I'll Take Manhattan

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

The Mr. is dying to move to the country. He would like nothing more than to live in a Tudor style manor tucked away on acres of wilderness.

Me? I'm a city girl. Raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles, I packed my suitcases for the unknown, gritty wild world of Manhattan. More than a decade later, I'm still in love with this town. This summer was no exception to the rule: with fun weeknights spent in the company of friends, weekends spent lazing about. Here are some pictures from the last days (and nights) of summer...

Summer means getting lazy with the outfit posts. But I've been trying to do a quick one some mornings on Twitter. Left: Doo.Ri pre-fall astral print tunic, ASOS harem pants and no name suede sandals; Right: Limi Feu white tunic with cut-out shoulders over a tank dress from American Apparel paired with espadrilles from Barcelona

Scenes from a pre-renovation tour of Lord and Taylor cosmetics departments. Left: Christine from MyStylePill and Virginia from TheLovely20s!

Yours truly after a little touchup from a makeup artist at Laura Mercier. That illuminating moisturizer is a MIRACLE. I am glowing!

Carly from A Girl and Her Blog and I spent an afternoon enjoying a Sex and the City bus tour. Yes it was campy, and yes it was fun. You're jealous. Come on :)

Some bloggers and I enjoyed a lovely sunset cruise sponsored by Nautica. Male models, champagne cocktails and catching up with old friends... We're so fortunate to live in this gorgeous city sometimes.

Amy from Midtown Girl and Yuli from MyItThings- my favorite pair of divas!

The Mr? He can take up residence at our future weekend home in the country.

I'll take Manhattan. I'll take Manhattan.

hahah I'm with you on that one! The city is just so much more fun. Countries are for vacations, but cities are for living.

I'm still oohing over your hair!

This post reminds me of a line from Sex and the City, "You can take the girl out of Manhattan, but you can't take Manhattan out of the girl".. in regards to Miranda moving to Brooklyn, I believe haha

I love the Doo.Ri printed tunic, reminds me of tie-dye. And the cutouts on that Limi Feu tunic are awesome.

I use that illuminating moisturizer every day, I love it. Definitely a good buy.

And I must say, your new haircut is very becoming on you!

Teehee this divide over city vs. country reminds me of Carrie and Aidan on SATC! I'm definitely a city girl myself.
