city meets the shore is a blog about my personal style which couldn't be described any better than in those 4 words. I grew up on the beach and go to the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC (RIP to the old me, I'm actually post-grad but haven't come to terms with it yet) and the two extremes heavily influence my personal style. I'm like one big urban/edgy/boho/beachy-messy-hair-beer-drinking-mess. I would have called the blog that but, ya know, too many words. I'm going to use this platform to share my favorite outfits and favorite spots on the shore and in the city. Thanks for visiting!

My name is Alyssa and I'm 23 years old. I'm FIT alumni (sad and old). My favorite things include: beer, dogs, pizza, my boo, wearing all black, shoes (duh), instagram, new restaurants, rolling around in the sand, not sweating, green juice, being tan, layered necklaces, free food, waking up early, coffee, the word 'aesthetic', sarcasm, dirty humor, Dr. Phil, and that's all I can think of for now.
