New York State of Mind

Let’s consider this a #FlashbackFriday post, shall we? I never got around to getting these photos up before the holidays, and now I’m finally playing catch-up!

82_02_hm_newyork_clubmonaco_kay_skirt_longchamp_LePliageI’ve been dying to go back to New York since my first visit last summer, and because I dress to express how I feel, this outfit was born! I can’t wait for my next Big Apple adventure; there were so many things I didn’t get to see, and even more places I didn’t yet eat at — namely Momofuku Milk Bar. (By the way, if you have any NY recommendations, please leave a comment and I will add them to my list!)

82_03_hm_newyork_clubmonaco_kay_skirt_longchamp_LePliage82_04_hm_newyork_clubmonaco_kay_skirt_longchamp_LePliageTo be honest, for the longest time I never understood why Longchamp tote bags were so popular. However, now having owned the small La Pliage style for almost a year, I completely get it. This tote is so well-made, and it quickly became my road trip, fashion conference and shopping trip companion.

82_05_hm_clubmonaco_hat_woolI feel like I’m the only one with this problem, but my head is tiny, and I can never find hats that fit! That is, until I found this one at Club Monaco. If you wear hats and also have a small head, will you please share where you shop? I would love to experiment with other styles, if only I could find more options! Thank you! 🙂


Thanks for reading! Have a great weekend!

    New York is one of my favorite cities of all time! If you haven’t been you should check out: Bao Haus, Calle Ocho for brunch (endless sangria!), Grimaldi’s (either location in Manhattan or Brooklyn are great), Shake Shack, Momofuku Noodle Bar….I could go on 😀
