last week, josh and i biked across the park and visited the metropolitan museum of art together. since i’m partnering with J.McLaughlin this month, i thought it was the perfect spot to showcase this classic look from the brand that has me all excited for fall approaching. while i’m a big leggings kind of girl, one thing i know for sure is not all leggings are created equal. these rye reversible leggings are made of scuba fabric and they are reversible! so you get two prints in one, and also, you get to be comfortable. i’m wearing this ribbed arlette turtleneck with the leggings.
a few photos my love snapped during our morning out…
the first place i love to go when we’re at the met is to my degas paintings and sculptures. i mostly love how he depicts the dancers in the back of his paintings, kind of standing attentively but still somewhat relaxed as they listen to the instructor or watch others take turns moving on the floor. there is one painting where a girl is sitting on top of a piano kind of slouched over scratching her back and she looks kind of sassy and i always want to know her story when i see that painting. it must be the old dancer in me, but his work is seriously my favorite.
this sweet face reminds me of conrad. haha!
does anyone else miss the little metal pins you’d get for admission to the met that have been replaced the past year or two by stickers? i don’t know why they got rid of those, but i used to keep mine and they felt much more special than the printed stickers. we sadly didn’t make it up to the rooftop this time around, but if you ever go, you must go up to the roof! they often have fun art installations up there (they have a roof garden exhibit right now i hope to make it back to to see before it closes) but mostly go for the views of the city and central park. it’s beautiful up there.
thank you to J.McLaughlin for sponsoring this blog post, and to josh for taking my picture because sometimes i can be the most awkward thing to photograph when i’m the only one in the frame. you can see more of J.McLaughlin’s fall collection here.
