This year, my valentine is my favorite city in the world, New York City! I'm not going to lie, getting adjusted in this big city is not easy, but it's not impossible either. Over the last two years, but I have slowly made a home in this massive city filled with over 8 million people. There have been ups, downs, tears, and laughter like every relationship. New York has brought so many amazing opportunities and people into my life and somehow is there to catch me when I'm feeling down to bring me right back up. It has given me so many stories that I will never forget. Even though this amazing city has ruined countless number of shoes, is overly expensive, has an array of smells that I am not that fond of, and constantly makes me late (because of the MTA subway), the city has endless benefits as well. I can go shopping till 2 o'clock in the morning, drink and dance till dawn, eat any type of food I desire, meet people of all nationalities, and completely be myself. What more could I ask for?
Every time I leave this city, on my return I see that beautiful skyline, I know I'm home.
When I visited NYC as a little girl, I knew that it was where I wanted to move to when I grew up. I got this shirt as a souvenir and a reminder to work hard until I made my dreams come true. You know I love a good logo tee and pink. So I combined the best of both worlds. I love this Aidan hot pink taffeta high low statement making skirt! I wanted to make this look cool and fun so paired it with a logo tee. Throw on a big crystal necklace with a logo t-shirt- it's an easy way to dress a t-shirt up. A little lace and leather felt just right to add to this look. The gloves are the perfect addition to complete the look.
New York, I love you!
