HOLY MOLY! What a great week! Currently I am on my fifth day of being in The Big Apple, and loving every second of it. I go back to Kentucky on Saturday and I already miss New York...How is that possible??? I am in NYC right now! Just the thought of leaving the city makes me to press a fast forward button to when I will be here next. LOL, wouldn't that be nice?
I've done just about anything and everything all fashionistas would want to do while in the city: strolls down 5th Avenue, fashion classes, shopping in Soho (twice...hehe), and a photo shoot on the top of the Rockefeller Center. The Rock definitely has been one of my favorite parts of this trip. Everyone is so quiet at the top, and the views are breath taking. A little FYI: The lines at the Rock are super short depending on what time of day you go, and this is probably the best view of the city. My friends and I went around 7pm-9pm. This was perfect because we saw the city before sunset, during sunset, and a few minutes after it was dark. Around 9pm it started to get crowded, so I don't know if I would recommend going during that time. Keep in mind that this is summer, so the best times to go probably change with the season.
Now let's dive into the fashion! How do you wear all black in summer? Wearing all black, and pairing it with a dark lip can be a bold move, especially when it's not fall or winter. What better place to be a risk taker than in NYC? Being colorless can get boring unless you style it right, so it is essential to mix it up by wearing a few statement pieces. I paired my black Seven For All Mankind jeans with this super cute boxy black shirt. I would classify this shirt as the statement piece for this look, but I still wanted to jazz it up some more. I did this by adding my new Chanel earrings, and a hat.... Of course I needed a hat, because manHATtan...ha. Never forget, accessories are EVERYTHING!! ALSO OH MY FREAKING FRACK these earrings! I saw them at a vintage Chanel store in Soho and instantly fell in love. Sorry boys, my heart's taken.
Ta-ta for now!! I'm off to bite into another day in The Big Apple...
