The quintessential New York hustle is very evident in the streets of Manhattan. The constant buzz of the vehicles around and the endless streams of people just make you notice that you are indeed in the city that never sleeps. It was a very busy and rushed day for me as I hopped from different places to photograph every few hours. I am still quite disappointed though that I was not able to visit the Flat Iron due to lack of time. Manhattan made the city girl in me gushed like crazy. It has that vibrant and distinct ambiance that can only be attributed to being NYC's hustle centre. The original skyscrapers like the Empire State Building and the Chrysler together with the affluent shops are right in the middle of the city.
For this day, I opted to wear a dress that I bought at Chicago a few years ago and then just put a cozy turtleneck sweater over it. I wanted to be comfortable enough since I would be doing a lot of walking (walking made me miss California haha!) and photographing. New York weather can be very erratic so I did not leave anything to chance and wore tights with the thigh high boots.
WHAT I WORE:
turtleneck off white jumper from WALMART (yup it is a clearance sale haul)
black dress used as a skirt from URBAN OUTFITTERS (CHICAGO)
thigh high boots from BOOTSIES
tights from H&M
eyewear from COTTON ON
charcoal gray tote bag from STEVE MADDEN
Below are some shots of me taken by my kiddo or Uncle as well as other shots I took using a Sony Mirrorless Camera and a Fisheye lens (my uncle's camera and which made me consider buying one just because it is very handy and light.)
