Last week we arrived to NYC and hit the ground running. I’ve mentioned that we’ll be back and forth to and from the city as we work on a handful of projects that I can’t quite tell you about (soon, soon!). I love New York. I love the energy and the endless amounts of things to do, places to eat and people to see. While most of our time has been spent inside working, we’ve been able to fit in some delicious dinners and weekend activities to enjoy what the city has to offer. It’s been almost a year now since we moved from SF to Charleston, and while we love our “smaller” city, it’s been fun to spend more time in New York.
The tunic silhouette of this dress isn’t the typical style that I gravitate towards, but the color and fabric were what caught my eye. It’s one of those pieces that doesn’t look like much until you try it on, and then you realize how incredibly flattering it is. The combination of the midi style and tie waist make the result a simple, elegant combination. This has been my go-to dress for meetings lately- I’ve packed it for all of our trips to NYC. It also comes in a white version here and a black version here. And if you’re looking for something similar at a more budget-friendly price point, this one and this one are great options too.
Thomas got me these Lanvin sneakers (last seen here and here) as a gift for Christmas a few years ago (they’re also his favorite style!). I love them because they’re the only sneaker that I actually wear with nice dresses, trousers, etc. While my Nike sneakers are great, they definitely create more of an athleisure look, which I usually stick to for casual clothes and traveling. While this particular nude pair is no longer available, they did come out in this blush color here this season. And if you’re looking for more sneaker styles that’ll pair nicely with feminine looks, these, these and these all come in the blush hues I love.
