Outfit: Brooklyn VIews

 This past Sunday was a pretty glorious one. It left me so worn out that when I tried to write this post Sunday evening I just fell asleep instead. But now it’s Wednesday and I’m finally recovered enough from the sunshine and sweat inducing heat  to share a bit about my day. 
When you look at New York from afar or as a visitor the city seems like such a huge place. Then you move in settle down and realize that while the city may be big you really only go to a few neighborhoods on a regular basis. Since moving into my new apartment which is 5 minutes from work I started realizing that I basically only ever went to SoHo, Greenwich Village (aka NYU), and West Village (with some occasional jaunts to the East Village for bagels). And while I love my daily routine there is so much of the city that I still haven’t seen. 
So on Sunday a friend and I jumped on the L train and headed over to Brooklyn and I realized that a) I actually really like Brooklyn and b) the borough feels empty compared to lower Manhattan. I needed a break from the constantly busy streets in SoHo and since a real vacation wasn’t a possibility exploring a new neighborhood seemed like the best option. 
The day started with brunch (like all Sundays should) at Sweet Chick. And let me tell you, I swear to god I’ve never had better eggs benedict. After recovering from our food comas my friend and I spent the day wandering the neighborhood. She clearly had some idea of where we were walking but I paid zero attention to the street signs. We were always hopping in and out of cute vintage shops and stopped in at the Brooklyn Flea Market where we picked up fresh lemonade (see why this day was so perfect?). 
I left the day with an incredibly full stomach, a bit of a darker tan, and the realization that I have a lot more of this city to see. While I’m not leaving anytime soon, seeing some of my favorite bloggers and friends leave the city has inspired me to make the most of it while I’m still here.
