A Casual City Day

H&M Jeans, Coat from TJ Maxx, Keith’s Burberry Scarf, Zara Boots and Sweater.
A super casual (and warm) outfit to meet up with my friend Inna for brunch. We went to Balthazar, which happens to be one of my favorite brunches in the city. They have the absolute best creme brulee, and I normally don’t even love creme brulee all that much. After brunch we did a little shopping and checked out a nearby tattoo spot.



  • Welcome to my jungle

    I love Balthazar!
    And the color of that shirt is so cool!
