I'm Melting...NYC



It's currently 93 degrees in NYC. I am writing this post in Bryant Park in the shade quietly suffering and sweating in a palm printed dress sporting the messy bunhead hair style (which I might add is trending). It's sooo hot! Almost as hot as the summer I spent backpacking throughout Southeast Asia. Besides the heat I'm enjoying my trip to NYC with my best friend. There have been some highs and lows and some unexpected surprises. One of them was definitely the our first airbnb experience in the East Village where we potentially inhaled some carbon monoxide and lost some brain cells (another post I promise). Canceling that reservation has caused us to be semi-nomads in NYC = apartment rental in East Village -> an uber luxurious hotel in Midtown ->staying with a friend in the Flatiron area -> and currently an "ok" hotel near Chelsea. I have lots of budget info to share about touring NYC but for now let me share some of my outfits and some of our outings.
First day at the Lower East Side (LES). 
Outfit details: Kate Spade bag ($100) & necklace ($90), pink jumper borrowed from a friend (thanks Sharon!). I'm wearing these cute sandals from T.J. Maxx but my friend cropped off my feet when he took the pic.
LES, Brooklyn, Soho
Outfit details: Tobi.com lace dress ($24), hat from Forever 21 ($8), sunglasses ($15), slip on canvas shoes from Tillys ($20), and vintage Gucci bag. 

Wore to: Dim sum and shopping in Brooklyn, afternoon wine at the Crosby Street Hotel in Soho, and then to an insane spicy dinner at Pok Pok in the LES. 


Outfit Details: Tobi.com Chevron dress ($24), Aerosoles carmel brown wedges ($39 @ Nordstrom Rack), Barney's zippered clutch

Wore to: Zarkana Cirque du Soleil @ Radio Music Hall and then to a 5 hour dance party at Industry Bar (Hell's Kitchen)

With my new (by marriage) twin cousins
Outfit Details: H&M palm print dress ($10), Kate Spade necklace ($90), and again my friend cut off our shoes in the pic (yes, I do need to give him some photo direction).

Wore to:  Fuera Bruta (Brute Force) near Union Square. This is an AMAZING show -be prepared to be surprised, soaked, and to DANCE!
