Brooklyn Food Festival

Polka-Dot-Button-Down-+-Jeans This was a fun-filled weekend- my good friend from high school came to visit me from Virginia. On Saturday we hopped on the L to go to Smorgasburg. It was my first time this season and I couldn’t wait to sample some of the delicious food there!

East-River-Park Of course I had to eat some of my favorites, donuts from Dough and hot dogs from Asia Dog. After we’d had our fill of food, we grabbed a bottle of wine and headed to a friend’s apartment nearby.

Pouring-Red-Wine The weather was quite nice, so we took our drinks and headed up to her rooftop. I’m so excited for warmer weather and more afternoons spent enjoying the sun on rooftops.

  • I like food. I have a feeling this would be something I’d be into. There’s still so many cafe/restaurants/food places in the city that I want to try!

    • Yes, Smorgasburg is so great! There are a ton of different food stalls set up, so you can try lots of different foods in one place.

    I love Smorgasburg…I’ve only been to the one in Williamsburg once but my fiance and I frequent the one in Brooklyn Bridge Park since we can walk over there. One of the highlights of the summers in BK. Anyway you look adorable. I love the polka dotted top and the jacket. I came close to buy a jacket like yours from LOFT.


    • The Williamsburg one is just one stop on the L for me, so that’s the one I usually go to :) I agree- I’m so it’s started up again this season.

      Thanks Heather- I actually was at LOFT on Sunday and I think I saw the jacket you’re talking about!

  • This looks like so much fun! I can’t believe I’ve never heard of this! Next year, I definitely need to go! Also, love your outfit!

    • Oh you should totally go! It happens every weekend until like October/November, I think. It’s in Williamsburg on Saturdays and Brooklyn Bridge Park on Sundays. Thanks Sara :)

  • sounds amazing! oh how i would love to go!

    • Definitely a fun thing to do if you’re ever in NYC :)

  • Sounds so much fun! And as always, I just love your outfit! That polka dot blouse is perfect!

    • Thanks so much Maru! I love this top too. I’d been eyeing it for a while and I was so happy when I snagged it on sale!

    There’s that cute jacket again! ;) I am glad you had a good weekend! I love the idea of roof tops, it must be amazing at night time.

    • It was so nice to sit outside and enjoy the weather on her rooftop. I don’t have access to a rooftop in my building so I’ll definitely have to take advantage of hers again :)

  • You’re so cute! I love that polka dot top paired with the jacket. Sounds like a fun time! Anything involving food sounds great ;)

    • Thank you Natalie! :)

  • looks like it was amazing! fun!

    What a fun day! I’m so excited about all the things to do here on the East Coast. Not that we don’t have stuff like this out West, but I feel like there is an abundance of things to do here. :) Love your outfit, you are stunning!

    • Yes, especially in NYC I know there’s always a ton of stuff to do :) Thank you Gentri Lee!

  • I still haven’t been and it always looks like so fun and yummy! I’ll have to try when my ankle is 100% again. Your outfit is adorable and I’m loving that blush jacket!

    • Thank you Victoria! Agreed- I’m so ready for more afternoons on rooftops :)

    • Thank you Alexis Grace!

  • So cute–I love this outfit. And yes to rooftop bars. They are a summer institution!

  • Aw, fun! That reminds me of the Taste of Chicago, it’s a huge outdoor food festival the city puts on every summer. I went one year and it was mad crowded but a cool experience. Chicagoans have some very adventuous culinary inclinations. ;)

    • That sounds like something I would enjoy too! I need to visit Chicago again- I haven’t been since I was a kid.

  • Love your outfit! I have never been to a food festival but it sounds right up my alley! Kinda jealous :)

    • Thank you Danielle! :)

  • A festival of food? sounds wonderful! I saw your instagrams – looked pretty tasty! Love the mint and dots combo as well, so cute!
