If there’s one colour I wear A LOT of here in New York it is, undoubtedly, black. And trust me I’m not alone. But my favourite pop of colour to add in is definitely electric blue. It’s always been one of my favourite colours to wear and I was so happy to spot this blue jumper in Penneys/Primark while I was at home during Christmas. Just incase you can’t find it, I did a little search and found a similar one Here. I also really want this baby blue version – it would be so nice with white skinnies once it gets a little warmer.

If you’re a regular follower, you’ll know that I always include a quote (like above) in each of my outfit posts. It’s something I started doing last year and although it usually involves a lot of time searching (and getting distracted) on Pinterest, I love adding them in. I came across this particular one last night and it just hit home. Sometimes, living in New York makes me question a few things. There are days where I ask myself why I spend such crazy money on rent, why I work insane hours… why I make things harder than they could be. Traveling and being away from home, in general, isn’t always as great as it looks and quite honestly, involves bravery. Instead of going down a similar route to a lot of my friends and continuing onto a Masters/Post-Grad after my degree, I bit the bullet and decided to start blogging full-time for a year. After that year, as you know, I moved to New York to keep working towards my goals and (cringe, I know)…dreams. I just know that if I didn’t do it the way I did, I always would have wondered. So basically what I’m trying to say (long story short) is that it’s always best to go with your gut, bite the bullet, take that risk…even if it means going half insane in the process. I may not have everything figured out just yet, but I’m having a lot of fun on the way.
