Hope you enjoyed seeing a glimpse of my trip to the Big Apple.  Hope you’ll get a chance to visit these destinations in the city sometime soon! Just remember the city is sooooooooo hot in August, so don’t forget to pack light.  Check out my shop my looks page to see what I wore on the extremely hazy, hot, and humid days.
