look cute, all bundled up-like.

    omg, I know what you mean about hipster artsists, though. Even though I'm an art major, I feel like I don't have that art major hipster vibe that many others do, and it can be difficult. But I'm glad you went anyway and saw things and had fun! Your gloves are so cute and cozy lookin'!

  17. You made me laugh with your silly photos. This outfit looks so warm and cozy but I can't wait for warmer weather either. I want some flowers to start blooming!

    Also I guess I really need to see Les Mis now. I was skeptical at first because I've never read the book or seen the play either. But if you're recommending it, then I'm on it!

    Have a stellar Monday! (Is that ever possible?)

    Love your fingerless mittens. The cabling is beautiful!! :)
