Candy Break

Last weekend he stumbled onto a place called Handsome Dan’s, which had a store in Williamsburg and recently opened up a location in the East Village. He brought me back an order of their Earl Grey cotton candy which was pretty yummy, even though there was only a hint of the earl grey flavor.

I didn’t do much this weekend other than watch soccer (I’m cheering for Spain and the US), but I did venture out yesterday to visit the candy shop. The sun was out in full force so I decided to put another new crop top to the test. I like the little phrase on this one and thought it paired nicely with my black quilted mini. The fit on the tank is loose and the skirt comes up pretty high, so I felt comfortable wearing this crop top out for a bit. In keeping with the casual weekend vibe, I slipped on some silver sneakers and we headed off to the candy store.

It was hard not to load up my bag, but in the end I went with a bunch of sour straws in a variety of flavors. I also ordered a raspberry snow cone, which was the perfect way to cool off in the heat. Having this candy store nearby is pretty dangerous- I know I’m going to want to visit it all the time!

Tell me: What did you get up to this weekend? Are you watching the World Cup?

  • I LOVE that outfit! So cute – I particularly like the quilted texture of the skirt. :) And yay for a new candy store that’s close by.
    No World Cup watching for me, but this weekend I did some cleaning, picked up some new books at the library, and took my dad out for an all-you-can-eat yakiniku buffet lunch!

    • Thank you so much Carrie! Sounds like you had a great weekend and what a nice thing to do for your dad :) What books did you get from the library?

    I spent all weekend packing for our upcoming move and wishing I were doing anything but – especially since the weather was so gorgeous here. I love this whole outfit on you – that skirt is perfect for pairing with a crop top!

    • Oh gosh, packing is the worst! Thanks so much Courtney :)

  • This was my towns annual festival so I was there most of the time. Lots of food, music, and family traditions.

    Love your new little crop top, it’s perfect with the high waisted skirt.

    • That sounds like so much fun! I saw a few of your instagrams from the weekend and it looked lovely :) Thank you Lydia!

  • I don’t really eat candy but Earl Grey cotton candy caught my attention :) I spent the weekend at the movies and doing some chores. Cute look!

    • Thank you Rowena! What movie did you see last weekend?

  • Jenmarie

    That top is too cute! Having a candy shop is dangerous indeed. I love sweets but I rarely eat them.

    • Thank you Jenmarie! I have a huge sweet tooth, so it is very dangerous ;) I’m already thinking about going back this weekend!

  • You look cute! Love the skirt. I’ve been watching the World Cup, supporting England though I’m pretty sure it’s going to be another disappointing year for us!

    • Thank you Saskia! I know a bit how you feel- my main team Spain did rather poorly in the first match. I’m really hoping they can turn it around in their next game today!

  • Cute top! It pairs nicely with your skirt. Over the weekend, I saw a concert, went to a Zumba class and had a family brunch. I didn’t manage to watch any of the World Cup coverage though, but I plan to this week.

    • Thank you Shenneth! Oooo, a concert- that sounds like fun! Who did you see?

  • Eli

    Love this casual chic look on you! You rock it well!!

    • Thanks so much Eli! :)

  • Candy shops are so fun :) Loving this comfy look!

  • Jessica

    I love the ease of this look. That top is adorable, the perfect saying. It would definitely be dangerous for me to live near a candy store. I haven’t bought much in the last week. I spent too much on vacation and am now saving for another vacation in November, so I have to watch my spending.

    • Thank you Jessica :) That makes sense about saving money for vacation! I saw your instagram pictures from your recent vacation and it looked like you were having a really nice time.
