Sundaze



 I love my weekends, I really do.

 I find that living in NYC, many people define themselves by what they for a living. I like to do the opposite, define myself by who I am outside of work.

I am fortunate to have most weekends that I cannot wait for with fun plans with awesome friends. This weekend will be one of those! I love to dress down on the weekends too. You can usually catch me in some running shoes, t-shirts and jeans.

I had brunch with a friend in LES (lower east side) at Essex and Sons. 
My friend had the Shrimp and Grits: AMAZING. I had the Lobster Tostadas- they were yummy, but I was thankful we were going to have dessert. I could've used a side, but whatevs, I was eating lobster on mini corn tostadas. The lobster tasted really fresh and the tostadas were crispy and complemented it well.


I have to mention there are so many great places to take pictures in LES- so much fun graffiti and art around. It's almost the weekend! 
Thanks for reading!

Primaries & Green





Summer is coming to a close, so I am trying to get in as many free and light outfits as I can. September is here which I am very excited about! It is my birthday month, so I will be going on a trip and cannot wait to share some more details about it as it gets closer (think international).

I scored this really cute shirt dress from a store I discovered to be super cute and affordable! Brandy Melville has a few stores in NYC and a ton throughout the country. Not the best quality, but everything in the store is under $50 which is a steal. The material was really soft and lightweight, perfect for Tuesday's hot weather. I decided to be a little casual yet dressy with my red lipstick and favorite studded Converse. 
Happy September! My favorite time of the year.

re/occurring










I was hanging out in the city for the past few days either by myself or with friends, and have had a great time just being in NYC. I am biased because I live on the West side, but here is a short list of my must do's in NYC during the summertime:

1. Boozy Brunch (preferably with a great group of friends)
2. Central park or Prospect Park
3. Rooftop anything
4. Bike around the city (if you're not afraid)
5. Check out something new or do something you haven't done before
6. Boat Basin

Now, for the outfits. I have been wearing this top, shoes, and purse like they are going out of style. I love the simplicity of the top. I also cannot put this bag down because it is on the small size, but fits any essentials I need for a fun night out. The SM sneaks are getting good use too, they really make any outfit a bit more special. 

Outfit #1:
Top: Stussy for General Pants (Australia). Skirt: F21. Plaid shirt: UO. Shoes: Nike Sky Hi Dunks- City Pack Tokyo Edition. Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Craig bag. Necklace: Pull & Bear. 
Sunnies: Karen Walker 

Outfit #2:
Top: Zara. Skirt: 1.State (available @ Nordstrom). Shoes: Steve Madden. Bag: Zara. Sunnies: Ray Ban.

Photos of breakfast @ Clinton Street Baking Company- my suggestion is to have a milkshake (YUM) and the blueberry pancakes!
