central park and shake shack

vintage linen shirt, Saint James striped shirt, Theory shorts, vintage Coach satchel, Karen Walker sunglasses, Rachel Comey Miner boots

And here's the only other outfit I photographed in New York. It's kind of hard to be creative when you're working out of a tiny suitcase in unexpected weather. Same shorts, same bag... at least the shoes are different? Anyway, wore this to explore Central Park and hit up Shake Shack to see what all the hype was about.


So does Shake Shack compare to In-N-Out? I can only say that it wouldn't be fair to compare the two since they're two different things: Shake Shack was less of a fast food chain to me and more of a gourmet eatery. Plus In-N-Out is just something I grew up with that tastes familiar now matter where I go, you know? But that's just me I guess. Nevertheless it was delicious, so delicious in fact that I ended up going back and spending a total of $20 there that day. (Granted I never wanted to eat again after devouring a double cheeseburger, cheese fries, soda, and milkshake....)

beef bulgogi bun

Here are the snapshots that I promised from Smorgasburg. Like I'd mentioned earlier, we didn't have as much time as anticipated to sample more but we were satisfied with what we got. The view was amazing as well with the clouds clearing over Manhattan so we ate our food right by the waterfront. Someone left a comment on my last post wondering how I could wear shorts in seemingly cold weather but the photos are deceiving: it was actually hot and humid. TOO hot and humid. One of my friends actually asked me how I could go out in a long sleeved shirt and hat... I don't know what I was thinking either.

Looking back I wish we hadn't missed most of the vendors since I have no idea when I'll be back. I was bummed that I didn't get to buy anything from Whimsy & Spice since Jenna has been one of my favorite bloggers for quite some time now (thank for trying to get Mark to look out for me while he was packing up, I wish it had worked out!) For years I've been meaning to order something from their store but keep slipping up... I finally got my chance at Dean & Deluca right before I left and picked up a pack of brown sugar gingerspice cookies for Brent since he's also a fan. Unfortunately I didn't even get to try one since he took them with him to work and finished them all on Bart without saving me one. Rude!

down by the river

vintage chambray shirt, Theory shorts, vintage Pendleton hat, Karen Walker sunglasses, vintage Coach satchel, Rachel Comey boots

Welp, I'm finally posting. New York was super hectic and I only managed to take outfit photos twice because I was... well, having too much fun. I'll post more about the trip in upcoming posts but for now I'll just leave these photos here. Too much to say in one post!


These photos were taken right after we finished eating our food from Smorsgasburg in Williamsburg where we were staying. It took us forever to leave our friend's apartment so we only managed to catch the last 30 minutes of it before it closed and ended up scrambling around trying to figure out what we wanted to eat. I'm saving it for the next post though!

sheer goodness

top and pants c/o Style by Marina, vintage belt, Karen Walker sunglasses, Jil Sander wedges

Whoops. I forgot to blog! I've been so overwhelmed with planning for New York and celebrating friends' birthdays that blogging was the last thing on my mind. I wore both of these Style by Marina pieces together when I got them in the mail... I guess this is as close as I'm going to get to owning a jumpsuit!


It seems so surreal to me right now but in two days I'll be in New York! Suggestions and tips would be appreciated since I actually have no idea what I'll be doing. Seriously, I don't even know what I'm packing. It looks like it's going to be raining? I always end up underpacking because I hate lugging too much stuff around but in this case it may be more efficient to overpack... or maybe I'll just wear the same things over and over again like I usually do. Hah.
