City Never Sleeps

Once my little Brits left, one of my very good friends from sunny California made a quick stop in my crazy city as she headed home from Cannes. It's hard to get a decent amount of sleep when you're constantly running around, soaking in all the city has to offer. Our way of relaxing was sitting out on my fire escape, in true New York style. I can be out there all day if time allows it! Early mornings were spent flipping through my wardrobe, putting my pals in my clothes, before heading out in the hustle and bustle. Let's just say I, in particular, couldn't stay away from band tees, full-on printed pant suits,  and flowing maxi skirts. I already miss all my little visitors...sometimes you just need a bit of home to remind you to keep things real. I've got a crazy busy work week coming up and so flipping through these images reminds me why I love this city that never sleeps.

Ah the magic that is New York. Recently was forced to be a tourist and show people around - took a night tour on those annoying red tourist buses and it seriously opened my eyes to how much we're missing in the everyday!
