Just a brief post while I try to collect myself. I have been busy with work and play this week and I am feeling a little under the weather after so much fun (or maybe it is this heat?!)!
Besides the day job, I managed to sneak to New York for a quick visit.....to experience my first Capsule. I thought I was prepared for heat and the city by packing light layers, shorts and comfortable footwear. I was wrong. I ended up doing a little shopping in Soho and supplementing my packed items with the addition of a wonderful white boyfriend jacket from Reiss (for the romper below), along with a few other things- oops! Sadly, I never got a chance to wear my muted/sparkly shorts from Club Monaco- my first adventure in the world of sequins.
I tossed all my bags at the Standard Hotel, explored the high line and Chelsea Market, did a wee bit of shopping and drank too many overpriced cocktails. I also shared a few lovely meals with some of my favourite NYC based bloggers, Mariah of Quite Continental along with the fashion/resident Psychologist from Style on the Couch. We explored the workings of the Standard's Biergarten, dined behind the pawn shop at Beauty and Essex and gorged on burgers and biscuits from Bubby's. All in all, a fabulous, all to brief trip! Now back to the grind......and some rest!
