Eyelet Top: Topshop  (wearing a US 6)| Denim: 7FAM ℅ | Shoes: Club Monaco (on sale!) | Bag: Chloe Nile (medium)

I wore this look over the weekend for a date night/father’s day dinner with Keith. Instead of going to our favorite sushi spot, we opted to try a new place that’s been on the list and sadly, were pretty disappointed.

I’ve said it before, but for those in or visiting Brooklyn, check out Sushi Katsuei. Incredible food for a decent price, considering the quality you get. For those who live or frequently visit NYC, what are your favorite go-to restaurants? I’ve written about my favorites here (and in Brooklyn), but it might be time for an updated list!

    Love the lace detailing on the sleeves. It makes a chic look.


  • Fatou Diaw

    This is so chic! I love it.

  • MaGda

    Love it!

    Cosme in flatiron is a consistent favorite. I had several of my anniversary dinners at Babbo and have a soft spot for it. I used to live in Williamsburg for 7 years and Sweet water grill and Antica Pesa were my go-tos. For sushi Momoya (chelsea location) is super solid for well priced easy date spot.

  • Kristina

    This top is so chic, love the whole look. Also the pair of denims looks really cool.
    I’ll definitely try your favorite sushi restaurant the next time I’m in NYC.

    Hi Helena,
    Lovely, fresh look. Curious about the denim. It’s an interesting ‘mom’ jean look. What are your thoughts about it’s shelf life? I love skinnys and flares – high waisted and mid. I did try something at Madewell based on Kerrently blogger post (she looked adorable in them). They were hilariously hideous on me. Made my booty look like one big, flat movie screen. I said something about it to the sales person and she said, “Yeah, that’s how the girls like their butts now. Flat.” Seriously. What a waste of all those squats and lunges. 🙂

      Hey Francine,

      hahaha! “what a waste of all of those squats and lunges..” that cracked me up. As far as the shelf line, I’m torn. I don’t see them going anywhere anytime soon! although, years ago I loved a low-rise and now I cannot even fathom wearing a pair like that again. I think mom jeans are sort of a classic, but they’ll be modified and tweaked with each season. Definitely not for everyone! I love them, but my husband, not so much.

    What a lovely outfit, girlie! I love the eyelet details on the sleeve and those cognac sandals you’ve paired with it, such a perfect summer outfit! I’m so sorry that you weren’t pleased with the restaurant. I hate when I try some place new only to be disappointed. My mom lives in BK, so we’re there a lot, I’ll have to keep Sushi Katsuei in mind! Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great week ahead!
