On our quick little trip to New York last week, I had packed to shoot a few outfits while we were there. And then the weather had other plans for us. We could never measure the time between rain and sun, so we decided to sTOP trying to fight the weather and enjoy our time in the city. Which means exploring old favorites and never-before-seen New bits.
We stayed on the lower east side at The Ludlow Hotel. I think it’s pretty New and the room was pretty big for New York hotels, plus it had the nicest bathroom I’ve ever seen. Marble and bronze covered the place. (If you follow SnapcHat, you saw it too!) We never really spent time in LES, but it was heaven for restaurants and cafes. In literally less than a 5 minute walk we had more options to eat than days to stay. I wasn’t complaining. Also, with the intermittent rain, it was nice to have a quick place to duck during surprise downpours. TL; DR – Stay at the Ludlow in New York – Fabulous hotel, great neighborhood.
I also picked up a few things in the city. I love walking through Chelsea Market and they have a super huge Anthropologie there and I fell in love with these embroidered jeans. They have a super relaxed fit and I honestly wish I had gone down a size. (This is my normal size, but I love the loose fit.) Denim is a fall staple and I’ve been seeing this embroidered denim trend this year, but haven’t found the pair. Well, here it is: I found it, put a ring on it, it’s taken. (Good news: there are more like her.)
I bought this top this summer to take it to Tulum. But I’ve actually loved wearing it a bit later in the summer with the high neckline. Probably closer to fall I’ll be wearing a camisole underneath, but for now I don’t care tHat it’s open. (THat‘s a bargain, too!) It looks like it’s almost sold out, so I found some other lace-inspired Tops!
