Last night, we hung out on the newly renovated, Empire Hotel Rooftop. I stumbled upon the hotel entrance after 12 blocks in stiff heels, and not one more step to give. A friend had mentioned it, I saw it, walked in, and loved the vibe immediately. A great place for cocktails with the girls, date night and the bites were good too.
I have been slowly collecting a lot of earth tone pieces in grey, mauve and beige. Keeping with solids gives me so much more variety in my wardrobe. I recently did a massive detox of my closet (blog post to come), so I am down to the bare essentials. I love being able to mix and match, and a bevy of neutral pieces allow me to quickly pull an outfit together in the morning! I am out of the house the majority of the day, so with one eye open and a half eaten banana in my hand, I need the easiest, most basic styling. I also am a fan of pairing menswear inspired separates with sexier clothing. This Rag and Bone blazer is fitted to be oversized and structured, so it balanced out the tight, lace up top.
It was great to get out with hubs, talk shop, compare notes on what we love about New York and miss about Tokyo. Now we have a new spot to add to our little, but growing, places we love in the neighborhood.
