Empire State of Mind

You can ask anyone I travel with, like my girl friend Mash of Mash-elle Blog - I have a bit of a traveller's weather curse. Any time I fly down to Florida and it's predicted to be sunny, it ends up pouring. In Cancun, it thunder stormed 3 out of our 5 days there, and it actually RAINED Day One of Coachella in the desert. It never rains in the Coachella desert!

Which is why when I arrived in Manhattan, armed with an umbrella and plenty of rain gear due to past experience, I was shocked we had a week of cloudless skies and perfect New York weather. Is my luck changing?!

Rachel and I decided to go to the top of the Rockefeller Centre late enough to catch the sunset and be able to stay to see the skyline after dark. But I absolutely did not expect THIS view - the air was crystal clear with not a trace of hazy smog.

I purchased this baby polka dot romper from Urban Outfitters. Basically, obsessed. The silky material is so light and I love the flutter hem on the shorts. 

The perfect view of Central Park


Lately I'm also loving these large silver coin statement necklaces. This one from H&M is now sold out, but see a similar one HERE.

The Empire State was lit in rainbow lights for the Pride weekend kick-off.

  6. Loving the sharpness and tone of your landscape photos! I know how difficult it is to get a 100% clear shot up there :P Also, I think it goes without saying that your hair and face and everything looks absolutely beautiful - especially loving the hair flip photo in the disco room aha x

  7. Amazing pictures!!! The sunset, central park, buildings, lights! The view from your hotel to the city was incredible!! And your romper is so cute! Still haven't been to Urban Outfitters (or NYC!), but one day... ONE DAY! :)

  10. Gorgeous!! The colors really are fantastic in these. Love your outfit and rain does suck on vacation, but we've got a drought in CA so I'm jealous. :)
