So I’ve lived in New York for 13 days now; it’s very cold. I didn’t really realize how little warmth the clothes I brought from South Carolina would give! I’ve become a very proficient layerer. Here is an outfit I wore yesterday to the on-post youth group! I had to wear two sweaters and a long sleeve t-shirt, plus a coat over that, and I was still cold!
I wore my new coral skinny jeans (PX), a lace sweater (I have no idea where I got it, I’ve had it forever), a white long-sleeved t-shirt (Old Navy), a yellow sweater over that (probably thrifted I’m not sure), wool TOMS with fur inside (thank you grandma Lillian!), a dragonfly ring, and butterfly earrings.

Just to show how much snow we are getting! This isn’t actually much at all, but it finally started snowing really hard, so I had to take a picture! This is from today, but it has already stopped snowing and is creeping up in the 30’s! I’m so excited for Wednesday, it’s supposed to get up to 56!! I went ice skating today and met some new people, plus I only fell once so that was really fun! I already have a library card and a membership to the YMCA, which are both withing walking distance of my house, so that’s really nice. I’m starting to get settled into life here, I’m going shopping at the mall (which they’re planning on expanding to make it bigger than the Mall of America!!) with some friends soon, and I’m going to a Super Bowl party this week too! So far I like New York, even though it is REALLY cold! They have really good thrift shops here, so I’ll definitely be a regular at those!
