Army & Navy

by Jessica Sturdy on October 10, 2012

As you may recall from Twitter a few weeks back, my friend, Rose, and I headed up-state! We took a gorgeous train ride up the Hudson to a little town called Poughkeepsie to do the “Walkway Over The Hudson.” (See Rose’s recap here!)

It was so fun to get out of the city for the day and do some exploring. While the town wasn’t as lively as we hoped and the leaves weren’t as in color as we would have liked, it was still a very worthwhile trip! Not to mention, we found a wonderful little lunch spot, Soul Dog Cafe. You must stop by if you’re in town!

J.Crew Sweater (similar) / Nordstrom Scarf (Softest scarf I own… Comes in every color imaginable!) / BDG Jeans / Steve Madden Boots (identical pair under $35!) / Cole Haan Bag / J.Crew Bracelet / Michael Kors Watch / gifted Poshlocket Bracelet / J.Crew Bracelet (similar)

Anddddd… One last picture to brighten up your hump day. I wanted to throw Rose off the bridge (kidding!) for taking a picture from this angle (worst angle EVER!), but the picture is just too funny. Bows & Sequins meets the Jolly Green Giant. Be sure to say hi to my double chin…

See, what did I tell you? Worst angle ever!

PS – I will post my scenic pictures at a later date, I promise! :)

Love the angle! 😉 My friend’s boyfriend always tries to take artsy angled photos and I look forward to seeing my lovely double chin in action.

Hahaha, so funny I can’t stand that angle!! But you still look so cute, love that whole outfit!

Xo, Rachel

I was more impressed with your sun halo! Although I personally enjoy my photo of you sitting on the ground of the bridge to take some shots. That’s what real photographers do, right?

I went to college in Poughkeepsie and loved talking walks on the Walkway. Another great place to check out is Lola’s Cafe- it’s right near the walkway entrance and parking lot!

Hahaha, love the angle! I always end up deleting like half of my photos because of crazy awful angles! :)

I absolutely love your entire outfit!! One of my fall favorites so far!



Michelle October 10, 2012 at 3:39 pm

Aww.. I went to buy the look alike boots and they’re no longer available. :'(

They’re super cute tho! I need to hunt down a pair :)!

Not the worst picture ever, but you are adorable for posting it and calling yourself the Jolly Green Giant. Drooling over your arm candy!

Love the army green with the navy! Such a great pair!


Anna October 22, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Its ironic that you titled this post Army Navy. I go to West Point, which is on the same metro north line as Poughkeepsie. I thought you might have come to the academy to watch an Army Navy game! Anyway, you look adorable and I couldnt agree with you more on how incredible the scenery is : )
