Sunday Styles no. 37


It's always really obvious when I get back from an extended trip to NYC. Reason being, I inevitably end up reverting back to my completely monochromatic way of dressing from days of yore. Wearing all black never seems wrong in NYC, whether it's 100 degrees and 100% humidity or it's 10 degrees and nearing an icy apocalypse.

So, of course, upon my return, I reached into the shadows of my closet for the inkiest items to prolong the memory of my sweet & hectic stay last week. I find that the interesting thing about wearing all black (or, at the very least, staying greyscale) is that you end up focusing more on shapes and proportions because you're not distracted by crazy patterns or bright colors. It all comes down to the cut, the angles, and the overall composition.

So, this week's Sunday Styles is dedicated to black. To texture, proportion, and nostalgia. I can honestly say that I miss it a little bit, New York that is...and, no, I can't move back, east coast friends. You'd have to take that up with Charlesband since he's in a situation where he can't really move.

Also, Merlin likes it on the west coast and I can't take that away from him. Sadly, he was too tired to join our shoot today. He chose the new comforter over us.
Fair enough.



For now, I'll savor my monthly visits to the big apple and celebrate it in my own, quietly sartorial way. Cheers to the grind, the long workdays, to all of my co-workers who make it so easy to want to just stay in the office all day and all night, and to the new faces & old friends I've made at my current job.

...And a big hug to my friends I didn't get to see. If only there were more hours in the day and I didn't enjoy my job so much. xo!
