i heart ny

As alluded to in my previous post, I went on a trip to New York City last month.  The trip was somewhat spontaneous, so I had just enough time to freak out about not being able to shop, but not enough time to have factored in some sort of NYC Shopping clause into my year of unbuying.

Upon announcing we were going to New York, a few friends suggested that I not let the trip to the Big Apple go un-shopped, that there must be some sort of allowance for a trip like this.  Luckily, the friends we traveled with are very aware of my "addiction" and were a big support in not only encouraging other events while in the City, but also went un-shopped themselves!

I would love to lament about how hard it was not to shop and brag of how strong I was to stick to my goals, but to be honest, the temptation passed almost unnoticed.  This was my third, and so far best, trip to NYC and I truthfully didn't even care about shopping.  The City is so alive and enchanting that all I wanted to do was walk, see, take in and be a part of the bigger exhilarating thing.  I would live in NYC in a heartbeat, if it'd have me.  

I could spend hours writing about every amazing moment that took place during the four day trip, but instead, for the purpose of this blog, I will instead take moments to share in pictures some of what I wore while living a dream.

You'll notice the theme was warm coats and toques.  It was so cold, but hours of walking and ducking in for cocktails helped!  Next time we hang out feel free to ask for my stories of New York, just the thought leaves me smiling.

  1. Congratulations on sticking to your word and passing the six month mark. NYC had to have been your biggest test. I know I would have failed since I'm a sucker for memorabilia in any new city I visit, but good on you for staying strong to your cause!
