The last few days have been rough to say the least. Late on Wednesday evening while in Cincinnati I was struck with food poisoning and my god…I got so ill. For nearly 24 hours I was violently ill and alone in a hotel room and it was awful. I had a flight booked Thursday afternoon to San Francisco for a long weekend and I barely made it onto the plane. I had to sit in the plane bathroom for a while just to be able to not be in my seat and use wheelchairs at both airports. In the end I made it – with God on my side no doubt.


I knew that if I didn’t make it on that plane though I may not make it to San Francisco at all. It took every ounce of will I had to make it happen and while I’ve been recovering slowly and surely (eating all the bland food and drinking all the Gatorade this city has to offer), it was worth it to be reunited with my best friends. I guess I’ll just have to return again soon, fully healthy to eat all my old favorites, right?


Meanwhile, I shot these photos when it was 9 degrees out in New York – HOLY COW. My hands near fell off but the price for personal style blogging I guess? Thank God these legging jeans run so tight it was like wearing warm spanx (They are perfect for wearing with boots/booties of any kind since they fit like leggings).


And I’ve continued to rotate my layering of Everlane basics (they are seriously the best) to try and bundle as best as possible.


I won’t lie though…being in San Francisco in the 50 degree weather is seriously so divine. I’ve missed enjoying being outdoors! I sure do appreciate the seasons in New York City but every time I am back in my old home out West my heart breaks a little. I miss my best friends, my favorite places, the beautiful views and the old routines I had. Sometimes I wish I could split my time 50/50…wishful thinking, I know. Do you feel this way about 2 places?


If you’re working today…I hope it goes quickly! If you’re off like me, enjoy the day. XO

    Oh, being sick is never fun!! I had something similar-ish happen before going to Mexico (I know, the irony) and it was terrible. It also made me really anxious about getting on the plane! Glad to hear you’re feeling better, though 🙂

    I’m so sorry that you traveled while you were so sick. That is no fun at all!

    I feel you about wanting to split time between two cities! I feel the same way about LA and Charlottesville, VA. I love where I live, but every time I’m in VA, I never want to leave.

    We all need floo powder I tell you! 🙂

    Hope you are feeling better soon!
