Striped


Hello, new favorite silk shirt under $100. It's a lovely thicker silk with some heft, to hold up to the wear I'll be putting into it. (p.s. size up for a more relaxed fit like I did.)


I'm also fully embracing my inner nerd with these glasses, which I had ordered months and months ago, but I made the mistake of getting my prescription filled online and via a UK site (as the prices were slightly cheaper). That was a terrible mistake. Long story short, I had to get them re-fitted with new lenses to match where the center of my pupils actually fell on the lens. I put it off for the longest time because I knew I would eat the cost I originally paid for the lenses (over $350) and have to pay for new lenses (my local place cut me a 'deal' and they were still $400 – I have a pretty awful prescription so I have to get the thinnest ones available). Two lessons I learned from this: never get prescription lenses online; and prescription lenses are not a place in life to try and save money on!

Sky-diving


Not really. But that's what a friend jokingly dubbed this outfit as, so I'll run with it. This was definitely one of those outfits I hesitated to actually wear out, and I definitely texted at least three friends asking if it looked completely ridiculous. But it was 62 degrees again and so I thought why the hell not.

Agnes



On the very last day of the Agnes Martin exhibition at the Guggenheim, I raced over faster than I could finish my morning cup of coffee. It was one of those things I kept putting off or saying oh I'll see it next week, and then next week, and then next week... and suddenly it was the last day. Her work makes me feel a sense of calm, yet imagining how she created some of her more intensive and larger grids makes my head spin.







I didn't take that many photos of the artwork because I couldn't do them justice and I couldn't convey the feeling Martin would want her viewers to have, which is to "have the same feelings they experience when they look at a landscape.... It's really about the feeling of beauty and freedom that you experience in a landscape."
