Well, we made it. If you have been following for some time, you may be aware that my last trip to NYC with a friend, I ended up in Queens (not the destination I was looking for). I am happy to say, Rose, Jess, Emily and I reached SoHo without any long detours to Queens. From Penn Station, we took the C subway downtown and got off at Spring Street. See! Now I know what I’m talking about, it only took some time.. You can read about my lost adventure in the city here.
This past Tuesday there were luckily no issues. Amen. Once reaching Soho, all of us were starving. We walked and talked looking at each corner for somewhere to stop in to eat. We finally came across a quaint, little Irish pub. Very un-Irish of me, I settled for a taco salad.
Being away from the comfort of my friends from growing up can be tough. Luckily, once returning to my hometown, it’s like we never parted ways. After sitting, eating, chatting and ranting we paid for our meals and were on our way. We strolled around Soho, going in and out of stores; following the cutest cobblestone pathways as our way of direction. Of course, we stopped to take pictures because duh what’s a trip to NYC without pictures. Reaching rush hour we decided to make our way home. We hopped on the subway, took the C subway Uptown, got off at Penn Station and took our train home. And there you have it, a successful trip to Soho, Manhatten. What a day..

Sometimes you cross paths with people who are incredibly like you, it fascinates me that in todays world we are capable of meeting people from another part of our country or world. Thank you to Charlotte Luisa for collaborating on this post with me. Charlotte’s idea was to purchase the same piece of clothing so we could differently style our outfits. In our posts you will see the same top is featured and is styled completely differently so you can see the versatile ways you can wear a white off the shoulder top.

Our white top is fitted with a scrunched texture and hangs tightly off the shoulder. The shirt is very stretchy but does show a little skin but not fully a crop top. I styled the top with ripped semi dark, semi light blue jeans. I choose jeans that were slightly ripped just so you could still wear this outfit to a family event. I wanted to be tasteful, classy and fun with the way I styled this ensemble. Next for shoes I chose these Steve Madden sandals, they have a slight chunky heel, thick straps that criss cross over the foot and gold buckle detailing on the outer sides of the shoe. For accessories I kept it simple with my Kate Spade hand bag with gold detailing along with my gold aviator Ray-Bands. To keep with the gold detailing throughout this outfit I choose a gold stone necklace and a fish gold ring. This outfit is definitely one of my favorites because of the neutral tones and simple styling. Details will be below, click on the piece to directly be taken to it online! XX
