'When [Summers] Die, There Are No Comets Seen'


When I took these pics, it was yet another hot, steamy day in NYC!  I'm already lamenting the end of the summer season as the weather has taken a turn for the cooler side. REALLY!!!??? It's August, damn you! What happened to the dog days of summer? The lazy, hazy, humid afternoons?  WHYYYY isn't the north east a continual warm climate???

Is anyone else dreading the return of winter as I am?



(photos and sunspecs by N. Murphy)

What I'm Wearing:
Top: Anthropologie
Pants: JCrew
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell
Bag: Alexander Wang
Necklaces: JCrew, Forever21
Sunspecs: Marc by Marc Jacobs (stolen off the head of N. Murphy)


Much LOVE to Fashion to Food for telling me that Free People put my pic up on their blog! So exciting :)




Also, a big thank you to Rose (how apropos, don't ya think?) of Well Curated for letting me know the name of the flowers in my previous post (click here).  Here is her explanation:

Cockscomb is their common name. They are a member of the amaranth family. Pretty, aren't they? They always remind me of coral, or brains, or something a Victorian scientist would keep under glass. They dry very well, and keep their color for several years.

They really did remind me of brains actually. Pretty fluffy brains, but brains non-the-less!
* * *

And finally, for those of you who complimented me on my beautiful house in this post and this post, I must confess that those pictures were at a large estate in Sleepy Hollow, NY that I have the pleasure of staying at every year for my job. So nope, not my place. Bits of my humble abode can be seen here and here.  Will def. take some apartment shots one of these days!

  67. How is summer already over! It's chilly now when I wake up and its getting darker earlier…ugh it sort of makes me depressed! As for the flowers I cant believe they come from the amaranth family! I wonder if they have the same nutritional properties as amaranth.

    You look lovely as always and I love the mustard cross body…

  76. Oh geeez don't even get me started on the thought of winter....I'm dreading it to the point I'm seriously couting my pennies trying to come up with a strategic plan to move to a warmer climate for about 6 months;) Love the layered ruffle tank and of course the color of this ensemble.
