Sharing snaps from a new favorite restaurant in our neighborhood…
A perfect afternoon at Smorgasburg…
This summer I’ve gone a few times to the Smorgasburg in Williamsburg and every time I’ve gotten some of the most delicious treats! For those of you who maybe don’t know what Smorgasburg is, it’s an outdoor food festival that happens every weekend in Williamsburg (and in other boroughs!) which lots of delicious treats and meals. I usually have a few favorite places I seek out, such as the huge coconuts, vegan ice cream, and truffle fries. I can’t remember the specific names of each booth, but honestly there’s so many and they are pretty much all amazing!
On this Saturday while Brandi and I did this, I went a wee bit watermelon crazy with my look. It’s no surprise I love prints, especially a good watermelon one! The good news is that this dress is super cheap! I got asked so many times the day I wore it where it was from and it’s from Choies.com. It’s more like a tunic than a dress so I threw some shorts on underneath,but I love it! It goes so well with this straw watermelon bag (obviously!)
I want to know, do you guys enjoy my posts about food and things I like to enjoy over the weekend? Let me know in the comments if so!
I’ve partnered up with Maison Jules to share my 3 favorite french-inspired places in Brooklyn…
Pates Et Tradisions
This is one of the cutest places in Brookyn, Pates Et Tradisions. It’s decorated in such a special way and has the best crepes (sweet and salty!) and is also amazing for brunch. It’s located in Williamsburg which isn’t a very far walk from me and it’s just such a lovely little french spot. Definitely a must of mine!
While getting some late brunch here, I was wearing this adorable Maison Jules dress. I think this dress is so perfect! The lace details along with the polkadots is just so sweet and vintage-y. I made it a super sweet look by putting my hair up in a pony tail tied up with a light blue bow. Plus my telephone bag, red shoes and lip to finish it off. Such a perfect look for an eclectic french cafe!
Grabbing flowers at a little corner store always makes me feel a bit french, even if it may be as much of a New York thing as it is a french thing! I just love seeing the beautiful flowers and trying to decide which ones I’ll get. My go-to is always Graham Gardens because it’s near my apartment and they have so many to chose from! Such a perfect spot for picking up a bunch of pretties.
While running some errands and stopping at Graham Gardens I wore this light chambray jumpsuit! Certainly switching it up and I love it! I kept is easy and french with a straw boater hat and some light sandals. Such a cute easy look for running a bit of errands!
The Bakeshop by Woops
This is my go-to place for french macarons! The Bakeshop by Whoops makes just the yummiest sweets,but above all the macarons are delish! I love to come here to grab a tea and macaron and have some downtime to think and enjoy myself. The cafe is so adorable and recently they expanded the place, so there’s always enough room to snap some beautiful photos (this is always very important to me, ahah!) But honestly this is one of my favorite spots in Williamsburg to chill out and enjoy a sweet.
I wore this parisian-inspired Maison Jules striped dress to grab some sweets with Danny. The great thing about striped dresses is you can always wear your quirky accessories with them! Stripes are something I always wear with my crazier, novelty bags because they go together so well! This dress is also so comfortable for this July heat.
I hope you get to enjoy any of these 3 places to get a little taste of Paris (to me!). I have never been to Paris,but I always dream of it. I’m hoping to go in the next year or so and enjoy all it has to offer.
