Dining Room Dreams

I can't wait to actually put some of the gifts I received at my shower to good use one day in a dining room.  Even A has said that he misses having a designated dining space. There's something special about a room designed just for the two best things in life - eating and chatting! Until then....

Shorts.....at the Office?

Via
I can wear shorts to work, and it's perfectly acceptable. Welcome to the new world of cool technology companies. Anyways, there's still a fine line between chic shorts and slutty shorts. If you're lucky enough to work in a creative environment, you'll want to keep the short length g-rated and paired with flats and a conservative top.

Here's what not to wear:

Weekend Recap

My godmother threw the most beautiful wedding shower for me this past weekend. I felt so incredibly loved by family and friends and can't wait till the pictures come back from the photographer to share with you all!

Tuesday Trends

The trendy Valentino Rockstud heels have been around for a few years now. While the heels have never been a must-have for me, the booties and boots give me heart palpitations. I'm aware it's currently June, but pre-Fall items are filling my wish list and these gorgeous specimens are at the very top.

Where to Eat in SoHo

I eat a lot. It's basically my hobby for all intensive purposes, and I'm okay with that. My stomach generally keeps me below 14th street (except for Maison Kayser on 21st). Shopping in SoHo? Here's where to eat:

Brunch:

Balthazar - A popular spot among celebrities. It's also carbohydrate heaven, and I'm okay with that.
Lafayette -  Their croissants (pictured above) and bacon are divine. If you can't snag a table, sit at the nautical themed bar and try to squeeze out their secret Bloody Mary recipe from the bartender. Not that I've ever done that.

Lunch:

Jack's Wife Freda - An avocado sandwich with a side of fries is my idea of heaven. In fact, so heavenly that I've never even been able to take a picture before digging in.
Alidoro - An Italian sandwich shop recommended by A and apparently a huge fan favorite of all the banks downtown
Blue Ribbon Bakery - French onion soup (pictured above).

Dinner:
The Dutch - On Monday nights, they have a fried chicken dinner special that comes with the most incredible biscuits in the world and pie. I've blogged in its honor before.
AquaGrill - I call this spot "the door to SoHo" since it's the first thing you see when exiting the E train. This door also offers amazing lobster.
Carbone  - I've blogged about Carbone before. The veal milanese is true heaven (even over the avocado toast).
Snacks:
Laduree - A popular tourist spot but still a chic one, and the salted caramel macaroons are my favorite. I personally don't find the food to be anything special, but it's a great girly destination for tea.

Monday Musings

Le sigh.
