For Spring Break I’m in the big city. Being a small town girl, being in the city is my favorite thing ever! People who live in the city don’t appreciate it like I do, as a wonderful, magical place full of great shops and homeless people. I love the city. The reasons are abundant.
1. The Shops. Living in small towns, the only good shopping is at least an hour away. Here in the city, I walk two blocks and there’s Anthropologie, West Elm, and Sur la Table. City people take it for advantage, but it’s honestly the best shopping experience I can dream of.
2. The Food. In a small town, you have your burger joint, bad Chinese, and maybe a few Mexican restaurants. In the city I can have just about anything my brain can come up with. So far on my trip? I had sushi for dinner last night, croissants and fresh fruit for breakfast, fish burrito for lunch, and Thai for dinner. The city makes all your food needs reachable.
3. The People. People in the city are much more diverse than the personalities of small town folk. You see people actually dressing up in heels for work. Blows your mind, right? The diversity of the people is pretty amazing. Walking down the street you see people wearing jeans, people wearing $200 skirts, even people wearing saris. It’s such a great group of people.
4. The Fashion. Almost everyone dresses the same in small towns. In the city, you don’t see the same outfit ever. People have a real fashion sense that is all their own. It’s the best place for fashion inspiration!
I’m really enjoying my time in the city. I don’t want to leave in a few days, so I’m making the absolute best of my time here. Wish me luck on my city adventure!
