Sunday at the Met

At the Met 1Happy Monday, loves! Wanted to share an amazing experience from the past weekend with you guys today! I can’t say that I’m always a fan of visiting museums…but when an exhibit as special as this one comes around, I’d gladly haul my butt up to 83rd street to check it out!

The particular exhibit I’m referring to is “China: Through the Looking Glass.” So many of my friends and co-workers have gone to see the exhibit, and of course, it comes highly rated–to the point where the display has been extended until September 7th! (So no excuses, go see it ASAP!) The whole exhibit is based around ancient and modern fashions that have been influenced by asian culture. Some of these dresses in the exhibit, as well as whole displays, were absolutely breathtaking! From the gowns of Karl Lagerfeld to Tom Ford to Chanel, and even Robert Cavalli! If you’re a fashion & history lover, this is for you!

At The Met 5After viewing the exhibit, we made our way up to the Met’s Rooftop Garden & Bar. Gorgeous weather, breathtaking views…I couldn’t have thought of a better way to spend a nice Sunday in the city.

Summer In Lilly: July 4th Weekend

Summer in Lilly 1Happy Monday, loves! Having a bit of a “back to reality” moment here after the July 4th long weekend. Feeling much more rested though and so ready to tackle the 2nd half of my internship!

I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend the 4th this year–a much needed weekend getaway staying at a B&B, exploring one of the cutest beach towns of New Jersey!

Blogger Off Duty

Blogger Off Duty 3Happy Friday, loves! It’s rare these days to get an actual break from reality and I didn’t even realize how much I needed a vacation until I was on the beach in Miami. The vacay was exactly what the doctor ordered: soaking in the sun, toes in the sand, and of course, endless cocktails. šŸ™‚ Not to mention, being able to break out just a bit of my summer wardrobe after the winter hibernation the past 5 months…it felt amazing to be able to wear shorts and a cami again!Blogger Off Duty 4Ā Blogger Off Duty 5 (more…)
