For the Labor Day weekend, my mom and I traveled to New York City. We wandered through the different neighborhoods including Soho, Meatpacking and the Upper East Side and ate way too many desserts. Oh well.

The city is definitely visually stimulating.

Washington Square Park, a park I walked through almost daily last summer.

I was obsessed with the rug in our hotel lobby, Sixty Soho. It was a compilation of many oriental rugs of different vibrant colors.

My mom and I found a few interesting pieces in Artful Posters including a James Bond Sean Connery movie advertisement, a Vogue Magazine cover from the 1920s and an Elvis photograph from a concert he played in Memphis.

Of course I love murals.

My mom and I visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see the Rei Kawakubo – Comme des Garcon exhibit.

Catch was my favorite restaurant last summer, so I had to go back. We started with a sushi roll, had scallops and roasted cauliflower as our entree and finished with the most amazing chocolate cake which included a Klondike bar and salted caramel ice cream.

The other restaurants we enjoyed included The Waverly Inn, ABC Kitchen, The Little Owl, BG Restaurant, Laduree and Hundred Acres. All I highly recommend!

Life in the City

No dress code, no problem… I found great fun deciding what to wear each day to work. With few limitations, I got to be creative and get inspiration from the people with which I worked.

There was no shortage of art and culture in the city. The Met, The MOMA, and The Whitney are all worth a visit.

These shoes were a lifesaver for Margaret and me. I don’t think we could’ve walked the miles we did in our sandals and loafers. We hated ourselves for following the Adidas trend for the first couple of days, but then we got over it.

Well, you know me and murals. Had to find at least one while I was in town.

I’d rather spend less on a pair of trendy denim than splurging, and instead, I invest in the classics.

Side note, I’m obsessed with the cobblestone streets.

I found this dress at Luxury Garage Sale new with tags. Definitely a steal.

I love a two piece set that you can wear together and separate for many different looks.

These trousers have been perfect for all seasons.

The denim mini is back!!! I found this at a Rag and Bone sample sale in the city. Check out racked.com for all the sample sales going on in New York.
