Where has the summer gone!? I can't believe it's the end of July.  I'm currently waiting for my sushi dinner, having a glass of wine, and going through my pictures from July. Fun times these past few weeks. I kind of disappeared from this online space... just needing a break ya know? But I've had too many good times this last month to not share these mems. Pictured above: Ali (and Tor!!!) hosted a Friday night rooftop soiree with tons of food, music, wine, and just overall great people. As you know rooftops keep me sane.

Aperol stopped by my office with spritzs and apps last Friday. Plus the chance to win Illesteva sunglasses if you posted on IG ;) Don't think I won though..... le sigh.

Our Romper x Uncrustables event in Dumbo! Have you checked out yet? Did you know we (Bustle) have a sister site? #YAYFUN

While this life in the city looks like all fun and games, sometimes I just need to escape. And escaping includes dining at Focacceria with my parents and a weekend at the Forest Lake Club

This picture is a little gnarly but I finally tried Katz's Deli! I seriously live 2 mintues away from Katz so this was way over due. Also, is it just me or is Katz's a little overrated? I wasn't super impressed.

Welcome to the best part of this month: COLDPLAY. You guys. I cannot even begin to explain how incredible Coldplay was. Buy tickets. Pay hundreds. Do what you have to do. Just go see them.

How did you celebrate #NationalHotdogDay? Crif Dog saves lives.

Our BGoG (big group of girls) went to the Yankee Game last Tuesday. Love a Yankee Game plus all the good food that comes with it (see ya never summer diet).

July Times Fly

Back back back back to reality.

I extended my Fourth of July holiday a few extra days. It was the most relaxing weekend with family and friends at the FLC. Almost every night was spent down by the lake at a picnic, with tons of food, lots of wine, some tequila, and good company. Getting out of the city for a long weekend is the best. Plus going back to work for a two day week is pretty nice. Hope you had an awesome holiday and your week hasn't been too bad either. :)

Happy July 1st! Officially in the full swing of summer. 

My necessary summer staples in no particular order: lace up dresses, rompers, off-the-shoulder tops, crochet knits. These items I pulled together are all from the online retailer Tobi. I wasn’t familiar with Tobi until they reached out to me but their clothes are so fun and affordable. I’m typically picky with blog partnerships so I’m being honest when I say that I’m impressed with both the clothing and price points on Tobi. I own this denim shift dress, this black romper, and this striped romper. The black romper is probably my favorite, because, hi it’s black.

Also fun fact: new customers receive 50% off their first order on! Love a good 50% off discount.
