NYC!! Stopped for a quick bite at Pietro Nolita in NoHo. All of the decor inside is pink, hence the napkin 😉 When we put our name down for a table, they said it would take an hour to seat three people for lunch, so my cousins and I decided to shop around the area in the meantime. My uncle graciously agreed to wait at the resto so we could wander around, but we got the call after just FIFTEEN minutes… Food was decent (more like meh), but the overall setup and decor were adorable. Go for a quick pic outside on pink bench, but wouldn’t recommend eating there. 

Simple OOTD for an action-packed day in NYC. Didn’t try very hard here but ended up looking a bit thematic nevertheless! Can’t get any easier than a black top and denim shorts. It’s all in the details though – the layered necklaces, dainty button detail on the back of the top, and scattered grommets on the denim shorts all add to the look, making fashion-inclined people park their eyes on you for a quick analytic stare 😉 What pulls this look together are the trendy pink sunglasses and mint-colored phone case, really accentuating the retro theme 🙂

Shopped for hours at small boutiques and stores until we made our way to an ice cream place called Taiyaki NYC. You MUST go here if you are in the area. See Instagram for proof here
