Brandi Melville Distressed Denim Shorts

If you’ve been in a cab in New York recently, you’ve probably seen the See Your City advertisement. Their tagline touts that for visitors, New York City is a vacation of a lifetime; but for the lucky 8 million resident, it’s only a subway ride away. Well I count myself among those lucky 8 million and do sometime think that I don’t see enough of the city. Plus, why let the tourist have all the fun?
Spurred by my brother in law’s visit a few weekends ago, I’ve been doing quite a bit of sight seeing lately. I decided to continue this trend by visiting the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space museum this past Sunday. I can officially say I’ve been been on an aircraft carrier and seen a space shuttle up close — wahoo, that’s two things I can cross off my bucket list.

Outfit Combo: distressed denim shorts from Brandi Melville (find similar here and here), sleeveless top from H&M, gizeh sandals from Birkenstocks, sandals from H&M, bag from Zara (find similar styles here and here), hat from Urban Outfittres.

    This looks so cute and functional! My husband and I are spending this summer on the east coast and plan on making several trips to NYC! I’m adding this museum to our list…please let me know if you have any other recommendations!

      Ali, I highly recommend you check out the “Best of New York” Circle Line cruise. I did that a few weekends ago when my brother in law was out of town, and I LOVED it!
