The Brightness of Beige

My weekly 6am flights to Newark International tend never to end in any anything other than my neck pillow falling in the bathroom stall and/or the pre-coffee tift with the taxi driver.

Fate was on my side today, however. After picking my neck pillow off the ground of the bathroom, I looked up and found this nude vision coming towards me.

When I asked him for a picture, there was none of the usual "as-if" glares or "Are you kidding?! I look like shit!" exclamations. All I got was the millisecond he took to slow his roll and strike this pose. Let's be honest. I wouldn't have too much time for the measly minions either if I had that masterpiece on my shoulders.

It is a rare feat to make a statement in nude colors but the statement was definitely made. I'm still not sure where the scarf ends and the shawl begins. What I do know is is this overload of camel sure did brighten up my vanilla Monday morning.

Time for Dinner

You never know what you'll find on the streets of Manhattan at dinner time but you can bet your bottom dollar it'll be interesting.

I caught this navy and banana-yellow knit tie speeding past me on the streets of Hell's Kitchen around that sacred time and, feeling the fading of a golden (literally) opportunity, I chased after it.

To my pleasant surprise, this attractive tie was out to dinner with a loud, but endearing, pair of burnt-yellow pants, both clashing phenomenally with each other. It was a couple that I would never have pictured together, yet made perfect sense.

Bon Appetit!
