Roofs in New York City are a special thing… The city is immense and no matter where you go, you’re surrounded by tall buildings. When you’re at the top, you feel like the smallest person yet you feel like the whole world belongs to you. After walking up the stairs of an East Village building (and feeling quite out of breath), you reach the place where you can spend some time with yourself and take in the city as a whole. You watch the sun go down that reflects from the glass windows across the street. On those days where you feel a little down, the roof seems just slightly magical.
Spice up your outfit with a statement mini skirt for the spring/summer. If it isn’t warm enough, do it anyway by topping it off with a cozy sweater and a semi-long coat. Wrap it up, buckle it, add fringe to it, whatever you want. But go on, show off those legs.
“Enjoying life’s simple pleasures”. It’s all you have to do when it’s cold outside or you don’t necessarily feel like leaving the house. Spending time with friends by the fireside, reading a book, laying and rolling in bed for a while, taking a bath. Nothing beats those cozy moments when you don’t only feel warm on the outside, but also on the inside. Cherish and treasure them, let it ignite and cuddle your soul.
The first signs of spring are starting to show in Paris, which is wonderful because the flowers are blooming and the climate is warmer. Everyone finally gets out of hibernation mode to enjoy the streaks of sunshine and to soak up that Vitamin D that one desperately needs after winter. The thing about spring is that it gets tricky trying to figure out what to wear because the mornings tend to be cold whereas the afternoons are warmer. It’s that hesitation between either wearing a summer jacket or a winter coat, yet by the end of the day one always seems to take their extra layer off just to feel what it’s like to be in a shirt again.
Experiencing winter in NYC isn’t always the most enjoyable. Anyone who lives there can say they are blessed by a snowstorm each year. The first few moments where the snow sticks to the ground, making everything look peaceful and enchanting, are indeed delightful. However, once the snow turns into slush in a busy city like New York, it ain’t so pretty anymore. There’s a constant struggle of not really knowing what to wear to avoid getting your clothes dirty from all the mush, and especially trying to jump over it in the sidewalks.
