Saturday at the Whitney

On Saturday, darling S and I took a trip to the Upper East Side to pay a visit to The Whitney.

The Whitney sets itself apart from the many other museums in the city, not only for its unique architecture, but also for its emphasis on 20th and 21st century American Art, the majority being part of Gertrude Vandebilt Whitney's personal collection.

Ms Whitney was an artist herself and my favourite piece of hers at the museum was a self-sculpture, "Chinoise":

What I wore:

Anthropologie Strappy Dandelion Dress, J Crew aqua necklace and skinny patent belt, Kenneth Cole tan wedges, Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Clutch (here in black)

Since we were in the neighbourhod, I had to pop into Lilly Pulitzer and was thrilled to find the Blossom dress on sale (although still at full-price online).

We ended our little excursion at Via Quadronno. I am still thinking about the mozzarella tomato panini and latte we gobbled down.
