Navy Blue

When I'm shopping, I'm consistently drawn to all items in one of my favorite hues: navy blue! I don't know if it is the neutral tone or the nautical feel (not to mention the fact that it goes with everything), but I've been stocking up on navy basics this summer. Here's a few pieces I'm lusting after.



ONE // j.crew silk crepe stripe top
TWO // ll bean leather handle boat tote
THREE // j.crew double stripe swimsuit
EIGHT // navy petite anchor wrap

Weekend in Brooklyn

For the time I've spent in New York City, I haven't done too much venturing to the other boroughs besides Manhattan. A couple weekends ago, I spent both Saturday and Sunday in Brooklyn. Saturday, I went to the beautiful Prospect Park for Tropfest, a short film and music festival. It was very relaxed -- people were laying out on blankets and listening to music. I love it! Prospect Park was gorgeous. If you're looking for an expansive NYC park to explore, I highly suggest this one! There was an algae-filled pond with a waterfall, and shady walking paths.

Sunday, I took my long-awaited trip to Coney Island. I've wanted to go for a while but never made it out last summer. It was exactly what you'd expect: a little trashy, a little touristy, a little cheesy. But overall, a great place to spend an afternoon, and an easy way to get to the beach via Subway. The lines were long at Nathan's, and I don't eat hot dogs, so we grabbed a bite at Ruby's Bar and Grill next door on the Boardwalk. The food was so-so, but it was a fun beach bar atmosphere.
