Central Park memories are my favorite…

I honestly think I can say this is my favorite spot in New York City. I now have so many memories here, it’s a really special spot for me. I’ve been here with Rachel and Danny to have a picnic in the fall after a failed trip upstate, I’ve been here to shoot my friends Jade and Trent’s engagement photos, and in this post I am here with my Aunt Sara Margaret ,my cousin Sara Kate, and my love Danny. My Aunt and cousin were in town a few weeks ago and while in NY, I had to have a picnic with them here at my favorite spot. They had gotten all of the food and holy moly, it was the best picnic I have ever had! We had so many yummy fruits, cheeses, breads, and pastries! Seriously, it was so delicious! Not to mention, in our red solo cups (we kept singing this Toby Keith song) we were drinking gin and ginger ail! I would love to go back to this moment. These photos really have me daydreaming..

This plaid long skirt is by Alice’s Pig and I believe is the first long skirt I have ever owned. I am beyond thrilled that it’s my first longer skirt because it’s PERFECT. I mean seriously, the way it looks when you’re walking and the fact that it’s super high waisted is too good! I paired it with this cropped Alice’s Pig top (because their stuff goes great together!) and felt amazing all day. I’m not sure why, but I loved wearing this skirt so much. I really liked having something flow behind me.. ha. I’m sure I sound a bit crazy, but I hope you sort of know what I mean!

This necklace is another one by Peter and June. I’m so in love with all of their pieces, you’ll be seeing a lot more! This one is so playful and I feel like I could wear it with any collared shirt!

I can’t wait for Gov Ball this weekend!

About a month ago (yeah- that’s how behind on blog posts I am) Jade and I went to the beach on the day that was the warmest of 2015 (I would say the high was like 80). We were beyond thrilled and since Jade has a car, we drove down to Fort Tilden with swimsuits on and all. Once we got there, it was pretty damn cold. I seem to always get so hopeful and forget that near the water it’s about 10 degrees cooler. Despite it being pretty cool though, we committed to our journey (that’s the kind of girls Jade and I are) and had a damn blast! We took some photos, drank Pampelonne that I snuck onto the beach, and talked about old times. When I first moved to New York with Jade, we had a similar beach day where we went a little prematurely and froze our butts off at the beach! It’s these memories that I truly cherish with Jade. She’s down for any journey and together we always make the most of any situation. Love this babe for life.

After our little trip, we went to Calexico in Greenpoint to grab some Mexican on their porch outside and enjoy some drinks! It was the perfect ending to the day.

Now to talk about my outfit here. I am wearing a dress I thrifted from Crossroads trading. I love getting summer dresses at Crossroads because there are typically SO many! I’m also buying everything white this past month! I’m not sure why.. I’m typically scared of ruining it,but I’ve been all about it lately! I wore this huge hat I thrifted recently in Williamsburg with these perfect Boden flats. I mean C’MON. These flats are perfection and such a good mixup from the usual flats!

I wore this pineapple swimsuit (finally!) made by Kortni Jeane! Her swimsuits are mix and match with so many flattering shapes. She also had a scale-mermaid-y one that I’m dying for! If you’re looking for a good, flattering new suit, check her stuff out!

Weekend in Philly

IMG_3979

Finally sharing this Mod Dolly look from my weekend trip to Philly…

IMG_3997 IMG_4040 IMG_4120 IMG_3954 IMG_4049 IMG_3944 IMG_3992 IMG_3984 IMG_4012 IMG_4019 IMG_4109 IMG_4058 IMG_4125Perhaps about a month ago, I went on a little weekend trip to Philly (taking the bus up and everything!) and here I am finally getting around to sharing some snaps I took while there. I decided to take a tiny break from the Memphis photos to share this look with you! Plus some shots of one of my BFF’s Jade Younger, a friend I have known for literally half of my life. She’s almost like my sister in some ways.

Now, I know I’m different on this one, but I enjoy wearing plaid year round. Perhaps it’s because my name is Noelle and I’m the biggest lover of Christmas (and winter) that there ever could be but man plaid always lures me in! This cute little Mod Dolly number is just too perfect to only be worn in one season! I kept it cute with this velvet kitty bag (which I am coming to terms I may have too many kitty bags) and these Forever 21 shoes that have been in nearly every post I have made lately! I promise I’ll return to wearing my other shoes soon. I just love these so much!

I wish while I was in Philly I would of taken more random photos,but sadly I did not! More trips coming up soon though (California!) and I’ll try to take some random NY bits soon.

Love,

Noelle
