 Over the weekend I went to Hundred Acres with friends. It’s one of my favorite NYC brunch spots. I wore this Phillips dress, it’s a super light dress, perfect for summer. My bag is super a pretty taupe color that goes with everything because it’s neutral. I took advantage of Sunday and wore these suede boots to brunch because it was a sunny and warm day. The warmest we’ve had this year! I go to brunch every weekend, (literally!), so I thought it’d be fun to assemble a list of some of my favorite NYC brunch spots!

I love this place for all meals honestly, but Tiny’s is a historic old restaurant in Tribeca. It’s a intimate place downstairs and has a fireplace. After brunch you can head upstairs for cocktails at the bar.

If a lively spot is what you’re after, Hundred Acres is a fun spot to go with a big group.

This is the only place that doesn’t take reservations, but it’s worth the wait is there is one. I always take my parents here when they visit!

When it’s a warm day, this is one of my go-to’s! They have outdoor seating, a super yummy menu and it’s in the best location in the West Village. Need I say more?

A little more on the fancy side, Cafe Clover also has outdoor seating and a refined menu.

This is a new favorite. This place is perfect to go with your girlfriends because it has super feminine decor, like a pink couch, white walls and fresh flowers. They are known for their cocktails and their food is totally instagram worthy!

If a bottomless brunch is what you’re after, this place has amazing mimosas, Latin food and lively energy.

DRESS Bobi | TOTE Tory Burch | BOOTS Club Monaco (Wendee Boot sold out)

I have two new obsessions; this Tory tote and knot dress. I don’t wear a lot of form fitting dresses but I love the knot detail at the hip on this one. It’s so feminine and flattering. Pluuuussss it’s currently marked 30% off! I haven’t worn this designer before, but it looks like she carries a lot of basics and classic pieces with an edge. I’m a fan to say the least.

This new tote I couldn’t resist wearing when I got it even though I actually picked it up for summer. I am obsessed with orange, but this tote also comes in five other colors (depending on where you shop!). And the best part? This bag is super affordable! Under $200 which is a steal for miss Tory Burch!

I couldn’t end this post without talking about my boots. If you have been following me for awhile you already know I’m obsessed. I have been looking everywhere and it looks like they are sold out! 🙁 I’ve worn them in a lot of posts but my favorites are here and here and at the Club Monaco presentation in February.




CROP TOP Forever 21 | SKIRT ASOS | THE HIGHLAND BOOT Stuart Weitzman | BAG Tory Burch | TASSEL EARRINGS Bauble Bar (comes in 8 colors!)

Ever since I got the highland boot I have been wearing them nonstop! Now that the snow is melted I love being able to wear suede boots again. I love the grey color and they are so flattering because they tie in the back. The highland over the knee boot is definitely an investment piece so I’m linking two dupes here and here. These boots are perfect all year round for days it’s not raining or snowing! Rain and snow can really ruin suede boots!

Also if you are looking for great earrings for spring, these tassel earrings are only $36 and come in 8 fun colors. And the blush pink color I got goes perfectly with my Tory Burch micro fleming bag. They aren’t two heavy which I love because I can’t wear heavy earrings and they are a fun way to add color to an outfit. I’m picking up a bunch of new styles for spring and summer.

Over the weekend I went to a birthday party in the lower east side on Saturday night and brunch the following day in gramercy so I’m a bit tired this morning! Already on my second cappuccino! Cue the emoji with glasses! In the post about my kitchen, I shared some of the pieces from my New York City apartment and my cappuccino machine is one of my favorites. It gets usage daily, actually several times a day!!!

I moved into this NYC apartment over the summer and although it’s not much larger than a shoe box, I love it. My last apartment was bigger and had an incredible view overlooking the High Line and the Hudson River, but I didn’t like the neighborhood as much as it was really far from a subway (two avenues which is far!) and it was really expensive for what I was paying. This new NYC apartment is in the West Village and close to everything! Subways, the best restaurants, amazing shopping and so many parks. Everything I could need is literally steps away. And as a dog owner it makes my walks more enjoyable to enjoy where I’m walking.

One thing I liked about the apartment was the kitchen. I am renting so I can’t make any modifications, but I love the white cabinets and the white brick back splash. I also love the cut out in the cabinets which is cute for decorating. The views of my NYC apartment are of other brownstones so I put some flowers in the kitchen window sill to cover the view a bit. This apartment definitely is not known for storage, so I have had to get creative (like turning my TV stand into a dresser) but the kitchen is pretty good in that department.

When I was shopping for a table I knew it had to be small so it didn’t stick out too far. This one is 30″ but it also comes in 36″ wide. My table and chairs actually aren’t a set but I think they go nicely together. In my living room which I’ll share soon I have stools that I can pull over if I have extra guests dining with me.

Working from home I cook a lot so I have a pretty well stocked kitchen. I pick up random gadgets all the time from all over the place. But I love this cookware set which is actually on sale right now! I like that it adds a little color to my kitchen. I also love this gold flatware which is super fun for entertaining.

Hope you enjoyed! I’ll have a few more NYC apartment decor posts coming for you once I have my apartment more decorated!
