Life has been super packed lately, sorry for the lack of posts! In the past month I was hired for a new job at Stitch Fix, had my sister and baby nephew in town, and spent last weekend in New York for my Aunt’s wedding. I’ll be back on track with weekly posts from now on!
Our weekend in NYC went so fast… We red eyed it on Thursday night into JFK, checked into Le Parker Meridien, and took a nap to fight the Jet Lag. Before we knew it, it was time to get ready for our Aunt Lizzie and Uncle Jordan’s rehearsal in Harlem at First Cavalry Baptist Church and rehearsal dinner at La Cremaillere in Bedford, CT. To the rehearsal, I wore a sequin top from Allsaints (similar), an Allsaints leather jacket (similar), vintage Pierre Cardin palazzo pants (similar) and my nude Louboutin peep toes. That was day 1.
Here are pics of my rehearsal dinner outfit and the amazing lobby/ bar at Le Parker Meridien.
The next morning, I woke up early to get my hair done at Drybar, which was conveniently located in the basement of our hotel. Then I headed upstairs to get ready for the wedding. I wore an art deco dress by Le Luxe, heels by Jeffrey Campbell and a wrap by Ralph Lauren. The ceremony was touching and personal, with great music and energy. Then we headed off to Cecil in Harlem for a gorgeous reception where we had amazing food and danced the night away.

On Sunday, we woke up for a wedding brunch at Landmarc, Columbus Circle. We stayed till the end, rehashing with our loved ones about the awesome wedding the night before. Then we jumped into an Uber to Brooklyn for a visit with my sister, brother in law, and our adorable nephew. They brought us to a lovely Sunday potluck at a friends place down the street. We ended the night up on the roof watching the sunset over Manhattan. Finally, back at their flat and to bed for our 6:30 am flight back to Oakland. This weekend was full of family, friends and love, and reminded Roger and I of how lucky we are to have so many gorgeous, talented, smart and caring people in our lives.
Sunday Brooklyn Vibes…
