Well today was just a lovely afternoon as I celebrated yet another friend’s Aries birthday. The restaurant Jones Wood Foundry is a lovely wine and beer bar on the Upper East Side with a beautiful restaurant in the back which has multiple rooms with different character feel in each. We were one of the first to be sitting in the outdoor seating since it finally just started to get warmer. We had Sancerre, the Fish n Chips and the Salmon Burger. I’m wearing a Vince white blazer, and H&M Blue Dress and MIA snakeskin heels which I think are a fabulous design.
This outfit I wore to an Instagram meet up about a couple weeks ago. It was amazing to meet so many talented photographers who are also interested in a social media platform that has had continuous growth. It was actually quite windy on the East River in Manhattan as we walked from the Manhattan Bridge to the Brooklyn Bridge taking photos of different subjects as we went along. The photographer which can be found @canhatam, a Boston based photographer originally from Turkey has been blowing up on Instagram with his beautiful photos using the hashtag #discoveraround. My Burberry jacket was envied by many since I seemed to have the warmest one on, however, my short dress underneath for the after party was not helping with the under draft. My Sam Edelman boots definitely helped keep my legs warmer and they were not painful at all throughout the walk.
I love Chelsea for its charm, dining, speakeasy’s and the overall artistic vibe. I appreciate when business owners try to be unique, different and classy, and so many entrepreneurs have done just that to make this a great neighborhood. Although I live on the Upper East Side, my outfit seemed to do me well as an understated blend of “look at me if you want to notice” instead of “LOOK AT ME”. I find it funny that whenever I have a guy take my photos they don’t take the full body of my feet, but you get a little peak at my shoes. I’m wearing one of my favorite BCBG Maxazria blazers mixed with my grandmother’s silk pink button up top, brown corduroys and strappy leather and brown platforms.
