NYC Day #3 Recap!

Second to last NYC post coming at ya this sunny Thursday afternoon! LITERALLY THOUGH, so hot outside here in Michigan for September! It's nuts. 90 degrees.

Anyway.. I'm already missing New York so much! I got an extreme case of the travel bug once I got back home and looking back at all these photos makes me want book like a million trips asap!

So our 3rd day in NYC was probably my most busy of the 4 full days we were there! We woke up around 5:30am and got ready and then headed out in a taxi to the Brooklyn Bridge. We just totally wanted to get some cool typical NY photo shoots on our trip and this location was by far one of my favorites! This first look was taken in Dumbo, NY. This little street is famous in lots of movies and tv shows, aka - Gossip Girl! I'm pretty sure this is the Manhattan Bridge though. 

I wore a vintage style silky material dress from Nasty Gal paired with a hat and heels. This specific hat I think I wore everyday on the trip.. NO SHAME!

We then changed outfits and took a quick walk over to the Brooklyn Bridge-

Goll, not sure if I'm biased because these are my photos but.. I think they came out super awesome! It's not everyday you see massive bridges like these in Michigan, so the bridge + that skyline view + this pattern mixed outfit just equals pure magic!

I mixed a boohoo printed dress with an oversized fit blazer from Nasty Gal. 
I of course added all my favorite accessories and these trendy black studded booties!

After our shoots, we headed back to the hotel where I then only had about 45 minutes to freshen up for my meeting with essence makeup! I quickly called an uber and then headed across town!

For those who are new to my blog, hey hey hey! If you haven't been following me for very long you may not have known that about two years ago I was apart of the launch of essence makeup in the USA and Canada! I was one of only a few stylists who promoted and took pictures wearing essence makeup! I was featured in Ulta and Target stores all around the country! It was such an incredible experience and had always kept close ties to those I worked with while working on that project!

I was finally able to make it to the essence offices and met a few of the lovely people behind the brand! We hung out, ate delicious food, and played with tons of new products that will be launching this fall! I even was able to be apart of the behind the scenes of naming a few of the upcoming product palettes!  

This view! The entire essence office we were in had this epic view!
I couldn't resist snapping a few photos!

After my meeting, I headed back to the hotel to hangout with the girls before we headed out for the night, of course taking a few photos, then grabbing a bite to eat! We ended up at the Butchers Daughter and then did a little shopping afterwards!

That's a wrap for day #3!
Stay tuned for my final NYC day #4 recap!
