coffee break into new year

Christmas past, my gaze is now set to my favorite day of the year – New Years Day. A feeling of old burdens shedding off like dust blowing into the wind, it’s time for another re-birth, and the change has already begun.

Beginning the first week of January, I will be transitioning into my new role in creative content for a marketing agency in NYC. I wait on the days with baited breath, and these moments between hardly feel like reality. Embracing the best of both worlds, I’ll be spending half of my time in the city, and have the privilege of working from the comfort of home alternate weeks. Choosing to take some time off between positions, I’ll be spending the week setting up a home office and streamlining my travel essentials. NYC, here I come!

Pondering what life might hold in the next several months, I decided to walk it off with a day trip to Charlottesville to enjoy some late-season sun and a good cup of coffee. Ended up purchasing a Nespresso machine for the house (hey, I need good coffee if I’m working from home) Sophia Vergara, let’s toast to the frothy goodness.

Finally ended my search for thigh high boots thanks to Public Desire. Now all I need is weather to suit. Wearing them as an extended transitional piece until winter decides to show up in Virginia. In the pursuit of rosegold, yet again with Peachbox and De Priscilla. The cuff and twist ring are on heavy rotation lately. And of course, it wouldn’t be fashion 2015 without a sporty twist, so wrapped it up with a perf bag courtesy of Mellow World.


Vowing to make my time off productive and not completely spent behind my macbook screen, so I must sign of for the time being. Also need to put some seriously thought time into my New Years Resolution, any ideas?


  1. Those are definitely some of the best thigh high boots I’ve seen! And that’s fantastic news about your new position! Many congratulations to you and best wishes for your new adventure in 2016! Your blog has been a joy to follow!
