Weekend Recap // Our Quick NYC Getaway

photo 1
The Marlton Hotel. The loveliest hotel we've ever stayed in. It was so well-appointed that we didn't care how small the room was.

We are back from our quick trip to NYC and had just about the best time! Even though we were there for one night, we really packed it in. I was able to meet with a friend and talk shop, then Steve and I walked around and did a little shopping (so rare for the two of us to do this without Cora), and then it was time for our dinner reservations. The next morning we woke up somewhat early to grab some breakfast and enjoyed it at Washington Square Park while people watching. We squeezed in a few more shopping destinations after that and then ended our trip with the kind of comfort food you'd want when staying in the NYU area, ramen. Check out the pics from our trip below!

Met my friend, Courtney, at Buvette's, a cafe that instantly transported me to France.

We don't have a crew cuts section in our J.Crew in Annapolis, so I was having entirely too much fun finding all sorts of goodies for Cora at the one on 5th Ave.

Enjoyed a magical, romantic dinner at Palma. The setting was to-die-for and the wall of perfectly blossomed roses was insane.

Absolutely magical.

After dinner, we stumbled upon the coolest, most fun vintage shop ever, Krystyna's Place. The owner, Krystyna, was a total kindred spirit and we bonded over how we both love vintage everything and our hoarding tendencies.

This dress stole my heart.

And this one too.

Just stunning. There's really nothing more that you can say about this.

Fab-u-lous.

Simple yet sooo good.

Another one that I just had to try on.

No trip to NYC is complete without a stop at Fishs Eddy.

Ended our trip with some good 'ol comfort food at Ramen-Ya.

Style // My Kind of Coffee Date Look

I love hats. Despite the fact that I don't wear them that often, I really do love them. And the minute I saw this modern floppy fedora, I knew it would be the perfect accessory for this Fall season. I took it out for a spin with my new Loft printed blouse for a coffee date with my husband and I have to say, this is now my favorite look for Fall. It's easy, comfortable and warm too!

Weekend Recap // Food, Friends, & Family

photo 3
Tammy and I stumbled upon Dangerously Delicious Pies after our incredible lunch and I am so glad we did. Tons of options to choose from and all oh-so-good.

We've had such a packed weekend and just a packed schedule in general that I've been quite naughty with posting anything on the blog. But I'm back and wanted to share a few snaps of what's been going on lately. And I wanted to share the newest items from Shop Proper Hunt too!

I met up with my incredibly stylish friend, Tammy, for a long overdue lunch and she, of course, knew of the hottest place to go in the city. Toki Underground is the coolest ramen shop in town and I highly recommend checking it out. The Fried Chicken Steamed Buns is amazing as is their Red Miso Ramen dish.

Cora's all set for her first overnighter at my parents' new house. She had to try out her new suitcase, ya know.

After exploring the Savage Mill shops, a pit stop at Bonaparte Breads was kind of a must.

The almond croissants were the most amazing ones I've ever had.
