headless chicken... horseman?

sweater + hat + skirt: H&M

During my last few days at home before school, I've been running around like a chicken with its head cut off. (Tacked on the horseman bit cause of the giant hat that makes me look a headless human. Or nearly headless Nick. Damn the tangents in my brain.) On top of the whole getting back into school thing, there's the whole moving into my first apartment thing. The part of me that's fearful and stressed out is colossal in comparison to the teeny part that's excited. On the less important blog side of things, everything that I've shot recently is shit. While I can proudly say that I have improved in my photography over the years, sadly the downside is that the arbitrary standard for what is worthy to display is on the rise. So out of the 6 outfits that I have shot over the past week, this is the only one that makes the cut. Then I try rationalizing that I spent the time to take them and attempted editing them, and get frustrated over all the extra lost time spent on contemplating this... then telling you about it. Blergh. 

(P.s could you tell my parents are computer engineers from the books?)
As busy as I am/was, I couldn't resist one last quick trip to NYC on Monday. Here's my cousin's view again, this time at sunset. Just looking at it calms me down. Well, a little bit.

  10. that fluffy sweater looks SO cool! and wow, looks like those floppy hats are super popular these days. our first H&M was opened a couple of days ago and pretty much everyone was touching and buying those hats, haha (at least as much as I could see from the photos about the opening). oh and now I'm curious about your apartment!
