simple goodness

sometimes less is not more. sometimes it's just better.

had a long talk with the photographer yesterday about the importance of talking. i hate talking. i'm not sure if that comes across here. i'm not a good talker. my ears turn red when answering questions in lecture. i get all hot when cops pull me over. used to be able to lie myself out of punishment as a kid. as an adult...i'm not sure what's happened. either way, there was much talking. it turned out to be a good thing. sort of a hard reset. i'm trying to work on eliminating self-deprecation from my life. 'i'm so (insert unflattering comment here)'. i never really thought i believed it, but it's something about reinforcing the little things in one's own psyche. eventually, they start to feel true. so...i'm going to try to go a full day without complaining. try it. it's not easy. i may not make it to lunch, but i'll see.
this is my apartment hunting outfit. swapped out a short sleeved tee for this longer one. still debating the wisdom of that choice. supposed to be hella hot today.  summertime in november. i'm down.

trench: zara
shirt: james perse
pants: les chiffoniers suede leggings
shoes: henry beguelin

i still don't have a halloween costume. maybe i'll be cousin it...

Woohoo!! Looking great in those leggings! You will want to wear them every weekend, they're so comfy. Loving the hair too.

I've got a little self-deprecation in me too. Can't get rid of it fully, but I've gotten better about keeping it to myself and not being a downer.

Hair is beauty. I'm not a good talker, either -- I fall all over my words and no one ever takes me seriously. I'm jealous it's hot there. Here is like, winter. Freaking freezing. Ugh. Your shoes are DANDY.

Your hair gives me life.

Yeah, I'm not much of a talker neither. The older I get, the more I believe talking for the sake of it is a waste of words. Maybe this is just a way of convincing myself that my inability to talk to strangers is "normal" or whatever. I'm so quiet so I tend to always be on my own. It's actually a fear of talking, the words are always at the tip of my tongue but it's like my brain won't let them come out. Since I was a child really. But I don't know..

I love the jacket as you know. And I hate you for fitting into all your trousers the way you do. No fair.

Talking is part of my job, so in my time I don't talk very much. My co-workers don't believe me!! Since I'll officially be an old hag ;) next year, I tell myself I'm going to be more quiet and serious...

Cool jacket.

I can't believe it when I hear people complain about the beautiful, warm weather in the NE lately. It's a million times better than the freezing cold that's coming.

I need that jacket, by the way.

ps- doggy pics!
