Thursday: Day Three

IMG_4338Day three in NYC: so t was Thursday, the 9th, and we had planned a day of sightseeing. I sort of missed the mark on my outfit because it was super windy and I was way too cold to go sightseeing. So instead we had to go do some shopping. It was unintentional I swear 🙂 As for the unfortunate outfit, I was wearing my H&M red dress with cut-outs, which I don’t mind as long as they are covered up; a Pull&Bear cardigan; thick black tights; my black pashmina, which I wore during the entire trip; my thrifted Dunlop leather bag and my new Michael Kors flats:

I’m Back!

Sorry for the super long delay between posts, I got back from NYC on Tuesday night but it has been crazy since. Wednesday was spent half in bed (jet lag?) and half unpacking. Then I met up with my bestie for a double date and we went to Bruxx for dinner. I was a bit disappointed as they had changed the menu (and my favorite dandelion salad was on longer on it), but otherwise it was a very pleasant evening out.

NYC wish list

new-yorkSo I’m in New York city right now but since I’m writing this post in advance, I’m actually in Prague, in my bed room, packing my things and daydreaming about what I want to see while I’m there. I don’t know if we’ll get to see all these places, but here is my NYC wish list of places I want to visit:

1. Central Park

Packing List

Tomorrow I’m heading to NYC for a week of sightseeing, shopping and overeating – in other words, a typical holiday. Anyways, since I need to start packing I thought I’d share my packing list. We’re going for seven days and I’m both super thrilled and a little nervous (especially about Mr. Pig – my sister will be staying at my place and taking care of him). But it’s all good. Here’s what I’m taking on this exciting adventure.

The most essential item on my list is a pair of skinny jeans.

skinny jeans As my preferred type is a dark wash with a slight stretch to them, I’m taking my favorite pair from Mango and I’ll be wearing them for the flight as I want to be both relatively comfortable but not sluggish.

Leopard Print Heels

Yesterday’s shoe purchase post got me thinking about leopard print shoes. Leo print is one of my all-time favorites on shoes. It is almost a “neutral” in my book. I counted that I have 29 pairs of leopard print shoes in my current collection. Anyways, I thought it would  be nice to do a sort of tribute to/flashback of my leopard print shoes.

Let’s start with one of my favorites:

miss selfridge leopard print heelsThese shoes are from Miss Selfridge and I got them in 2011 when we were on vacation in London (I bought 14 pairs of shoes on that trip, crazy.) I’ll be honest and say they aren’t the most comfortable shoes in the world, but they are still amazing.

LONDON recap

airport chicSo I finally have all of our London photos and I must warn you, there are quite a few! That’s why I decided to divide this post into three. This particular post will contain photos from days one and two.  Above is a photo taken at the Prague airport – as you can see I was excited about our trip and dressed in my typical airport attire: skinny jeans, trainers, leather jacket. Huge handbag to fit all of my crap (my kindle fire, a magazine, lip balm, tissues, my passport, boarding pass, wallet, phone, mp3 player, a pashmina in case it gets cold).

London Shopping Pt. 1

collage dressesYesterday we just got back from London and our trip was amazing. I’ll do a recount of it in another post (I don’t have all the photos yet) but since I couldn’t wait to share at least something with you, here all the stuff that I bought! London is a major shopping event for us. In the photo above are all of the dresses I purchased. Yup, I bought 9 dresses. I also bought some other wonderful things but in this post it’s all about the dresses: Continue reading London Shopping Pt. 1

London 2012

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, we visited London again in July 2012 for another wonderful vacation (although it had rained almost entirely throughout our trip). This time we stayed for 6 days (5 nights) so we got to experience a tad more than on our first trip. The photo below is one of my favorites from our trip because that dog was adorable and oh so cuddly and also because it is the only photo I have of that scarf (which I sadly lost during this trip).

Vacation Preparation

There’s still a whole month left before M and I go on vacation. But in the midst of “studying” (I need to up my game as I’ve been slacking off too much lately!), I’m daydreaming of our pending London adventure and remembering the trips we have taken in the past. So today I thought I’d post my favorite photos from our past London visits.
