dress: chi chi & the greek, shoes: zara
some more snapshots from my trip back home a little while back.. how STUNNING is this church? kirk in the hills makes the perfect backdrop for this awesome dress from my favorite vintage store in michigan. sitting here in NY, i'm really missing these rolling hills of green, the canopy of trees and wide open spaces that i have become accustomed to while living in michigan. while NY certainly doesn't have the same flora as the mitten, the season of fall (sans multi-colored trees) is still my favorite. spent this morning sitting in my favorite cafe, enjoying a chai latte feeling the crisp autumn breeze through the open windows. it is no longer dreadfully hot, i'm not covered in a layer of grime upon emerging above ground from the subways and everyone seems to have chilled out a bit themselves. 'tis the season! all i need right now is a bicycle. been looking for one for a few weeks now, but can't seem to find exactly what i'm looking for. perhaps its not really the time anyway, since there is only a month left of riding weather. not sure if i am bold enough for bearing the winter of NY on my own two wheels...
i once read a tweet that was something along the lines of "the best part of living in NYC is you can put your headphones on and feel like you're living in a movie" and its SO true. the soundtrack to my life right now:
seriously, i belonged in the 80's for more than just the one year i spent in that decade :/ SO ridiculously excited for their show opening for the xx next month. i have already failed to see the xx twice already, and its about time i have the chance to be graced by their musical presence, that too while sitting in a theatre from 1929 in the bronx!
