Day at The Met



We had a pretty chilly and gloomy Saturday this weekend, so my friends and I finally made our way over to the Met! The Heavenly Bodies exhibit was at the top of our list and the exhibit really blew me away. The Medieval Art exhibit was the perfect setting for the garments and dresses inspired by the Catholic Church and it was truly an experience. I highly recommend checking it out if you have the chance! We also walked through the Egypt, Versailles, and American Art exhibits and feel like there was still so much to see. 

I kind of dressed up for no reason (I feel like you can do that in New York, right?) and wore this fun blazer for the day. I picked it up at the Zara sale, so it's a little wintery but I think it's still definitely a neutral piece and worked during the summer, too. I paired it with a really casual look (white tee, denim skirt & tennis shoes) and it dressed it up so much. It looks so simple yet put together and I love how much the blazer changed the look of the outfit. 

Also, I don't think I can talk about how much I love this backpack enough. Since rain was in the forecast, I used this backpack because it's water resistant and I was able to fit my umbrella as well as my DSLR camera with room to spare. It was also so easy to walk around the museum with a backpack rather than a big purse. Seriously one of my favorite purchases this year.

We ended the day with dinner at Aunt Jake's in Greenwich Village for pasta. I had seen Aunt Jake's all over Instagram, and it was a beautiful restaurant and the pasta was so. good. It was also right across from McNally Jackson's Goods For the Study, which is a stationary store that was on my list of places to check out! I could've bought the whole store, so it took a lot of self control to make it out of there without going crazy. I stocked up on some fun birthday cards and thank you notes and will have to stop in again to look at all the agendas and notebooks they carry.

It was such a fun weekend visiting the Met and attending a NYC Football Club game at Yankee Stadium (and getting some much needed rest). I'm so glad I had the chance to finally take some photos for the blog. I have quite a few fun outfits I want to share with y'all but between interning and taking a class this summer I'm a little short on time to get blog posts up. Hoping I can make some time in the coming weeks to publish some new posts, is there anything specific y'all want to see?

Summer Uniform



Recently, my summer uniform has been a plain t-shirt and a comfy pair of shorts. When I was in Savannah last week, I dressed this look up for the day by swapping my go-to pull on shorts from J. Crew Factory for this pair of fun navy eyelet shorts. The shorts have a 5.5" inseam, so they're on the longer side, but are high waisted so I think they are still really flattering and wearable (I know bermuda shorts are trying to come back into style, but they're not my favorite). It looks like these exact shorts just sold out so I would keep checking back, but in the meantime, I found a pair of nearly identical shorts from Target that are under $25! 
Since the shorts have the eyelet detail, I paired them with a simple white tee and the most comfortable sandals. I got these from the Steve Madden outlet and I have been wearing them nonstop, so I went to buy a pair of the same style at Off Broadway Shoes, but the version of these shoes sold everywhere else has a different insole and are not nearly as comfortable (I wouldn't recommend those). I searched all over the internet and found the exact same ones I have available on Amazon. I'm not sure how many they have in stock so I would order them ASAP! They're probably the most comfortable and easy shoes to slip on and I know I'll be wearing them nonstop this summer.  
I just love how put together this outfit looks while still being comfortable for a day of sightseeing. This would be a great outfit if you're traveling this summer or just headed to the mall and want to look a little dressed up.
