Fashion Week in NYC has begun and already the shows, parties, and streets are flooded with the balm of style. I love this time of year because the city has a different mood or vibe about it. Everything in the city seems to be affected in some way.
It’s that time of the year day when I’m really in the mood to buy new shoes, but can never decide what I actually want. Shoes are really one of my favorite parts of an outfit, and I really do not have that many pairs. I think it might be time to get a new pair that I can wear all the time for fall and winter. I actually really want all three of these shoes below, but don’t have the funds. Check out more on Solestruck.com (or any site you know of) and send me links on Twitter to the coolest pairs you find! Thanks!! pt
I’m back….becoming really frustrated with how badly I am with keeping up with this blog. It’ll feel like two weeks has gone by and then I’ll check and it’s been 6 months. I think it’s a good sign that I have so much going and staying so busy that I don’t have time to post…but at the same time it might also mean that I don’t give this the time and attention that I really want to. That all being said, I’m making a promise to post here from now a lot more often. pt
My best friend, Jessica came into the city for the weekend. She is from back home, in Kansas, and helped me move back out here a few months ago. I get really excited when people from home come out here, but she is really the only person who comes out here to ever visit me. Something about hanging out with Jessica just makes me feel really comfortable. She accepts me, and I accept her. We accept all of each other’s chaos, madness, and ridiculousness. I had so much fun with her this weekend. We celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with all my friends, shopped in Soho, went to New Jersey hang out with Bobby, ate so much junk food, and went on middle-of-the-night adventures in the city. Everyone kept calling her “Kansas” and commenting on her accent, but I barely notice it because I’m so used to it.
So glad that she came out, and I hoped she had as much fun as I did. pt
Me and my friend Sara on St. Patrick’s Day in her building’s lobby before heading uptown for the parade.
The parade on 5th Avenue. We only stayed uptown at the parade for a little bit of time, because the snow was pouring down and we couldn’t see much of anything through the blizzard.
I am finally back into the swing of things and used to living in NYC all over again. School seems like it just started up, but I’m already taking midterms this week. I just got a job, and I’m already going on interviews for a new one today after class. So much is starting and changing and progressing. I love the things that come along with change and growth. New friends, new experiences, and wild adventures. Got stopped on the street the other day by some streetsyle photographer. The picture will be posted below. Check out his work too (Muerdennubes). pt

My computer kept freezing over and over every single time I tried to make a composite of images of my bedroom. My computer froze when I was near the end of making it, so I just took a screenshot before I Force Quit out of Photoshop. That’s the best I can do, SORRY!
I filled my room with white and black pillows, lights, frames, blankets, and other accessories to make it a super monochromatic and minimalistic atmosphere. I also used two different sized masking tapes to create designs and frames on my walls and closet doors. It is obviously difficult putting together a completely new room on a little budget, but I also think it is kind of fun at the same time. pt
So I haven’t posted anything since I survived my trip to NYC and hurricane Sandy, but so much has happened. I blame my lack of free time. Anyway, I have been back living in New York City for the past three weeks now, and I happened to find a job right after moving back to the city. It’s hard going from getting a big check, to getting tiny checks (especially when you are paying for your own rent in New York).
Dont get me wrong though, being back in the city is EXACTLY what I wanted, and now that I made it back here I will never take it for granted again. This is where I am most happy, and where I feel and know I belong. My new apartment is on the lower side and hopefully I’ll be able to take some pics of my new room and upload them in a later post. Here’s the outside for now. Sorry for the google screenshot, but I am just too lazy to go outside and take a picture of it right now. pt
