I crave adventure. But not in the way that I want to seek thrills.  I’m constantly searching to stimulate my mind through new experiences and exploration which is a huge reason for my relocation to New York City. In my last post I talked about the journey to get to this point, and I am so happy to say I’ve settled in Harlem.  With my time crunch due to a demanding job, I am always squeezing in tiny adventures. Needless to say I hadn’t gone around my new neighborhood very much, only to grab groceries and walk to the subway. So I decided that I wanted to embrace my new home and really see what was in store for me.

The City College of New York is just down the block overlooking St Nicholas Park which has incredible views of Harlem. It has steep hills, winding pathways and grand stairways bordered with wrought iron fences. It felt like a fantasy land with the remnants of the last snow storm we had. The building towering over the hills is Shepard Hall a staple to the college’s image. I was in total awe of the whole atmosphere feeling both regal and surprisingly serene

On another note, I was gifted this dress from Zara for Christmas, it was something I had my eye on for a while. I love how it’s literally an over sized sweatshirt but paired with tights and heeled boots it has become sporty, comfy and sexy all at the same time.

Zara is currently having a huge post holiday sale, I’ve seen some really cool pieces and the deals are even better. This is an ideal time to freshen up your wardrobe.

Dress: Zara | Coat: Michael Kors | Boots: Guess

Love it Madly

Love it Madly is a personal fashion blog I started as a way to channel my creativity while figuring out the journey of young adulthood. I am a twenty something from a small farm in Upstate New York who recently lived New York City for a while chasing a dream. From a young age I have always loved style and clothes and even took pictures of my outfits in middle school, not realizing that blogs would eventually be a thing! What inspires me most are other people, their style and diversity, but also every aspect of nature herself. To love yourself and others in all forms is a significant part of this life, and something I continue to learn every day.
