A Magical Night






(Volcom tee, Vintage trousers, Wanted flats, Moni Moni handbag)

I swear New York is magical at night. One of my favorite things to do after the sun sets is walk the Brooklyn Bridge. I always prefer to walk anywhere in the city rather than take the subway. And the views from the bridge are absolutely stunning. Literally, I will never get tired of seeing the endless clusters of light from either end of the bridge. It's one place I make sure to take my friends to when they visit me. My sister was in town and so we made our regular visit to my favorite Vietnamese Sandwich joint in Greenwich before head to Washington Square Park, which always seems to have something fun to see every night (talk about beating congas and dancing!). Ending the night with a walk on the Brooklyn Bridge seemed like the only healthy option that night after that meal hehe! Now it's become our ritual. To make life easy, I wore one of my favorite tees by Volcom. This is another piece I guiltily wear to bed and go out in! It's just so soft, comfy, and has the greatest dolman shape and side pocket. I wore it with vintage trousers and of course my night staple, a dark vampy plum lip. Just a little something easily thrown together for a perfect night in the city.

The dark lip color gives you this beautiful, mysterious aura. Much like the gorgeous NYC evening scenery! And love that the Volcom tee is such a comfy go-to piece.

pretty much agree the plum (or deep purple) lip is a nighttime staple. it just screams drama. and i need those giant ball lights in the top photo - they're so ridiculously old NY movie glamour.
