Those of you that know me well know that I’m a dreamer. I’m a hopeless romantic, always coming up with ideas and eager to explore new places and plan trips that will probably never happen. However, if there is anyone that can one up me in this area it’s for sure this girl right here, my sweet and fabulous friend Larkin. Lark and I like to joke that Anthropologie is the reason we are friends because when we initially met freshman year at Clemson, Larkin was wearing a shirt from Anthro that I had debated buying for weeks and so when I saw her wearing it I told her I liked her shirt and introduced myself and we have been friends ever since (which is totally ironic now considering I work at Anthropologie)! It’s funny how sometimes you meet people that you instantly share connections with, like maybe an obsession of New York City or a die hard love of Taylor Swift for example, and you just know that you are going to be great friends. Flash forward to today and Larkin and I are preparing to spend a summer in New York City together where we will be chasing our dreams, eating our way throughout Manhattan, and exploring every crevice of the city that we can find. In addition to all of this, we can’t wait to document all of our fun adventures this summer and share them with all of you! 

But until then, take a look at some of these fun pictures we took in our excitement for this summer and to get our creative juices flowing. Whether it’s a NYC sweatshirt, a flower crown, or a tulle skirt, Larkin is a fashionista through and through (I mean her internship this summer is at Oscar de la Renta… need I say more people?) We had a blast bopping around the forrest and an abandoned town close by, taking these photos and dreaming up our summer plans in the city. I hope that these pictures make you just as excited as we are for our adventures and all of the accompanying pictures that are to come while we are in the Big Apple this summer!
