Summer Fridays 

Is there anythjng better than summer Fridays, anything at all?

Honestly, there really isn’t. I’m lucky that my office let’s us out on Fridays around 3pm during the summer months. Last Friday, me and my work pals Marie & Lexi decided we would take advantage of the beautiful weather and go out after work. We hadn’t had an adventure in awhile, so we were long over due.

We headed over into Chelsea and to the Frying Pan. I had heard a lot about it and have wanted to go for some time, so this was the perfect opportunity. We got there around 4:30 which was great timing. It was filled with enough people but we didn’t have to wait on a long line to get in. If you go– GET THE SANGRIA. We shared a pitcher (or maybe 2) and it was sooo so good.

It was the perfect night of great company, lovely weather, and amazing drinks. Of course when we left we had to take advantage of the  views of the water and take blog pictures :).

Old Navy Floral Dress  (unfortunately the dress is sold out, but since I’m obsessed with the print here are the shorts & maxi skirt versions) || Long Champ Small Tote || Target Sandals (old, similar)

I’m so ready for the weekend. Does the week after a 3 day weekend seem to drag for anyone else, or is it just me?

These photos are from the 4th of July, and I actually switched into my white jeans when I got to my parents’ friend’s house after taking these pictures. It was so darn chilly and rainy! The shorts are so comfy, and I love that they’re “boyfriend” fit. I thought pairing them with this off-red shirt was perfect for the holiday and not too much. Of course I had to use my C. Wonder clutch (RIP) because of it’s blue and red stripes.

SELF Up N Out Studio

This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending SELF Magazine’s Up N Out Studio, held at Spring Studios in Tribeca!

I heard about this awesome weekend from Her Campus Blogger Network, and quickly signed up to reserve my spot! For this weekend, SELF showcased great studio workouts from around the country, including Pure Barre, FlyWheel, Barry’s Bootcamp and many more! I woke up nice and early Sunday morning and headed into the city so I had time to explore the studio and fun vendors that would be there. I arrived around 10:15 but since my 305 Fitness class wasn’t until 11:40 during the “Brunch” session, I had some time to look around before my class. I sampled some smoothies and bars from Premiere Protein, took some photos with Bliss Spa, and chatted with some reps from a bunch of other great companies. I also left with an amazing swag bag filled with goodies from all of these great sponsors.

Now time for the fitness… I had been wanting to try a class with 305 Fitness, so this was a great opportunity (hello free class). I thought it would be just a fun dance class, but it was INTENSE. Filled with lots of cardio and a little bit of toning, it was definitely a great workout. While it’ll be another year until SELF Up N Out Studio pops up again, I encourage you to keep an eye out for when it does! You won’t regret it.
