Weekend Look on a Budget | Chevy

IMG_4995

I had the chance to cruise around one of my favorite neighborhoods in all of NYC, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in none other than the great American car classic, a Chevy! The new Chevy Cruze to be exact. I’m more of a passenger seat sort of person, so Annie from Refinery 29 got behind the wheel and we explored the best of what Williamsburg had to offer vintage and thrift shopping wise. Driving is so much easier in Brooklyn than any other part of Manhattan, so it was nice to lean back and get a different view of the city from inside our Chevy. We went around town, exploring nooks and finding the best deals in town for outfits for girls on a budget. And because it’s Brooklyn, we can be sure find the most unique and statement-making pieces, so we won’t blend in with the crowd. The same goes for our Chevy. It’s always a standout car choice for a city girl!

FERRAGAMO BUCKLE

Ferragamo has nailed the 70’s retro look. This statement pair of sunglasses is just what I was looking for this season. Bold, and extra large. Made for walking around the city streets on the way to your next gig, or an incognito weekend on Shelter Island. I feel every woman needs a little bit of glamour thrown into our everyday lives. For me, I find it in my accessories. Complete the look with a beautiful silk scarf from your most exotic of travels.

OLD CITY OF SAN JUAN

oldsj48_ED

The architecture in Old City San Juan is stunning. Much of which was born with European influence…from when Puerto Rico was still in Spanish possesion back in the 17th century. You can see it in the vibrant colors, intricate fencing, and narrow streets. All of which remind me of Barcelona. Sundrenched colorful walls which have slowly faded into majestic pastel hues. As I slowly worked on brushing up my Spanish as we explored this beautiful city, we found ourselves sipping on pina coladas daily and devouring in mofongo drenched with hot chicken broth. The heat from the island making me crave the fresh fruit at La Placita. Our skin glowing thanks to the light prespiration that comes with days on our feet and early mornings laying in the sun in nothing but a bikini and off-shoulder summer dress. Dylana and I couldn’t stop taking photos. Every hidden doorway, every shadowed balcony a little gem. A postcard. Running straight through the narrow cobblestone streets, we ended at a cliff overlooking rows of flat rooftops and the blue of the ocean. Talk about breathtaking.
