Mint Julep

Aside from the magnificent color of this dress, you may have also noticed the amazing quality of these photos. Over the summer I met up with my new friend Amanda (@peiwenmandy), who happens to be an amazing photographer! We went over to a little rooftop garden in Boston, and it had such a magnificent view! I can't get over how amazing these photos came out, and I wish I could shoot with Amanda all the time!

I love how this dress looks with the garden. It's been a while since I've worn a sweet cute summer dress. This Cynthia Rowley one does a nice job of making solids more exciting with the cuts by the neckline. This was a nice change for me than my black and whites or prints. And again, it looks great with all the trees and flowers!

It's also my first day of classes, so for now I have a lot of posts from the summer. It might get a little hectic with classes starting up, and hopefully I'll be able to keep the same schedule with posting on Monday/Thursday. For now make sure to follow me on instagram @emmahonohan. I'll keep you posted on classes later this week!

Bubble Tea Ventures

Crazy looking back on these photos from just a month ago, and I'm already getting ready to go back to school! I diagnosed myself with PNYD, or Post New York Depression. I might have just made that up on the spot, but it should really be a real thing! On one of the last days in the office, the other interns and I decided we needed some bubble tea. A pretty random craving, but somehow it came up in our conversation. And that's when I saw the beauty of New York, if you want something as random as bubble tea, it's just a 15 minute walk from the office to chinatown- where there is plenty of bubble tea!!

We all decided to wear Yumi Kim outfits that day too. I still remember every print and style, so I will link what everyone wore below! On the way to bubble tea, you'll sea we made a few more stops in Little Italy. My friends wanted to grab a little lunch, so we stopped by this place called Genuine Superette, it wasn't part of our plan but it looked nice so we decided to give it a shot. Daniella ordered the tuna burger, and she said it was AH-mazing! The place has some really cool vibes, so if you're in the area, definitely try it out!

I almost left out the most important part-the bubble tea! We went to Kung-Fu tea, which is in China town. It was a small shop, but crowded at the time and quick service. I thought it was good and decently priced. On the way back to the office, we saw another bubble tea place, Chatime. Danielle had heard of it before and wanted to go for round two of bubble tea (just to compare). She actually liked Chatime better, and it was a hair cheaper! Honestly, I couldn't tell much of a difference and since they are literally 100 feet within each other, either one is a great choice!

Twin Cherries

So I may or may not have found a magical garden to take pictures in…

If you've seen my last few posts, you'd know that I was in Cape Cod for a week before I started working as a tennis specialist for my summer camp. This was a great break for me after my internship and right before camp. I thought I had posted all my Cape photos, but I totally forgot about this one! Midi skirts are so popular right now, and to be totally honest I wasn't actually a huge fan at the start (well, I guess that changed!). But I think it was because I could never find the right midi skirt?

Another stand off for midis for me was that I always thought it was mandatory with heels, and if you knew how clumsy I am in real life, you'd know that is not an option for me! But this skirt has such a bold yet dark print, that I can totally, and happily, pull it off with just lace up sandals. And it's easy to just add a plain top, voila! Such a simple outfit, but really says a lot!

I actually just finished camp this past week, and thought I was done with summer. But my family and I are making a short trip to Maine (for the beach of course!) so you can follow me along on instagram while I'm there.
