Whether walking the streets of New York City while home, or exploring Parisian alleys while abroad, one of my favorite hobbies is weekending. By that I mean long days with little on the agenda other than getting to know a city or neighborhood. So often we fill our schedules to the brim with events and tasks, so there’s something refreshing about frolicking without an agenda.

Freddie and I will often find ourselves bopping in and out of museums, stopping for coffee and small plates, shopping, or napping in a park under the clouds. It’s the perfect day in my book, and something I’m eager to do all summer long in NYC.

It’s simply effortless, which is how I like to dress on said weekends. It’s key to take a break from rushed Uber rides and public transportation, I’m all about walkable outfits (still worthy of an Instagram, of course!) that are easy yet elevated. A high-waisted skirt with a flirty top and sandals a la these photos, or a simple dress with interesting accessories.

Weekends exploring were made for wearable looks, which I always turn to Nordstrom for. My forever destination for weekend wear – whether that’s on vacation or at home, they have an inventory full of fresh and modern selects that don’t feel too pushed for blissed out weekend days. The store is as effortless as weekends should be.

Where are you weekending this year? And more importantly, what are you wearing? To shop my picks for weekends in the city, scroll through my selects from Nordstrom below!

I LOVE the Cult Gaia! I’m so in love with anything tortoiseshell!


I love that bag. It seems like it would go with anything.

especially for spring/summer!

I love the entire ensemble! Very nice.

Okay, I’ve just ordered the skirt so thank you for that recommendation because I have been unsuccessful until now with trying to find the perfect summer skirt! Strolling around cities is one of my favorite things to do! Whether in my hometown, or abroad, it’s always a great way to spend one’s time and get to know the city a bit better! Often people feel that they need a set agenda and have to plan what they’re going to do while traveling from head to toe, however, one of the best things to do when traveling is just to explore and stroll around. Stop in places that catch your eye, and pass by ones that don’t. This always makes you feel a bit more like a localer. Also, quick question, have you now moved to NY?


oh yay! love hearing that, I hope you like it as much as I do! Yep, we’re officially New Yorkers now!

Lovely outfit as always, the red blouse is stunning and that bag… the structure and material are really unique!

Love from France xx



I’ll be weekending in my nearby city New Orleans, which is relatively normal for me, but I haven’t gotten bored yet! And I don’t expect to. I’ll be wearing my favorite summer jumpsuit with my lace-up sandals as it is warming up pretty fast here. I love how you paired the top with the buttons to line up with the skirt as well as the tortoise shell details to pull everything together! Have a beautiful weekend weekending!

aw how fun! enjoy your trip xx
