New york: The city that doesn’t let me sleep

*Bloglovin’ * Facebook * Twitter

I have bloggers block.

I never plan out my posts, so I’m not sure it’s possible to have this so-called block, but let’s pretend it is so I can just share a lot of pictures, mkay?

Come take a walk with me in New York.


*Dress: Urban Outfitters. *Boots: Target. *Bag: Claire’s (Yes, as in Claire’s. Should I be embarrassed that I think Claire’s actually has some good stuff?).

Let’s start in Times Square. We stayed fairly close to Times Square, so we walked through it multiple times a day, or drove through it on the double decker buses. Coming from a smaller city, it was amazing to see all the activity in such a small area.


Here’s a little Angelina Jolie leg action for ya.

I actually learned quite a bit while in New York.

One: cars do not stop. Pedestrians do not stop. It’s scary.



Two: It is hot. Like, “Did I go on vacation in a sauna?” hot. My hair does not like humidity (This was not something I learned, rather that was reinforced).


Three: The naked cowboy must get a lot of tips, because he is still in the same spot he was in when I obsessively watched TRL. He made me touch his behind; it was sweaty (see #2) and hairy.


This picture has no lesson. I just like it. Consider it an intermission, sponsored by Aldo.

Take a ride with me. It’s only $1.25.

Four: Subway stations are extremely hot and muggy. Subways, however, are air conditioned and a great place to people watch, eavesdrop, and be threatened (true story).





Apparently, I am supposed to cut the piece that connects the back slit in this dress. I like it better connected (panty flashing control).


Let’s end on a walk through Brooklyn.

Five: I adore this area (as well as the Village)
(Please eat at La Nonna’s in Williamsburg. Best bruschetta I’ve had in my life.)


Six: Check the weather before you go out. You may get caught in a thunder storm. But it will still be 1,000 degrees.


Seven: If it’s July, you will never need that extra jacket when you go out at night.


I was going on hour 42 without sleep by this point

Thanks for spending the day with me; I hope we can do it again real soon. Say, Wednesday? Same time-ish.

if you follow me on Instagram (@seekingstyle) there are more personal pictures from my vacation if you are interested in being creepy, a stalker seeing them.

    I was just there last week and it was freaking hot! Funniest day was on Sunday when it was sweltering, but there was a pleasant rain & thunderstorm at night.

  4. I always enjoy reading your posts. The summer here in NYC is exactly as you described. For two months straight. Disgustingly hot, humid, & with random thunderstorms.
    But you managed to look amazing nonetheless…& I love you’re hair even with the humidity. I don’t know how you managed with those boots though (they look great, but I just can’t stand anything closed-toe in the summer).

    Stay fab,

    Some great tips here! Adam and I are headed to NYC next week and are looking for recommendations. I’m definitely dreading the humidity and hot subway platforms.

  30. your dress is amazing! seriously. love it. thank for taking me on your trip (via internet) – if I’d been there in person my hair would most certainly have been friends with your hair – if there was enough space in the humid city for both our mops

    we went to nyc in sept & it was just as hot, muggy, & rainy. a couple months ago, my hairdresser told me that pedestrians do NOT have the right of way in nyc. i was like why doesn’t anyone talk about this? is it an unwritten rule, or law? cause even when the light was green and the walk sigh was on i would get honked at, & they would just drive around me. you look fantastic. i can see why you’d keep the bottom of dress attached, no panty flashes in this post. why do you call your guy ugly mug?
