Brooklyn Glow


The days are getting so short!  This past weekend the Boyfriend and I hit up Brooklyn for some flea market bargains and delicious food. We topped off the day with a walk down the Promenade and watched the sun set over Manhattan.  It was a wonderful day, if only a little bit windy!

The boyfriend also helped me pick out my outfit for the day.  I'm loving this skirt because it's warm and it has pockets!  I'm a sucker for a dress or skirt with pockets. It will probably only be another week before I have to wear this skirt with some thick tights, it's getting cold here!



Be sure to take a walk on the promenade if you come to visit Brooklyn!

  6. You look so chic! I don't know what it is about pockets in skirts or dresses either because I never use them, but man do I love them.

  11. Hi there Vicki! Thanks for your visit/comment to my blog the other day. :)
    What a lovely fall look! Love that picture where you're sitting on the bench looking to the side.
    Can you believe I had never heard of Charming Charlie's until a few weeks ago? In my defense, there's only one in Miami, and it's brand new. I haven't been yet, but I've only heard good things about it and now that I see this necklace here I have great proof.
