While I was not about to drop 150 bones on this unique piece of curbside finery, I did find the (vintage?) bed frame in the background awkwardly charming. Much like the Lower East Side itself, actually…worn in but in the way you’d want it to be. It’s slight grunginess making it all the more appealing. It didn’t take me long to fall in love with the neighborhood.

Blake and I snapped these quick photos en route to our favorite new downtown restaurant, Sauce. After our second time in a one week span, I can say from experience that it’s better for lunch than dinner – though both offer delicious options. A quaint little must-try, and it makes for excellent people watching, to boot!

As I mentioned here, I am now diving in to a long weekend of Miami Swim Week festivities with Socialyte.co, The Bal Harbour Shops and Pour La Victoire. It’ll be my first time visiting the balmy beach town, and oh, let me tell you, this girl’s ready to party in the city where the…you know the rest.

    gorgeous look; love that skirt with the zipper detailing. Makes me a little sad I left behind a similar killer skirt that I was concerned would be too short. This so works!

    Really like this look. Sometimes it’s hard finding just the right pairing for a crop top. The lower east side is one of my favorite Manhattan neighborhoods but I’ve never been to Sauce. I’ll put in on my list for my next visit in September.

    Cheers,

    Thanks, Nic!! I totally know what you mean with the crop top thing – I feel like it only works for me if I am wearing something with a very hight waist. Def try out Sauce in September, you won’t regret it! x
