too busy to dress...too busy to document

top: thrifted
shorts: thrifted trousers cuffed into shorts
shoes: thrifted
socks: H&M
collar necklace: etsy

All my clothes are so wrinkly! we still don't have furniture and are living out of boxes and we aren't getting an iron until later today:( also, it is so so so so so so so unbelievably stiflingly unbearably hot, and it is impossible for my hair to ever work out here. ever. I give up.

Also we had some soba noodles in one of our boxes so we did some grocery shopping and had a great summer meal.

Ryan building assembling our Ikea find: solid wood table and four matching chairs in antique finish: $100. The 4 hour round trip to Ikea, countless transfers, super inconvenient buses, and the impossibility of carrying huge boxes home on trains leading to our paying a fee almost as expensive as our purchase to get it shipped to our door:.......priceless.

Sorry for the sparseness and rushed quality of this post. it has been super difficult to keep up with blogging during this move. it's a huge hassle to bring our camera all over the city and on the subways, so we never have it with us, and we are always rushing all over the place doing errands to try and settle in. Today we're renting a zipcar truck to pick up a bunch of craigslist furniture! so busy!



  1. Sounds like things have been crazy hectic so kudos for getting this post up :) Love your outfit's so pretty.

  2. I just love the length of those shorts! YOu look terrific :)
    Good luck on finishing to move in your house!

  3. Wow! I'm impressed you even made a post during your move! I love IKEA, and half the fun/frustration is putting it all together! Whoo Hoo! Good luck during your move!

  4. Stunning pictures, i love the quality!
    I always love food pics on blogs so keep 'em coming! :)

  5. Good to hear your steadily settling in. Be careful with craigslist furniture as this city has an insane bed bug infestation. I've had some friends tell me some really terrible stories about their experiences with this. Especially if your buying something that has any kind of fabric. Good luck and take precaution. You can google and read up on it and the precautions you can take.

  6. Congrats on the big move! I used to live in NYC, and miss the food a bagel with olive cream cheese and tomato for me!

  7. Love this outfit and simple yet very stylish. and Good luck on your move :)
