Day Two: Roaming the City & Emptying My Wallet


On Saturday, Jasmine and I just roamed around the city after she went to a few fashion shows in the morning. It was great not having a schedule of things to do or places to be. Our first stop was TopShop! I'm just glad the only one in the United States is only a train ride away from me! We also paid a visit to Madewell which was right next door. Can you say HEAVEN? I'm pretty sure Jasmine and I died a little bit when we walked in, and then died a little bit more when we saw the Alexa Chung for Madewell collection. We both splurged a little bit that weekend at Madewell since neither of us were very good at resisting temptation. Jenny from Fashion for Writers was also with us when we visited again Sunday evening and she snagged a blouse and some shorts! I can't wait to see how she styles them (and flood my room from drooling).


After a few more shopping stops (and delicious cupcakes from a cupcake truck - as you can see from our photos) we decided to end the day with a trip to Central Park. There's no way you can visit NYC without crossing Central Park off your list. We awkwardly snapped some outfit photos while getting some strange looks from passerbyers. There was a gorgeous white bridge which made for the perfect setting.

 

(top zara, shorts h&m, sandals urban outfitters)

As the sun was setting we sat down for some delicious burgers and chips (with homemade guacamole, yum) at a small outdoor cafe. We got there at the perfect time since they started to close down once the sun set. Then being the weaklings that we are, we headed on back to my apartment.


Check back for Day 3 (Chictopia10 Media Tech Summit!)! :)

  21. Bringing sexy back EH JEN? :) I'm kidding... not really. You and Jasmine seriously MELT MY HEART. Too adorable. I wish I could've been there with you guys. DARN SCHOOL AND EVERYTHING.

    I was so tempted to bribe my sister to order me a dress from the Madewell collection... SO TEMPTED. I'm clearly not good at this attempt at banning myself from ridiculously over priced goods.

    FAIL. Anyway, I can't wait to see more pics! LOVE YOU LOTS <3 xoxo
