I recently fell in love with the iced matcha and macadamia milk latte at Cha Cha Matcha on Broome St. I’m obsessed with their pretty pink and green decor and have been ordering this signature green latte ever since.
For those of you that aren’t familiar with matcha, it’s a finely ground green tea powder originally from Japan. It’s an acquired taste, but after one or two lattes you’ll be hooked. The macadamia milk is naturally sweet so you get that ice cream taste without the harmful effects of added sugar. So it’s good and good for you. If you’re in NYC I highly recommend stopping by Cha Cha Matcha. Your caffeine craving and your Instagram will thank you!
Last weekend I joined The Staycationers for a once in a lifetime NYC staycation made possible by Loomstead (their Linen 3-Piece Duvet Set is pictured above), Helix Sleep and Free People. Since the dress code was pajamas, I broke out my Pink Watercolor Floral Silky Kimono Robe for the occasion. Thanks to the heat, humidity and my desperate need for a haircut, my hair was a mess the whole time. Somehow, however, my mess of a hairdo went really well with the pajama theme. While I went to get a haircut right after the event, sometimes the universe just gives you what you need in the strangest ways.
We had a great time eating snacks, enjoying glasses of Ruffino Prosecco and getting makeovers by Nomi Beauty. In true 90s sleepover fashion there was even a ouija board. My psychic told me not to play with them and I didn’t. But, that doesn’t mean I wasn’t tempted.
This summer is the summer of stripes and fab accessories. One thing I’ll be wearing a lot is this striped cotton dress from Tobi.com. It’s sleek, stylish and dressy enough to wear to just about any wine bar. Plus, it’s on sale for $22.
It’s not summer in New York until you’re in Central Park in a J.Crew Gingham Dress. This blue Gingham Ruffle Hem Midi Dress is the perfect pick for a picnic, graduation or day at the races. Not only does it give you a classy summer look, it’s also super airy and comfortable.
Someday I’d like to be bicoastal and have a place in New York and a place in Los Angeles. I always say that my heart is NY and my soul is LA. That being said, it’s impossible to choose between the two. Luckily, Sundry came out with a shirt that describes me perfectly. The moment I saw this Sundry LA/NY Burnout Long Sleeve Raglan I knew I had to have it. You can shop it along with my fav Sundry city styles below. Enjoy your next cross country flight!
