Just like every typical weekend I’d spend one day walking around this city with an exciting heart. It’s been more than 3 years since I moved to New York, but thankfully this place always has something new hiding and waiting for you to explore! Whether it’s a fancy coffee shop or an invigorating juice bar! This is the outfit that I wore last Saturday. And yes……I wore a pair of  striped wide legs despite of the hot and humid air.
And here I’d love to share a little story of my life..
There was once a short period in my life where I was miserably alienating myself to this place. To even think about it right now I just want to laugh at myself for being so foolish how I used to keep myself feeling deflated all the time. I was living by myself, going to college full-time and doing an internship. Although I know this sounds as fulfilling as it should be, somehow I was feeling very empty and alone..
However, the silver lining came to me and everything changed after I started to persuade myself going out on weekends instead of snuggling in bed all day with my homework and frosted flakes chocolate cereal (Yes, I used to have it as my daily snack.) And what did I usually do outside? Well, I ran along the hudson river, spent time in some of my favorite museums, finished homework in some of the finest cafes and maybe shop around Papyrus. I pretty much walked to everywhere in the city instead of taking the subway so that I could walk past many different neighborhoods. It’s true that at the end of the day I was usually dog-tired and was literally dragging my feet back to home! But I’d still feel thankful that I took every step to discover and be inspired that “life is worth living, doing, feeling and being in it.”
Ever since I seriously hate to stay at home during weekend even in my busiest time in life! Hopefully everyone who’s reading my experience would be encouraged and to take herself out too. Go interact and spend some quality time with your own city, no matter which part of the world you are living in!

 

Yours Truly,

Christine

SLEEPWALKING IN TOWN

 Almost everyone has asked me the same question: Why are you putting on your …pajama? Yes, I won’t deny that this silver blouse looks exactly like what I have been seeing worn by my mother every night back at home 4 years ago, but unfortunately, this is also what I’d like to wear for this season.

Somewhere inside my styling mind along the transformation path from a girl to an independent woman lies a forcing signal that I should get rid of all the girly minidresses.

Hope that everyone who’s reading this blog right now had spent a great time in Valentines! For me this valentines feels really different yet special because I am no longer in a relationship, so I have decided to share a little of my inside world about being an independent individual after ending my 6-year relationship.

Here is a simple sharing of one summer afternoon when I was wandering with my best friend Polly in the city
For a truly busy “Citadin” like everyone of us,
when would you try to stop and admire the simple yet profound pleasure your surrounding scenery  has served you?

One-Day in London by Mush

While I was bending backward trying very hard just to take a selfie with the Big Ben on the bridge, a photographer came forward and asked, ” Do you want me to take a picture for you?” His friendliness and courtesy as a local British quickly led me move away from the awkward state that I usually fall into with strangers, and my one-day tour visiting all the attractions surrounding London Zone 1 had by this way begun 🙂
All items in my closet lately has almost become black and white, it may be a little dull for usual days but I think it’s unexpectedly perfect for travel, especially in such a beautiful city London, it’s because you will never want to overshine the gorgeous backdrops in a picture. So when I knew that I was going to do sightseeing all day I chose to wear this outfit, simple but very chic.
Lastly, special thanks to my tourist guide and photographer again, Thank you Mush! I will see you next time !
當我在橋上60度向後拗腰嘗試要和大笨鐘來一張合照時,一位拿著一台相機的當地攝影師上前笑著問:你需要幫忙嗎?如果平日我是很容易對陌生人顯得非常冷淡的,但他就好像一位導遊一樣,非常友善的給我介紹了大笨鐘,還圍繞著倫敦的Zone One一帶遂一遂一給我介紹每個名勝,最後他也陷入攝影師的習慣指揮著我要站到那一點那一個角度去幫我拍了很多照片 🙂 今天就在這裡跟大家分享一下其中一些照片
我自己最近的衣服差不多全部都變成了黑和白,這對於日常生活穿著可能會有些沉悶,但我就覺得去旅行穿簡樸一點就剛剛好了,因為你不會希望自己的衣服過於鮮艷,在拍照的時候就可以更突出背後那些華麗的建築背景,特別在像英國這樣的城市裡,所以這天選擇了乾淨黑白的配搭
