On our second day in New York, Sean and I set out for Brooklyn for some classic diner fare, people-watching, and a little boutique shopping. Unlike the gorgeous sunny weather we had our first day there, it was cloudy and a bit hazy, which quickly turned into an afternoon drizzle that sadly prevented us from getting many pictures of our surroundings. We did, however, manage to find a few minutes of decent weather for some outfit photos.

During our travels, we happened upon a lovely little shop full of the prettiest smells. We spent over an hour sampling perfumes and chatting with Eric, the proprietor at Twisted Lily Fragrance Boutique. I love things that smell pretty about as much as I love things that look pretty--although the latter is much easier to blog about--and Twisted Lily did not disappoint in either sense. I'm relatively familiar with niche perfume houses, but they had quite a few brands that were pleasant new discoveries for me. Eric impressed both Sean and me by picking scents for each of us just based on descriptions of a mood or genre we liked. If you're a perfume aficionado, I'd definitely recommend a visit here should you find yourself in New York.
One more post from NYC to come later this week!
