Last week my husband and I headed out to the East Coast for his college graduation at Liberty University in Virginia, and afterwards we went on a little road trip to up the coast to New York. We both had been to NYC before, but this was our first time together, and we had a lot of fun sight seeing the landmarks.
We were in NYC for just 2 and half days and we got there just as the a 90° heat wave come over the city. It was the perfect opportunity to debut my new summer dresses and experience New York in a new light, since I’ve only been there in the winter before. For this day I chose this lovely dress from Shein, which was perfect for the occasion, since the dress is so light and flowy. I love the romantic ruffles and the seamless sleeves. I really like to wear sleeves on hot days like that, because they protect your shoulders from getting sunburned. I paired my dress with the cutest loafers from AmiClubwear. I love the blush tone, and I’m loving to style these loafers with different outfits. Blush shoes are quickly becoming the new nude for me.
We spent our second day in the city in lower Manhattan, the oldest part of town. Since we were only in the city for a few days we tried to maximized our time and only check out what was important to us. But there is so much to see in that city, and you could easily spend a day or two walking around Chinatown, Little Italy, and the cobblestone streets of the Financial District.
Finally at the end of the day we took the subway back to the Grand Central station so I could get my Serena van der Woodsen (Gossip Girl) getting back into town photos. Unfortunately, walking around NYC is not always as glamorous as we wish it could be, and I was so tired at that point that Blair would’ve been embarrassed to be seen with me. But we had fun and it was so worth it.
Now it’s your time to tell me. Have you been to New York before? What is your favorite thing about the city, or what do you wish to see?
See you next time!
