Bell Sleeves in the Big City

Bell Sleeve Top

Hello and happy Sunday people! I'm honestly a little sad to be writing this post because it means I have returned back to Ohio from my spring break in the big apple. It was a really last minute decision to head out there...as in it was all planned about a week before leaving. Major props to my Aunt for figuring out all the flight, hotel and restaurant reservations in such a short time! We stayed on the 15th floor of the Affinia Fifty Hotel that had a beautiful view and champagne awaiting our arrival. Since it was my dad's first time in the city we visited Rockefellar Center, the Flatiron District, Times Square and a few other touristy spots. It's been about 6 years since I've been to NYC so I enjoyed every minute of it!

Now let's talk about this shirt! I am so thankful that Blue Vanilla sent me this gorgeous and elegant bell sleeve top. It's actually an off the shoulder body suit and I cannot even tell you how many compliments I received from it! The elevator guy, random people on the street, store workers, it was a hit! It's definitely a statement piece and the ivory off white color makes it easy to match with everything. This size is a small, I probably could've gone with an extra small only because I have a short torso and the bottom portion of the bodysuit goes a little lower than I'd like. But overall very true to size!

Honestly, I could write a food blog post on every restaurant we went to. The food in New York never fails to blow me away. We enjoyed asian food twice at Tao and Buddakan, Italian at Lavo and domestic fusion at Bobby Flay's Bar Americain. Fantastic line up and I would highly recommend any of them for your next visit!  

City View

Aside from my internship interviews and meetings, there was a lot of time to explore. It was my first time visiting the Top of the Rock and it was breathtaking. Pictures really don't do this city justice! I'm so excited to be moving out here for the summer and sharing all of my new experiences with you. I left a link to this lovely top below, be sure to check out all of Blue Vanilla's  new spring arrivals because they are just adorable!

Lots more NY posts to come beginning in June, until next time!!
