Photographin’ The City

Wearing ASOS dress, Kate Spade necklace, DVF pumps, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran Tote on Park Avenue in New York City

I kind-of miss when my blog read more like a diary. So in an effort to work on that and venture out, actually showing New York life on the blog, I created a bucket list of tourist-y things that I want to do. The idea is I will take the required outfit of the day photos—finally acknowledging the fashion blogger part of me—hopefully have a cool experience, reporting back with a story.

Hold me to it.

And to hold myself accountable, I’m going to tell you the NYC attraction checklist that I have. If I do not report back with outfit photos and a corresponding story for each of these places by August 13, 2015 (giving myself a year to properly plan these excursions), cuss me out.

And because I like to start my To Do lists with things I’ve already done—it makes me feel like I’m off to a good start if I can cross something out early on—a few of these you’ve already seen.

Is there anything else that I forgot? This isn’t to say that I haven’t been to all of these places, or even seen them, most of them I have, just that I want to experience them at my leisure. With photos to mark the occasion—making my blog a scrapbook of sorts again.

Essentially, I’m exploring New York City and photographing it. One #OOTD at a time–starting with Park Avenue.
