I spent the past five days in New York City for the first time since I was 12 years old – talk about a whole different experience! I arrived Wednesday night for some work obligations on Thursday and Friday, and stayed through the weekend with some friends who live there. We had such an amazing time, I almost missed my flight because I wasn’t ready to go home yet!
We split the Gnocchi and the Kale Salad, and paired it with the most delicious cocktail, ever. No seriously – I took a picture of the drink menu and interrogated the waiter to make sure that I could re-create this delicious concoction this summer – and as soon as I do, I’ll be sure to share the recipe with you!
Sunday was by far my favorite day of the weekend, which contributed even more to my reluctance to pack up and head to the airport…we did a little shopping (and I got some great finds like this perfect green rain jacket and this cropped suede moto – both will be making appearances in some outfit posts very soon!)
We also squeezed in a visit to The Oculus, which is an absolutely incredible new structure alongside the World Trade Center Memorial. It’s filled with stores, some food and treats, pop-up stalls, and a transit center as well. I loved the all-white theme and all of the windows – it was such a bright and open area.
Afterwards, we wandered out by the water and walked along the paths there before topping off the afternoon with a late brunch at the famous Sarabeths in Tribeca where I had an incredibly delicious avocado + poached egg toast with burrata.
