NYC Adventure Part 2 and "the stylist guide to NYC"

Hello Friends!

I am so excited to be back and i have so much to share with you!
We had a wonderful trip to Yosemite!
it really got me in the fall spirit and i brought back a few things i'd like to share with you soon.

i'll start where i left off on my NY trip...
After stumbling upon Fishs Eddy and picking up a vintage tablecloth, we went the Farmer's market that was only a block away.

we decided on some apples, european cheese and freshly baked bread. After we finished our lovely treat,
we napped under the huge trees in Central Park..

it was hard to imagine what could top this moment until we headed to..

The Loeb Boathouse and rented a romantic row boat for an hour, fun!

After a wonderful afternoon we were back to the streets where we

admired street art

and stopped at tiny boutiques.

some were so tempting with pretty and sparkling things in the window

(Chelsea Antiques Garage)

we shopped at indoor flea markets

(West 25th between 5th and 6th)

and outdoor flea markets

and tasted the coffee of NYC..

which was truly amazing coffee!

this would be our last stop on our NYC trip..
it was a designers dream!

it was filled with eye candy..
tons of antiques and vintage goodies!

floor after floor of the most amazing stuff..
6 floors to be exact

even the walls and columns in this store were to die for!

All of the stores i shared with you can be found in this fabulous book called
i happened upon this terrific book at Anthropologie the day before i was to leave for NYC.
it had me at hello!
Dear friends, .. do not go to NYC without it!

This weekend i'm hosting my sister's baby shower...
i'm really excited and hoping everything runs smoothly!

in the next few days, i'll share an amazing treasure i found at the Chelsea Flea Market...

until next time,
