As much I would've loved to be getting away to a beach, I'm excited to spend the Fourth of July in NYC. I live in Long Island City, with a beautiful view of the water, and this year the fireworks will be from the East River, so I'm happy to say that I will have a first class view of the fireworks. Ironically, I very often don't spend enough time in LIC even though I live here. The most interaction I have with the people here is when I go to Crossfit (that is if I make it considering my crazy hours or the fact that I was sick all week. By the way, shoutout to Crossfit Gantry for all the fun challenges that happen when I do go). I can't wait to watch all the dazzling colors and lights from the boardwalk right outside my apartment. This definitely will be new for me. For the longest time, I spent my Fourth of July with my relatives who would light up thousands of dollars of fireworks in the middle of nowhere, Virginia. Now having spent time in the "real world" since February, I'm navigating how to create my own traditions. What are your Fourth of July traditions? Let me know on my instagram @elizabethjosk!
I really wanted this Privacy Please dress. I saw it on Revolve only to see that my size was sold out! So I requested that revolve notify me when it's back in stock. They sent me a restock email which I noticed only two hours later (because of my work email constantly blowing up my personal email often gets lost in the dust), so naturally I freaked out until I realized that not only did Revolve notify me, they put the dress on hold! Now that's customer service. #thanksRevolve. I really love the stripes and think it's a perfect dress for a stroll on the boardwalk. Love how the dress is like kimono meets nautical stripes- a fusion of the east and west.
I paired the dress with a vintage Ferragamo purse handed down to me from my mother and Vince Camuto heels. These heels are actually a summer must have. They're so comfortable and light!
