Summer in New York

Since I won't be attending NY Fashion Week for the first season in years this September (got a wedding to plan and whatnot!!), I went up to NYC over the weekend to visit some of my favorite fashion bloggettes! So on Friday afternoon I hopped on a bus and went over to stay with the amaze Jordana of Clutch 22!Before going out, I put on a Rock & Republic corset top I bought at Annie Cream Cheese, a premiere vintage and consignment store in the DC area. Whew, where did they come from??? I'm also wearing a Madewell skirt, Michael Kors moccassins and a vest courtesy of Banana Republic.
Jordy & I went out to Rare View, the rooftop bar and garden area of the delicious steak place Rare, and met up with Amy of Midtown Girl and Dina of Eye4Style! We had fun catching up, discussing boys and first date looks, work and blogging and puppies!
For the next day I rocked one of my new purchases - pretty lace skirt bought at Pretty People Vintage! I also wore a camel tank from Guess?, Betsey Johnson leopard print belt, and sandals from Yes Style. I forgot to take a full body pic, so this was taken at my house just a few minutes ago :O
Now I WISH this was taken at my house! After sleeping in like crazy and grabbing a super late lunch of mostly sangria, we went to hang out on a rooftop deck at a beautiful building in Tribeca. The view was amazing! From there we went out to dinner at STK's just open rooftop... if you're in NY during the summer you apparently spend all your time on the tops of buildings!
On my last day (it went so fast!) Jordy and I went out to brunch to the Ember Room with the ever lovely Jennine of The Coveted and IFB. We watched amazingly hilarious videos of cute animals in Japan, caught up and had great food!

I then went off to go back home to DC! With my crazy work and travel schedule plus wedding, I've don't know when I'll be up next, but I can hear NYC's siren song already calling out again ;)
