Brooklyn Vibes.

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I have been having a ball in Greenpoint, Brooklyn meeting my 2 week old nephew Wesley for the first time and hanging with my family.  My sister Sara and her husband Steffen moved to Brooklyn way before it blew up with stores and restaurants as people made the mass exodus from Manhattan to the BK.  They have had this amazing warehouse space for years that Steffen gutted and built into an amazing 3 bedroom place, and with his and my sister’s interior design skills, it has turned out organic and beautiful. They are a huge design inspiration to me for our house!  I always love to come for a visit, especially when there is a little baby nugget to hold.  It was also really fun to walk around and photograph Greenpoint streets, the old brick buildings and graffiti are right up my alley.

We stayed at The Box House Hotel which has super cool decor, antique taxi cabs for a car service and full kitchens in the room in case you want to have a relaxing night in the room.  Everything is super walkable, so getting groceries, or picking up takeout is super easy.

Of course I did an impromptu photo shoot (photo cred to my Mom) to show at least one outfit I wore on the trip. The first day was not super cold yet, so I wore my J Crew denim button down, Anthropologie sequin joggers (on sale now!), Charlotte Russe Booties, an Allsaints beanie (similar), Giorgio Armani lipstick and a Celine bag.  It was laid back, but still luxe at the same time.

My three favorite meals were the pastries and coffee at Bakeri, the sage egg panini (and everything else) at Five Leaves and the “Hellboy” pizza from Pauly Gee’s.  All of these places have their own unique vibe and amazing food.  I am such a foodie, so Greenpoint is heaven for me!
