Ok well now I am finally showing you some of my photos from NY! I took 450+ so this is truly only a small sampling of the trip. I warn you that most of the pics are very touristy, as I tend to get overly excited the first time I visit something and take the more mainstream pictures and miss the beautiful natural shot that was occuring as I took 20 of the same shot of a building. C'est la vie! But, next time I go I will have have the benefit of seeing most of these things and that way I will truly be able to capture the city. I apolgize in advance for the fact that you can't really get good views of my outfits. I am still new to all this and have so much to learn from you experienced bloggers :). I am hoping to be brave enough to do my very first real outfit post tomorrow, so stay tuned and I welcome any and all feedback! But for now, here are a few of my favorite shots from the trip.
|My first photo from atop the Empire State building! I have been totally fascinated by this city for as long as I can remember and I was thrilled to finally be experiencing it myself.|
|I have wanted to be on top of the empire state building ever since I saw An Affair to Remember and fell in love with the tragic romantic symbolism of the building. This was really a dream fulfilled.|
|Finally seeing New York City!|
|So powerful to be in NYC on 9/11 and to really take time and remember the horrific events of the day, but know that we have prevailed as a strong and united force.|
|I could never life in this city, but it is phenomenally gorgeous and fantastic to visit!|
|FNO ad on the side of the HUGE Macy's! I definitely need to go back and visit this historic store on my next trip.|
|Paris BFFs in Times Square! (of course I had to be holding food-shocking!)|
|I LOVE Central Park. It is so relaxing and peaceful compared to the noise of the city.|
|The Park is so old school romantic to me. I love that you can escape the craziness of the city and find a rock to relax and unwind, while doing some fabulous people watching.|
|Going out for FNO!! Sorry it isn't a fully body shot, but I plan on using this as an outfit post soon anyways. Blazer: Elie Tahari, dress: H&M, earrings and bracelet: borrowed from my wonderful mom.|
|Goofing off before going out with the self timer on my camera.|
Ok I have more pics to come from our second day, but after three failed attempts at this post which has kept me up way past my bedtime I have to turn in! And don't forget to let me hear from you ladies. Where is your favorite place in NYC? If you haven't been, what are you dying to visit in the city? Have a fantastic Thursday everyone and remember to stay classy!
