Back To Reality

11th January, 2013

Back in the New York swing of things, trying to get into a new routine for 2013. I believe in setting intentions for the year ahead, verbalizing and documenting goals, replacing outdated systems of working and embracing the opportunity for a fresh start. And I’m so excited for what’s in store this year, optimistic as I look out on the possibilities. I have big dreams for myself, my work, and this site ~ and I’m ready to make them a reality!When it comes to my clothes, I don’t think so far ahead. Getting dressed is a pretty instinctual process: what mood I am in and what meetings are in store sets the tone in an instant. Fortunately, it hasn’t been too terribly cold since I’ve been back in New York, and a great cashmere sweater can be just as enjoyable as a slinky knit skirt|WEARING| Miu Miu hat, Celine sunnies, Joseph shirt, Etienne Aigner sweater, Christopher Kane x J Brand jeans (also seen HERE), Amanda Joy clutchLa Fenice boots (recently worn HERE)|PHOTOS| by Jeremy James
