So it took me about a year, but I finally walked across the Brooklyn Bridge and damn it was stressful. There are a lot of people and bikes and the lanes are narrow and there are a lot of tourists and it’s basically survival of the fittest out there. Luckily there were a few spots we could grab some photos without risking death.

So I'm finally back in New York. Though I'm only here for a few days on vacation, I'm still happy to be back... even if I'm a little bigger. And that's because I'm expecting a baby boy in October. So life took an unexpected turn, but I'm making the most of it and staying fashionable while doing it.
The real reason for this short trip was, of course, the exhibit at the Met. After seeing it last year three times, I was determined to come again, and I will make it my personal mission to come every year. This year's theme is Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. As you can see, I tried to live up to that theme as best I could while dressing for a lot of walking + having a noticeable baby bump.

Here are some photos from the exhibit itself which was split between the Met Fifth Ave and Met Cloisters. You can see more on my Instagram highlights as well.
See ya next year, Met Museum.
