Gab Loves: No. 237

Gab Loves April 2016

Perhaps my favorite discovery of the week is these leather pouf ottomans available in the prettiest shades of sand and surf. I’ve been trying to find a solution around the fact that I have no space in my studio for a sofa—a wide double chair and a couple of leather pouf should do just the trick, don’t you think? Okay, so I won’t be hosting grand dinner parties anytime soon, but it’s just enough to have a space to kick my feet up at night, or have a girlfriend over for a glass of wine. Adding to cart, stat.

My parents are in New York this weekend, and I couldn’t be happier to spend some quality time with them! The weather is absolutely gorgeous here this weekend—so we’ll walk around, have dinner, go to the new Whitney, and have lunch at Santina (my fave!) tomorrow. It was a long week over here, so I’m glad I get to sit back and relax this weekend.

Within a matter of a weekend, the weather in New York went from dreary and cold, to insanely warm and sunny—and I couldn’t be happier about it! I’ve been trying to figure out how I want to upgrade my wardrobe for Spring/Summer, and at the top of my list is a micro chambray structured bag, and a pair of tasseled slides (I actually purchased them mid-post). One thing I’ve noticed since moving, is how uncomfortable every single pair of shoes I own really is. I never noticed it when I only had to go from my apartment to my car… But now the blisters are only too real. My wish list of shoes is long—but with the weather we’ve been having, these are the perfect elevated comfortable walking flats to start the season off right. Consider it a gift from myself to my (now happy) feet.

The Weekender: Fashion and Style

It’s starting to really feel like spring here in New York. Yesterday I met up with girlfriends in Washington Square Park to bask in the sun a little, this morning I had brunch outside… It feels so good when temperatures rise, but I always struggle to dress in these in between seasons. This weekend, I squeezed in a little shopping at J.Crew (I bought two pairs of their Billie Demi-Boot Crop (on sale!) Jeans and I’m obsessed. Consider me a high-rise convert.

I’ve been having such a great time in New York, that it’s been hard to carve out times to blog—or cook, or exercise. It feels like life is a perpetual series of work and eating out (about two meals a day, on average). The good news is that I’ve discovered so many great local gems, that I’ll start featuring them on the blog in the next few weeks.
