Similar to my last post, I have had a little love affair with stripes as of late and I don’t think they’re going anywhere soon, at least not for me. Last week we had a heatwave come through New York which quickly left us, but it was nice to bounce from Summer clothes and back into Spring (borderline Winter) clothes. I found this simple black slip dress at Aritzia and it’s great for layering over or under any outfit. I have been on the hunt for a striped jacket for months. I had initially been looking for a striped rain coat and still have not found one similar to what I am envisioning, but until then this silky striped jacket/kimono will fill those shoes.
I also wanted to mention one of my favorite New York hidden garden bars called Gilligan’s in the back of the Soho Grand. It’s literally an Instagramers dream with the decor. I would love to go there when it’s empty just to showcase how beautiful it is. They make delicious slushy watermelon margaritas which are their signature as well as their rosé on tap which are a must try. You wouldn’t necessarily spot it from the streets so I never discovered it until a couple years ago- definitely worth checking out if you’re visiting or live in the city and haven’t tried it yet.
