New York Fashion and Personal Style Blog: We Are Living Our Adventure

Wore this little number out to celebrate my birthday last week. I must say…I’m super excited to be 25! The past year has been a complete whirlwind/roller coaster, to say the least. New city, new career, new apartments, and so many new challenges and heartaches to overcome. After a few solid months in Chelsea, I’m now living solo in the Lower East Side, and feeling fortunate to be working on things that inspire me on an ongoing basis. It seems like every day brings some kind of new surprise, and I’m just trying to soak up every minute of it! Life isn’t always easy, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fucking awesome.

Pardon this little public reflection — I don’t mean to get all weird and nostalgic. Maybe this is just what happens when you hit the quarter century mark. Before I shut up though, I just want to thank you, my lovely friends and readers, for joining me on this journey. I am really looking forward to my 26th year on this planet and hope you’ll stick around and enjoy it with me! ♥

I’m liking these reflections – I think birthdays are an especially good time to step back and take a look at the past year and what’s to come. Happy birthday to you – 25 is an exciting one! And as usual, gorgeous look – love that dress.

We are very proud of you! You have handled NY and all the changes in your life very well. Moving across the country and taking on the city by yourself is quite an accomplishment! Maybe it is in your blood, since I was born in Brooklyn! :)
