weekend recap.

A weekend at home felt oh so nice. I was lucky to get to spend Friday night & all day Saturday with Richard before he had to go on call yesterday. Friday we met up with friends for drinks & had a low key evening. Top by theory here & shorts by Zara here.


Saturday morning we finished House of Cards Season 2 {wow!!! if you haven’t watched this Netflix series — you should} & then headed to Elysian Cafe for brunch.

To be honest, the ambiance of this place was better than the food. I loved all the bistro chairs & the very relaxed atmosphere – it felt very French, indeed. The food wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t anything to write home about. Perhaps we will try it again for dinner? Regardless, the drinks were fab!



We then geared up for a picnic in Central Park. Fresh mozzarella heaven.


An absolutely gorgeous day in NYC.






Even though I no longer have a wedding to plan, I still love looking at wedding mags 🙂 Maybe even more so than when I was actually planning! Sunglasses from Warby Parker — mine are called the Piper. Find them here.


Sunflower romper from Asos Marketplace here — shop the vintage shop paper heart with lots of cute & affordable pieces here.



Sunday Richard was on call but I went into the city again to meet up with some friends for brunch at Hotel Chantelle.

This place was really great! Lots of fun people watching, great food, atmosphere, drinks & company. I would definitely recommend it.


All the tables had pretty dried flowers under the glass. I adore little details.


I actually didn’t take that many photos {I know, crazy right?!} but can’t wait to go back {photo cred below here}


We went to one other bar at the Thomson Hotel roof before I headed back home that was really cute — it had tons of board games to play. Beers & board games = happy Sunday in my book!


& finally some new reading material from my momma to prep for our trip in under a month! Such a cute cover — find it here.


Sunday night was spent continuing to freak out about one of my best friends getting ENGAGED! So much happiness up in hurr. Looking forward to getting my hubby back tonight 🙂 Have a great week xx
