If you’re into the preppy/classic style, be sure to check out Gap.com. Lately, along with Old Navy, they’ve really stepped up their game, earning a title that’s equivalent to name brands like JCrew and Madewell. Even their website has been updated for a chic and sophisticated feel.
Here are some of my recent purchases from them (These are collective):
I love the detail in this white, embroidered top ($27)
As you can see, most of their clothing features a fresh range of light colors, which is great for summertime. Gap also really likes to use lace, stripes, and classic styles. Pairing a simple pair of jeans and a blouse from gap calls for an effortless outfit, no matter what season.
*My light wash, ripped jeans are also from Gap. I scored them for only $12!
Last Sunday, my mom and I had an exciting and fun-filled day in Manhattan. First, we went a brief college tour of the Macaulay Honors Program at CUNY. At first, I didn’t know much about the school and its prestige. But as current students and former alumni expressed their gratitude towards their professors and classes, I realized how much of a tight-knit community this college offers. I’m definitely considering it for the future.
After, we walked around Central Park, where a Puerto Rican festival was going on. Since NYC never gets boring, there are ALWAYS events happening. Today, there was a barbecue festival in Madison Square Park in the Flatiron District. Even though I’m not the biggest fan of meat, I still got to experience a juicy pork-pulled burger.
People were scattered everywhere on the grassy lawns of the park, holding their drinks and munching on ribs and burgers. This is the true embodiment of NY: loud, crowded, and HUNGRY.
