City legs

There is something about wandering around in the city that can feel so amazing. The hustle and bustle of strangers on their way, to and fro, makes for incredible people browsing while killing time. The city life frightens some people, I don’t mind it once in a while (though I’m glad to live in a much quieter neighborhood). Similarly, the other day I got lost driving through a new neighborhood when I missed my exit off the highway. I found new streets, new houses, a new perspective of this city.

The overall minty-ness green in this outfit gets lost in the shadows, but another accomplished no-hints-of-black outfit that I’m proud of.

The sun quickly set this evening in the city amidst the skyscrapers and the chill quickly set in – San Francisco, you sure are pretty some times in your own special way.

    I love all these shots – they’re really beautiful and so evocative of the urban landscape. Seriously, they’re all very striking.

    I am definitely a small town girl at heart, but I love city life in small doses and don’t like being too far away from a major city ever. This is probably why I live in Oakland, where I can hop on a train and visit SF anytime I need to satiate my urban cravings.

    I live in such an unpopulated area, and have such little experience to base anything off of, I’m not really sure whether I’d like City Life or not. It is definitely fun to visit though… It is interesting to me how much more noticeable the hair length change is in these. Looks nice though!

      I grew up in a small city (less than 20,000 when I was there, but I’m not sure how that compares to where you are) and I hated it. I always knew I wanted to live somewhere bigger!

    Such great photos!! I love how you stand out against the city background.  City life definitely is not for everyone.  I’m lucky enough to live in a small city but live in a quiet area.  I’ve also had the chance to live in Boston where it is definitely hustle and bustle every day.  I think I like where I am…quiet enough but also a train ride/drive away from Boston or New York.

      I like living in the city but now in downtown areas where it’s so crowded and noisy, I don’t think I could ever live in NYC!
