A few weeks ago I took off to NYC with a few coworkers to cover the Lucky FABB conference for work. Between panel discussions and shooting street style, there wasn't much time to explore. But, with a few hours to kill before my departure flight on Saturday, I set off on a photo-walk (which, admittedly, turned into a shopping expedition), before stopping in to a brunch held by Seychelles. I ended up all the way up by the MoMa, so decided to stop in, where a very kind woman gave me a free ticket! While there, I found out two friends from up North were in town, and was able to grab lunch before winding my way back to the hotel. I originally had plans for those few empty hours, but they all fell through, leaving a wide expanse of time open and free for just me. While at times this sort of shift in my schedule can cause me to feel anxiety, on this particular day, I welcomed the opportunity to be free from schedules, my only obligation was to be at JFK in time for my flight.

I ordered these sneakers specifically for this trip, after seeing them on Holly's Instagram. The sneaker trend of this past year is absolutely something I can get behind, and something that my poor, terrible knees certainly appreciate.
