le week-end: nyc wrap-up

image via {here}
hello mes chéries!  i hope that you had such a lovely summer's weekend.  returning to boston late last night, my few days in nyc were perfectly magical, mostly due to, however brief, reunions with dear friends.  highlights included a morning basking in the grandeur of the frick, breakfast in the park both days, seasonal cuisine at mercer kitchen {and a most delicious cocktail :: thyme-infused vodka and sparkling lemonade}, after dinner drinks at a biergarten in the meatpacking district, and shopping and galleries in soho {chanel + chagall = bliss}.  but perhaps the most memorable stop was at the kimberly hotel's rooftop bar in midtown.  the perfect combination of an outdoor summer space glittering with white lights {and glasses of champagne} surrounded by city skyscrapers, the experience was at once refreshing & trés urban, trumped only by the perfect and delightful, quiet content of best friends, reunited at last.  oh and it's official ... i will be a new yorker in less than a month! eek! summer may be slowly coming to an end, but wonderful things are on the horizon.  xx hillary

p.s. check back later for some posts featuring some design trends i noticed during our shopping excursions ...
