We spent a week in NYC last month – the whole fam. Mike had a conference to attend, so myself and the boys tagged along.
It was no hardship.
We rented an apartment near a park, and spent our days exploring, just the three of us. I had a ton of tips from my Instagram buddies about where to bring the boys (thank you thank you thank you!!) and the whole week was a good reboot for all of us. (I’ll share the where-to-go tips in another article – they’re too good to miss.)
But I literally wore this outfit (or a version of it) everyday.
Sometimes it would be a different shirt under the sweater (my fav LOFT shirt was worn so often I wish I had bought two – and hey! It’s 40% off the already marked-down price….), sometimes I’d swap the jeans for shorts, my Tieks instead of Chucks….but this was pretty much my uniform: comfy flat shoes, denim, turtleneck, and a button-down peeking out.
Another daily occurrence? Pax with his red boots on the wrong feet, Raines in miss-matched socks. (Raines’ shorts, incidentally, no longer have sharks on the bum. They were all worn off by sliding down rock mountains in Central Park. #howwedo)
sweater: Nordstrom (black is sold out), but the blue and cream are still available, or try this cowl neck by Autumn Cashmere, this swingy black turtleneck sweater at Nasty Gal ($68!) or this Eileen Fisher swingy black turtleneck sweater with an asymmetric hem.
jeans: old Rag and Bone….but these slightly destroyed skinny jeans by Paige has a similar vibe.
bag: Kate Spade (old)….but this Frye Cross-body satchel makes my heart beat fast
sunnies: old (and left in NY)….replaced with these Ray Bans (still my very favs)
How is your week treating you? I’m still recovering from our epically bad week last week – time change, full moon, insane boys, and I STILL can’t seem to shake this darn cold. (And thank you for all of your kind words on the #fightinglikeagirl trunk show. I’m off to acupuncture tomorrow, so here’s hoping.)
But I’m starting to get excited….I fly to Denver on Friday for a loooong anticipated girl’s weekend. YESSSSSS.
