On A Rainy New York Day
Hi my loves!
How was your Valentine’s Day? Or maybe Galentine’s Day? (And I know I have a few men reading also, so Palentine’s Day for you!) Mine was so lovely. Edward surprised me with flowers and breakfast this morning before he offered to drive me to work (who knew that would only take half the amount of time the subway takes? If I only had a driver every day, haha. A girl can dream). Right before my lunch break he called and said he was outside my office, and so we went on a lunch date downtown. Such a lovely day full of surprises. Edward works odd hours this week, so to give him a treat too (when he comes home at midnight), I made him a little ‘after work’-package with a beer, chips, salsa & guac, some Hershey’s Kisses, and of course a cute card.
It’s so fun to experience these holidays in another country, and see how they celebrate. On my way home from work I saw so many girls with flowers, teddy bears, even heart shaped balloons. And guys with flowers and chocolate. It’s maybe a bit much, but I really just embraced all the love in the air.
On another (Valentine’s) note, I wanted to show you guys my outfit from the other day. It turned out to be a very rainy day in New York, but ever since moving here I’ve so dearly missed the rainy days that we have en Denmark. I didn’t think I would ever miss grey, rainy days, but with an umbrella and coffee in hand, I just think they are so cozy. I wore a new casual favorite of mine, this striped cotton shirt. It’s oh so soft, and stripes just make every outfit effortless chic. It would be really cute to dress up for work with dress pants and my Gucci loafers.
Have a lovely Thursday you guys. It’s almost the weekend!
