hello and happy long weekend (if you, unlike me, are lucky enough to have one.) i've enjoyed mine so far, anyway; i finally satiated my week-long ramen craving, and had some drinks with christine. i still somehow managed to wake up at a fairly reasonable hour this morning and have a friend over for brunch, then i finally dug into something i've been wanting to try for some time now: jarring. sam got me a home jarring and preserving kit for some time now, so i swung through a farmer's market earlier in the week and purchased some big, luscious heirloom tomatoes (and some rhubarb, which i have big plans for, and will bake and recipe-up later this week.)
i just followed to directions here and it seems to have gone smoothly. i got a little excited and ordered a book of recipes and tips, so i'm sure there is much more of this to come.
wore this ensemble a couple of days ago and a friend told me i looked like a couple of tablecloths.
shorts: j crew
shoes: vivienne westwood for melissa
my hair is in another of those super awkward stages so i'm trying different things. i dream of long locks.
i'm crossing my fingers for clear skies in brooklyn tomorrow. enjoy your weekend, however long it may be!
I take it as no small coincidence that you posted about Madewell's lookbook just the other day. I'm moving to NYC this winter (terrible timing) and I've decided to ask Santa for a nice, warm, winter coat this Christmas. I'm in LOVE with the Madewell City Grid Coat. It is, unfortunately, out of stock in my size (and possibly entirely) and the reviews didn't make it out to be a Serious NYC Winter Coat. Any suggestions for similar styles/warmer alternatives? (priced around $300 or so)
