the long and short of it

Currently traveling back home from a little stint in San Francisco and then Chicago this past week. To say I'm looking forward to my bed, my first Fourth of July spent in New York and this guy would be a severe understatement.  Here's to a short work week and another long weekend right around the corner!

cat on a hot tin roof

Kimono: Vintage; Bathing suit top and bottom: Aldo; Towel: From Turkey; Bag: Aldo

If you've followed This Time Tomorrow for a while now, you probably already know I have a thing for rooftops. Take the first formative years of this blog for instance -- I practically shot all of my outfit photos up on the roof of my first apartment building in San Francisco. 

What I always regret though is not taking advantage of said rooftop for it's lounging potential (but I also partially blame San Francisco's finicky weather for that, too). It's funny to think how often I went up there each day to snap photos and capture the view, but never thought to tote a bottle of wine or prepare a dinner for two up there. So you can imagine my delight when I found out my new building here in New York not only has a little courtyard out back (perfect for late night breaks with Elvis) but also a pretty decent rooftop spread, flanked by the Hudson and a pretty mean sunset on one side and the Empire State and Chrysler Building on the other.

 Now that our temps are slowly rising, I've been making more of a point to pop up here with friends, a bottle of wine, a few good books and magazines and simply listen to the city buzz around us. It's quickly become my favorite escape these days, not to mention, a great excuse to stock up on a few new summery pieces, like this fringe bathing suit number and tribal-inspired bag from Aldo

Cheers to summer Fridays, am I right? 

And to help kick off the season, Aldo is giving away a year's worth of accessories and handbags ($900 worth in value) -- simply upload a selfie of how you style your Aldo accessories on Instagram before June 28th. Here's how it works:
