I've been reflecting a lot lately about what this blog was intended to be. After lots of encouragement from my friends, I started this blog to showcase my personal style. Unfortunately, it simply never matched in reality what my vision was for it to begin with: to be a fun, casual place to show the ways in which I like to dress. I've always felt a great deal of pressure to have super high quality photographs and interesting stories to accompany them, but I think it's time for me to step away from that expectation and archetype and move forward in a new direction.
instagram.com/aneyeforfinery is the result of my thoughts about this. The platform is much more spontaneous and open to the ways in which I want to share my style with the world. I've moved some past entries from the blog to the insta-account and intend on updating it regularly with my day to day outfits and any other stylish things that I'd like to share. I encourage you to check it out if you're interested!

|the view from Millennium Bridge.|
That night, I met up with an old graduate school friend, Joanna, for a very, very good cocktail in a very, very hip bar. It was wonderful to catch up with her and hear about her studies.
It perhaps goes without saying that two days in London is simply not enough, but that is all I had. It would be like attempting all there is to do in New York City in that span of time, and so it felt silly to try to do all the touristy things. This was the only city on my trip that I elected to take a bus tour, and I was happy for that choice. I got to see many of the "must-see" places here in about three hours. The bus zig-zagged through the city, and I was able to get off at a few spots to take semi-decent photos.
|Big Ben. I hate to say this, but it isn't so big.|
|Eye of London. And no, I didn't ride this. Next time, next time.|

Already ready for my next journey...
