It goes without saying that living in New York City comes with tons of perks, one of them being the abundance of culture at our fingertips. On the downside, having so many options at the ready often makes you put things off knowing that you can visit the sights any time you please, which usually means never ending up seeing certain things due to getting caught up in life stuff. Another perk (which can actually be a drawback at times, but let's stay focused) is that everyone you know will want to come visit you and take advantage of all this culture you take for granted as a blasé city dweller, thus forcing you to finally revel and marvel in what makes this place truly unparalleled.
Case in point: having my brother over this past weekend meant exploring new haunts and touring things I hardly ever get to see. I was finally able to check the Frick Collection off of my never-ending NYC to-do list. This place did not disappoint and was every bit the fascinating, interesting, beautiful exhibit I hoped it would be -- I highly recommend it if you ever find yourself if those necks (far better than the Guggenheim - oh yes I did).
It was a perfect spring day, the kind that doesn't allow you to be grumpy, and dressing adequately for gallery hopping and Central Park strolling was of utmost importance. Casual, practical and dare I say cute. How obsessed are we with this Beyonce-approved Suburban Riot sweatshirt, by the way? More on that another time...
