Yesterday showed signs of spring. Yesterday also showed signs that I was days away from a beach vacation with nothing but white legs and arms that are so fluorescent I could easily stop traffic. So what’s a girl to do when she’s days away from dresses and dancing? Plan backwards…
Well after recovering from a wonderful weekend in New England and NYC and a sickness that felt like the 8th plague – I am so excited to final share with you pictures and a recap of a great event I got to attend in my favorite city in the world with @46NYC.
Deciding on an outfit for this occasion was no easy feat as I was going to be in the company of some of bachelor/bachelorette’s finest and friends from the NYC area. Let’s just say Michelle Money had on some awesome yellow stilettos! After finally settling on black pants and a leopard top for an acoustics session by The CAB at NYC’s Webster Hall – I ventured down to the famous 3rd and 11th street venue to support the Faulkner family to bring Ryan home with old and new friends Robyn, Jenna, Jen, Jaclyn and Lizzie.
For some colorful background:
46NYC is a New York based charity run with heart and passion by Graham Bunn, Hal Kivette and John McGinn. I had the pleasure of meeting Graham and Hal and was so impressed by their candor, compassion and honesty dedicated to helping causes that would maybe otherwise be overlooked; shedding light on some of the biggest issues facing our world and how we as a younger group can make a difference and really feel its impact down to a family living on our own soil – just like the Faulkner’s.
Packing I am convinced is an art form I will never master. Not only am I severe over-packer for some reason I find that drinking wine and talking to friends is going to lead to a productive laundry packing session. TBD whether or not I will have a fabulous outfit to wear to a great event on Friday in NYC with good friends – it could combine some form of neon and print in which case hipster chic may be completely fine at a Concert with The Cab.
I have been getting a lot of inquiries lately about what this “event” is that I am attending on Friday at Webster Hall in NYC and I can tell you it’s with an organization dedicated to great work. #46NYC is a “classic brand” serving some of the greatest hardships in today’s global society, from disease to abuse and poverty and committed to giving back in not only a fashionable way but while engaged in fellowship to bring awareness to these challenges.
One thing about this organization that strikes a chord with me is their commitment to connectedness to help the cause. Social Media channels fueled by the influencers behind this organization have garnered a network spanning cities all over the United States to support multiple causes. This group has served each cause connecting with the local community to bring outsiders in for these special occasions. I have been very lucky this community has welcomed me with open arms and look forward to spending time getting to know them.
