What a crazy week. With next week looking even crazier. Heeeeyyyy New York Fashion Week. My nose has been to my computer screen for the past seven days straight. My fingers sore from editing. My eyes tired from lack of sleep. But I’ve been at the grind so much this week because I’m so excited about it all and what is to come. I really do think that fall is my season. It’s when I’m most productive and motivated. It’s like a brand new school year. Only this time, the tests that I take are the ones that I give myself. And one thing that I’ve learned to be most important is giving myself time to breathe on the weekends. Thank goodness for the one coming up. A long Labor Day weekend to be exact. Mondays off are the best aren’t I right? Although I’m sure I’ll be working on Monday, my spirits will still be high. But the next two days?! They are going to be divinely slow and lazily so. Sleeping in will be a rule of thumb. The museum is waiting for me because my boyfriend has yet to see the COMME des GARÇONS exhibit, and I’ll take up any excuse to go to the MET again and again and again. This artful weekend sport is part of an undying love affair for me. Brunch in my old neighborhood of Bushwick at the Aussie brunch spot that doesn’t allow you to take pictures inside (even though they know you totally do). Furniture hunting at the vintage store. Bold velvet chair I am going to find you! Each day my condo comes closer and closer to feeling like a real home. I am grateful for that feeling. And the weekends are committed to my home. My candle scented haven. My favorite excuse to call the weekend to come to me as fast as it can. This DKNY dress though. It’s my weekender dress. It’s got a boss’s attitude, but at the same time melts seamlessly into a more carefree mood. I like a dress that can play both sides, moldable and bendable to my state of mind, whatever that may be at any particular time. Now that’s what I call full functionality. Even if my functionality will be mostly on mute this weekend.
