Chilly Morning at The Cloisters

After two long weeks of final projects and exams for graduate school, it was nice to finally take a stroll through another New York City site–The Cloisters!

The Cloisters, if you’ve never been, is definitely a unique experience. I found the architecture of the museum completely mesmerizing. It is located on top of a hill in Fort Tryon Park, so I wanted to be comfortable walking around the museum as well as through the park.

I decided to rock my lounge pants that are pretty much a staple for me during transitional weather. This was a chilly morning on an overcast day, so it seemed like the perfect day to wear them. Lounge pants, in my own opinion, are the perfect kinds of pants. They are loose fitting, flexible and comfortable–plus can be worn in numerous ways!

My navy blue lounge pants are from Uniqlo, which I paired with a beige Airism tank top also from Uniqlo– (not sponsored by the way—I just really like their clothes). I went with a pair of women’s loafers that are perfect for walking and added a bit of texture to my outfit as well as a clutch from Madison West. Both those items were purchased at DSW.

Of course for some added comfort and warmth, I wrapped it all up in a cozy knitted grey and white sweater from Target. The added layer made a great difference when walking through the park.

Now that the semester is over, the last couple of weeks of August feels infinite. Hopefully, I can make couple more posts before the semester starts up again. We’ll see. Thank you for visiting and I hoped you were inspired! Till our next adventure! 🙂

Windy Day Adventure

The weekends just keep on getting better. Sunday ‘s temperature in the afternoon was wonderful despite the wind.

Windy Day Adventure - Spring 2017

I am in graduate school, so Sundays are usually my homework days but I couldn’t resist the suggestion to walk through High Bridge Park. I had only been there once before, during the winter. Of course, I needed to see it again under better conditions plus taking a mental break from school work is definitely beneficial.

Windy Day Adventure - Spring 2017My pairing for this stroll was simple yet comfortable. I paired a light-wash denim shorts and a thin white peasant blouse. Both pieces just blend together creating the perfect outfit that will keep you cool and comfortable through a windy and warm walk. My blouse is very long and wide, so I tucked the shirt in and added a darker belt to not just keep my shorts up but also to add a contrasting tone to make the top and bottom pop out.  For my shoes, I decided to sport my gold flats once more to keep the overall look soft.

Windy Day Adventure - Spring 2017The blouse is an old timer piece from H&M that has been in my closet for years as well as my gold flats from DSW and navy blue belt from Kohls. My shorts, on the other hand, are a new addition! I bought them two weekends ago at Kohls, and this weekend was their first time out!

Hope everyone has had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Here’s to more weekend adventures to come.

Till next time! 🙂
