Flower Power

Today was my last class of my last spring semester and it feels so bittersweet.  I’m so excited to be moving on to new adventures, but New York has really become home to me and I’ll be sad to leave in two weeks!

But I am so thrilled about this warm weather, and I made a vow sometime in January when I was up to my knees in snow not to complain about summer no matter how hot it gets.  So even though I was a little too toasty in this outfit (I changed into jean shorts and sandals as soon as I got home from school) I’m just so glad it’s the season for t-shirts and floral print!

I’m also excited because I got my tote bag from Brooklyn Industries in the mail yesterday!  Ever since I found out I was going to Paris I’ve been on the hunt for a quality tote bag that wasn’t too expensive.  I like carrying little cross-body bags, so I just wanted a tote to travel and then use as a school bag for my final semester.  I was stuck between totes from Fossil and Madewell when I stumbled across this vegan leather bag and fell in love.  Great quality, cool brand, and about one third of what I was planning on spending.  It’s soft but sturdy, and coral on the inside.  Oh also on the inside there’s a whole extra bag.  Yeah.  It comes with a cross-body bag with a removable strap.

If you’ve done a lot of traveling, leave me a comment and let me know some advice you wish someone would’ve told you that makes traveling a lot easier, whether it’s a tip, something I need to pack, or a place I should visit!

Spring Style + Smorgasburg

My best friends will tell you that while I love fashion, my first love is food.  So needless to say, food festivals like Smorgasburg are my absolute favorite place to be on a Sunday morning.  Smorgasburg is a place that I recommend to both fellow New Yorkers and tourists, because it has something for everyone to enjoy: great food, a fun Brooklyn vibe, and a beautiful view of the lower Manhattan skyline.  There are dozens of vendors every weekend, so there’s also something for every taste, whether you’re paleo, vegan, or on an all-carb diet.

is butter a carb

Flowy, loose layers are great for spring, but mostly great for hiding the pudge you get after eating a ramen burger, spicy tuna poke, and a thai tea fudgesicle.  If you’ve been to Smorgasburg, let me know what food is your favorite!
