I started going through our New York trip photos, and whoa, L took a ton of pictures. I got overwhelmed after about ten seconds, and realized that I may never adequately share them with you, because I just don’t have the time.

But, I can do an outfit post, and write about bits and pieces of the trip. New York was amazing; which mostly goes without saying. I am constantly fascinated by the people, the fast pace, and the beauty of such a big city compressed into such a small area of land. There is always something to see.

In terms of this outfit, I bought the striped maxi on a whim from Gap. After looking at pictures of me in the dress, I’m not particularly impressed with the fit. It makes me a bit irritated because, for some reason, I bought it full price. I almost always buy Gap stuff on sale.

I think this was the point in the trip where the whirlwind travel was catching up to me. I recall being a grumpy b*tch at certain points, and L had to put up with my shenanigans. How he did it? We may never know.

My “just take the freakin’ picture” smile.

Here is where I marched off on a mad quest to find the Guggenheim. L was leisurely photographing the surrounding area, and I took off without him. Oh, how traveling has changed since those first tender years together when we were taking picture of ourselves kissing and holding hands everywhere. I laugh.

    lol Trips do change. My Sailor LOVES to stand around and photograph everything! It's okay for a while, but eventually I'm "Let's go DO something" and I get irritated. Funny how that works! I have one picture framed in our bedroom of us kissing while on a trip. Every time I see it, I laugh because I remember how annoyed I was with him.

    You look great – I dig the dress and I bet it's uber comfy!!

    PQ and I have been together since we were basically children so my perspective on relationships and their cycles is a bit skewed. That said I hear ya – PQ loves to meander around while I NEED TO GET OUT THERE AND GET MY MONEYS WORTH! Ugh. I annoy myself. 🙂

    Happy Friday!! ♥

    Oooh I really do like the bold black and white stripes on that maxi! I've been wanting one like that; I've been obsessed with stripes as of late…
