After a two week hiatus, an exceptionally long break in the blogging world, I am excited to share with you all a fresh bunch of snaps from my USA adventure. This post comes to you all the way from the incomparable New York City, where the last two weeks of my trip were spent.
I really dont know where to start. How do you put into words the feelings and emotions you experience that first time you jump out of a yellow cab into the big smoke that is New York City? And while this was my third time visiting the city of dreams, somehow you are always just as overwhelmed and ecstatic as if it was your first time there all over again. NYC really is a shock to your senses. There is no skyline in the world more famous and iconic than New York and while movies and photographs do a decent job of capturing its impressiveness nothing can prepare you for witnessing it with your own eyes. It truly is spectacular.
New York City is an oasis for creative talent. A Mecca for Photographers, Stylists, Make up artists, designers, aspiring actors and recording artists and more specifically bloggers, and not just of the fashion type but from lifestyle, food and beauty backgrounds also. For those striving towards one of these career paths there is nowhere in the world where your dreams feel more valid and achievable than New York City.
With all that inspiration fresh and pulsing through my veins I set out to shoot some outfits only this time it went a little differently. Instead of having an array of well executed outfits up my sleeve I decided that we just snap away what ever I was wearing throughout the day wherever it inspired us most. On this day it just so happened to be the beautiful yet quirky borough of Brooklyn. The day went a little something like this…
To Kick the day off we took a trip down to the financial distric to visit the NYSE and the famous wall street bull, lining up for the obligatory tourist selfie rubbing the bulls testicles for good luck. Hunger soon set in so we decided to head down the road to china town to a busy little spot called Vanessas dumpling house which Yelp assured me was the best dumplings in the city. It did not dissapoint. I ordered what felt like the entire menu, to feed three people and enough left over to feed some of chinatowns homeless for a mere $22. It was delicious, a must visit for all you dumpling lovers out there. With a belly full of fried goodness we decided to hire bikes and ride over manhattan bridge to Dumbo, Brooklyn, a beautiful way to see the city. upon arriving on the other side we rode along the water and then all the way up to Williamsburg and Queens.
Of course with all this physical activity in mind I dressed comfortably. Never make the mistake of wearing heels or restrictive clothing out during the day in NYC, you will regret it. There is always the option of comfortably stylish attire. Cons, denim shorts and a bargain turtle neck from H&M will not disappoint.
