Across the Brooklyn Bridge + A LOVEly Giveaway

I was wearing…
The weather was beautiful yesterday afternoon so Nick and I decided to take a walk over to Brooklyn via the Brooklyn Bridge. It’s been on my bucket list for a while now, along with exploring Dumbo and Brooklyn Heights. Needless to say the views were spectacular – the waterfront area in Dumbo has so many cool eateries, walking paths and stores. We were hungry after our walk so we split a pizza pie and finished off with some homemade ice ream from the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. So yummy!
On hot days I like to keep my jewelry minimal. This gold arrow necklace from Miriam Merenfeld is the perfect accessory because it’s small, dainty and feminine. It’s definitely a piece I can see myself wearing everyday and I love the inscription. Miriam Merenfeld is gifting one of these same necklaces ($150 value) to a Katie’s Bliss reader. This giveaway is open to U.S. readers only and will end July 29th. Good luck!

  6. My favorite go to summer look? That is tricky because of how hot it is in the desert. I like to wear tanks mostly with shorts…but the tanks have to be flowy and usually racer-back. But I do love wearing maxi dresses or jumpers too.

    So glad to see the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory is back up and running! That is such a great area. When I was in NYC a few months ago it was still undergoing repairs from Sandy.
    My go-to summer outfit: crisp white button-down shirts tied at the waist, colorful flowing skirts, and flats or sandal wedges with rope or wood detail on the heel!

  28. My go-to summer look is a bright pair of shorts, a top with a fun print, or on easy days just a white tee. Wedges are always a must.

  29. Maxi dress and flat jeweled sandals. 🙂

    I typically enjoy bold statement necklaces, but this dainty one is perfect! (I agree about minimal jewelry on hot days!)

    My go-to summer look is a floral dress, gold sandals, sparkly studs, and my new favorite cat-eye sunnies.
