Exploring old New York/keepin it casual

I have lived in New York City for 22 years of my life and it has been a crazy ride. 
I got to play in the greatest city in the world as a child. I saw Picasso, Monet and Pollock while spending hot summers in the air conditioned museums. I got to play at the "top of the world" on the Empire State Building and the World Trade Center as a kid and loved every minute of it. As a teenager, New York pushed me to grow up a little faster than most but I wouldn't trade my experience of growing up here for anything in the world.

Today B and I went to the New York Public Library in Bryant Park, a place I've never been to in these 22 years of being a New Yorker. I had been wanting to go for the longest time because I heard wonderful things about it. It seemed like the perfect place to take my love, since he's a lover of all books, a writer  and has been wanting a New York library card for the longest time. 
If you haven't been, go. The architecture is so beautiful, especially the ceilings. Here is to hoping that it doesn't become "a glorified internet cafe" (thanks for showing me this Carter!)

We also decided to mix this week's style post with this because we've both been stressed with work and  meetings  but next week we'll be back on schedule to bring you a proper post!
