Summer's End

Before flying up to Boston, I flew to NYC to visit Montana. We had the perfect last day of summer with great weather, a girls lunch on the rooftop of Haven, and a fun time checking out the office she interned at all summer. Of course, we topped off our day with matching navy and black J.Crew fluted skirts

Central Park

Last month, I shared the perfect Bostonian summer outfit on Bedknobs & Baubles. Well, a trip to Beantown didn't happen this summer, but when I found out I was going to NYC this summer, I immediately knew this outfit was meant for a picnic in Central Park. On the last day of my trip, six of my friends from college met me for a picnic in Central Park by the boathouse. It was great catching up and reminiscing on freshman year before we all round two this week! Ironically, I ran into so many fellow BU alums and current students while visiting this city. It really is amazing how small the world is and it definitely proves how large of an alumni community you have at your finger tips when you go to college! 

Warning: There is an overload of photos, and some funny photo op moments I just couldn't narrow down.

Breakfast at Tiffany's

"What I found does the most good is just to get into a taxi and go to Tiffany's. It calms me down right away, the quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there, not with those kind men in their nice suits, and that lovely smell of silver and alligator wallets. If I could find a real-life place that made me feel like Tiffany's, then I'd buy some furniture and give the cat a name."
Breakfast at Tiffany's

Like thousands of girls and women around the world, I love Audrey Hepburn. There's just something about her. Whether it be her classy, simplistic style, the unique and slightly odd accent in her voice, or the playful, genuine spirit she emotes through her films and photographs, there will never be another Audrey Hepburn. I've seen Breakfast at Tiffany's many times, which is arguably her most iconic role, Naturally, the opening scene at Tiffany's is my favorite as Tiffany's itself is such an iconic American brand. It also has it's own special place in my heart. My dad and I used to make annual visits to NYC every year and before my eight grade graduation, I got to pick out the Elsa Peretti heart necklace as a present right in the store.

During this trip to NYC, I got to fulfill my Audrey fangirl fantasy of having breakfast at Tiffany's. I grabbed a cup of coffee and a croissant and ate in front of the store with my best friend, Montana. We didn't even go inside; we gazed and admired the diamonds as Audrey had done fifty years ago, and I had done only seven years earlier.

High Line & Chelsea Market

On my recent trip to NYC, I stopped by the Meatpacking District to visit the offices of Giorgio Armani. My friend B was lucky enough to have had a summer internship there this summer, so of course I jumped at the chance to take a tour of the offices! All I can say is that the showrooms were everything I imagined them to be since I'm such a pro after seeing the Devil Wears Prada a billion times!;-)

After our tour, we decided to walk on the High Line, which the office is quite literally located next to. I'd never been before and didn't know what exactly to expect from a converted rail line turned greenway park, but it was spectacular! The converted mile long park is innovative and relaxing with lots of great views of the Hudson River and even the Empire State Building. It's also located above Chelsea Market, which is a block long building of indoor food halls with restaurants and merchants selling everything from seafood to cupcakes, sandwiches, spices, tea, and ice cream!
It's a foodie heaven.
