Plaid Co-ord in Central Park











This plaid co-ord is everything. I found it at a local boutique called Cliche, the day before I left for NYC and knew immediately it had to go in my suitcase for the trip. It's a bit sixties, definitely has a preppy overtone with the plaid and the matchy-matchy element, and all around it's just a perfect fit for moi. And so is Central Park, you guys. I love this beautiful place and saw a different angle of it on this year's stroll than last year's. It's such a huge park it's fun to explore a little bit at a time.

One of the highlights of this day in NYC was seeing Naeem Khan from the second row. The looks were gorgeous. These 4 were my favorites but I could easily be sharing every single one. I love the hue of the yellow dress and how the fabric moved like ripples in a pond. And don't get me started on powder blue… Such a gorgeous color and I love the whimsical nature of this lacey dress. Which one is your favorite of these?

Embellished Florals || Upper East Side








I wore this dress on one of my favorite days of my NYC trip. It started it out with a blow-out at Dream Dry with my roomies Tara, Kate, & Adriana. Then we met up with Chelsea for brunch at SaraBeth's on the Upper East Side. I had what was likely the world's most delicious Eggs Benedict. Then we headed over to the Kendra Scott showroom and admired the gorgeous new collections. 

The day continued with a classic tourist move, a visit to Time Square. I don't care how cliche it is, it's still quite astounding to see in person.
Next we went to Fashion Palette, which was a showcase of 8 Australian designers. There was so much talent, the looks were stunning. The day finished up with Nanette Lepore's after party. We got to dance with the lady of the night herself. She was super sweet! And the view from the venue, the rooftop of the Dream Hotel, you guys… so breathtaking! K, I need to stop talking about my trip now it's making me miss it too much! Might just have to hop on a plane and fly straight out there right this moment. But this time I'm bringing Patrick, Mint, and my entire shoe collection with me. Because let's face it that's probably all that would fit in my hypothetical NYC apartment.

Ladies Golfwear: Two Outfits Ready for the Course













I'm really excited about this post! It's a bit of a departure from traditional Ruby Girl posts to share a bit about how I like to do sportswear. Since marrying Patrick, golf has slowly become a large part of our life, at least in the warm(ish) months. Patrick is an avid golfer, as in he started practicing at the age of 3. I was hesitant toward the sport, but warmed up to it quickly once I learned how peaceful it really can be. A warm day, riding on the golf cart, a good read in my lap, a nice cold lemonade, and as always lots of laughs and good conversation with the guy riding along with me.

Parisian Mod









Every time I go to NYC, I come back with another favorite spot in the city. This time, it's Alice's Tea Cup. I first heard of it from Carly of College Prepster's list of top places to visit. Adriana, Chelsea, & I stumbled on the place while traipsing around the Upper East Side and decided to head in. Best decision we ever made. It was so darling, and the pumpkin scones people. Oh my goodness, I wish I still had the other half of it right now. I mean wow. While I'm dreaming of magical pumpkin scones this morning, I'm also hoping you have an excellent weekend ahead of you!

Milkmaid Braids, Beaded Tulle & rewardStyle




Every girl needs a princess dress or two. With a little (or a lot) of glitter, tulle, sparkles, or beading. Save it for a birthday, a theme party, or New Year's Eve. Or wear it on a Tuesday or a bad day or a rainy day. Or you know, "just because" is always reason enough. Which was why I wore mine in NYFW for the rewardStyle party. I paired it with a black and white striped clutch to add a graphic element, a big ol statement necklace, and some nude pumps.






 



The rewardStyle party took place on the rooftop of my hotel for the trip, The Empire. The place was absolutely packed with bloggers from all over who are part of the Rewardstyle fam. It's always a bit trippy to meet in real life the people whose life & style journeys you follow along on Instagram and Twitter. One person I was delighted to make the acquaintance of was Miss Mackenzie Horan of Design Darling. She and I are pictured above in our matching blues. 

  

I also met (and danced with… obvi.) Michelle of Pink Bubbly Shop. She was so sweet and I just loved hearing about her travels to Europe and the East Coast. 

A big thanks to rewardStyle for putting together this incredible event! It's a treat to meet the beauties behind the company, all of the bloggers, and also the representatives from some of the rewardstyle brands and designers.
