DAY 3 – BROOKLYN YOU HAVE MY HEART

Day 3

From Madison, NJ we drove to Brooklyn. For some reason, I expected Brooklyn to be grungy and a little scary but it was quite the opposite (at least the area we were in). OMG, Brooklyn, it was love at first bite of a duck wing. We started at the Smorgasbord. The food options were AMAZING! I tried duck, coconut (yes, I have tried coconut before but never in such a fun way) and Lumpia (I know random, I just couldn’t decide and it sounded delicious).

(At first I felt a little sad about the duck but I just tried not to think about singing rubber ducky to my kids)

Can you see the little mouse door? How fun is that!?

The thing I loved about Brooklyn so much was the feeling I had while there. Everyone was dressed like they had their own fashion blog and the shopping was awesome! A lot of flea shopping with handmade jewelry and several boutiques with unique clothing. I felt safe and it was just a cool place. My purchase while in Brooklyn was a pair of cloth Dr. Martens. It’s funny because when  I was in Junior High/ High School, my sisters and I owned pairs of Doc’s but got rid of all of them and now they are back!? Fashion is funny. They are adorable but I have not worn them yet, I think I am waiting for the weather to cool down.

The Dr. Martins are a different look, I am trying to not let them intimidate me and just go for it 🙂

That night, we had tickets to see The Book of Mormon on Broadway. We changed our clothes in the car, yes in the car and we set out for sushi then the show. Wow, the show was AMAZING and hilarious! Definitely a must see, unless you are offended easily, then maybe not…

For the evening, I chose to wear this Wayf faux suede blue dress with Vince Camuto heels and a Stella and Dot necklace. The dress is fun and different than anything else I own (minus the brown faux suede skirt I own but that’s different cause it’s a not the same color and not a skirt, right?). After the show, we went to a rooftop bar for drinks. The night was so fun 🙂 .
