sweater dress

Brooklyn Bridge

My bestie was in New York with me this past weekend and we had fun doing some touristy things, like walking across the Brooklyn Bridge! We tried to walk it Saturday, but it starting snowing after lunch and it was a little too much for us to handle for the entire stretch of the bridge. Instead we ended up visiting a few other sites, and squeezing in a little shopping throughout the day, of course. One of my girlfriends recently turned me on to & Other Stories, so when we walked by, I had to drag Melissa in. I’ve been trying not to buy new things that I won’t wear here right now in the cold, it’s been hard. Finding this dress was pretty exciting for me…long sleeves, sweater material, $30, SCORE! I knew exactly how I was going to wear it, and luckily enough, the next day was gorgeous…we crossed the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan, walked a strip of the High Line, Central Park, and Fifth Avenue down to Time Square. I don’t know if it’s just because there is nothing like this in Houston, but something about crossing the bridge, even though it’s just a walk, felt amazing. This has been my favorite “walk” here so far. 

Every day in New York is beautiful and new, there are so many things to see and experience. Exploring this city has been an inspiring adventure and I can’t wait to see what I discover next!

Major Sweater

IMG_8378I’ve always been a big fan of sweater dresses, so when I found this XL cable knit on sale at Banana my first thought was ‘this is long enough to wear as a dress.’ I know it’s still pretty short, but, throw on some OTK boots and you’re barely showing any skin…but if that’s still a little too risque for you, just add tights! I’ve also worn this as a regular sweater with skinny jeans and flats. Super comfy, a major sweater is def a must have in my closet for this time of year.IMG_8399IMG_8475IMG_8467IMG_8404IMG_8410IMG_8417IMG_8444IMG_8463
