I've slowly been making progress on my NYC bucket list since I moved here. I've helped someone with directions.. in Italian (no, I don't speak any Italian.. I'm not sure if I helped at all..), I've witnessed something crazy - lightning over the NYC skyline, insane!, and I've made it to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, and it is all it's cracked up to be. 

My friend Kasie and I used our day off to explore the beautiful gardens, and I totally wanna head back on a day that I'm dressed for the warmer weather. My long pants were sticking to my body, and after an hour I was ready to go. But definitely not before I snapped some photos!

A few weeks ago, Cinco Powell sent me one of their fabulous totes - complete with a monogram and a tassel to make it the perfect summer tote for me. It's roomy enough that it fits everything I travel with (a DSLR, wallet, cosmetics pouch, notebook, my planner, and more!). I love carrying my iPad around with me on days I don't have to be at the office, because the last thing I want to do is use my laptop after being on it all week, and this bag is perfect for it because it has the perfect iPad slot! (it can even fit my MacBook for days I do decide to bring it along with me!)

Of course I would choose the winter white bag, with the most perfect leather accents and a fuchsia monogram. The really cool thing about Cinco Powell's bags is you don't have to monogram it to personalize it -you can "tag your bag" by purchasing tassels, monogrammed tags and others, and mix and match depending on your mood, style, or outfit of the day! I chose a fuchsia tassel to compliment my block monogram, and I'm obsessed with it! I've even been tagging other bags that I own, adding the tassel to it for a pop of color!

The quality of the leather far exceeds the price you pay for this beauty of a bag.. andddd surprise: they reduced their prices.. by A LOT! Now, you can grab this bad boy for only $126, and not the $300+ figure that they used to be! Grab them fast though, this bag is a summer must-have! 

P.S. can we talk about how bad I am at being a fashion blogger.. these pics are so #awks.
