a monday pretty: a new york summer, 44 years ago.

This series of photos capturing NYC summer street style '69 has been floating around the interwebs lately. These fierce ladies (and gent) put my "Ho hum, which pencil skirt should I wear today..." summer style to shame. #takingnotes

NYC frolicking.

When I first meet someone, I usually manage to somehow wiggle into the conversation the fact that I used to live in New York. It's an immediate snippet of conversation, right up there with "No, not like the Disney character, like the city in Italy." {insert internal eye roll} {okay, external} For a million reasons too numerous to enumerate, I am so, so, so in love with NYC. A few of our friends tried to convince us to visit the city for the Fourth of July holiday, and I was *this* close to leaping onto the next Acela. Alas, it wasn't meant to be, so I found myself clicking through some photos from my last Manhattan visit. A few of my favorites...

Laduree, officially the prettiest place on earth.
The perfectly styled Kipling, who absolutely refuses to be photographed in full. I'll get you someday, my pretty!! Also, I'll take one of everything you're wearing. Lovely, as usual.
ABC kitchen.
The Met's enchanting Decorative Arts galleries, one of my favorite places in the city.
The best brunch is at Norma's. Get yourself there immediately. 
THE Ren McKnight with the chic Jessi. Beware, an hour with this GQ writer/makeup artist duo will leave you wretchedly aware of your own uncoolness.
Geeked out over a tour of GQ's offices, but left slightly heartbroken after discovering that Ryan Gosling does not, in fact, roam the halls in his shirtless, Hey Girl glory. Luckily, it's a requirement to be good looking and well dressed at GQ {or so it would seem}, so, you know, I was fine.
Caught a glimpse of teenVOGUE across the hall, the magazine to which I may or may not have subscribed until I was, oh, 23 or so...
Until next time, New York!
