Long time no blog post! I'm finally back from my trip to New Jersey/New York. Overall, it was so much fun and I feel like I was more relaxed this time around since I had no official business and was able to enjoy the events I attended. But...let's just start at the beginning shall we?
I left CA early Thursday morning. Getting to NJ was pretty rough: First my flight was delayed 1.5 hours; then I also got Mother Nature's monthly gift while at the airport; and during the actual plane ride, there was a bit of turbulence that made me throw up. But once I landed, I figured the trip couldn't get any worse now that I was about to be reunited with Jen. We met at the train station and rushed back to her place to get ready for FNO. That will probably be my last FNO (at least in NYC). It was just so crowded and we got there too late to go to any events. At least I got a NYC hot dog that night. I will rewear my outfit from that night another time.
This outfit is from Friday--my first full day on the east coast. It took us a while to get to the city that day just because we were so exhausted from the night before, but we got there in time for a bit of thrifting and photo taking before the Modswap event later that night. This new tote bag from Madewell and these Gap city flats were definitely my life savers during the trip. The tote bag was definitely a splurge for me, but I figured it's high time I start investing in better quality pieces, especially handbags. The flats are so comfortable and I finally have my perfect pair of red flats to add my favorite pop of color to any outfit! Chloe and I swapped some clothes a while ago. I am in love with this dress and will be so sad when I have to return it. I can't wait to get in a few outfits with it before I have to give it back.
Stay tuned to see how I turned this into an evening look to wear to the Modswap.
Until next post,
