Lately I’ve been all about the juxtaposition of a girly sundress paired with edgier accents. Last week I posted this outfit – a silky striped shift paired with a black leather jacket – and this week I decided to show how you can quickly change the appearance of very girly, white sundress by once again, simply adding black leather accessories. It’s an easy way to take a feminine day-time dress to a full on evening-appropriate outfit. xo
I apologize for the lack of photos in today’s post. I had people in town on Saturday and was so busy running around showing them the city that I forgot to bring my camera with me and capture everything we did. But on Sunday, I actually remembered to pop it in my bag before heading to Pier 5 in Brooklyn to check out Smorgasburg. This particular one is located right on the waterfront with a spectacular view of the city. It was pretty hot out yesterday, so we grabbed a couple whole coconuts to stay hydrated, some schnitzel sandwiches from Schnitz (we both opted for the Bamburg) and parked ourselves in a little shady spot right off the pier.
Once again, it was a great weekend! I wished I could have spent Sunday with my Dad for Father’s Day, but I look forward to August when I get to see my family again. So, in the meantime, I just want to say a huge thank you to my Dad, for being the best there is – I am one lucky girl. :)
Hope you all had a great weekend and here’s to a fantastic week!
P.S. Check out a few other “Over the Weekend” posts here, here and here!
I’m heading to Spain in early August and plan on living in silky, breezy shifts like this one, which I scooped up on sale from Joie last weekend. With the overcast weather we have been experiencing, I decided to throw on a leather jacket along with coordinating black accessories to add a bit of edge to this summery number. But in a few months, when it’s sweltering out, I’ll lose the jacket, and swap out my oversized bag for a simple cross-body and my heels for espadrilles. Easy peasy! xo
Happy Monday guys! I hope you all had a great weekend. The weather was fantastic so I spent most of it outside with friends. I had people in town visiting from Seattle over the past few days, so I showed them all around the city, took them to my favorite places and generally just had a great time exploring.
Went to a interesting photography exhibit inside Milk Studios.
Walked the High Line and stopped at Terroir for drinks and food.
The views from the High Line never get old.
We rounded out the weekend by having a great brunch at The Dutch on Sunday. I went with eggs, but if you ever go, you have to try the fried chicken. It’s out of this world!
After my friends left in the afternoon, Casey and I headed to Brooklyn to celebrate a friend’s Birthday at Fornino on the water. I love Brooklyn Heights and hope to spend more time out there this summer. The views of the city are incredible!
Just a fun little Friday remix for you! I have quite a little collection of beaded skirts and love mixing them up by not only wearing them at night, but during the day too. With the right styling, you won’t feel like you are super dressy, which is key. For this remix, I kept the bones of each outfit very similar, i.e. black, shoes, same sunglasses, similar jewelry etc, as well as the color palette, which makes creating outfits much easier, especially if you are new to remixing.
These alligators blended in so well with the water. They would sneak/swim right up to the boat out of nowhere!
The guide fed them marshmallows, which they loved. ( The guide assured us that feeding them this treat is not actually bad for them – phew!)
I couldn’t stop taking pictures of the trees and Spanish moss that seemed to be everywhere. I didn’t grow up with vegetation like that so it was fascinating to me.
I spy a little turtle!
Overall it was a really great trip. It’s fair to say that I spend a lot of time down in New Orleans, but this time I was lucky enough to see Louisiana in a different light than before. I especially loved capturing different shots on the plantation and during the swamp tour since I had never really ventured outside the city limits, so I saw things with fresh eyes for sure. I also had such a fun time playing around with the different cameras and lenses, chatting with the Olympus team and meeting everyone that was a part of our group. Thanks for having me Olympus, I had a blast! xo
This past Saturday, Casey and I spent the day at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic out on Liberty State Park. It was a beautiful day (except for the 20 minutes of rain that occurred) for sitting in the sun and sipping champagne with friends.
