What I wouldn't give for sunshine and weather that warranted head-to-toe linen! These scalloped shorts from Asos and a drapey linen tank in a fun jungle print from Madewell are both perfect for casual island wear. The new year feels so far long ago, especially when everything outside is buried under 3'-5' of snow and some forecasts project a whopping 85 consecutive hours of snowfall starting again this weekend.
All of New England is crying uncle, and I feel like half the people I know are enjoying Denver weather at Creating Change (which I think just proves I keep excellent company).
The Fairmont Southampton's perky pink palette against fresh blues and greens is a sight for sore eyes! Wore a pair of low-maintenance sunglasses in a classic wayfarer design and my beloved Plague of Pigeons anchor earrings from Pretty Penny back in Oakland for accessories...plus some wrist candy from Flock, one of my favorite South End boutiques here in Boston, as well as Alex & Ani.
I'm also really into this super sheer, YLBB lip balm/tint from Royal Apothic called Tinties Lip Butter. Mine's in Coral and it's that rare, holy grail shade for me!
It's been two weeks since my last post because I severely underestimated what post-op would look and feel like after having four wisdom teeth removed. Oh my god, it was awful. I've never been under general anesthesia before, and I started to panic a little when they went to put the IV in! "I've been through natural childbirth and delivered an eight-pound newborn," I remember telling them in a shaky voice, "I don't know why I'm being such a baby about this."
Then suddenly I was waking up and my mouth was so dry from the drugs that I felt like I couldn't breathe. I remembered exactly nothing they said about post-care instructions, so thank goodness M was there, and after she tucked me in at home and went to pick up the pain meds and antibiotics at the pharmacy, they gave her the runaround and she ended up having to elsewhere to fill my prescription. By the time she got home, the medication from the surgery had worn off and I was miserable, and stayed that way for about a week and a half. I only just this week started to resume eating normal foods and might even brave popcorn this weekend, which is really exciting, as silly as that sounds.
Shoes so sexy you'd never know they were vegan! By Olsenhaus. Not a whole lot else is new...a coworker pal of mine and I had a double salon date at Trephin, which is right around the corner from our offices downtown. I lucked out and ended up with a Best of Boston: Best Hair Colorist Winner, Nina Ganci, and it was the perfect pick-me-up after being bedridden by recovery and housebound by snow for nearly two weeks. Head over to my Instagram for a preview!
Everything else is work-work-work before a bunch of us head to LA for our annual Awards Dinner at the end of the month. We're honoring an incredible crop of folks: Modern Family & Glee, Honeymaid, and Houston Mayor Annise Parker. Our Master of Ceremonies couldn't be cooler, because she's Sandra freaking Bernhard, and we have a killer lineup of special guests and performers. I'm looking forward not only to seeing all our efforts come to fruition for an amazing event in support of LGBTQ families, but also to palm trees and sunshine and sipping well-deserved tiki cocktails from a poolside cabana, and some quality time with my rad colleagues.
Whatever your weather, I hope you're all cozy as kittens out there.
