I have officially fallen in love with a neighborhood. Yes, a neighborhood. One of my best girlfriends, Sammy, moved to Astoria, Queens about a month ago and I visited her over the weekend. I got the opportunity to wander and discover the gem that is Astoria. Commonly known for it's rich Greek culture and people, it has become quite a eclectic area filled with delicious restaurants, diverse bars and the friendliest people! 

After doing some research, we agreed on going to a restaurant called Sweet Afton for brunch and it was absolutely fantastic! Such a cute spot. The rustic, folksy spot was the perfect place for brunch and it was so cozy! The food was phenomenal and so were the drinks ;)

We wandered around the neighborhood with our fully bellies after brunch and enjoyed the gorgeous sunshine. The weather was perfect for this studded leather jacket. I was so excited to wear it for the first time. I had been on the hunt for the perfect petite leather/pleather jacket for a while now and was gifted this one. Thanks Laura! :)  It was a Christmas gift but due to our insane weather here in New York, I haven't had the chance to wear it! The jacket runs small, I'm wearing a regular sized medium and my only issue was that the sleeves were a tad bit long but overall the fit was great. I paired it with these old Abercrombie & Fitch jeans. These jeans are literally from my freshman year of high school! They always fit be a little big back then but they fit now and I've been able to style them differently. Now I'm fully embracing the ripped jeans and heels trend. It took long enough haha. Underneath my jacket is a super comfy J.Crew Factory tee and to add some color I wore a vibrant green Ralph Lauren Newbury Double Zip Satchel (a bigger version of my wine colored one!) and bright red lipstick. 

What are some of your favorite brunch spots? Share below!

  1. Not well versed in brunch spots but I did enjoy my punch brunch at Millesime in the Flatiron area. By the way, bring me back a nice griego next time. ;]
