At the start of the New Year, I made a promise to myself to start loving the city I live in. I have lived in New York my whole life and have had moments of wanting to get as far away as I could but also moments of not wanting to ever leave.
I’ve spent time traveling across the country, started my college career down south, and have been to different parts of the state, but my heart has always called me back home.
I moved up to the Albany area about a year ago and my life changed in so many ways. I met my boyfriend about a week after moving here, lived in different apartments, changed jobs, and met new friends. I couldn’t be happier with the decision I made to start my own life here.
My journey to start loving and experiencing my city more started with State Street. At the heart of the city, this street is home to different shops, restaurants, hotels and ballrooms. As you reach the top, there’s an amazing view of the Capitol Building.
I challenge you, if you have ever felt this way, to find things that you love about your city. Branch out and try a new restaurant, shop in a new store and grab a drink at the trendiest bar. You never know what you’ll find or fall in love with 🙂
Hey girl! So glad you’re here for my first post on Likely Lex. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a 20 something year old, fashion and lifestyle blogger from Upstate New York. I work as a graphic designer and live with my boyfriend in our small downtown apartment.
I am so excited to start sharing my life and passions with you! I have always been interested in fashion, choosing my outfits at age 3, even if that meant going to pre-school in a tutu. My parents and sister have been my biggest supporters and they are a big part of why I’m starting to live out my dream.
For my first post, I wanted to share a classic look and something that’s very Likely Lex 😉 I’m a true lover of a basic tee and jeans. It’s comfy and casual but is a staple outfit every closet needs. I am also currently obsessed with these Golden Goose dupes. If you know me, which you will get to :), I am a HUGE fan of a good steal. I love a trendy piece for a great price.
Through this blog, I hope to help all women love where they are and feel comfortable in their own skin. I will always be open and honest with you guys and hope to meet every one of my readers through meet and greets or through online conversation. Make sure to check me out on Instagram at @LikelyLex! Have a great day 🙂
