In The New Year

Jimmy and I on New Year's Eve in Maui. I wore a Chloe dress, Araks romper, and Vivienne Westwood x Melissa heels.

I just got back from my vacation, and have endured the trauma of leaving the 85 degree beaches of Maui for the 19 degree snowy streets of New York. What a pleasant welcome home (which incidentally is only a shade warmer on the inside than on the outside). I'm consoling myself with plenty of Christmas chocolates and pictures from New Year's, which we spent on the beach, and at The Garden of Eden Arboretum, a botanical garden filled with tropical flora and fauna from around the world. The only pleasant thing to await me when I got home was a Christmas card from my in-laws, featuring a picture of their Spanish Water Dogs, Triza and Zelma, frolicking in the snow. Obviously they like the cold weather a lot more than I do.

Jimmy standing on the overlook of the gorge in The Garden of Eden. The gorge provided the backdrop for the opening scene of Jurassic Park.

Shedded pink petals provided a pretty ground cover. Something Else dress, Topshop Unique cardigan, Keds sneakers, Triskaidekaphobia necklace, Topshop headband.

The best looking dogs I know, Zelma and Triza, wish you a Happy New Year. Photographed by my sister-in-law, Julia. Dog lovers, make sure to take a look at the website for their kennel, Perro Rizados.
