nyc days are the best days.

in the scheme of it all, i think all of my best days were spent in nyc. especially when it is sweater weather! had one of those days where i squeezed all of my favorite things in— thrifting, coffee, shopping and wandering the streets with bonnie and gaby. bonnie brought us to this cute little spot called saturdays where you can sip delicious iced coffee in a hidden back garden. the weather was perfect and i sort of wanted the day to last forever!

i found this cute skinny polka dotted tie the day before my trip and had to bring it along. i’ve been craving this deep emerald green in my fall wardrobe! still obsessed with these boots, and will continue to gorilla glue them until they really fall apart! 🙂

p.s. squinty eyed stranger is my brother matt. he is a goof.
