Weekend NYC Style








(Volcom cargo jacket, Stylestofia tee, Hallelu shorts)

Wherever I go, this washed green cargo jacket by Volcom is always with me. I love how I can pretty much throw it on over anything and it instantly adds a laid back vibe to any look. It's my go-to piece for the weekends! I wore this out during a day out with my family around Central Park. My sister is visiting from Philadelphia and my parents flew in from LA for a short trip. It was so nice getting to all be together again. We are super close so it's great to be able to share a gorgeous day in the city with them. They came at a perfect time too, the weather has been amazing. Sunny with a cool breeze. I find myself being out and about all the time in nyc, getting everywhere on foot. No need for me to workout now, I think I've been getting more than enough exercise. Been really enjoying the weekends here, but I am beyond excited that it is Monday! :)

I'm thoroughly crushing on this ensemble. Love the crocheted shorts with the more boyish jacket and top! I'm really happy to hear that the weather's been treating you well there, and that you got to bond with your family too :)

Song Anh said...

Although it's very subtle, but the sheer fabric on the top is really great! It really gives that top more interest. Lovely lovely ring by the way! Aww it's so great to have your family no matter where you go! Have a great time with your family!
