City Outfits: Visiting Sézane L'Appartement in New York City

Over the weekend, my family and I stayed overnight in New York City. It was so much fun! We had a great hotel located in the center of Midtown Manhattan and we stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn and Suites. Our view of the Empire State Building was spectacular.

The first day we explored the city and ended up heading downtown to the Sézane L'Appartement. I've seen this spot pop up on my Instagram feed for the past few months and knew I couldn't miss out on my chance to see the floral apartment for myself.

It was simply a Subway ride on the F train away and a few blocks down the street until we finally hit the apartment display. A must-have for the city? Walking shoes! If you are looking for a cute photo opp in the city, I highly recommend checking out this beautiful area because it's the perfect summer location to shoot some Instagram photos with friends, too!

For my daytime look out to Elizabeth Street, I wore a Forever 21 Ditzy Floral Dress and a fun pair of fringe sandals from Dolce Vita. In the city comfort is key, but I also needed to plan ahead for upcoming photos for the blog. This dress was also hanging up in my closet waiting to be worn out! It's priced right at $22 from Forever 21, so it's definitely a great buy. Surprisingly enough these slides from Dolce Vita were also pretty comfortable, even though I was spending the day breaking them in! The fun fringe detail on the top of these slides makes them adorable and easy for packing this summer.

How to Style Floral Culottes + $850 Nordstrom Giveaway!

Hi, friends! Hope you all had an amazing weekend.

Let's kick this Monday off with a BANG! (and a super fun giveaway!) 
Keep reading until you find the directions to enter to win an $850 Nordstrom Gift Card.

I had a bit of a clean-out sesh in my room this past weekend. There's nothing like going through everything you own and sorting things out from one area to the next. It really gives me a sense of peace when I dig up old things I forgot about because of my disorganization! Cleaning up my room has been a long time coming because I've been busy these past few weeks. From shooting new content to working on pieces for HSN, it's been quite an eventful couple of weeks. 

Of course, I have to blast an upbeat Spotify playlist while I clean. One of my favorite playlists to listen to is called "Digging Now" where they compile a bunch of Indie Pop tunes that I love already with a mix of new bands I'm unfamiliar with. It's a great way to introduce new music into my life and since I have Spotify premium, I can skip the songs I don't like in a split second. 

A few other highlights of my weekend:
+ I tried the new Mango Dragonfruit Starbucks Refresher: my opinion? It's delishhhh!

+I've continued to wash my hair and immediately spray 10 pumps of the Kristin Ess Weightless Shine Leave-In Conditioner.
For $10.00, you will notice healthier feeling hair even after just one use. I've loved it SO much that I simply spray it after each time I wash my hair! It never feels too heavy in my hair which can happen when products built-up over time. I can usually go about three days with this leave-in conditioner in my hair until I feel the need to wash my hair again. It's a must-try!!!

+I discovered the BEST vegan muffins on the planet. I've already gone out to Lucky's Market to repurchase these chocolate chip muffins twice. Abe's Muffins are tasty treats that do NOT remind me of anything remotely similar to the off-tasting vegan muffins that I'm used to eating. There are nine (!!) different flavors for you to choose from, but go with the classic chocolate chip muffins first. 

Let's talk about this outfit, shall we? Floral culottes are such a cute pair of statement pants for summer. These wide leg pants are perfectly paired with a simple black ruffle crop top from Forever 21, marked at a reasonable $15.90. 

Complete with slanted inset pockets, these soft floral pants are modest and comfortable for any summer activity. The floral pants I have on sit normally at the waist, too. The relaxed and flowy culotte trousers will be your next favorite fashion trend.
