ALL OVER THE PLACE


Sweater - Necessary Clothing, High-Rise Jeans - BDG, Shoes - thrift

Recovering from my epic weekend in NYC. The bus ride back to Philly was a tad bit emotional for me. I really love NYC, and I wish I could have stayed longer, and especially since all my favorite people are back there. People that I have met from so many different places and from so many different backgrounds, but who all come together in one place. But then I have to stop and remember how amazing Philly is, as well, and my sweet as sugar life here. It is then that I start to breathe normally again. Besides that, I am so close to NYC. I should feel lucky that I get to go any old time I want . . . whenever I have the feeling, I can just go. I'm the luckiest girl ever. I think I have the right balance of experiences in life. Working every day 9-6 (and sometimes even longer . . . working so much makes me appreciate even more the littlest things in life, like cooking dinner or quiet time on the weekend), this blog and everything that comes along with it, my friends that make me laugh nearly every second of the day, my family back home in California, the unbreakable bond between my sister and I. My life is very, very normal (sometimes even delightfully boring), yet at the same time it feels super extraordinary. And it is all these out of this world extraordinary moments that make it feel extra special. I hold onto every moment as if they are fleeting. And I never want to give them back.

Funny how a little outfit post could get so deep. It's just that these past few weeks have been very hectic, and sometimes even very draining, and I am always doing a lot of contemplating and figuring out of things, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I am so happy that I get to do all the different things I get to do. Even the most simplest (and maybe even narcissistic) of things, like share what I am wearing with you today.

I love your post, I totally understand your feelings...sometimes I tell myself, I wish I could have a clon so I can be at different places at the same time. I live in Cali, but all my family & my friends are in Peru...luckyly I get the chance to travel there once a year :)
LA can be a little cold and hectic sometimes, anyway, I appreciate the experience of being here and the new friends I have met too :)
Ps: lovely outfit!

I miss being in L.A. close with my family and friends. But I feel the same way, just being in my new life with people I've met who are so dear to me brings me back to the ground again. Those feline printed trousers are fabulous. x

Dylana, I absolutely love reading your posts. Your insights are a pleasure to read and it feels like we get to know you so much more better :) You truly are living such an amazing life! And you're right, NYC and Philly are so close to each other, all you need is just one bus ride... oh how I wish that's how close I was to NYC :( lol not eeeven close. Both are such beautiful and unique places in their own ways, and it's great you get so experience both.
As always, love the outfit! I love how you always mix n' match prints. Stripes + leopard = thumbs up!!

xoxo, Ally
