NEW YORK CITY: SHADES OF PURPLE

With unbearable weather, sometimes the best option is wearing your PJ's and a warm, cozy sweater to layer them up. 
I'm not a huge fan of combining different tones of the same color, specially when it comes to purple, but apparently bad weather makes me lose my eye sight as well, and I didn't notice my beanie was purple until I saw the pictures. 
In any case, I actually liked the unexpected mix of purples going on.

NEW YORK CITY: THESE STREETS

We definitely all go through phases.
When I first started my blog, 3, 4 or 5 years ago (yes, my Memory is that bad), I went through a high heel phase.
Of course, at the time, Jeffrey Campbell was a big deal, for me at least, and so I basically collected them all, from Litas to the Ticks.
Through out the years, I am unsure if it has to do with my laziness becoming more incorporated when it comes to getting dressed, but, I have stabilized with being a hardly ever heel person, sticking with Supergas and flats as much as I possibly can.
Here though, I grant you with one of my, now, rarely seen shoe situation, but I couldn't resist getting a bit girlier with these Guess shoes.
Of course though, if I am to wear heels, it has to be accompanied by the coziest and most oversized layers like my (rarely seen not wearing) turtle neck, Fendi sunnies, and this Never Fully Dressed coat.

NEW YORK CITY: AFTERNOON IN DUMBO

I believe we are all guilty of comfortably sticking to all black outfits, when lacking inspiration, time or simply want to cover up any remaining holiday (or including summer) extras.
I, myself, am a lover of the simplicity yet elegance and easiness of an all black outfit, but, what I like even more, is adding the perfect pop of color and texture with one of those extra flamboyant pieces we all have (or should have) in our wardrobes.

NEW YORK CITY: I CAN BREATH AGAIN

Ever since I moved back to New York City, countless emotions, sensations, feelings and what nots have been felt, thought and gone through my mind.
I named my blog Drifting Nomad for a reason.
Everywhere I've ever been, ever lived, I only stayed for a while.
When you adapt a nomad lifestyle, not only do things come and go more often, but, you're constantly in an unknown phase, an unknown place, because, you never really know what your nest step or your next destination is, and more importantly, how long a while will be this time.

I found my way back home again
But I can only stay for awhile
Now that I'm on my own I can
Finally I can breathe again
So I can only stay for awhile

BOOM! 
Lights, action, movement, colors, night at 3pm, daylight when it's nighttime, Times square, Flat Iron, Columbus Circle from atop, Rain, Mirrors, Tourists, me and of course, my beanie, through Tutes' eye and lens.

When two of my ultimate favorite things are combined, mixed, or simply happen at the same time, nothing but good can result.
