Lemon With A Leather Peel






[top + ring: h&m / shorts: silence and noise / necklace: forever21 /
shoes: matiko / bag: foley and corinna city tote]

Last week on Friday, I was basking in the sun in New York City with Brian for the day. I of course insisted on wearing my leather shorts which probably wasn’t the best idea considering it was about 90 degrees and HOT HOT HOT. But, oh well. These might be one of my fav pairs of shorts so I will suffer for that. I loved how striking the leather and bright yellow top came together. Glad I wore some lower wedges for all the walking we did.

I spent the afternoon in the West Village and grabbed some tasty brews at the Blind Tiger on the recommendation of Jaime and Kevin. Those guys know their beer! Brian and I enjoyed our beers and waved goodbye to NYC to head to the beach for the weekend. I have definitely been doing my share of traveling over the past month or so! It’s great to get out of your own city and experience others. NYC always welcomes me with open arms, and I love it right back!


Loved the combo of the texture and type on the walls with Brian’s amazingly awesome hat!

    The Fancy Teacup - The black and yellow combination is so dazzling on you! Really enamored with blouse, and I would wear those leather shorts during the summer even in 100+ degree weather. Glad you had a fun time at NYC!
