Shirt and heels, Banana Republic. Jeans, Target. Bag, Dune London. Aviators, Ray-Ban. Watch, Daniel Wellington.
Deal alert: I just picked up these jeans from Target for $19. If you’re a New Yorker, the Target in Brooklyn near the Barclay’s Center is giving you a $10 off coupon if you try on the denim in store. Mind blown. I’m sure they have this deal in other locations as well! They feel like expensive denim, and they look like expensive denim. If you’re on the hunt for some new jeans, check out your local Target denim selection. It’s like thrift store prices, but no one else has worn them. Winning.
Not that I am going back to school, but I’ve been seeing commercials everywhere for “back to school shopping.” This is basically all I miss from school… buying a fresh new notebook, bags of new clothes, a brand new backpack! I’m getting myself too excited. If only I knew what I know now back when I was studying.
So, in ode to back to school, I put together this look that would be perfect for the first day! I got this suede skirt in Barcelona. It’s a great material to bring you into Fall. I kept the rest of the look simple, and brought some black around my face, so that I wouldn’t feel too out of character. I have to ease color into my wardrobe otherwise it’s a bit traumatizing.
This leather backpack is so cool. Maybe even too cool for me to own? Don’t answer that…
“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.
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?
Romper, Margret. Flats, Marc Fisher. Bag, Zara. Belt, Helmut Lang.
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.
Okay, so Abigail and I have been joking about wanting to make a parody of the Limp Bizkit song Break Stuff for so long now. We figured it was time. We hope you enjoy and can laugh at us actin’ a fool here in Key Foods. Don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE to our channel for a new video everything Thursday
