garbage disposal day

so yeah, this picture was taken right outside of a sort of mediterranean restaurant where i started off my day with hummus/macaron. then continued on to eat some cooking in honor of matt's grandma sandy, including but not limited to pasta, lasagna, noodles, etc etc. then onto dinner at my parents house.
black bean salad, check. yellow rice, check. chicken kabob, check. chocolate chip cheese squares, check.
lets just say i went to bed a stuffed little piggy.

these shorts were revamped/destroyed by sara. they were in my store, but i bought them from her directly instead. haha, you can never have em now! you can buy the shirt though, right here!

happy memorial day!

a french afternoon

so it just so happens there is an AMAZING french bakery a few blocks from me. yesterday matt, guillaume and i walked there. of course the french people who work there immediately knew guillaume was french, and began to speak to him like an old friend!

i sipped me some iced coffee, nom nomed some macarons and raspberry pastries and smiled til my cheeks hurt. the dress was a gift from local jewelry designer alexandra hunt who will be hosting a giveaway on my blog in the next few weeks! it is so flowy and gorgeous, it makes me feel like royalty. have a HAPPY friday kiddies!

i'll be seeing you

for some reason, when i am amongst the hustle and bustle of new york city my world just slows down. it is as if my brain and my inner chaos just reaches this calm and soothing quiet, and i can sit with my thoughts and really think deeply about my life. so basically, i am somewhat sad to be back and cannot wait to visit again at a later date.

while in ny i first spent a day with my aunt elisa who is in the last picture. she is one of the best people around, fyi. then i headed into the city and slept at my friend kelseas house for the rest of the time(the cutie in the floral skirt).

on sunday i met up with gaby of fashionable collections and we went thrifting in bushwick. it seriously feels like i have known this girl my whole life, she is just the sweetest! i am so glad that blogging brought us together! i also got to see my nyc bff tara and my younger brother matt who is in the picture with me above! it was the perfect weekend getaway, and i got to catch up with so many people who i love and miss, and who i know will just always be in my life!

shorts: thrifted
blouse: forever 21
argyle vest: vintage and for sale here
tights: h & m
shoes: thrifted
purse: vintage

p.s. some new items from the trip will soon be added to my store!
