Taking the most spontaneous days off from work to catch the last few glimpses of summer is becoming an unnecessary habit of mine. But, then again, who can resist random outings to taste that 5-star Soho caipirinha that everyone's raving about, or testing out Intelligentsia, which apparently is the "best coffee imaginable", or even the special tres leche donut from Doughnut Plant that puts all other mundane flavors to shame...and how about Amy's Bread? By the way, if you haven't tried their black olive twist, you're truly missing out. I can ramble endlessly here when it comes to all my recent taste-testings. And adding to more frivolous distractions, I'm starting to rediscover varied "treasure troves" (local shops, parks and quintessential whip-out-your-book-or-ipad benches) situated throughout New York City and deriving a much deeper appreciation of my surroundings. Thankfully, the nature of my work has pretty much made me rethink just how fascinating this city can be.
Now on to these new pics. Here I'm sporting a couple recent acquisitions that have made it to the closet staple category. In the search for the perfect fitted stripe top, I stumbled upon this American Apparel bodysuit during my daily online browsing/shopping trances. It's simple and stays put, plus the scooped back gives that extra something, which can be described in so many pretty words. Also, I've added this Elizabeth & James-inspired knuckle armor ring courtesy of Modtoast. I don't know why I waited so long, but this is certainly the "staple" ring to own. That, along with her cage hinge ring - they refuse to come off my fingers. Once again, Thank You So Much!
