Holy Bruce Wayne, Batman

The title of this post really has nothing at all to do with it, I just heard it on Gossip Girl and it made me laugh really hard. I think it had to do with Chuck Bass renouncing his Chuck Bass-iness, can you imagine him without his sassy-ness? (Yes that was meant to rhyme) I also thought it would be appropriate because this post is about spending time with my friends Ida and Brianna. Ida also watches GG and when we first became friends last spring there was major bonding over our mutual hatred for Little J (I'm so happy I haven't had to see her raccoony face yet this season).
Making cute faces with Ida
Last Friday night Brianna and Ida and I had a roof picnic with hamburgers and a blue concoction called a "Titanic Fishbowl" that matched Brianna's lagoon colored locks perfectly. There were even alphabet gummy candies swimming around in it. Nineties classics were blasted and scratchy on a shower and we talked about how the colors for the lights on the Empire State Building are chosen. Of course we talked about boys and jobs and last weekend's adventures but mostly we just enjoyed the last heat of summer and that burst of energy and excitement you can only get on a Friday night after a long week of work.
These are two of my favorite girls in New York. No, the whole world.
At the start of the picnic with our Pop's burgers and crazy blue drink
Brianna and Ida, making faces and hiding from the intense flashBrianna is checking out the view of Manhattan while I look spooky in the candlelight"K" gummy for Kallie! Nick got one too but I don't think he was quite as excitedAnd the night went on and on until we ran out of blue Titanic and abandoned our picnic
H&M top, 90's Gap velvet shorts (I found them in a bag in my attic, I am so lucky because the Madewell ones are a little out of my price range for now), BP black flats, Hue tights
Later in the night some other friends showed up to join us before making our way out in Brooklyn or in our case crossing under the BQE to grab drinks at Union Pool. Its a little skeevy but its close enough that we can run back and forth between Ida's apartment and the bar. Plus, they have a taco truck inside the deck area.
On Sunday I slept quite a lot before we headed out to get things for another picnic. It was a long night. This time we sat in a park and enjoyed the sun, lounging around and going over the night. It was a perfect Saturday afternoon, with baseball games behind us, cute puppies, and delicious berries.

  2. Your friend has awesome blue hair! Also, your blue drank (haha!) looks pretty tasty! I love the idea of rooftop picnics! Too bad California doesn't really offer that as an option. :( Your sunny day picnic dress is real cute too! :)

  9. Btw, thanks for your comment on my America post. I find that I end up defending myself and where I come from wherever I go. Now that I'm outside the US, I'm just generally defending an entire nation that I haven't seen half of. But when I'm in the country, I find myself standing up for my state. Just like you say people assume you're a rude NYer, people assume I'm a country bumpkin from the Midwest. I was actually told once, "You're a lot more cultured than I expected someone from Minnesota to be." (hate to break it to you, but person who said that was a NYer haha). However barely anyone here knows where Minnesota is so at least I'm not having that argument. It gets difficult to be a spokesperson for any region though, lots of pressure put on you to say and do the right thing as a representative of an area.

  10. Ha, Union Pool! We have probably passed each other a few times over the years.

    Reading your comment about the vintage yellow bike made me squeak, because the whole reason I got into bikes was from a dream of a shiny yellow three speed back in 2006. I woke up and have been a bike lover ever since. I have an SE Draft Lite, pretty much that black one with the white fork that you see all over Williamsburg ;) At least the chance of it getting stolen is lower?

  19. Nice article you got here. I'd like to read something more concerning this matter. The only thing it would also be great to see here is a few pics of some devices.
