Daytrip Jumpsuit

Happy Monday!! 

I hope you had a fun, and restful weekend. Mine was filled with catching up on lots of much needed rest. I've been working on so many different things recently from the move, to the blog, and everything with Anthropologie... it's been making me one very exhausted girl. 

I decided to spend all of Sunday catching up on emails, napping, and Netflixing. - I haven't had a day like that in ages, and it felt amazing to just relax all day inside my cozy little studio. 

What did you do this weekend? Are you planning anything fun for the 4th?! I can't believe it's coming up so soon

As far as today's look goes - this daytrip jumpsuit from Anthro is one of my new favorites! It's been selling so fast in stores, and online and also comes in a fun black and white print. It's incredibly comfy too which has been key for me recently when it comes to jumpsuits. With all the running around I do in the city, I've got to be able to move fast in easy, effortless pieces!

Life Lately

It's beginning to slowly hit me that I'm leaving New York... I had a dream last night that I was living in sunny Austin, and just love love loving life, but in my dream I was also missing NYC a little on the inside. 

I know that I can always come back and visit New York, but a part of me is going to miss having my cozy little studio on the Upper East Side. I've become accustomed to all of my favorite little spots in the neighborhood: My go-to Chinese take-out across the street, the Italian grocery store two blocks over where I always buy my favorite coffee, and my favorite flower bodega where I know each time I go I'll find gorgeous blooms for the apartment... there are so many things about my neighborhood that I'm going to miss!  

On that note...I'm definitely planning to make the most of my last few weeks here, but still have SO much to do before I leave!! From packing everything up in my apartment, to selling a few things I won't need, and keeping up with the blog, plus continuing my work with Anthropologie... someone send HELP please!! This girl is gonna need it!

My NYC Summer Bucket List

Happy First Day of Summer friends!! 

I can't believe Summer is already here! It feels as though this year has just been flying by. It's going to be Fall again before we know it! 

I've been rotating between flowy dresses and comfy jumpsuits this season. This tidal jumpsuit from Anthropologie featured above, is one of my absolute favorites! I've worn it sooo many times already and just now it's going to be on heavy rotation this Summer. 

Guys...this is my last official Summer as a New Yorker!! (Insert sad emoji here) It's beginning to hit me that I'm going to be saying goodbye to NYC very soon. I decided to make a fun list of things that I'm planning to do this Summer before I jet off to Texas! 

My NYC Summer Bucket List 

1. Go to The Hamptons! - I still haven't been, and am planning a trip with a few girlfriends this Summer! I can't wait. 

2. Kayak around Manhattan. 

3. Have a picnic with friends at Brooklyn Bridge Park. 

4. Enjoy a day in the sun at Coney Island - (Nathan's Famous Hotdogs included of course!)

5. Get tickets to the Ballet at Lincoln Center. 

6. Visit Central Park Zoo.

7. Take pictures at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden

8. Eat my way through Little Italy. 

9. Plan a few happy hours at some favorite rooftop spots in the city. 

10. Have a fun going away party with all of my loves here in NYC! 

Do you have anything fun on your Summer Bucket List? I feel as though I've already done so many of the things that I wanted to do when I first moved to New York. From walking The High Line, to going to the top of the Empire State Building, and getting lost in Times Square, to spending a day at The MET. 

Now it's time to sit back, and enjoy these last few weeks in New York City with some of my favorite people. I'm definitely planning to document a lot of it on Instagram Stories so stay tuned!!

Inspiration for my New Apartment

As many of you already know from last week's post, I'm moving back to Texas in a few months!! I couldn't be more excited for the move and for this next chapter of my life. Also, thank you sooo much for all of your kind words and well wishes about the move. It meant so much to me!  

While the days are growing closer to me leaving NYC, I'm starting to apartment hunt and gather inspiration for my new place in Austin! One of the big things I'm most excited about is having more space!! (Paying a little less in rent won't be bad either!)

I love bright colors, fresh flowers, fun succulents, and lots of natural light. I'm hoping I can find a cute one bedroom that I can make my own this September, and incorporate some of my favorite things! My NYC apt. was all about city chic, and I'm wanting to give my place in Austin a little Southern flare! - Some outdoor space or a small patio would be amazing too! 

I can't wait to take you on this journey with me come September! xoxo
