This past weekend my husband and I got to celebrate our 4 year wedding anniversary! We took a mini road trip to the city and got to spend two days relaxing in pure bliss! The day we left to head home the weather was supposed to be awful, rainy, cloudy and miserable. However, we got super lucky! It was gorgeous out, HOT, but still gorgeous. So maybe we spent a little extra time perusing the city… ;]
I basically live in flannel in the fall, I legitimately wear it with everything. I was super excited to find this plaid shirt dress at Forever21 last week, it’s a refreshing way to update one of my typical wardrobe staples. This is also a fantastic garment to take from day-to-night. I didn’t wear it this way but if I were to head out to dinner later I’d swap out the sneakers for some thigh-high black boots. I tried on a pair of Stuart Weitzman Highland Boots over the weekend, and they look freaking phenomenal on me, in case anyone was wondering, haha!
The sneakers were key for sight seeing around the city. We wandered aimlessly through the South Street Sea Port, which is one of my favorite sections of New York (right under 5th Ave, of course). We discovered fun little hole-in-the-wall bars and snacked on the most refreshing ice cream ever that pretty much melted upon exiting the store. It was a seriously hot day, muggy and gross! My ice cream ended up everywhere. I found melted sprinkles in my shoes like hours later. I’m so ready for the humidity to go bye-bye!
I hope you had a fantastic Labor Day Weekend! Now it’s back to reality, right? Womp womp!
