I don't mean maybe! ๐Ÿ“soho, manhattan

I've been obsessing over Hair for so many months (the latest issue of Sawyer is even Hair-themed!), and was psyched to see it in the Soho Artists & Fleas. I don't have record player, but almost bought it just to have around. I wanted someone else to be able to enjoy it properly instead. You should definitely check it out on Spotify or something though- it makes me so nostalgic for the late 60's, even though it was kind of a messy time (but what time isn't?). It just has such a vibrant sound and spirit. I personally love the revival recording, but the original (pictured) is arguably more authentic.

The Public Hotel is brand new to Chrystie St., and I'm already so in love. Besides the lobby market, neon escalators, and second-floor infinity mirror and pool table, their rooftop bar has one of the most unbelievable views of Manhattan. There are white couches everywhere for hanging out and taking in sun, plus speakers everywhere filled with music you'll definitely shazam. 

Until next time! ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ๐Ÿ›

Hi!! ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒŸ Just wanted to say a quick hello with this simple outfit- mostly to show off this embroidered denim skirt from Topshop. I've been working in the city this summer and working on the August issue of Sawyer (sawyermagazine.com)! The next issue is 'Hair,' which I'm so thrilled about because I've been obsessing over all incarnations of the show for months and months. It's a piece thats really influenced my state of mind + lifestyle and so I'm so happy to share it with everybody! I've also been loving Younger, which you can watch on the TV Land website. Look out for more posts on the blog section coming super soon!

We're officially one month deep into Summer, and you know what that means- I'm back in the city regularly and blogging as I go! These were taken by FIT, on a street lined with these tall, colorful murals. The pajama pant trend (aka my new lifestyle) is definitely a big staple in my closet this summer. I love the look of the loose culottes, and the material is really light in the heat.

Urban Spaces are my current NY obsession. They're outdoor markets that sell THE COOLEST and most creative food from lots of different vendors and pop ups. You can read about/locate them here. Jars By Dani is a favorite vendor of mine. They sell jars filled with layers of sweet goodness (like frosting, cookies, and whipped cream). My flavor of the day was cake batter, layered with chewy sugar cookie crust, cake batter filling, whipped cream, and rainbow sprinkles.

More soon!!!

Just wanted to say hi with a casual Sunday outfit! These pictures were taken by my bff @lauryn.oliver, who semi twinned with me today (as seen to the left). On an unrelated note, I've been very fascinated with the life/work/mythology of James Dean lately. I recently watched "Rebel Without a Cause" (1955) for the first time after seeing the film mentioned in my US History textbook. It was so interesting to watch it keeping in mind both the cultural context of the time period and the life of Dean. It made him such a teenage icon and symbol of rebellion and defiance and complexity and disillusionment and, at times, androgyny. His influence is still so evident in the celebrities and movies of today, and I'm really looking forward to continuing to delve into his work and history. 

More soon! ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒŸ
