Skyscrapers and everything!

07 May

{ personal: }

Thank you Stevie Wonder for the best introduction of New York City. I’ve been missing in action, I know, though technically I’ve been here all along. I’ve been a very busy lady. I can at least account for the last two weeks, the latter which was spent in Manhattan. I will fondly look back on this particular week as the time I fell in love with yellow.

I’m not referring to your soft baby chick variety, either. I’m talking about bright, honest-to-goodness yellow. Yellow! Think of daffodils and Chrysanthemums. Think of sunshine. It started with an innocent sighting in the American Apparel window on Houston in the Lower East Side. It was intensified by a wonderfully radiant woman’s hair who so kindly let me take her picture. And the deal was sealed with a proper multi-colored mani procured on a whim as I walked by my friend’s favorite nail salon.

Yellow pleated skirt, blue t-shirt, coral blazer, tom's floral slip-ons

It took two trips but I found the right size skirt. I’ve never been one for pleats but no one ever told me I could have yellow pleats. This shade of yellow makes me happy. I’m wearing springtime and I like it.

Neon yellow hair

Katherine, whose jovial and charismatic disposition distracted me from confirming the spelling of her name, is a jewelry designer who happened to be equally interested in the coral tones of my outfit. Naturally, we exchanged pictures. After this week, I’m of the mindset that if you can walk up to a stranger on the street in New York and ask to take their picture, you are probably capable of anything. You can’t really think about it too much, just do it.

The mani, complete with green accent nail and flower.

Street art, NYC

Lastly, more beautiful street art. I’m a big fan. They’re often temporary, yet take a fair amount of devotion, skill and craft, providing an element of surprise when walking down the street.

Hope you enjoyed a glimpse into my latest trip, I promise to share more soon. I’ve really missed writing and being active here.

    Looks like it was a good trip. And I like the yellow pleats on you. Although I’ve yet to walk up to a stranger and ask to take their photo, I have become better at giving compliments to strangers when there is something about them I admire.

    i think if one chooses to dye their hair neon yellow-green, one is kinda asking to be approached, and photographed. or maybe she was just a big fan of mountain dew.

    Yellow and blue are my favorite colors! Especially yellow.. I do have yellow Havaianas, yellow hand bag and now I do use yellow nail polish on my toe nails!

    The structure could be modeled after a real skyscraper or an imagined one. If you desire to create a LEGO skyscraper, there are several different paths you can take to the structure’s completion..
