After sorting, editing, and exporting these photos I realized something– I am basically dressed like Mr. Rodgers, and I think that's awesome. My sweatshirt isn't quite a zip up cardigan, and I may be wearing a flashy necklace instead of a tie, but you have to admit that I'm pretty dang close. I'm all for striking a balance between masculine and feminine, casual and dressy and I think this outfit does a stellar job at that. Dirty converse, ripped jeans and a sweatshirt keep this outfit pretty laid back and relaxed, but the oxford and shiny necklace under the collar add just enough to keep this from looking like I rolled straight out of bed. I scored this sweatshirt for only $5 the other day when Uniqlo was having their massive anniversary sale, and I can't wait to wear it during the holiday season!
I wore this on a tea date on the upper west side with my roommate and let me tell you, if there are stoops and brownstones around, you can guarantee that I will fall in love with the area. I find that my favorite parts of the city are the more quiet areas because you can relax and enjoy the scenery but you know that the hustle and bustle of the city is just a short subway ride away. As I explore different parts of the city, I love thinking about if I could imagine myself living there, and I could totally imagine living on the upper west side– just not until I start making upper west side money
