An Afternoon At The MET

This past Friday afternoon, Emma and I had a sister date at the MET. After meeting, we wandered through the Sackler wing to check out the Temple of Dendur and Charles Engelhard Court. Both rooms are super light-filled and so pretty (here's a peek on instagram).

Next, we rode the elevator up to the 5th floor to see the roof garden and grab a drink.

Admittedly, it was hot and crowded up there, so after taking in the views, we opted to forgo the café and retreat back inside the museum where we detoured over to the Modern wing (my favorite). I love how the bright, bold colors in the contemporary paintings pop against the white walls and blonde wood floors.

Emma just happened to coordinate perfectly with the art!

After working up our appetites in the museum, we strolled down the Upper East Side before settling in for a yummy Italian lunch at Bella Blu.

As always, thanks for the fun afternoon, sistah bean.

P.S. An afternoon at the Louvre. I find it fascinating how much this post visually contrasts with that one. The Louvre is so fancy and ornate and...French.


  1. How beautiful! I really enjoy all your pictures. Also, where is that dress from? It's GORGEOUS.

  2. Believe it or not, I got that dress from forever 21 years ago!

  3. Oh my gosh, it's simply stunning and a beautiful color on you! Forever 21 for the win!

  4. Thanks so much! I love finding things that are great for less than 20 bucks! :)

  5. Great shots as always...it reminds me how long it's been since I've visited the MET! Need to get back, ASAP. p.s. your sistah is so beautiful (as are you)!


Your thoughts always bring a smile to my face. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave them.
