New York, New York - Part 1


I have some serious baggage under my eyes.
The mini trip to NY was crazy in more ways than one. The travel part was rough. Due to cancelled and delayed flights I missed Tuesday night. However, Wednesday made up for it. It was a whirlwind jam- packed with amazing moments. I will recap IFB fun in another post. 

Part of my excuse for visiting NYC was to see this girl....

Meet Liza, my best friend from college. I got to end the nights catching up with her.
She knows the ins and outs of the city, and can kindly remind me that you don't call a cab, you hunt one down...

What would I do without her?


Due to the fact that it started to pour, my hair decided to make its own decisions. Frizz was on the menu as well as my usual top knot. Oh well. I will share with you some of the girls who were more fortunate and had some seriously fab up-dos. (Coming soon)

{Top: Francesca's (similar also here or here), Necklace: c/o LYIF (sold out), Coated Jeans: H&M, Watch: Aldo, Bracelet: c/o Loren Hope, Cuff: Bellafusion, Shoes: Zara (similar), Tote: ASOS (similar)}

(Photos thanks to my beautiful friend Hilary)
Cobblestone streets make every outfit post more interesting, no? 
I swore I would never wear peplum. NY makes you do things you never thought possible;)

(Naomi, Natalie, and I)

A highlight of my trip was getting to have coffee with these mamas. (We missed you Sydney!)
I felt like I met some soul sisters that night. They are so down to earth, funny, positive, and inspiring. It was an easy 3 hours of chatting about life, motherhood, and blogging (of course). It was the spirit lifter I needed. Now if only they could live in the same city... ;)

So happy to be home with my babes. I can't stand being apart from them. So thankful for Gabe, who supported and encouraged this trip. 

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead! 
Love, Anna

  11. That peplum top is just lovely on you Anna! And I'm envious of your ability to be able to walk on the cobblestone in heels. You did visit NYC on an especially humid week but you managed to fight it well.

    Have a fab weekend!
