Happy Saturday and hello from New York! Gosh, it is so nice to be here. I got a little bit emotional when I landed, which isn’t something I foresaw happening. It’s a weird mix of emotions that is hard to explain? I’m really happy to be here though – last night we went to two of my favorite spots (Dante in the West Village for dinner and then Bemelman’s afterward). I am so happy that Bemelman’s is open again! Today I’m seeing my sister and my cousin and my NIECE and then have dinner with a friend an engagement party. A quick but full weekend away. Have a wonderful weekend.

They were all out of the Paperbag shorts on Shopbop so I found them on Madewell.com. I’m bigger than you are in the waist and hips so I got a large I’m a 10 dress in Anthropology . Fingers crossed I’m going nuts looking for the video on them everywhere where you showed them for day and with a black T and heels for night . Thanks, so cute on you. ! Love them.
Hope you love them, they are so cute!!!!
