What I wore in New York

A very dear friend of mine always jokes that she never makes it into my IG stories whenever I visit New York, and I always respond that it's because I'm so present and having so much fun with her that I don't even think to pull out my phone and take pictures. The same thing goes for this post—I had every intention of shooting a different outfit every day of our five-day trip last week, but...we were having too much fun and kind of forgot to. The good news is that we did manage to capture two of them (I'll re-create the others sooner or later), and coincidentally enough, they both kind of reflect the areas of the city in which I wore them. Here are some of the things wore last week in NYC.

Uptown girl

We stayed on the Lower East Side but spent most of our first day uptown at the Met (highly recommend the Karl Lagerfeld exhibit, but be prepared to wait to get in), followed by drinks at one of my favorite bars in the world, Bemelmans Bar at the Carlyle. The weather was absolutely perfect—warm and sunny but not humid—so I broke out my new skirt, paired with some old favorites. The skirt is basically one big piece of airy, barely-there silk, and while it wasn't particularly windy, I spent much of the day trying to prevent a Marilyn Monroe flashing situation. Which I guess is very fitting for NYC!

OUTFIT DETAILS: H&M linen shirt | Toteme skirt | The Row park tote | JW Anderson sandals 

Downtown girl

I admittedly haven't spent much time in Brooklyn since I left 10 years ago, but Sean had a photography class in Dumbo on Saturday morning, so while he brushed up on his skills, I had fun exploring my old stomping grounds (which have definitely changed!). The weather was a bit chillier than I had expected; I wasn't planning to wear this blazer with this dress, and in retrospect, I wish I would have brought my black blazer versus this one, but other than that, the outfit kind of works in a throwback Banana Republic kind of way.
