I had a beautiful start to the weekend with my good friend who’s name is also Ashley and boyfriend Chuck. We started the day at L Train Vintage, a cool spot in Brooklyn that has amazing vintage clothing. It was nice to be out and about since the pandemic and actually be able to shop in a store again. The fitting rooms weren’t open yet due to the virus though. I told myself I wasn’t shopping and just there for moral support for Ashley who was buying denim shorts. My boyfriend got some cool pieces as well. Long behold, there was a beautiful sequin beaded top that I could not resist. Luckily I have the best boyfriend, and he bought it for me. So technically I didn’t shop. Lol.
Next, we got hungry from all the shopping so we grabbed a bite at Sisters, a Brooklyn bar and eatery, just some blocks away. The ambience was beautiful. It had a open rooftop for the most amazing sun light to come through. It was such an LA vibe as soon I stepped into the space and between me and you I’ve never been to LA. My friend did though and she agreed so much. It’s funny how we can tell how a place is or imagine it without ever having been there. Anyway, the food was yummy. I’m trying *keyword trying* not to eat meat so I had the Veggie Burger with fries and Brussels sprouts. I also had a frozen margarita that was def not shy on the alcohol. I enjoyed the outside seating because the day was beautiful. Most restaurants in New York are open for outside dining and/or takeaway.
After, we headed back to my friend’s place which has the most amazing rooftop. We hung out on the rooftop for a bit and caught some vibes. It was the perfect way to end the day but it didn’t end there for me. My night ended unexpectedly at a barbecue where I gave into a beef shush kabob. It was so yummy but my stomach was not happy the next morning. All in all I had an amazing start to my weekend.
Being that the weather has been so hot, I decided to keep it light and airy with my outfit. The warm tones I chose complimented my skin tone so well. My satin skirt from Vince worked perfect for exploring around Brooklyn because of its elastic waistband. Not only is the color divine, but the comfort of the skirt is unmatched. Keeping the brown tones consistent with my look, I paired my skirt with a nude Zara racerback tank, which actually is a set to be worn with matching biker shorts. I love breaking looks apart as well as mixing and matching to maximize my wardrobe. Lastly my shoes, were the perfect touch to complete my feminine but still comfy roaming around in the Brooklyn heat. I love a good cheetah print and they were the perfect print to add a pop to the otherwise minimal look. They were also super comfy. I got them for a decent price during a big sale Nordstrom was having. They’re BP label which is a Nordstrom brand. Would you wear this summer look?
