Today’s Drink:

“Ground to Glass”
(Corralejo Blanco tequila, red bell pepper puree, english cucumber, lime juice, summit orange bitters, hickory smoked salt.)

The Summit Bar –133 Ave C

Bartender – Lorene

I imagine it’s difficult to perfectly blend red bell pepper puree with any alcoholic ingredients, but seeing that it was tequila, I thought it might be genius. Alas, it was. With a dash of cucumber, lime, and orange, the cocktail went down really well. The pepper puree doesn’t overpower the overall flavor. To top it off, the smoked salt was delicious. This concoction is a great wake me up for your taste buds.

YouTube: Sailing with Saint James

Our latest YouTube is a sail along (get it?) Last week we went on a sailing trip with Saint James to check out their latest collections, while cruising down the Hudson River. Here you’ll see our sailing attire, life on a beautiful boat, and a sneak peek at FW15 and SS16 from Saint James.

Make sure you SUBSCRIBE to the channel, so you don’t miss a new video every Thursday!

I swung by one of our favorite showrooms this past week and found this green romper in the a.moss racks. It was love at first site. I’m always drawn to anything green (not like mountain dew green, but like olive and emerald… you get it.) Luckily, green hues are on trend for the upcoming season, huzzah! I love the subtle pleats and sheer fabric of this romper. I felt like I should be going to a Christmas party all day… which I kind of loved. Christmas in July… too soon?

What’s easier than a romper? Maybe a dress, and that’s about it. Dresses aren’t the best choice for a sailboat, unless you want to show some serious cheek, so I chose this adorable denim romper. I decided to keep it chic with black accessories like this quilted chain-lined hand bag, and big black square sunnies. Next time I’ll wear some Saint James stripes!

I’ve been working on our St. James YouTube video all morning, so I was feeling the need for some stripes. Sometimes an all striped look, like this striped dress, can be a little intense for me. To tone it down I added this denim jacket with cuffed sleeves. I’m a BIG fan of the bandana trend. This one was actually my dad’s back in the day.

Also, I would like to note the cool “@WanderLustGirls” tag on our rooftop… I wonder who did that? #vandals

This past Friday we set sail with Saint James on a beautiful boat down the Hudson River. We checked out their upcoming collection and even saw a preview for next Spring/Summer. You’ll be able to get a closer look of our whole trip and a sneak peek at the never before seen clothing on our YouTube channel this Thursday!

Sailing for me always makes me think of Americana, so I went for a nautical navy Zara blouse and denim look, classic white Converse sneaks and a bold red lip. After hanging out with all the cute sailor boys and drinking quite a bit of rosé we stumbled off the ship.

Only to have my dreams come true. As I was getting snapped for the above photos, a bunch of puppies ran over to me and hung out, and even helped me take WAY cuter photos. They’re so cute it hurts to look at these pics! Anyways, stay tuned for Thursday’s video :)

Having a new love affair with City Winery NYC. We tested their delicious wine on tap at an event a month ago, and decided to check out the restaurant. We toured through the fermenting wine, the cork covered dining tables, the bottle suspended decor, and the live music outside. Turns out we picked the perfect day, as every Tuesday they have a free concert in the back lot with beer and wine tents. If you’re looking for an escape from the New York City hustle and bustle, this enormous restaurant and winery has something for everyone.

Currently crushing over the way my hair has naturally faded from redhead to strawberry blonde. Look at that flow in the last picture. This blazing heat calls for two things: short shorts, and tied up tee-shirts. I love that these one teaspoon shorts are a little baggy, so I’m not suffocated. We closed out our day at City Winery on Varick and Vandam, learning how little we already knew about wine. We’re not in that area much, but when we are we are absolutely stopping there. Check back for our review on Friday!

95 degrees, feels like 105… no thank you. Luckily after running across all this cobblestone, and snapping a few pics we were able to be inside. Yesterday, we were honored to be guest speakers at Fashion Camp hosted at LIM.

Abigail and I love sharing all the wisdom we’ve acquired in our old age with all the youngins. Aka telling really ridiculous stories like being taxidermy heads in a music video or the joys of dressing soccer players 😉 We basically have story hour every night on Periscope, so make sure you tune in (WanderLust Girls.)

Okay, back to the important stuff. I never expected this romper to be something I would actually wear out. I ordered it from Victoria’s Secret to use at the beach, but I love it! It’s light weight, super comfortable, and I love the loose cutesy fit. I dressed it more like an overalls style with a t-shirt underneath. Converse are good for days where you’re running around. I felt like a little kid in the school yard in todays look. Appropriate for a day back at school!
