Soho Afternoon

Basically all my sister and I have done so far is shop until we drop. I knew that she’d want to go shopping in the city, so I’ve been holding off on shopping for the past few weeks so that we could go together.

October is quickly approaching and I’m working on finalizing my capsule wardrobe before then. There were a few things on my list that I wanted to check out in the store, but when I tried them on, they weren’t like I expected. The first day of shopping was a little bit frustrating, but we had much better luck on the second day. I haven’t checked off everything on my list yet, but I think I’ve made some pretty good progress.

As we were walking home on Wednesday, we saw the prettiest cotton candy sunset. Thanks NYC for reminding me how lovely you can be.
