What a better way to enjoy the summer than walking bare feet on the beach, feeling the hot sand between your toes; wearing your brightest swimsuit once you have somewhat of a tan; eating delicious ice creams (this one is from pop bar in Manhattan. Absolute must try!); eating fresh lobster rolls and sipping on a margarita by the marina. Gotta love the summertime! What have you been up to this summer? x

Cape May

I love to get in the car and simply drive away sometimes. Last Saturday was the perfect day as it felt like a beautiful Spring day in New York. We decided to head south to Cape May. We got lunch at The Lobster House by the Marina, walked around town and along the beach, saw the lighthouse and ended the day on the Atlantic City boardwalk. Such a lovely day!

J’adore prendre la voiture et juste partir à l’aventure parfois. Samedi dernier était la journée parfaite avec ce beau soleil de début de printemps. Nous avons décidé de partir vers le sud de New York, à Cape May au bord de l’eau. Nous nous sommes arrêté manger à The Lobster House sur le port, baladé en ville et sur la plage, vu le fard et avons fini la journée sur la promenade d’Atlantic City. Une belle journée!

It’s been snowing in New York for the past week and even if the city looks absolutely beautiful, it’s soooo cold outside! I love to go downtown on Saturdays. Shop, get a coffee and walk around but in this cold, a girl’s gotta be prepared! These animal print IKKII boots are the perfect combination between a snow boot that will keep your feet warm and an it-accessory that will make any outfit stand out. I absolutely adore them! They are even more comfy than my UGGs :) What do you guys think?

Il neige à New York depuis une semaine et même si la ville recouverte de blanc est magnifique, il fait super froid! Le samedi, j’aime aller downtown faire du shopping, prendre un café ou juste me balader. Mais avec ce froid, il vaut mieux être bien emmitouflé! Ces bottes de chez IKKII* en imprimé léopard sont la combinaison parfaite entre l’après-ski qui garde les pieds bien au chaud et l’accessoire mode qui va pimenter une tenue. Je les adore! Elles sont d’ailleurs encore plus confortable que mes UGG :) Qu’en pensez-vous?
