So after the rainy evening yesterday I was prepped and ready to go for fall weather today! To my surprise, it ended up being a beautiful day though! Warm, not too humid, and not a rain cloud in sight! I could get used to weather like this! Such a beautiful walk to the subway when it’s sunny out. The only thing that could have made it any better would have been walking to the perfect sunny weather song. Unfortunately, I left my ipod charger cord in Washington though so I have been ipodless. After work today I had to make an emergency shoe shopping trip. And yes it really was an emergency! I wore a pair of flats today to work that weren’t totally broken in yet thinking it would be a good way to get them worn. Wrong! Instead, my feet were blistered and bleeding by the time I made it to the office. Who knew flats of all things could be so brutal! Moral of the story, the after work trip really was an emergency and necessary to making sure I made it home with my feet still intact. So I ended up buying 2 new pairs of flats and wedge heels that are comfy and will be perfect for my long work pants.  After a little shoe shopping I also HAD to stop by H&M on the way home to pick up a couple items for business-wear. And yes, this trip was a must as well ;-) While I’m waiting for my mom to ship me the other half of my wardrobe I needed to pick up a couple extra items! Sneak peak of my new skirt and shirt from the dressing room above! I’ve never bought anything from H&M before, but they were reasonably priced and it felt like a more grown-up version of Forever 21. I stopped myself at 3 items, but as soon as I have a little more spending money I’m sure I’ll be back a couple of times! I can definitely see how living here could be dangerous. I definitely think it is possible to live here on a budget, but I can see how easy it is to spend money. Not only is everything on average a little more expensive, but there are so many places to spend your money! Especially when just on your walk home from the subway you pass an H&M, multiple shoe stores, Best Buy, Victoria’s Secret, grocery stores, and an unnumbered amount of delicious looking restaurants and delis! Aye yi yi! Trying my best to withhold!
