Big City, Quiet City

Happy Fourth of July! Let me just start this off and say I hope wherever you are, it's not raining—this whole Hurricane Arthur thing is killing my beach vibes, I had serious plans to be anything BUT serious, camped out on the beach. Oh, well...still dragging my butt out of bed for an early morning #ParkerParty, Party in the USA style!
 I mentioned in my last post that I really look forward to this weekend every summer, as it's one of the few holidays I don't travel (something to think about if you're moving cross-country…most, if not all, your vacation time goes to trips back home!). A lot of my NYC friends didn't originate here, either, and hopped planes back home or to vacations of their own for a few days, so I'm taking advantage of the quiet(er) city and hitting up some of my favorite spots and a few new ones this weekend, like when I wandered through some new streets in Brooklyn last weekend in a somewhat subtle red-white-and-blue.. Want to see where I go, or have suggestions for me? Follow me on Instagram, and leave a comment below! Hopefully this weather will clear up in time for me to catch some 
East River (!!! finally) fireworks from a Brooklyn rooftop tomorrow night ;)


  1. The white lace dress is exactly the thing I'd wear, love your simple red and blue accessories. Hope you are having a happy 4th!

  2. I feel so bad about the hurricane! Kansas was suppppeerrrr dry so we didn't have any delays and the fireworks went on as usual.

  3. Gotta make a visit to Pies N' Thighs in Brooklyn. One of my favorite places!
    Looking very cute in that dress, by the way :)
