New York has terrible weather. We really do. Boiling humid summers, frigid windy winters, springs that seem to take forever to get here. Plus we get more rain than Seattle. But, we do have some perfect days here and there. There are a lot of those perfect days in fall. It's warm but crisp and leaves on the trees light up like fireworks. It's beautiful out and it feels great to be outside. Plus it's nice to have some warm November days so you can get out and enjoy dress weather a few more times before the winter comes.
The other day there was a high of 75 so I knew I had to get out! My plan was have a nice day of shopping, maybe some lunch too.
My first stop was LOFT, where they had just put out their new winter line. There were lots and lots of black dresses to try on! I tried on maybe five or six. The staff were super helpful, offering to help me find other sizes and things.
Next I went to Housing Works where I found the black sweater you can see in these pictures. For $10 it was a total steal. I've been trying to get more layers in my wardrobe. The look now is all for layers, but I worry that too many scarves and sweaters and things make my shoulders look big. So when I can find something that doesn't look weird I am all about it.
As I was going around, I stopped to take a few selfies since I had some perfect midday light.
