LOFT sunglasses,
Splendid T-shirt (similar), Target dress (worn as skirt, similar), Franco Sarto ballet flats (similar)

Pink may be my
favorite color, but I feel the prettiest in red. Maybe Diane Keaton said it
best, “Red is a language all its own. Red says love, red says fabulous, red
says, ‘I’m just getting started!’”
I’m so happy to be in
NYC. I feel so blessed to be part of the Marie Claire features team and to
learn from such funny, smart women every day. I’ve also had a blast exploring
the city—and I have the blisters to prove it! Walking everywhere here is no joke. My roommate Mary Liz and I
snapped these photos on our way to a BBQ in Madison Square Park before we
hopped over to see the Punk exhibit at the MET and squeezed in time for
shopping at Union Square ; )
Have a great week

      Thanks Mira! Yes, I'm having the best time exploring NYC–getting lost on the subway several times hasn't been the highlight though! ; )

    I love pink too, but red definitely says fabulous! Adore the pop of color against the simple navy and white striped tee.
