As we've been car-less since before the holidays (I ran over a road cone and busted the radiator - whoops), our weekends have been exceptionally low-key affairs, with a heavy focus on sleeping in, breakfast, and working on little projects. After a very busy December, it's refreshing to hibernate a little -- this is why I love January, after the hustle of the holidays and peak season at work, January is like a plan-less desert, the perfect excuse to stay in. But, you have to leave the house sometime and this past Sunday we grabbed lunch at Industry Public House down in Lawrenceville with a couple of friends. I secretly love going out to lunch, it's such a rare occurrence that when we do go out, it feels weirdly special -- sort of reminiscent of being pulled out of school mid-day for an appointment.

Whenever I have to get ready in a rush this is my go-to uniform -- dark jeans, boots, a top of some sort, drab jacket, and hat. It's easy, it's comfortable, and it works. I can't wait to style this top with shorts for the summer.

On a side note, Chris has set up a donation fund to help get some assistance to his mother and brother, who lost their home in a fire the day after Christmas. To those who inquired about ways to help, the campaign can be found here. The outpouring of love and support we've received here and across all channels has been tremendous, and I can't thank everyone enough who has conveyed kind words, thoughts, prayers, and good vibes.
