I first discovered The Smile on a hot summer day 4 years ago.  I was instantly drawn in by the unassuming charm and coziness of the restaurant.  The fire place and open kitchen make you feel right at home.  Their homemade cheddar dill biscuits are some of the best I’ve ever had and sell out every morning (worth getting up early for!)  The restaurant is located on Bond Street; a quiet, cobblestone street in the heart of NoHo.  If you’re visiting the city – it’s a great street to head to because it’s surrounded by some of my favorite shops and restaurants (Gemma, Lafayette, and BondST.)  I wore this easy white dress to lunch at The Smile last week.  I typically wear flats to lunch but was coming from a meeting so I threw on my Aquazzura block sandals.  Aquazzura heels are surprisingly comfortable which is why I continue investing in them.  I have my eye on these next…

Nordstrom Sale Pt. 3

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Sweater // Scarf // Coat // Sunnies
Perfume // Lipgloss // Hoops // Necklace
Grey boots // Camel boots // Black boots // Tan boots

The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is finally open to the public – wahoooo!  I stocked up on my favorite Hanky Panky’s that never go on sale, upgraded my down comforter, and splurged on this beyond dreamy suede jacket.  It’s hard to think about wearing fall/winter clothing in this summer heat, but I promise this cashmere cowl neck sweater will be a staple in your wardrobe, as will these chic wide leg navy pants, this tweed coat, and these suede boots.  The beauty selection included in the sale is seriously too good….I had to get this YSL lipgloss set, this Laura Mercier touch up kit, a mini Clarisonic, and this yummy vanilla blackberry perfume.  What have you scored so far?  Do tell!  You can shop my other sale picks here and here.

Happy Friday!  Talun and I shot these pictures after a yummy rosé filled lunch at Navy Beach.  I love that the restaurant is literally right on the beach – the lounge chairs and picnic tables are nestled in the sand making it the ideal spot to relax and unwind.  I wore this flowy blue Zimmerman dress that I picked up from a charming boutique in Nolita the other week.  Nolita is full of one of a kind shops and vintage stores.  It’s become one of my favorite neighborhoods in the city and I almost considered moving into an apartment there this summer.  Ruby’s has become my go-to lunch spot and the Elizabeth Street Garden around the corner is a welcome haven in the midst of the bustling city.  If you haven’t been able to shop the Nordstrom sale yet – you can finally do it TODAY.  Grab these suede boots, this cashmere sweater and this lipgloss set.  Oh and this smokey eye palette too!  Enjoy your weekend!
