a long winter walk.

rockefeller center

a long winter walk is as essential as a long winter nap, though this jaunt may have taken it to the next level. it started with a walk to rockefeller center (from the upper west side), and then lead to "let's keep walking", and before you know it we're in chelsea. i don't take as many photos during these dreary months because i struggle to find beauty and color in anything, nor do i want to take my hands out of my pockets. that's not a complaint, just, well, the dang truth. but you know what? it is what it is and come spring you'll be tired of flower photos. soak in the gloomy greys! remember eeyore? i think i owned every eeyore stuffed animal imaginable.

Love the cement truck photo bomb! And the Flatiron building photo. Nothing like a nice, long walk to chase the greys away.

Sometimes the colors you would never notice in any other month becomes so much more vibrant during those gray winter days. Nice photos.

I love your boots. For me, the hardest thing this time of year is just getting out the door. Once I get outside and start walking/moving, I'm fine. The first step is the hardest!

I hate to be the person who asks where I can buy all the things, but I'd love to know where you got that coat. I've been looking for a double breasted, belted long grey/black coat since it got cold to no avail...

Thanks Rebecca! Yup, one of my pet peeves about instagram - the barrage of "where'd you get that...X" - and I have become it ;)

I love long winter walks, especially with no clear purpose or any start or end. So refreshing. Also, wow about walking all that way, kind of amazing.
