aboutmeHi! I’m Elena Michelle, a twenty-something Midwestern girl living in New York City.

It didn’t take long for me to fall under Manhattan’s trance. The fashion, the food, the sights and sounds. I became enthralled with the city almost instantly.

I started A New York Love Affair as a diary of sorts, a creative outlet for my courtship with Manhattan. In my little corner of the internet, I detail all the things that have inspired and continue to inspire me during this exciting chapter of my life. Read along as I share with you my love of fashion, penchant for exploring, and appetite for great food.

When I’m not blogging, I enjoy spending time with my fiance Peter, discovering new restaurants, shopping a little bit too much, and cozying up at home with a good book and glass of Pinot Noir.

I’d prefer to try a new restaurant every time I go out. I don’t believe a girl can have too many shoes. And I can never seem to stop looking up at the Manhattan skyline.

Thank you so much for visiting, and come back soon!
