This past Sunday I spent the entire day exploring all that Brooklyn has to offer. It was my first time to visit this part of New York, and it was definitely worth the trek over the Brooklyn Bridge. The area was more quiet and much less busy than bustling Manhattan – the streets wider, the brownstones bigger and the neighborhoods cleaner. DUMBO (which is where we shot the colorful wall you see above and the shot of the Manhattan bridge from the street) is a quaint little area with a bunch of great boutiques and book stores. It also has this adorable place for cookies and coffee called One Girl Cookies, which had the most delicious ham and parmesan scones! After we picked up our scones, we sidled over to the park by Jane’s Carousel to enjoy the sunshine for a couple hours. Before lunch, we walked through Brooklyn Heights which is one of the more beautiful neighborhoods I’ve seen in New York. Each stoop is lined with flowers and well-kept – Brooklyn Heights has such breathtaking streets to walk and see all of the real estate. For lunch, we stopped in a small Italian eatery in the heart of Brooklyn Heights. The food was rich and delicious, aka everything I’m looking for when on vacation! Basically, Brooklyn is a new favorite destination of mine when visiting New York. Absolutely worth a trip if you’ve never been before!

For the walk over the Brooklyn Bridge, I needed a sturdy pair of comfortable shoes – I opted for my Old Navy sneakers which kept me happy all day. This striped sundress by Pim & Larkin at Piperlime was the ideal choice for a day out, don’t you think? It’s under $150, so the dress was an easy sell for me. Popped on my new favorite pair of sunnies and my go-to crossbody bag and I was good to go! Tomorrow I’m hopping on a ferry to go to Liberty State Park for Veuve Clicquot’s annual Polo Classic – it’s supposed to be a gorgeous, sunny day, so I’m looking forward to sipping on bubbly with the best of New York!
