NYC Summer Weekend Guide

NYC Summer Weekend Guide

After many weeks of work, Michelle and I are so excited to finally be sharing our NYC summer staycation/vacation weekend guides! With a combined focus on two New York essentials, food and fashion, Michelle and I joined our expertises (her: restaurants, me: fashion), along with our mutual love for food, into one stylishly, delicious summer guide. Whether you live here and just need a staycation, or you're jetting in for a quick weekend getaway, we so hope you enjoy my guide below and Michelle's guide, "THE Foodie's Guide to A Stylish Weekend in NYC", both loaded with New York food, fashion and fun!
