Free as we'll ever be

June is the best time to visit New York City. I've been several times and have experienced the worst heat and the worst cold there. Labor Day takes second place to June. It's pretty mild. But no wonder "June weddings at the Plaza" are so popular! It's the best time of the year in the city.

Hmm, it seems I may need a little tan, after seeing this picture of my legs. We spent a lot of time outdoors and walking to places (duh) so I opted to wear these comfy tie-up sandals by Balenciaga that I scooped up at the Barney's New York outlet (btw- a PAIN to wear through TSA at the airport!!!!!!). A little pricey for sandals, but hellooooo, they're Balenciaga (#brandwhore)!

I loved spending about half an hour at Central Park, just doing nothing but sit around and enjoy the pretty view and nice weather. It's 102 degrees in Dallas. I miss nice weather. *sigh*

Destination Wedding

A friend of ours had a destination wedding recently in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Fiance (I'm so lazy to Google this, but what is the correct spelling for 'fiance' anyway? I've seen it written a couple different ways and can never remember) and I went for a weekend to attend and just chill. We flew into Ft. Lauderdale and then drove about 45 minutes down to Miami to visit and have lunch with some family there. We were on our way to South Beach (so close!) when it started raining cats and dogs out of the blue... Seriously, it was the worst rain I'd seen in a long time. The streets were flooded! After trying to wait it out for about an hour, we gave up and went shopping instead. Ever get to a place and then decide you don't want to wear what you packed? Um, by biggest travel issue ALWAYS. After buying two new potential dresses and a pair of pumps to wear for the wedding the next day, we headed back to the hotel. Party, party, partied all night! Slept in, went to the beach, chilled, etc. etc.

Time for the wedding! I tried on the two dresses I had just purchased and the one I brought. Guess which one I decided on? The one I brought to begin with. And the shoes, too. SMH. Now I have to go return the two dresses and shoes that I don't need for anything. I didn't bring my camera out for anything while I was there because it was too big for my purse. Took one quick snap before heading out for the rooftop pool wedding and here it is!

If you can see a little in the back, that's the beach! Our beachfront hotel (Westin) was awesome and it was a super good deal, too! Beautiful view to wake up to. Anyway, NYC pics next! XOXO.
