Flutter Sleeves (+ back in NYC!) - Among Other Things

Flutter Sleeves (+ back in NYC!)

A colorful orange coat to perk up your winter wardrobe

Fair warning, my friends – I’m already two lattes in this AM.

Reason being, I landed in New York City (very) late last night after another round of “bad” travel luck… And so it goes!

I haven’t been back to New York City in, oh, I don’ t know… Six months, maybe?

On the bright side, I’ve discovered that I do my very best writing on an airplane – or more specifically, on a quiet airplane at night with a glass of that (cheap, chilled) red wine and a pair of noise-canceling headphones.

On this week’s agenda is lots of SoulCycle, walking,  and eating/coffee-drinking. I have so many of my old favorite spots to hit up — and I swear there’s, like, six more that spring up by the day.

(Have you seen my New York City Guide, by the way? Bookmark it here.)

Since work/SoulCycle-related things are at the forefront of my agenda, I packed pretty much only black clothes (in the spandex variety) in my suitcase. So I felt that was a justifiable reason to bring this coat – cute as fuck, no?

(This flutter-sleeve style is sold out, but here’s a similar style on sale that I found.)

It’s Fashion Week here, too, so the city is buzzing with even more energy than usual.

I say I’m not doing anything for it, but if the City That Never Sleeps taught me anything in my three years here, it’s that spontaneity is the name of the game… So we shall see.

Again, the jacket. Had to – just in case the mood strikes, right?
