Not really sure why it took me so long to get myself out to NYC!! I absolutely have loved everything about it so far and I’ve only made it through a fraction of the city. It’s worked out so well that the hotel we’re staying at for our friend’s wedding is right along the Hudson river and an 8 minute ferry ride away from NYC. I originally took my picks with these pieces back in Chicago, but when we came across this little nook by the water, I couldn’t resist the “beach-like” feeling with the big city background.
Since I knew I was going to be doing a lot of walking, I wanted to make sure I packed some comfortable clothing! In addition to some basics, I also brought along my new striped sweater and retro-inspired shorts thanks to the California-based surf boutique, SWELL. But don’t be fooled by the “surf” part. Online surfing is probably the closet I’ll ever get to any type of surfing and I am kind of obsessed with the selection they have.
Have you ever bought or received new clothes that you just can’t helped but wear for at least a week straight? The ones where your family and friends start to wonder if you burned the rest of your clothes and have absolutely nothing else to wear? Yep, well I have definitely been a repeat offender with this look and already plan on wearing it on my flight back to Chicago next week. Both pieces are super comfy and versatile as I could easily dress up the short with a tank and some heels and the sweater would look great with a pair of skinny jeans and high-heeled sandals, so stay tuned for more looks :).
