The Wilderness of NYC

Who would have known that in the urban jungle that is NYC, there would be this little niche? Yesterday we went exploring through Van Cortland Park which is practically in my backyard! I walked past it so many times but had never gone in to check it out.

 I think this will end up becoming a new favorite place of mine. It was so nice to sit by the water and read a book, but at the same time it is a great place to go running too. There are soccer fields, ponds, open grassy areas, and more. It's actually bigger than Central Park.
 I felt like my outfit inadvertently matched the more rustic setting. It's also finally starting to feel like fall, so I'm loving breaking out my warmer clothes. Sweater season here we come!

 I'm loving New York so far, and I've had some of the best opportunities since I've been here. Yesterday we went into East Village to do some shopping and eat crepes.

Smile for the camera! Ok, enough cheesy dialogue. 
While we were taking this picture, the owner of the house we were in front of came back with their groceries. Needless to say they gave us some strange looks, but that's the beauty of a big city right? The people who think you're weird are probably never going to see you again...


My Night on Top of The Strand

On Sunday night, I got to spend the evening again with the lovely Victoria (torihatesyou) and Drew (DrewDoleski) at The Top of the Strand. And can I first say, what a view! It's moments like this when it truly hits me, I'm in New York, baby!

With Tori!

Fashion's Night Out!

I had a blast this Fashion's Night Out and it was especially awesome because I got to meet up with Victoria (@torihatesyou) for the festivities.

First off, my outfit. I wanted to make a statement but I needed to make sure I was comfortable for all the trecking around I would be doing.
Blazer: H&M, Shirt: Thrifted, Leather skirt: Forever21, Bag: X-Generation
First stop was Diane von Furstenberg.

The Lady of the Hour herself.

There was a fun photo session where we got our very own flipbook
 We stopped by a couple more places before we saw a scene on the street. Oh hey, Betsey.

Getting a touch-up on my makeup!
 It was such a fun evening. I love seeing "fashion people" and not-so-fashion-y people come together to celebrate something that is so near and dear to my heart. I love being surrounded in this world, and especially in New York. I hope to never lose this feeling of excitement about it.


Let's Hear It For New York

This has been such a whirl-wind time in my life. From getting back from Paris, to making the big move to New York it has been crazyand I apologize again for the lack of updates. Meanwhile, here are some of the pictures that I have taken so far in NYC.

Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

I have been definitely over doing the shopping recently, especially after all the shopping I did in Paris.

However, I have gotten some pretty good deals while I have been back (including 2 sweaters under $15, which I'm sure you'll see more of later). This is one of the outfits that I wore on one of those shopping days.

Summer Days Driftin' Away

It seems crazy that I'm back from Paris already. It was way too fast of a trip and it feels like college is around the corner. I miss Paris so much. I miss my friends there. I miss the city. And it made me realize even more that one day I need to live in Paris, no questions asked.

For now though, here are some pictures from one of the last graduation parties I went to for the year.
