a Taylored Approach
I have a confession and it's probably pretty obvious from my last post... I love millennial pink.
I've been super into this hue lately and I seem to find myself stumbling upon it everywhere... pink doors (ok you caught me, I'm actively looking for those), office supplies, restaurant tables; you name it, I'm drawn to it. This obsession feels appropriate for summer and I can't stay away. I'm currently eyeing this letter board which has no business fitting in my studio apartment so I am flirting with the idea of displaying her on my desk @ Gap HQ. The fun will be changing out the letters for a slogan of the week. This week's lettered motto is a tough choice; Get Shit Done or Rose Me Please.
When I found out I would be traveling to New York for work, I instantly knew I had to take advantage of this adorable gem on Elizabeth Street. It was the perfect start to a quick 24 hours with one of my besties who recently traded her SF zip code for that of the Upper West Side. It was easy to convince her to stop by this pink heaven for a quick bev before our dinner reservations at ABC Kitchen.
Pietro Nolita is Barbie's dream house in adult life. And you guessed it, if I could live in this miniature pink heaven, I totally would. I admit I cheated on Leo's Oyster Bar but I've allowed myself to have a few bicoastal loves. Shhh, don't tell my palm print boyfriend. The petite staircase at Pietro takes you into this bite size pink palace, where everything is covered in this happy shade and even better, the motto, (mom, excuse my language), Pink as Fuck is pure genius. According to Pietro, who we ended up meeting outside as we were leaving, that slogan is all the rage in Italy. I haven't been but I am determined to find out if this is true. Naturally, I had to steal some of the napkins to add to my bar cart.
I was feeling pretty in pink after a long week of visiting stores from Manhattan to Harlem to Queen's, so was thrilled when it was go time choosing an outfit, I decided to don a floral Top Shop blouse with my favorite Madewell ripped skinnies. These have become painted on my bod lately as they are oh so comfy and make me feel like I am 5'7, which for most of you that know me, is a very funny dream. I blend in so nicely don't you think! I threw on my favorite Vanessa Mooney choker and my recent Alexander Wang studded splurge. I was ready to roll in that millennial pink madness.
Hope the start of your summer is filled with something just as cheeky to offset those sometimes long days at the office. I'm off for a Marina jaunt. Cue the song which my NYC gal has deemed the #songofthesummer. That Carly Rae and Cut to the Feeling... you put a spring in my step.
Until next time,
TC & my approach
