It's absolutely unreal that it's been almost two weeks since we were last in New York. I felt the same on our final day there--where had the first two days gone?

My favorite moments from our last day actually went intentionally undocumented. The 19th century European art in the Met museum was impressive and moving, but I knew any photos couldn't do the pieces justice--they couldn't capture the intricacy, the vibrance, what the paintings evoked. These were the kind of moments you just let happen. If you're curious, however, and ever stop by the Met, my favorites were Pierre-Auguste Cot's Springtime and Paul Signac's Notre Dame de la Garde--I highly recommend taking a gander.

So, I present to you final set of photos from our spring break trip. In the meantime, I'll be hacking away at the keyboard, burying myself in books, furiously scribbling notes, and dreaming of the next break.

  1. Absolutely love your outfit and gorgeous pictures :)

  2. Love your outfit! the turquoise and orange are so great together, it works perfectly with that necklace, the best accessory! :)

    Glad you had such a fun trip in NY! Memories are always the most important thing, although photos are nice to have it's the memories you want to collect the most of!

    I would love to visit the Met museum too, I've already heard a lot about it. Besides, I'm a huge fan of art galleries and museums, there is nothing more exiting for me, than to take such a cultural trip through history. It was quite interesting to read your post and your serious reflection about it.

    I also can't but mention how I enjoyed those photographs, which are done wonderfully well. You've got an artist's eye, indeed.

    Have a nice time, Lily!

  4. Springtime looks like something that's been taken from a beautiful fairytale. it's so mystic! and what a great opportunity to be able to visit the Met. your trip sounds like a superb time overall. and your outfits totally reflect that. they're colourful, happy, unique. I love those New York posts you've been shareing!
    by the way, I also love what you've done with those colours here in your outfit. mint and orange/red make a wonderful duo, so effective! and of course I love those brown leather accessories which you probably already knew. haha but I still have to read about your day 1 that's patiently sitting in my Bloglovin feed!

  5. The dress and shoes are very nice here. Having New York City as the backdrop offers a nice touch for your outfit. Very cool stuff here! Continued best wishes to you in your studies.
