A bohemian heart in a big old city. Always looking far and always looking up. The NYC landscape lends many options for the eyes. Photos of NYC by me.

Been such a denim girl lately. Being a little over 5’11” makes finding the perfect pair of jeans not the easiest of tasks, but thank goodness so many brands are coming out with so many great fits for us longer stemmed ones. The peek of ankle, length of the rise and stretch around the hip area are just a few of the things that I take into heavy consideration when I try on a new pair of jeans. At work, I’m either sitting for long periods of times or running all over the place. My jeans need to move with me! The comfortably placed rip at the knee on this Paige pair is made for a long day of rough and tumble excursions around the city. Literally kicking the leaves into the air and just embracing the day. This past week, mixed with all of the Halloween madness, was one of the longest and stressful. Prepping for photo shoots on top of my everyday to-do lists take a lot out of a girl! I haven’t been having time to throw on anything more than a pair of jeans and a top before rushing out to catch the subway into Manhattan. Thank goodness I have a lot of really rad denim options to get through my day with. They have been saving my life. The weekend is here and I am taking it all in and ready to check out some new parts of the city. Hell yeah.
Missing those days dearly where I could bundle up on top, but keep things a bit more bare on the bottom. NYC is legit in winter mode right now, and I just realized that I no longer have black tights without holes and runs in them! Now, let’s discuss hats. I’ve always stuck to the basic wide brimmed wool hat and the classic beanie in the winter, but I’ve always wanted to experiment with other styles. I saw the fisherman hat popping up a lot on the European blogs a few months ago, and I couldn’t help but try it out for myself with this budget friendly one from H&M. I think the fisherman hat almost beats out the wide brimmed Zorro hat on the face flattering factor. It’s unexpected for sure, and I definitely still get stares on the streets when I wear this one out, but I am delighted with it. It’s a new staple in my wardrobe this season.
I’m back on a Lana Del Rey kick. And it might or might not be because of the fact that I spotted her shopping in Sephora this past weekend. I was like OMG it’s Lana and I instantly started singing Young And Beautiful in my head all day afterwards. I am such a dork. Oh well. Gotta love me some Lana Del Rey every now and then.
