 Cool Summer(Pictured above: the incredible authentic Greek food at Taverna Kyclades in Astoria)

I have a love/hate relationship with Summer in NYC.  On one hand, I love the blooming flowers, the longer sunny days, and dining outside in the evenings.  But, NYC is also well known for it’s suffocating humidity.  Thankfully, we have been experiencing a milder Summer so far, and some days have even been cool.  On one of these cooler days, I met my best friend Debbie for lunch at Taverna Kyclades in Astoria. This Greek heaven usually  has a line down the block, with people waiting for at least an hour on average to get in on busy nights.   They don’t take reservations, and they don’t have to.  It’s simply the best, most authentic Greek food in Astoria.  They are also known for their extremely fresh fish, with the selection changing daily. If you’re in the Astoria, NYC area, definitely stop by!

I like cooler summer days. It gave me an excuse to wear my beige Theory coat. The color is perfect for Spring/Summer, and it’s just the perfect weight. Details on everything below!

XOXOXO
Julie

White Fall Dress….two ways

I bought this gorgeous beaded white dress from Zara, and I was planning on rocking it for Fall with thick tights. This pleasant weather,however, allowed me to wear the dress bare legged with my Rag & Bone boots. I couldn’t decide what coat to wear with it, so I decided to try out two different looks. First, I paired the dress with this incredible leopard coat I got from Nordstrom! What a great buy! It’s waterproof and super warm!  A leopard coat is a staple every girl should have in her closet, and at this price, it’s worth it!  Second, I tried it on with the sweater I bought at the Margiella for H&M preview I attended two weeks ago. (I love how designers are making their lines more affordable for the general public by doing collaborations!)  I love the look of white on white as well. What was that rule about white after Labor Day? Yea….right…..so 10 years ago! LOL  BTW, I am loving my Pamela Love medium tribal spike necklace! (Last seen HERE). It’s bold, unique, and makes any outfit more special!
