date nights are always the best, whether it’s with friends, some new guy you chatted up online, or your amazing boyfriend. it forces you to get out of the house, have actual conversations sans your cell phone, and explore the city. i think i’m going to try to squeeze this into my schedule as often as possible. marcel and i first met up in tribeca for some photos, then off to soho for a blueberry bellini and the most delicious brussel spouts i’ve ever eaten, and then after to chinatown for some mandatory pho. and what did i wear for this casual-ish date night? some ripped denim, a nice top, and a white blazer thrown over the shoulders. to dress up the ripped denim, i added black stilettos, a super awesome necklace, and a python clutch wallet. it was so much fun prancing around the empty streets, wind blowing my hair in every possible direction, trying to capture the light before the sun set. i just cannot get over this city.
