Day 3 NYC wanderings

So cool and comfortable in my family reunion shirt. What a life saver :)

Dress: Thrifted $3 / Socks: Rivers $2 / Shoes: Converse $50 / Belt: Gifted from Amra Jewellery: Thrifted

Hello lovely ones, How are you all? I thought I better keep the posts coming while I'm on a roll because I just realised (I know I'm slow right) that I still have a mountain of posts waiting to publish. I have numerous old outfit shots, loads of photos from my second trip to Samoa, gigs I have attended and even family functions and events where I went interstate and overseas. I'm so bad I only just started sharing my old New York photos from last year. So I better keep posting now or I will never do it.

This was day 3 of our NYC summer adventure. We woke up early and walked to the top of the Rock from our hotel. I wore this adorable summer dress I found at Mickey and Mallory's for $3. I couldn't wait to wear it because I found it just before winter had hit at home. It is really bright and light; two of my favourite things :) We ate giant pretzels, turkey and cranberry sandwiches and loads of water. It was sooooo hot that day. I packed an extra shirt (it's my most favourite t-shirt and I ordered it online for my family reunion that was held in New Zealand last still to come >,< ) and I'm glad I did because after roaming around I just wanted to be cool and comfortable so this cotton shirt was a lifesaver. We went to the museum of natural history and we ate hot dogs outside of Grand Central park while waiting for our bus. Chatted to some lovely old folk from Canada and posed with a ridiculous amount of wax statues and played in Ripley's haunted house tunnel. To avoid being scared for real my sister just started screaming like she was being murdered so the scary people wouldn't come and touch her. I thought it was funny and I pushed Ruth to the front so that if the scary people were coming to get us, they'd at least get her first.
 Good friend aye ;)
