Ahh.. New York City.

I don't think I can really put into words how I feel about New York City, but I'm going to try in this post. My feelings are kind of contradictory. I have a love/hate relationship with the city and the same things I love, I somehow also hate. You know how that goes! There's so much love there, but there's pretty much equally as much hate. I'll try to explain. I love how everyone always seems like they have somewhere important to go. I like imagining what each person's day is like. I respect the fashion freedom that New York brings. The spirit in the air inspires me to be a better me. Every time I'm in the city, I feel like I'm completely limitless. I feel like anything I want to do, I can do and I lose all insecurities and I'm just... fearless.

On the flip side, sometimes the rush is overwhelming! All of the people, the constant rush around the city, the need to feel busy. It's easy to feel small in a space so large. Every time I visit New York City, I'm always super excited to get there, but then I'm equally as excited to go by the end of my visit. I can only take so much of the city at once, but then once I'm gone I miss it so much. It's soooo confusing to myself, so I'm sure it's confusing to all of you. One thing I do know is that New York City has so much to offer to those who equally want to receive it.

For those who truly know me, you'll know my husband lived in New York for about three and a half years, so I've visited the city a great deal of times. However, this last time felt so much different to me. I felt inspired by people I didn't know. I just wanted to do great things. I think a city like New York City has a certain aura that pushes you to be greater, if that makes sense. It's like my drive intensified just by being there. Call it a coincidence if you want, but I don't necessarily believe in coincidences. I think I have developed a different type of love than I have ever had before. I'm not sure what that means for me because as of now, I still don't want to live there, but I do really love the city and I guess that I'm not 100% closed off to the idea anymore (don't tell my husband, he will be too excited).

On another note, during the summer y'all know my obsession has been 'cold shoulder' clothing. Well, now that Fall is upon us, I think my new obsession is going to be BELL SLEEVES! Oh my goodness, I just LOVE it so much! Oh, and would y'all believe me if I told y'all this dress had SHORTS under it?! I had no idea when I bought it! I got it home and went to try it on and couldn't figure out why I couldn't put it over my head haha! It's like a dromper (dress...romper..get it?). 

Thank you so much for reading! XOXO
