Day and Night
After a successful trip to the beach last weekend, we realized we need to make it mandatory to make it to the ocean as much as we could while summer is here.
Plus, going to the beach in the month of August means getting to enjoy all of those great summer items at the discount price they were always meant to be!
Allie picked up this indigo cover up and straw hat from JCrew's summer sale.
Working five days a week really makes you a sales guru.
i always try to leave a place still wanting to see more.
Meanwhile, I picked up this adorable Pamela Barsky pouch from a pop-up shop on Lafayette during my lunch break.
Pamela has a wide collection of different size pouches with thee most clever and at times laugh out loud hilarious sayings I could hear coming out of any of my girlfriend's mouth.
I always use this particular saying when traveling because of the anxiety I feel about not being able to see it all.
Allie, the professional beach attendee.
Last week we were amateurs; some of us forgot towels, no snacks or drinks packed.
Cover up (Old Navy), Flipflops (Ipanema), Sunnies (Quay), Beach Bag (Puerto Rico).
This time we brought outrageously delicious sandwiches from Anthony & Sons and supplies to make Shandy's.
We did forget the games though :/ ...
...next time, I suppose.
Beach bag accessories: Fur keychain (Etsy), Pineapple keychain (Hawaii)
After a shower and some dinner. We met back up to catch Great Caesar play at Rough Trade. They have since inducted a female singer to the band and her voice, plus the instruments/horns and lyrics really make for an amazing show at a great new venue in town that doubles as a record shop during the day.
We grabbed a cocktail at Hotel Delmano around the corner afterwards - Because it was down the block but mostly because I'll come up with any excuse to have a damn good cocktail.
The Alibi (Pineapple infused tequila, cinnamon, vanilla - shaken and served up)
The space is filled with a bunch of tiny rooms and cozy seating for parties and couples.
A must stop in North Williamsburg.
Bacon and eggs.
I found this smiley guy on the walk to the next destination.

Another wonderful day and night in NY.
These ladies really know how to enjoy a day off duty.
