Blushing Bow Bridge // Central Park, NYC

 Skirt: H&M // Top: Topshop // Shoes: DIY Vegan Louboutin Heels {I followed this tutorial} // Bag: Stella McCartney

It's my last week here at college in New York, and just looking at these pictures I took in the first week is bittersweet to me.  I've fallen in love with this city, even though I've only seen a glimpse of it, and I hope that in a few years I'll return here for school again.  

I fell in love with this skirt when I saw it at H&M on 5th Avenue.  It seemed like such a princess moment, and it made me feel amazing wearing it.  My friend actually agreed that I looked like one of those jellyfish from Finding Nemo in my skirt.  I wanted to go for a haute couture kind of shoot, so we strolled through Central Park to Bow Bridge, one of the most beautiful sights in Manhattan.  

I always loved the look of Christian Louboutin heels, but all of his shoes are leather, which I don't wear.  I decided to make my own red bottomed heels with a simple pair of Marc Fisher heels and some red paint.  Call it tacky all you want, but I think that being able to obtain that look without harming animals or spending a buttload of cash is amazing.

Columbia Summer // Blue Plaid


Pretty much sums up how I feel about this whole experience.
Dress: Jack Wills // Shoes: BC Footwear {love these ones too} // Bag: Stella McCartney // Bracelet: Kiel James Patrick

How gorgeous is this campus?  Columbia is honestly a dream come true and I'm having a great time.  Thank you for all your kindness and well-wishes on my last post and Instagram photos.  If you want to see pictures from all over NYC, feel free to follow along at @juliacmazzucato if you aren't already.  

This tartan plaid dress is from one of my favorite brands ever, Jack Wills.  I recently discovered this British label and I've been absolutely loving their classic, streamlined and slightly preppy pieces.  This dress is my summer favorite right now and I love the fit and flare silhouette.  I don't have too much to write on this post, mainly because I've got notes to take and assignments to do for my classes, but this is a little mini-update.  As always, if you have recommendations for anything on Manhattan, please let me know!

Fifth Avenue Ingenue

Top: Madewell {similar} // Skirt: Urban Outfitters {similar} // Flats: J. Crew {similar} // Bag: Celine 'Nano' dupe by Dailylook

I'm writing this on day four in New York City.  Despite some occasional twinges of homesickness, I'm loving this beautiful city.  Manhattan is full of adventures at every turn.  These pictures are from 5th Avenue, right by the Met and Central Park, on one of my first times exploring outside of Morningside Heights, the area where my campus is.  I can't wait to share more pics with you all!

I know that I can't really give a full list of favorite things in the city quite yet.  I found two amazing and vegan-friendly spots for food in the city- I absolutely love Sweetgreen salad bar and Souen Macrobiotic restaurant.  Tomorrow I'm visiting Yale University's campus, and this weekend I'm going to try and hit up the Met and possible do some shopping.  What are your plans this weekend?  And if you have any recommendations in Manhattan, please let me know!
