Hello from New York! You’re going to love this look.

Last week Ashley Brooke and I had the opportunity to jet off to New York for a blog conference. In all honesty, it was just the perfect excuse to visit New York and more specifically Teresa from Money Can Buy Lipstick. We met her a couple years ago and became instant BFFS. You know when you meet someone and you instantly feel like sisters? That’s how we felt about Teresa, so we decided to adopt her into our (dysfunctional) little family. If you’re curious about the kind of friend Teresa is, let’s just say she graciously gave up her bed for the week and slept on the couch! She also got us coffee every morning, so let’s just say we hit the friendship jackpot. She just so happens to live in the Big Apple, so when we were invited to the Fohr U Conference we couldn’t say no! I decided to stay the week to explore the city and spend some time with my gal pals. Teresa showed us around and helped us navigate the subway/trains and populated streets of Manhattan (ya girl wasn’t as prepared and wore booties with heels…). We snapped a few pictures in front of the gorgeous New York Public Library! Any library with two marble lions in front (named Patience and Fortitude – yeah I Googled that) has my stamp of approval.
Now, let’s talk fashion. Can we talk about these dark wash high waisted jeans!? I don’t believe in stiff jeans (burn them at the stake!) so when I tried on these puppies they instantly melted into my skin. They’re made with 43% viscose, 27% cotton, 14% modal, 14% polyester, 2% elastane and SUPER stretchy (but maintain their shape). So it was love at first sight. I can’t speak highly enough of these jeans and have this pair on my wish list. I paired them with this oversized stripped high low shirt this oversized high low top, black booties (yes, they were unzipped in some of the pictures..oops!), this wrap choker and my newest splurge – the pink blush beauty! Every once in a while a girl has to treat herself.. right?!
