I've photos I took in this gorgeous vintage Celine Paris shirt I thrifted a few weeks ago sitting on my camera card...Last night the card broke off into the SD slot in my computer though and all my photos were lost :( A bummer! I did have the two photos above I'd emailed to myself for Instagram, so I'm glad that something was still left to post. I am OBSESSED with this Celine shirt. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the tag. It's probably the most high end brand I've ever thrifted before. For $5 I couldn't pass it by because I originally planned on selling it to a vintage shop in Brooklyn. I tried it on though back home and realized it was impeccably made, and I did really like the style of it. So, it's for keeps!
The weekends here in NYC are so lovely. Usually during the work week it's go, go, go: so, I don't have much time to relax and appreciate my surroundings. During the weekends I get to breathe a little and I realize how much I do love living in this place. Well, I always love living here, but I realize it in particular on the weekends. I feel like home. I've settled into life here and it's comforting to have consistencies again that I've created for myself. The coffee shops I frequent, the regulars I see on the train, the routes I taken to work or the grocery store...every aspect of my daily life has come together to paint a picture of living I dreamed of for so long. Things aren't perfect, but I love the life I live here and ultimately am happy with my decision. That's something I couldn't say a few weeks ago. Honestly, I was having doubts. The changes were a lot for me and I was missing the comfort of the familiar. I frequently wondered if I had made the right choice. It's hard to know if you made the right choice until you look around one day and it just hits you whether you're truly happy or just faking it. For those of you in places (physically or metaphorically speaking) that you're not happy in right now...don't let it get to you. One day you'll get to where you want to be. And when that day comes, It'll be all the more sweeter.
