Detour

Road Trip

Jim and I this past Sunday took a quick road trip to Philly to visit his family and go to a birthday party.  Philly is only a two hour car drive from Brooklyn, so it’s a great same day road trip destination.

On our way back instead of going the more direct, highway route we took a detour and made a quick stop at the Old City District.  Jim and I love all things old and historical so we took a quick hour break to stretch our legs, walk around and check out the sites.  He also got to reminisce a bit being he grew up in the area.

This alley proved to be the perfect backdrop for a few quick outfit shots.  Jim has the patience of a saint and eye of a professional photographer.  He totally called that the lighting was perfect and it was.

Stay tuned tomorrow for some of my favorite shots of the amazing, historical architecture we saw during our walk.

Hot High Line

This past Tuesday, I took the day off from work for an extended Memorial Day holiday. Jim and I spent the day in Manhattan visiting the High Line extension in Chelsea, and then doing some gallery hopping in the area. It’s safe to say we were both pretty “arted-out” after the weekend was over.

It was ridiculously hot out, so I decided to try out an outfit similar to my Memorial Day Inspiration board and go with a breezy leopard blouse, shorts and wedges. I seem to be gravitating towards blouses and shorts a lot this season.

Stay tuned for posts on both our High Line adventure as well as our gallery hopping in the next day or so!

Sooooooooo……

What a gorgeous day on Saturday this weekend!  After my Saturday morning yoga class and trip to the park to pick up my CSA share, the hubs and I ventured to Fort Greene for the first time to check out the infamous Brooklyn Flea.  I’m so glad we did, scored some awesome stuff including some vintage sunnies which you’ll see in future posts.  What most surprised me about the flea were the awesome, gourmet style food vendors!  Gotta come to this flea hungry to really get the full bang for your buck.

If anything I’m kinda disappointed I only waited to check it out until the end of the freaking summer.  There’s still another few weekends to go before summer is officially over so I guess I know what I’ll be doing the next few Saturday’s until then.
