Irene has come and gone! The city suffers with scattered fallen trees and some train lines still down, but other than that, there is barely a sign that a hurricane came through here. Today was absolutely gorgeous, a perfect day to return to normalcy.

My very first day back in NYC, I came back to my apartment, ready to start the new school year with all my luggage and belongings. I walked into my unfinished bedroom to find the most amazing array of generosity had come in the mail, and these two pieces from Astars Womens and Rebecca Minkoff were staring at me, making me weak in the knees.

I need a second to focus on the bag. If there's a brand that is 100% worth any price paid for its pieces, it's Rebecca Minkoff. The QUALITY is so fabulous: the design shape, the attention to detail, the quality of the leather... everything is perfect. This bag is kind of magic as well, it hangs flat, but even when you have it stuffed with large items such as, I don't know, an SLR camera, it always appears to be flat and far from bulky. The vintage inspiration of the design is like the chicer sister of what you would inherit from your grandma's closet, absolutely wonderful with the right amount of edge with the studs.

I was happy to throw on the cardigan as it cooled down, it provided the right amount of movement and ventilation for the summer weather, yet was heavy enough to make for the perfect cover-up as dinnertime approached.

Tomorrow is the serious start of classes and I have to say, this summer went by quickly. Tomorrow is the start of a new chapter, and I'm totally gearing for new experiences.
