today’s wear this there is kind of a 2fer – two cafes for the price of one. we’re headed back to new york today but this time to a couple of my favorite brooklyn neighborhoods — DUMBO (an acronym of ‘Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass’) and Williamsburg, also along the waterfront. and we’re in for some delicious-looking baked goods (one of each, please) and breakfast at either the original and very charming butler to-go in Williamsburg with its adorable pink dutch door and outdoor seating, or their new larger sit-down, full menu location with a view of the bridge as its backdrop. butler to-go serves just baked goods, including espresso from the good people at Intelligentsia, while butler bake shop serves a full-on seasonal breakfast in their cafe-bakery. either way, it’s hot in new york this time of year, so we’re going summer casual in our favorite black denim cutoffs, statement-making tee, anna sui bucket hat, and some very chic Fisherman Platform shoes. whilst scarfing down your pastry and supping your espresso i suggest reading 111 Places in Brooklyn That You Must Not Miss by the ever-curious explorer John Major. brooklyn is a city constantly shifting and changing and his insider’s alternative travel guide will inspire wanderlust even for those who call Brooklyn home with 230 pages and 111 fascinating places to visit.

color story: darker days / sfgirlbybay

we’ve been pretty ‘light-hearted’ around here lately — i blame the warm summer vibes! so for today’s color story, i’m headed back to the dark side. i like going there on occasion and especially when i find some darkly dramatic decor filling up my pinterest feed. some of these rooms have really gone to the extreme — painting their walls richly black, but then adding all black furniture and bedding too. i’m not sure i could personally go there, but it does have a certain soothing, serene appeal, doesn’t it? i feel like i could dream for days in some of these all-black bedrooms. don’t be afraid to darken your doorstep — after all, it’s only paint!
