Wow! What a hot and humid day in New York over Memorial weekend. Walking around after a 1 hour class at Soul Cycle probably didn’t help either. Needless to say, we had a great day. I love coming to NYC for a quick recharge. The liveliness of the city is what seduces me to come frequently. I’ve always imagined myself living here but for now, I am happy coming here every month or two. I live near Philadelphia so its easy for me to get here. Every time I come here, I want to look cute but also comfortable since it’s easy to rack up to 7 miles of walking – which we normally do. This outfit was actually perfect. I was both comfortable and I thought it looked cute to boot. We didn’t have any “fancy” plans. Just trotting through this energizing city, finding fun foods & treats, light shopping and taking in the awesome playground this city offers.
I got this top from Target. What a place that is, huh? I got this on sale for around $18. Shows that you really don’t need expensive things to look polished. On the flip-side, I got the leggings at Lululemon but luckily for me I had a gift certificate for my birthday….. from..eh-hem… 10 months ago! I forgot all about it, until I switched out my wallet! The shoes did fine. They are from Superga. I really love a platform sneaker. By the end of the day, my feet needed a little TLC because of the lack of motion of the sole but overall I was comfortable. The backpack is from River Island. I LOVE this online shop! Check it out. Everything looks high end without the price tag. My favorite necklace is from Origami Owl. You can build your own locket. It’s a nice statement piece when you are dressed more casually. I like to make a balance of my own personal glamour and casual when I come to New York for the day.
