Monday Morning Musings | 76

New York City -

Hello from New York City!

On Thursday afternoon I received a project that required me to be in New York City this week, so on Friday afternoon Ryan and I booked flights and we flew out first thing Sunday morning. It’s been a whirlwind of a weekend getting packed, wrapping up work projects, and of course, laundry! 

I’m so thankful for this season in life where we are able to just get up and go on a whim. I know it won’t last forever, but for now it’s fun, only mildly stressful, and truly romantic! ha! Either way, we are taking it in and really just going for it. 

Instead of flying up first thing Monday morning we decided it would be best to get up to the city on Sunday so we could be settled before the start of a busy work week. We ended up spending a perfect Sunday in the city. Brunch, coffee, shopping, long walks, and a 7:00 pm reservation at The Polo Bar! It was magical.

Also, I’m still in disbelief I was able to land us a reservation at The Polo Bar. We’ve been wanting to go for YEARS but it’s always booked! I called on Friday thinking there was no way they’d have an opening, and the hostess said, “actually we just had a table for two open up for 7:00 pm, would you like it?” 

I couldn’t say Y-E-S fast enough! 

Such a fun start to a magical and busy week.


5 Things I’m Loving:

Lilac Dress

I seem to find the prettiest and simplest pieces from Lilly Pulitzer, which is always kind of funny to me since LP is known for their patterns. But truthfully I love their classic finds like this lilac dress, and this top! I wore this dress in Charleston and I brought it with me again to NYC because it’s just too pretty not to take out for another twirl!

Tinted Moisturizer

I’ve been mixing my foundation with tinted moisturizer just about all Summer long. Honestly, with how humid it’s been it felt like the only thing I could do! I’ve been using both the Beauty Counter Tinted Moisturizer and my all time favorite Laura Mercier’s Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer. But LM just launched a new formula that I’m dying to try!! I’ve already heard such great things!

Square Necklines

J.Crew just put out over 300 new arrivals and I’ve got to be honest, I’m loving them! But the item that stood out to me the most was this square neck fitted t-shirt. Does it not just seem like the perfect elevated tee?! It also comes in black to and the price point is fabulous!

Walmart, Are You Kidding?

Guys, is really showing up with some amazing pieces lately and have been actively stepping up their game!! I fell into the deep hole of Walmart’s new Shop By Style Boutique and found SO.MANY. THINGS. Like these glasses, this tea cart (ahem, bar cart), these lamps, and so much more. Have you started shopping on yet?! I honestly think it’s becoming more and more like Amazon and I’m HERE FOR IT.

$60 Off These Loafers

The more and more I wear M.Gemi shoes the more I fall in love with them. Last week I told you all about these pumps, but guys, look at these pretty pink loafers!! Gah. So pretty. Their shoes are so beautifully made and incredibly comfortable. I can say without a doubt that they are an investment worth making.
