Family Night in New York

family night in New York - Larkin family - Kelly in the city

Drapey Top (On MAJOR sale! Runs TTS. I also have my eye on this top.) / Lantern Earrings (Lightest earrings ever!) / Favorite White Skinny Jeans (TTS.) / Comfiest Leather Block Heel Sandals (Here’s the flat version, and here’s the slide version. They’re all crazy comfortable.) / J.Crew Denim Jacket (Love the white one, too.) / Emma’s Denim Dress and Jacket / Emma’s Huarache Sandals (Adult version here!) / Mitch’s Blazer and Sperrys

On Monday, we flew to New York. :) I’ll admit that travel is no longer as easy as it used to be now that Emma’s a toddler, and yes… we might have found ourselves Home Alone-style sprinting through O’Hare International Airport in an effort to make our flight. (For a variety of reasons. I can’t put that all on Emma. 😂) We made it, though!

Vineyard Vines Shep Shirts - Kelly in the City

Vineyard Vines Shep ShirtsHats, Shorts, Tote Bag (Though obsessed with this one and this one!), Jean Shorts, Pineapple Bathing Suit, Gingham Bikini Top and Bottom c/o / Jack Rogers (Price matched! This version is on sale, too!)

I told Carly and Mackenzie the other day that I’ll likely be posting photos from our trip to the Abacos with Vineyard Vines well into August. 😂 I’m sure you’ve felt like this before, but whenever I get home from a trip, I feel a bit daunted by the number of snaps I need to cull through. I know I’ve said that photo editing is relaxing for me, and it is. But I also find that while I’m on vacation, I tend to take a zillion photos of essentially the same subject.

Omg, a palm tree!

[Proceeds to take 26 photos of said palm tree from slightly different angles.]

How to Stop Asking “What Do You Do?”

what do you do- Kelly In the City

Disclaimer: Trying something new on the blog today!

I remember nodding my head in agreement when I came across this article in Forbes last year. It makes the claim that we need to stop leading conversations with the age-old “what do you do?” question upon meeting new people. The idea is that when we do this, we run the risk of making the person feel like her worth is being measured entirely by her career… when in reality, of course, she is a multidimensional person who isn’t solely defined by what she does to pay the bills.

I know, I know.

Mitch Designed a Trench

Mitch's Stock Khaki Trench Coat - Kelly in the City

Mitch’s Stock Trench (Use code “KELLYANDMITCH15” for 15 percent off!) / Mitch’s Loafers , Gingham Shirt and Watch c/o / Kelly’s Everyday Cashmere Sweater (Her FAVE), Bow Mules (On sale!), Favorite Weekend Jeans, Floral Tote c/o and Lined Trench (Double-Breasted Version Here.) / Emma’s Trench Coat, Gingham Romper and  Huarache Sandals

I’m so excited about today’s post! Because–as you probably surmised from the title–Mitch designed a trench coat! We took these photos last week on a particularly crisp (and windy) day downtown, and since it’s full-on monsooning at the moment, I thought I’d share some of my faves… and hand it over to Mitch!
