Joe Fresh snake print shirt / Collar tips from Etsy / American Apparel shorts / Abbey Dawn loafers / Anne Klein sunglasses / thrifted belt & clutch
We kicked off our third day in New York City at Bread for some amazing sandwiches and iced coffee. It was pouring rain the rest of the day so we did a bit of shopping and stopped by Eataly, an indoor Italian market with everything you could ever dream of!! I was in awe of all the gorgeous food and wanted to buy everything! Yum.
Later, we headed to Brooklyn for dinner at chef Justin Warner's restaurant Do or Dine ( watch out for his upcoming show Rebel with a Culinary Cause on The Food Network! ) He uses extremely unusual but delicious flavour combinations; I really enjoyed the foie gras doughnut, the grilled squid in chili hot sauce (last photo) and the steak with yuzu chimichurri, kimchi kale and avocado! We ended the night with a few drinks in Williamsburg :)

We started the day with an amazing brunch at Balthazar, latte and eggs en cocotte mmm! We walked around the West Side and through The High Line park which is built on an old elevated rail line, such a great idea! The rest of the day was filled with museum visits, Central Park and Upper East Side shopping and ended with a few drinks in Soho :)
I died over these gorgeous Upper East Side townhouses (last 2 photos). Gotta live there someday!!

The first day of our mini trip basically consisted of being on the road for 7 hours, riding the ferry to look at the view of the city at night (cheesy but cute!) and grabbing a few drinks at the Old Town Bar. I love roadtrips!! Don't you? :)

Collar tips from Etsy / Joe Fresh shirt
I'm packing my bags and heading to New York tomorrow for a few days! Packing was hell as usual, I wish I could bring everything! You can expect tons of outfits and photos when I get back! :)
A long awaited package arrived in the mail the other day! I had been looking for western collar tips for a while and I finally ordered these from Etsy, I couldn't choose between gold and silver and since I'm not very good at making decisions I just got both for only $16!! When it comes to accessories I prefer to keep things simple, I think these collar tips are a good way to add detail to an outfit instead of piling on jewelry!

Forever 21 blouse / vintage floral shorts / BCBG sandals / BCBG and Forever 21 bracelets
Lately I have become obsessed with making all kinds of popsicles! I made these with coconut milk, greek yogurt, and crushed fruits. I used raspberries and blueberries, but I would also suggest trying them with peaches, pineapple or even avocado!! They make such a tasty summer snack and don't they look adorable in these mismatched Moroccan glasses? Click here for the recipe!
Here are a few more combinations I am dying to try before the summer ends: Watermelon Mojito Pops, Honeydew Cucumber Margarita Popsicles & Coconut Nutella Popsicles. Yum!

Forever 21 dress / BackStage* belt / Zara heels / vintage Chanel bag / BCBG ring
I ordered this gold metal belt online a few weeks ago and it finally arrived at my doorstep! I love it paired with this colorblock dress or to add drama to an all black outfit. I have a feeling I'll be wearing it very often! ;) You can find it here!
I wore this outfit to work and simply changed my flats to heels to go out for drinks at Méchant Boeuf in the Old Port. I also couldn't resist trying this tartare trio of beef, bison and salmon, delicious!
