I just got back from a long weekend in the Bahamas with my mom, and feel warm all over; partially because I had a really nice time, but mainly because I’m a bit burnt. It wasn’t the SPF 50’s fault that I slathered myself in, but rather user error in missing small patches of skin and occasionally being lazy about reapplying. Shame on me!
Nonetheless, it was so nice to stop shivering in NYC for a few days, and head somewhere with weather I can certainly appreciate it March! Besides vacation, I was there to visit my good friend Anna, and if you’re in Nassau and in need of any sort of an expert hair service from cut and color to styling, keep in mind her beautiful, boutique salon, Studio Vivo.
Now that I’m back in NYC, it’s time to stash away those tropical hues and sleeveless dresses, heading back to my winter wardrobe of predominantly black for me, at least for a while longer. Wearing black in the weather is a New Yorker’s uniform, perfect for combating and concealing the sludge, ice, snow, and anything else relatively icky with staining potential that you may encounter on the streets or in the subway. I certainly do love my sartorial life in NYC, but like Anna, I could also get used to dressing for the warm weather, year ’round!
