This year I finally moved from Hell’s Kitchen to Astoria. Moving from Manhattan to Queens was a huge decision, but I’m glad I did it because I’m now paying less to live in a bigger place and I’ve gotten the chance to discover new hangouts, food and boutiques. So far Kinship Coffee (where the below latte is from) and The Lockwood Shop (where my sweatshirt is from) have become my favorites. Kinship has amazing coffee and they’re always featuring the work of local artists while Lockwood has the cutest outfits.
Moving to Astoria after six years of living in Manhattan has truly made 2016 fun and different. I’m looking forward to visiting my favorite new spots more in the New Year and exploring more of Astoria. Aside from the sweatshirt from Lockwood, I’m sporting a Gap Women Coldcontrol Max Hooded Puffer Vest, Uniqlo Women’s Ultra Stretch Jeans, and my Rebecca Minkoff Love Crossbody. The boots are from Express.
