Hester Street Fair

23 May

Last weekend I wandered with my pal Gen and her boyfriend to check out the Hester Street Fair. Small and cozy, there were lots of interesting vendors and good food. I tried the macarons because how can a girl resist? Next time I will definitely try the lobster rolls and pulled pork sammies. I met and chatted with Wink and Flip, a local jewelry maker. Her designs were very colorful and summer-appropriate. I picked one up for a friend and plan on going back for more Anthropologie-esque designs (without the price tag).

Gray gloomy skies are here to stay this week in NYC. We had one glimpse of sun on Saturday and I soaked it up completely. Of course, because NYC likes to keep you on your toes, it started to downpour. Cue my run to the closest taxi.

While the weather is not pleasant, I am happy that this coming Thursday I will be jetting off to California for a quick trip. There will be lots of smiles, laughter, and FOOD. I am literally going to soak up the California sun and hopefully bring it back to New York. A little dose of home is just what this girl needs!

    Your photos are always so beautiful, and the jewelry selection looks out of this world. I love a good statement piece, since it means that I can wear a simple t-shirt and jeans, yet again, and it still looks fresh and new.

    Anthropologie-esque without the price tag? Sign.me.up! Also, I’m a bit jealous of your impending trip home. I’m a bit homesick myself and am excitedly looking forward to a coming trip back to the States in a few weeks. Ah, if only it could be this week!

    i love all of the amazing street fairs in NY, I wish we had as many in LA. Well we have some but not of the same caliber as NY. Have a fun trip in CA, it hasn’t been super warm but it is sunny!
