I Heart NYC

It’s Monday, which means back to work, but a girl can fantasize about being somewhere else, right?

Skirt:  eShakti (Sold out on-line; Available in black here)

Today, I explored the juxtaposition of a casual sweatshirt with fancier pieces.  I paired my NYC love sweatshirt with my pink tulle skirt, lace-up heels, and a necklace with bling.

Necklace:  LOFT
Sweatshirt:  Wet Seal

I do love New York!  Being from small town USA and a pretty laid-back gal, the hustle and bustle of NYC probably wouldn’t be my ideal for long-term living.  That said, I have visited twice and am looking forward to more visits. 

In fact, it was around this time last year that I last had an opportunity to visit New York for the second time.  The street culture and other dynamics of the city nurture my sociological mind, and I feel like I’ve only begun to scratch the surface of what NYC has to explore.

Shoes:  Prabal Gurung for Target
Ring:  Target
Bracelets:  Torrid and The Limited

I’ve always had a strong desire to travel the world.  So far, my journeys have only taken me to various parts of North America, but I feel so fortunate to have seen so much of the United States and small parts of Canada and Mexico.  

Maybe it is because I can be more of a loner, an introvert who usually feels a little awkward socially, but I have never felt a strong tie to a base location or a need to nest, if you will.  The idea of traveling through life sounds wonderful to me!  I feel like I have so much more exploring to do!

Purse:  The Limited (old)

Do you have a wandering nature or are you more of a nester?

  1. Oh I adore this outfit, I love the girly pink tutu with the grey sweatshirt! Oh and those shoes are gorgeous, I wish I could wear shoes like those, I have a hard time with heels especially open toe ones. But yeah I would love to go to NYC, I haven't had the opportunity to go but I hope to one day. But I like exploring but I haven't been to many places but I like to think maybe one day! 🙂
