Empire State of Mind

“One hand in the air for the big city
Street lights big dreams all looking pretty
No place in the world that can compare
Put your lighters in the air, everybody say yeeeeah!
In New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it from New York!”
That’s right. I sang that song everyday while I was in New York City (literally everyday haha), because it’s the truth! You walk into Time Square, Madison Square Garden, Central Park, or walk across the high line in Chelsea, and you just take a step back and think of all the things you are capable of doing! There is something in the air of New York that wants you to follow your dreams!
Let me take a real step back now, and share with you my New York swag. (If you can even call it that ;)) My look is super chill, yet with a sprinkle of sexy. I have paired this amazing oversized cardigan with this funky baggy dress. To give myself a little more of a feminine look, I zipped on my wedged booties…Any time I put on any type of shoe that will give me length, I feel a little more lady like. A little more sexy. I don’t know about you, but I love to add a hat any chance I get! Whether it is a Panama hat, baseball cap, or a beanie, I AM IN! Hats are my favorite. I added this beanie in honor of the touch of fall that is in the air!
How do you like this outfit? Funky enough for you? Because it is for me!
