Is it already Sunday? It is time for a new post, a travel one featuring my daily outfit. Last week I spent a day in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. During the day, I walked around the cute buildings, quirky shops, and ate tons of yummy food. Enjoy the itinerary of the day, I tired to feature the best of the best in the area.
Once arrived, it was lunch time, so I headed over to Streets. The restaurant is themed around street food from all around the world. I shared the Bao Box and the Open Face Humitas.
After lunch, I took the short walk over to the MIni Mall, which was filled with vintage shops, book shops, and other small boutiques. Some of my favorites included Soap Cherie, Pink Olive, and Spoonbill and Sugartown Books. I got a little hot and hungry from walking around, so the next stop was Old Fellows Ice Cream Co. for some matcha and Thai iced tea ice cream. Since that was relatively close to the water, I left cooler and fuller, ready to check out the view of Manhattan over the water.
The view of the water was the perfect area for some pictures of my outfit of the day. I picked a fall palette (because I miss my favorite season) but with summer clothes. The materials are also very fall -- sweaters and swede, but the outfit is cute nonetheless. Plus, if you add tights and booties, it would look great in fall too! Here is where everything is from:
And of course I had to take some pictures of the view without my outfit, so here are some of those. It was gorgeous, but sadly the sun wasn't in the most convenient place for photos.
Walking along the waterfront brought me to the very cute, East River State Park. This also happens to be the place where Smorgasburg is held (I would love to go to this). It had plenty of shade and was a great place to sit and cool off, with a view. After a quick rest, I walked around town a bit more, viewing all the amazing street art.
My second set of shopping stops were at Brooklyn Denim Co., Mast Brothers Chocolate, and Bluestone Lane Coffee. The Denim store has some great quality denim, in any shape in size, and most are locally made. Mast had some of the most inventive flavors of chocolate I have ever tasted. After these quick stops it was time for the dinner reservation at Zenkichi. It was filled with great quality Japanese food in a calming, private environment. Each party gets their own booth, surrounded by walls and a curtain. There is a button for when you would like to order. I got the potato mochi and udon.
Thus concludes a lovely day in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. If you live nearby or plan on visiting New York, I highly recommend spending a day in this area. It is a great break from Manhattan, which is generally very crowded. Also, it is filled with small local shops instead of the big commercial stores. I hope you enjoyed the photos and itinerary, let me know if you have been/plan on going to Brooklyn. Have a fantastic week!
