While walking on the hectic streets of NYC, I instantly noticed how dynamic the life of the New Yorkers is – people walk so fast that they are almost running and many of them even have their lunch on the go. I thought Londoners are always in a rush but this trip proved me wrong.
Like every person, it has been my dream to visit ‘the city that never sleeps’ and I was so thrilled to be actually there. I could feel the vibrant atmosphere of the city in many aspects – art places, varieties of food, modern architecture and crowds of people nearly everywhere you go. It is very different from Continental Europe in a lot of ways and all of this, combined with the feeling of the unknown areas, triggered a few inspiring thoughts in me. I went on quiet walks around the city and tried to experience what it is like to live there by paying attention to the small details of the people’s habits during a normal work day, their behaviour and of course, how many of them were smiling and laughing. From what I saw, I can say that I got a feeling that many of them looked stressed and exhausted by the busy and highly demanding life in the city. Of course I might be wrong, but this is one of the things I feel and see when I close my eyes and think of my visit in New York.
On the very last day of our trip, we had breakfast in a French bakery at the center of the business district of Manhattan. It was a very nice place, without a long queue, which is very uncommon for NYC. On that day, I was wearing pants from House of Sunny combined with heels from H&M, black top & leather jacket from Asos. For accessories, I picked the Torino bag from the latest collection of Mezzanotte. I am preparing another article for New York Fashion Week, so stay tuned! xx
