I can’t believe that I have literally been in NYC for over six months! Well technically I feel like I am traveling all over for work as well, but calling the Big Apple home has been an unreal experience. This weekend is my last here for a few months, as I am headed back to Cali and Portland for some really cool projects involving the NBA. I also will be spending a chunk of time in Las Vegas for NBA Summer League, so stay tuned for some exciting things there as well.
I am totally obsessed with this two piece number from Lulu’s. It is bright and cheery, and totally summer appropriate for a brunch here with friends. I simply added a trendy western style belt and fun fringe bag from Lulu’s as well. They always nail such fun and trendy looks, and their price points are amazing. Of course my summer shoe of choice is a worn in Converse Chuck Taylor. They go with me everywhere and are super comfy and cool.

It is that time of the year again for picnics in the park. What I love about New York City is that there are several amazing places to meet friends for a day of hanging out, playing games, and eating good food. Besides that, summer concerts and events are in full swing. Every Thursday in Central Park, they have a fantastic concert, and people gather to listen to music and just hang out with friends.
One trend that hasn’t gone away is paring a simple one-piece swimsuit or bodysuit with a pair of jeans. This look is great for a day in the park, as you definitely can throw a little jacket over it if the weather gets a bit chilly, or you certainly can get a great tan as well! I love the detail in both the denim from Zara and the bathing suit from Billabong. Not only that, both pieces are under $100.00 so they are an easy and affordable trendy look.
It is all about the back and the behind this summer. Denim has risen, and the high-waisted jeans are fantastic for showing your backside. Not only that, a simple bodysuit or swim like the one above is not only sexy, but it really doesn’t show too much off when paired with denim like this. I suggest making sure that you have the right bra to go with this, which can easily be found at Nordstrom.
I am changing up my normal choker this season for a fun bolo style necklace. This one from Chan Luu is pretty dang cool. It definitely stands on its own and was the perfect added piece to this hipster looking outfit. I paired it with a simple t-shirt and maxi skirt the other day and it couldn’t have looked cooler. When it comes to accessories this season, try something new that you have yet to discover.
Embellished jeans, especially in a distressed look, are still going strong and can be found at almost every store. This pair from Zara are perfect for me. They are high- waisted with a little bit of a boyfriend cut to them. The floral embroidery is not too overwhelming but done in a way that they look expensive. This is obviously fantastic because they are under $100!
Dirty Laundry from Chinese Laundry always has cheap and fun shoes. These natural espadrilles are perfect for a summer day. They can slip on easily, be taken off in the grass, and are super comfortable. Not only that you can wear them on their own to the beach in a bathing suit or pair them with a cute summer dress for brunch!
I am here in the city for a week, and it’s the heat of Summer in the city for sure! I love the casual ease of this cute jumper from Boys and Arrows . This super fun clothing line just makes you smile. I paired it with my Birkenstocks to walk the city in, and a fun necklace to give it a little sass.
Check out all the details below.
Cheers to a week in New York City, and much ice cream eating indeed!
