I had forgotten how obsessed I was with these Michael Kors lace-up boots last winter... they are still super comfortable and perfect for running around town.

After grabbing an iced creme brulee latte today, I sat down and answered a whole bunch of emails- apologies if it ever takes me a while to get to them, truly trying my best to answer them as quickly as possible!

My brother is taking a photography class at school and he's gotten really good at it... I let him shoot a couple photos today with my Canon before grabbing some lunch at one of my favorite cafe.

Shout-out to my boyfriend for getting me these cropped Acne trousers as a birthday gift! Love them! Please excuse my toe cleavage- there is something about my feet being strapped and zipped up in shoes that makes me feel a little bit more comfortable.

Conquering Lion

Heading out to a sushi dinner, but wanted to post these photos before I left... 

I checked out Coach's showroom not too long ago and picked up one of their pretty clutches... seriously love it. Must admit I was really impressed with the new stuff they're coming out with!

Pocket Box

I am currently eating the most expensive burger I've ever had and kind of sad that I'll be leaving this incredible city tomorrow..

Went vintage-scouring down in Soho and found a few kind of crazy pieces like a ridiculously oversized lapel jacket, a floral embossed leather clutch, and a strapless sequined rose-print bustier. 

If you're ever in New York, check out Screaming Mimi's and Tokio7!

Wet Your Lips

Rainy, windy weather caught me completely off-guard leading me to several outfit changes this morning... started off with a mesh tutu skirt then changed to a knitted cut-out sweater, then finally decided these super skinny H&M jeans and massive Acne wedges would be perfect for walking my feet off around the city. Stupid idea... my poor feet were dying so I changed to equally uncomfortable bow ballet flats and socks. 

Switched to a different hotel down by the financial district, now I'm even farther away from everything! Breakfast at Le Parker Meridien tomorrow morning hopefully!

Starbucks used to be on every corner in New York city like two years ago... now I have to literally search like five blocks for one.

So tired, the deadly kind of tired. Must get some sleep now!

Finer Things

Just came back from dinner with the Coach crew and a few other bloggers and it was tons of fun- Rumi and I spent most of our time laughing at random nonsense, then took a taxi back to the hotel, and now I'm here eating trail mix and Reese's pieces. 

Pretty excited for the rest of the week, not going to lie!

Fooling Around

Trying to pack for New York has turned out to be harder than I thought... My mom and I have already stuffed a suitcase with all kinds of footwear that I highly doubt we'll even wear, and I also feel like I'll be wearing more than one outfit a day, which means more luggage to drag behind me... it all seems like a disaster right about now.

These random shots were taken yesterday during one of my many five minute breaks I took while working on my school projects. I attempted to play around with a few pieces to see if I could at least get some sort of idea of what to wear while on the east coast... the idea of a fluorescent color paired with something rather dull and simple seems kind of cool, except for I don't want to look like a neon traffic sign in the middle of Central Park.
