A Day in Brooklyn

Good morning everyone! I was so tired last night. Fell asleep earlier than expected, sorry for not posting! Below are a few pictures we took in Brooklyn when Skeena was here. I adore the colors of this street art mural, it's even more vibrant and amazing in person (plus it's massive!). If you don't know much about New York, Brooklyn is about a 10 minute subway ride from Manhattan and it's where a lot of people, who work in the city, live. The rent is a lot cheaper and the environment is a lot more chilled out (no high rises, traffic, ambulances etc).

My favorite part of Brooklyn is Williamsburg (Bedford ave subway stop). It's mainly one street lined with small quirky shops as well as lots of little random street stalls, cute restaurants with an array of street art. What I love most about this place though, are the people's sense of style. It's a mix of London 'street' meets fresh prince of bel air. Very funky cool people, love it. We spent about three hours walking around and had lunch at Juliette, which has a nice terrace upstairs for the summer time. For those of you wondering, my jeans are from TopShop, my sunnies from Nasty Gal and my scarf & jacket from Zara.


A few pictures taken with Skeena's iPhone




Such a lovely day!

  2. Amazing pictures. I really want to go to NYC one day and in particular, Brooklyn! I think it was Dan Humphrey and the shots of Brooklyn on Gossip Girl that made me want to visit! For now, I'll just stare in awe at your pictures!
