Yes, I’m really throwing it back to Jay-Z and Alicia Key’s song Empire State of Mind. Out of serious coincidence I heard a cover of this song as I was headed to the airport for NYFW, but it was an acoustic version and really had me dissecting the lyrics. I don’t want to get too deep here because this blog is to share my personal style with you and hopefully motivate you to take fashion risks…but it wasn’t until just recently that I started doing what I truly have a passion for and that’s styling, creating, working in the fashion industry, and inspiring others. I have to agree that Jay-Z & Alicia Keys….New York is a place where dreams are made and you leave feeling inspired, like theres nothing you can’t do.
A little challenge for you…ask yourself what you’re truly passionate about in life. If you aren’t already incorporating this into your daily routine, I encourage you to find a way and make that happen. Life is too short to be living other people’s dreams. It’s time to start creating your own! xx
