A few of my favorite things? Oversized earrings, anything pink, and Washington Sq Park! (it's the best place to hang out in the warm months, and pet people's dogs year-round) Plus, with Fashion Week kicking off, there were tons of bloggers, both native and those who flew in for the week, taking shots all around this neighborhood!Read More
No, I didn't get married, although this spot is where tons of young lovers in the city come to get married and snap a few pictures in this gorgeous little park. The fact that it had just stopped raining a few hours prior to this made the pavement of the park glitter, and the early morning light made everything in the city seem fresh and hopeful.
I finally pulled this skirt out of the back of my closet. I made it about two years ago to wear on Christmas, and this is only its second time seeing the light of day (I need to pull it out more often!) I love pairing this dramatic and slightly formal skirt with a roughed up and casual denim button down. Adding a pair of glittering earrings just pulls everything together, and the block heeled ankle boot keeps it from getting too prissy.Read More
Eating vegetarian has never tasted so good. The Butchers Daughter has a way of making fruits, veggies the main course instead of side dishes, and their protein of choice, eggs, are to die for! They have two locations in NYC (Nolita and West Village) and one in LA. Like most chic NYC spots, menus vary from location to location, and Nolita has always been my favorite (for both the food and the area!)Read More
New Yorkers may be cold and calloused, but our wildlife sure is friendly, or... at least our squirrels are. While shooting down in City Hall Park this morning (a very underrated NYC park) a pack of squirrels came and said hello, and I made friends with one little bushy-tailed fella in particular!
For this bright city morning I pulled out one of my favorite new pieces, this off the shoulder number from J.Crew, proving that you can still do cold-shoulder looks in 40 degree weather. With it, I paired my trusty white bandana and a few sparkly bits that came in this month's Rocksbox (use code AudraKochXOXO for a free month!) And you can't go wrong with a dark wash denim and black heeled booties (I'm surprised that neither of these have fallen to pieces yet!)Read More
One of Soho's chicest cafes, this place is packed from open to close with the most fashionable crowd in Manhattan. Besides the people watching, and the gorgeous atmosphere, the food here will blow your mind. Owners Dean and Maya immigrated from South Africa and Israel respectively, and NY Mag accurately describes the menu as "South African Israeli Jewish Grandmother Cuisine" with fried zucchini in smoked-paprika aioli, tomatillo shakshuka (my favorite), and a rosewater waffle with Lebanese yogurt that can cure any rough morning. (or afternoon, or night....)Read More
Good morning, lovelies! Long-time-no-see! I've been swamped between homework and work these past two weeks, but I should be back to my normal blogging schedule soon. However, I did manage to pop down to Brooklyn Heights during a crisp foggy morning, and after shooting with David, hung out for a bit and sipped coffee while reading and people-watching, with a gorgeous view of the Manhattan skyline (aka my ideal morning).Read More
I am so excited to finally share this shoot we did down in the Meatpacking district with this gorgeous Tim Ryan jacket! On my last day at my internship, they were so kind to let me pick something from their stock closet, and I knew I needed this beautiful gem in my life. It's simultaneously dramatic and understated, and looks perfect with jeans and a tee or a simple dress.Read More
we've had a bit of a cold front in the city, and I was able to give this fur vest one last outing before spring/summer! I stuck to classic New York black, but added a little spring flair with this gorgeous orange lipstick by Kat Von D! I highly recommend these, they are amazing!Read More
Today I decided to pair these (amazing) J.Crew Ryder pants with a classic chambray button down, J.Crew Factory Cora tassel loafers, a Kendra Scott Rayne necklace, and Sophie Harper pave ring (both of which came in my Rocksbox! You can get a month free with my code! Read the post HERE!) But what I was MOST excited for, was to take my new Loeffler Randall Saffiano Rider bag out for it's first spin! I happened upon it while scouring a Rent The Runway sample sale, and I couldn't leave without it! It was between that and a Kate Spade dress. Believe me, the decision was almost impossible.Read More
I'm so excited to share this very pastel look with y'all today! I didn't even realize it, but I'm definitely tapping into this year's Pantone colors, with Rose Quartz hair, a Serenity blue skirt, and a Lilac Grey top! Well I snagged this skirt for crazy cheap on the clearance rack at LOFT, and I'm obsessed with how classic and feminine it is!Read More
Good morning, Lovelies! I've decided to start a new kind of weekly post here on SNY that's a little more personal/lifestyle/diary-like! I'm taking inspiration from Kelly Prince Writes (one of my favorite blogs) and I'll be doing a post every Sunday morning just about my past week, and about the week ahead!Read More
