Hi guys!

Every morning when I step outside my apartment to make the commute to work, I feel a little bit more change in the air: fall is coming! Near the end of the summer I always start to transition my wardrobe to darker colors (although it's hard to get darker than the constant black I wear here in NYC). Even floral prints can go darker for late summer/early fall. This flippy little mini skirt I thrifted a few years back has long been a transitional favorite of mine. Last time I wore it here on the blog the snow was melting and spring was emerging. I was also obsessed with lavender lattes at the time. Well, nothing has changed in 6 months! Although I am acquiring quite the  craving for a pumpkin flavored lil sumthing sumthing with all the buzz surrounding the return of fall drinks. Hoping my favorite local coffee shop does a mock up of one!

Really looking forward to experiencing my first fall here in the city. I'm actually getting ready to sign a lease soon for a year at the current place I'm living. Originally when I moved to NYC without a job I had only signed a sublease for three months. I didn't want to make a long term commitment if I was unsure I could afford to live here or would even want to stay. There's been no doubt in my mind I want to at least stay in NYC for another year. When I was amidst all my health issues, my parents wanted me to move back home to figure out what was wrong. Despite how difficult it was figuring out what was wrong and handling it all myself, I knew I just couldn't move back to Ohio. This is where I'm meant to be at this moment in my life and I love it here. Sometimes I don't know if I could ever go back to living anywhere else. There's no guarantee how I'll feel a year, five, or ten from now though. The city can burn you out. I can testify to that. I just hope the bulb that's burning in me has awhile to go before it's ready to shine somewhere else. x

With much love,

Lauren

Lauren, you capture being young and in a new city so beautifully! I always enjoy reading about your adventures and shifting thoughts about your time there. Being new to the other side of the country (Los Angeles), I'm thinking about so many of the things you mention in your posts and it's nice to know that I'm not alone.

As for the skirt, it's awesome how it doesn't even look like the same item in your winter look. Super versatile (although I am a bit partial towards your late summer look <3)!

<3,
-Ada
