this past saturday we waited in line to see yayoi kusama’s i who have arrived in heaven (see the videos below). and now my mind is seeing the world through technicolor lenses–talk about a mind explosion. i was so refreshed by her work that i felt a jolt of energy to get back to my blog.
it’s been 8 months since my last post, but these past 8 months have been full of big life changes for me. so here’s the cliff note version:
in june we moved from manhattan to brooklyn, and let me tell ya–brooklyn is definitely where it’s at
in august the startup i was working for merged , and i got my first real big-girl job as a digital strategist/designer in september
traveled back and forth for work/wedding planning every month in between
i married the love of my life in september–and married life is sweet
so i guess that really does explain how time has flown by. and while i contemplated throwing in the towel on the whole fashion blogging world, i’ve decided to just keep doing this for me. i don’t want to focus on what i’m wearing so much anymore, but instead i’m going to focus on what i’m doing, where i’m going, what inspires me and little sneak peeks into my new life in the city…so stay tuned!
I was pretty excited about the snow that we got this weekend, despite how incredibly cold it’s been. Snow makes me feel giddy like a kid and all I want to do is throw my own “snow day”, which is exactly what I did! I made a big breakfast and headed out to do some shopping and exploring. One of my favorite things about this weather is watching to see how creative people are when it comes to layering. For me this typically means throwing on a tee, then a sweater, adding a lighter jacket that will fit under my heavy coats that way I can adjust the layers as needed—it’s all about planning the right amount to get you through the day.

I spent the past weekend indulging in Shake Shake and exploring the LES with my fiance. Before going out on our all day trek, I had to put on my favorite socks ever. These pairs from Soxxy have an awesome grip that prevents them from slipping which is a necessity for all day adventures around the city. Our favorite find from exploring, was South Street Seaport. Sandy reeked havoc on this little area, leaving most of the surrounding businesses in shambles.However, there are still a few places who are leading the route of recovery and have re-opened with optimism. I love this area because it’s such a an odd juxtaposition of contrasting sceneries–pirate-like ships mixed with huge skyscrapers. That’s exactly what I love about this city, it’s a beautiful mixture of everything.
After Sandy, I feel a deeper connection to the city itself, the people, and the area that I now call home. It just goes to show that this city and it’s people can really get through anything. One thing is for sure…my love for NYC has grown stronger.
