Ever since I arrived back in New York last Monday, the rest of the week and weekend was jammed pack with fun activities and plans, including my Birthday celebration! It all began on Tuesday night, after Casey and I attended the New York premiere of the movie he worked on called I Origins, which was incredible and I highly recommend you all see it. (In theaters July 18th!!!) Afterward we headed to a nearby bar to ring in my Birthday at midnight with friends over a glass of wine and a bodega Twinkie with a candle on top.
Wednesday was my actual Birthday, so I took the day to relax, get a mani/pedi and read by the pool. Later that night, I wore this dress to dinner at Cafe Mezcal with a bunch of my close friends. We grabbed drinks at Nurse Bettie afterward where somehow within five minutes of walking in, I was called up on stage along with two other people for a mini Birthday dance competition, which hilariously I won. Needless to say it was a blast.
Wore this Parker dress on Wednesday.
Thursday night was a surprise that Casey planned for me, which turned out to be a very special, old school New York evening, complete with dinner at The Lamb’s Club and a show, Avenue Q, a hilarious Broadway comedy/musical. (My jumpsuit is by Parker.)
Also, seriously obsessed with this necklace by Bauble Bar x Stripes and Sequins.
Saturday was my Mom’s Birthday, which sadly I wasn’t home to celebrate with her and my Dad. Instead it was spent low key, wandering around the East Village. We grabbed lunch at Cafe Mogador then ice cream at Van Leeuwen. Then later on dinner at The Mermaid Inn and caught a movie, 22 Jump Street, which was super funny – I highly recommend it.
Happy Pride Day!
To wrap up an amazing week and weekend, on Sunday we saw back to back UCB shows to conclude the annual Del Close Marathon, which you can read about here. Some pretty heavy hitters performed, including Amy Poehler and the girls from Broad City. We were thrilled. All in all, it was such a great past seven days and I feel so incredibly grateful to have such an amazing boyfriend, friends and family. And to you, my dear readers, thank you for the Birthday wishes and following along all these years. It means the world to me. Love to you! xo
