OH Fashion Week. You are filled with so much goodness. I was super excited that last weekend Brian and I took a trip back into the city for the day. On the agenda was a much anticipated brunch date with my lovely friend Laura of On the Racks. Our schedules finally collided and we planned a date on the upper west side. It’s so funny because when I was walking from the subway to the restaurant with Brian, this girl was walking in front of us in the most amazing outfit and hat. And I made a mental note about until 2 minutes later I heard, “Kim??” OMG. It was LAURA who’s outfit I loved. So not a coincidence 😉 It was so nice that Brian was with us and offered to take some snaps of us to ladies. We shot some quick outfit photos and then we were both off! It was a short but amazing little date and I am so glad we had the chance for some chat time. Heart you my West Coast Darling!

Afterwards, Brian and I headed downtown to meet with the amazing people of Warby Parker. I tried on probably a million pairs of glasses playing dress up in front of the mirror. I have found myself wearing glasses much more frequently so I have been searching for a new pair! Can’t wait to share my photos from my trip there. We then took a stroll to the Grey Dog Cafe which Christine introduced me to. OMGEE. A giant chocolate chip cookie, and cafe ole later and I was good to go. We later met up with my dear Melissa and her man for a dinner before we rushed off to head back to Philly for the night.

SO! The outfit. I was so excited to wear my first piece from Jupe Boutique, one of eat.sleep.wear.’s newest sponsor! I picked out this versatile blouse with strong puffed shoulders. I have a feeling its going to remix very well into my wardrobe. I also purchased this faux leather skirt from h&m after seeing ChristineKrystal, and Keiko rocking it. IN LOVE. I feel so glamourous in this full skirt! I am so looking forward to this 3 day weekend of catching up and relaxing at home. Enjoy. xoxo.
