Helloooooo from Pennsylvania! If you missed my minor update, I'm out at college now and I'm officially blogging from the Lehigh Valley. I want to start recapping my vacation from the last week and a half on the East Coast, so today I'm sharing what I bought in New York City with my Dad. His graduation gift to me was shopping for school in the city, so that's exactly what we did, and I am so excited about all of the goodies we found! (As a disclaimer, this was a requested post and something I wanted to share! I'm not trying to brag in any way, I just thought it'd be fun to show some of my purchases).
Because my bag was lost (honestly, stupidest thing ever. They made me gate check it and literally forgot to put it on the plane), I arrived in New York Thursday night in a sweater when it was 95 degrees out. We were staying at my aunt's on the Upper East Side, so when we woke up on Friday we booked it to Madewell where I got this tee to slip into and picked up this shirt. We really had no idea at that point when my bag would arrive, so we played it safe and continued down Madison Avenue for more shopping. My dad and I both got a few things at Lululemon, which I always get excited about because I basically live in Lulu shorts. We continued into the Barbour where I was so excited to get the Beadnell classic wax jacket and the matching vest as a liner. This jacket was pretty expensive so my dad and I agreed it would be a birthday present; perfect timing that my birthday was on Saturday!
That same night, we ventured into Bloomingdales where I purchased this Free People jacket in navy (not pictured above) for going out at school once it starts to get chilly outside, these shoes that I love, also for going out, and this really cute Free People dress (not pictured above).
On Saturday, my dad and I headed down to Soho for breakfast and more shopping at J. Crew, Club Monaco, and Zara. Club Monaco was having an amazing sale, so I tried on a few things, but I didn't fall in love with anything! I picked up a few tops at J. Crew and then a top and sweater from Zara, but I had trouble finding those online. Overall it was a pretty successful trip in my opinion so I'm so grateful my dad was a good sport for the weekend and I was able to snag a few new things for school!!
I can't believe I move in tomorrow, ahhh!
