Gramercy Park is quickly becoming one of my favorite neighborhoods in the city. Now that the weather is nice I’ve been trying to walk as much as possible and lucky for me, many of my outings have been taking to or through Gramercy Park. It’s a really small, quiet area encompassing just a few blocks around the actual park. If you take a stroll down Lexington Ave to 21st street you’ll find no shortage of gorgeous townhouses, clean sidewalks and Instagram-worthy streets. I can’t get enough!
Big thanks to Kendall for taking these photos!
I was wearing…
white tie-front dress (under $75, comes in yellow too!) | BaubleBar drop earrings (just $34!) | pink sunglasses | GiGi New York clutch c/o (comes in a few colors!) | affordable nude pumps (mine are Christian Louboutin) | Clinique lip liner + YSL Beauty stain
What I like most about this white tie-front dress (besides the under $75 price tag) is the adjustable straps! So often I have to return dresses because of loose straps that just fall off my shoulders when I can’t fill out the bust 😳 ) I wear white dresses a lot in the summer (see here and here) and this one is a great closet staple!
Now back to my New York love rant…I never thought I’d love the east side of Manhattan as much as I do. After over two years in the West Village it was tough giving up the close proximity to Chelsea, Soho and Tribeca (ugh, we were so spoiled.) But I have to say where we live now really is so much more convenient and central. Nick can get to work in Midtown in minutes and anywhere I need to go west or downtown is just a straight shot. I’ve also had so much fun exploring all of Manhattan’s east side neighborhoods like Gramercy Park, the Upper East Side and the East Village. There really are gems everywhere in this city and no neighborhood should be underestimated!
