Closet Confection: American Woman







{Zara Top & Skirt, Michael Kors Penelope Boots via Loehmann’s (similar here and here) & Handbag via TJ Maxx, Similar Necklace, Forever 21 Sunglasses, Bulova 96R19 Watch, Henri Bendel & Vintage Bracelets}

Leave it to me to find the perfect 4th of July outfit more than 3.5 months late!  Oh well, it’s never too late to show your patriotism.

After having brunch at Rue 57, one of my favorite spots for blueberry pancakes, I decided to take a nice stroll through Central Park and snap a few pics.  Of course, within 5 minutes the “secluded” spot we’d chosen became the most popular photo location ever.  Or perhaps taking photos on rocks is just all the rage now.  Sometimes I feel kind of bad for tourists who catch me taking outfit photos and somehow think that the spot must be some famous landmark.  I almost want to shout “No, no, no! This is just a regular old alley, nothing historic and/or interesting about it at all. I’m just a crazy lady who likes to takes pictures of herself.”  But then that might be weird…

      Arrrgh! That’s one of my pet peeves: seeing tourists eat at chain restaurants in NYC. There are soooo many great (and inexpensive) restaurants in the city that it’s almost criminal to eat at Red Lobster (except for the cheddar bay biscuits, lol)!
