NYC. Woke up to some pretty sweet spring weather this morning and decided to throw on my fringe boots and prance around in the sun for a while. Can’t believe I’m leaving New York next week even though it’s for a good reason (my birthday!!), but I still have seven precious days left in the big city and I fully intend to make the most of them!
