out and about

If you follow me on instagram, I apologize in advance for the repeat photographs. But for those of you who don’t, I thought I’d share a few things I’ve been up to recently!

Over the weekend we had the most amazing weather here in NYC so I recruited a friend and strolled around my old neighborhood. A lot of the shops have changed but so many of my favorites are still there! We stopped into John Derian where I can never leave without at least one of my favorite decoupaged goodies (I have a serious problem). We also popped into Love, Adorned where I spied these sweet little jars of green-tipped matches and Haus – I thought the letterpressed calling cards they had for sale (bottom middle) were cheeky and fun!

I also spent a bit of time on the Upper East Side with Evan where I absolutely had to show him around one of my newest favorites, Creel & Gow. The shop is a veritable cabinet of curiosities and while he’s not the biggest fan of taxidermy, there’s no denying that this zebra is kind of amazing… I also ditched Evan to head over to Monique Lhuillier (where I bought my wedding dress) to shop for accessories like my veil and a few jeweled hair pins for the big day. I can’t wait until I can finally reveal the whole ensemble to you guys!

Finally, I flipped through a few of my favorite tomes during some downtime and discovered these fantastic Richard Avedon portraits of The Beatles (top middle) in my copy of Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel and this gorgeous swirly S in an old calligraphy book of my mother’s. Of course I also did some bookshelf rearranging – what would the weekend be without a little zhushing?

What did you do this weekend? And are you still lounging at home today? I’m off to work but do share your adventures so I can catch up on them when I get home!
