NO MORE SUMMER

September 28, 2012

Dress – MINKPINK, Backpack – NYC flea market, Boots – Dolce Vita from Dear Fieldbinder, Necklace – Vanessa Mooney
Oh how I miss thee summer. Despite the humidity, east coast summers most definitely are the best. They days are always alive no matter where you are at, and especially so in NYC. Call Me Maybe is still the song that I remember this past summer with. Out dancing with my friends late into the night to the cheesiest stuff on the radio. Best nights ever. These pics were taken during Labor Day weekend, on a sticky evening before meeting up with a friend for drinks and food. I just found this handmade Thai-style backpack in a market in Soho and it hasn’t left my back since. It’s so summery and festive. It’s colors remind me of what summer should always be like forever. I’m ready for fall, but summer I will always have a permanent place in my heart.

CENTRAL LONDON

There is nothing more delightful to me than being a complete and utter stranger in a brand new city . . . a brand new country! Not only do I want to get to know the place like a local, finding the hidden, hole-in-the-wall nooks and secret hidden spots, but I want to be able to appreciate all that makes it famous and known around the world by all. A lot of Londonders I met on this trip told me that these places weren’t worth it. They are too touristy. Too crowded. To blaaaah. But I didn’t care. Natalie and I set aside a whole day committed to hitting up a few of London’s most well known spots imprinted in the minds of the majority of us American thanks to the movies, television, and news coverage. We ran through the sprawling open grass of St. James Park. Not caring who stared. We did the whole cheesy/touristy/posing thing in front of Buckingham Palace (and wondered if we still had a chance of becoming princesses). Then we fought our way through the endless maze of the posh Chelsea and Kensington areas, to in the end find ourselves lost in the endless floors of Harrods. Then off to Westminster Abbey and Big Ben it was. We drowned our senses in the stunning Gothic architecture of buildings pulsating with history and age and timeless beauty. All so ready to impress and capture the hearts of all that pass by. I was shocked to realize by the end of our London trip that I barely looked at the pages of tips and recommendations that were given to me. Each day was unplanned and spur-of-the-moment, and I think it worked out best that way. I’d wake up in the morning, feel the urge to see Buckingham Palace and dream of marrying a prince, and we’d up and do just that. Then we’d just figure out the rest of our day as we went. I miss that feeling of having the world literally at your fingertips, putting your finger on a map, and saying “Let’s do this”. The end of this day in particular was quite breathtaking. The best view of the Thames River right beside Big Ben during a magical sunset. London. Nothing get’s better than this. xo

WORKING IT

September 27, 2012

Some pictures that I took of my sister Natalie earlier this summer that I just stumbled upon. I love them so much. My sister really is a vision. Always working it. Even though it’s only been a few days since I’ve seen her, I already miss this little nugget!

PLAYING THE TOURIST

Day 4 of London for me was all about being the ultimate tourist. Yeah, everyone does Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Street, so why the hell not??? Carnaby Street was also quite lovely with little hole in the wall shops that must not be missed. I love being surrounded by a big city vibe, and these areas of Central London gives off just that. Wonderful for people watching. The sidewalks have massive amounts of heads going in every sort of direction. There is always a sense of urgency, but never a feeling of stress that can easily come about in NYC. I like the balance I feel and see in London. And it’s a lot of fun dodging people on bikes and those big old double-decker buses. Excitement in the air. Every big city has a Chinatown, and London’s few blocks of Chinese restaurants is adorable and has delicious dim sum offerings if you are in the mood. Central London is street after street of epic buildings that are oh so European. I always walk slower in the city so I can take it all in with my eyes. At night, we met up with our friend Gabi who has grown up in London to hit up some fashion parties and a late night Vietnamese chow fest. This girl is the funniest and I love her British accent. Makes everything sound so much better!

Oh yeah . . . and today is my BIRTHDAY! I am 25!!! I almost forgot about my birthday because of all of the European travel madness! Going out to celebrate tonight with friends 🙂
