Back to the city and back to reality. On the go with a (very dirty) Americano in one hand and an iCal I’m not yet sure I am ready for in the other. After spending some time, under the sun, upstate, I’m in full-on Summer mode and can’t wait to grab some drinks al fresco with friends, later today. Since returning from a weekend away left me to play ultimate catch up with work, there’s hardly enough time to read a book, drink morning coffee without answering emails, or stop to stand under the sun, let alone make multiple outfit changes in a day. Without a chance to run home and slide into something more comfortable for dinner or drinks, my idea of readying myself for a night out is putting on a little rouge, adding a layer like this vest or a moto jacket, and slipping into a pair of heels to stomp the block in.
For the days that feel never-ending, the probability of having to go straight from work to play is high. Who knows, maybe the hot date you’ve been waiting for will give you a call and ask to take you for oysters and rose. Maybe your girlfriends all caught a case of the “summer Friday’s” too. And, as soon as the clock strikes 5, the group text lights up with questions about finding the best, cheapest, closest happy hour along the L train. In this city, it’s all always possible and a girl just has to be ready for just about anything. Wouldn’t want to miss out on that hot date, now would you?
I’ve partnered with Victoria’s Secret PINK to share a little secret of mine. For long days that turn into adventurous nights, I rely on a little lace to get by. Perfect for a summer night, the Date Collection is fun enough for drinks al fresco with the girls, and flirty enough to get cozy next to your beau for a dinner date, drinks to follow. Keep up with my looks now by following #DateWithPINK.
