New York fashion – it is such a beautiful thing.
Honestly, that is what I was most excited about when I first found out that I would be moving to Manhattan. All I could imagine in my head was being able to dress up like Carrie Bradshaw everyday without having anyone judge me as I walked down the street. I have always had a passion for experimenting with style, but I felt like I never lived in a city that could accept or admire it. It was so refreshing to step outside for the first time and be completely comfortable with myself and what I was wearing. I mean, I was always confident enough to wear what I wanted in other cities, but it did bug me when others would constantly ask, “what are you wearing!?!?” At least the joke was usually on them when a few months down the line my outfit inspirations became the new hip thing that everyone had to get their hands on! That’s the perk of being able to study fashion trends – having the ability to forecast what the next big thing will be. People may look at you like you’re crazy when they see it for the first time, but I know in the back of my head that they will be reaching for the same pieces soon enough.
Christmas in New York.
Oh, how sweet that sounds. I have been counting down the days for December to hit so it would be socially acceptable to start getting in to the holiday spirit. I have never been in the Big Apple during the holidays, but I already know that I’m going to love it. The city is buzzing with joy and almost every street corner is covered in twinkling lights and holiday decor! Where ever I go, I literally feel like I’m walking through a Lifetime Holiday movie set.
Another weekend has come and gone in the blink of an eye.
Though I feel that these weekends never seem to be long enough, it excites me to know that the faster they go, the sooner the day will come that I get to marry the love of my life. We keep on telling ourselves that “this weekend is going to be a lazy weekend” but somehow we always find new adventures to fill up our time. This time our adventurous hearts took us to Coney Island.
New York may not be known as the “city of love” but it will be the city where mine and Zach’s love grows as a married couple. When thinking about where we might want to get our engagement photos done, we immediately thought of what will be our first home together – New York City. It may not be the location where either of us grew up, or the place where we got engaged, but it is the city where we will start our new adventure as husband and wife.
