Photos taken in Fulton Market

Happy hump day!  Last Thursday Patrick and I ventured over to the west side for date night.  We went to the new Ace Hotel in Fulton Market for dinner at City Mouse.  We arrived earlier than our reservation so we wandered around the block, took some blog photos, then went back to the hotel and grabbed a drink at their rooftop bar, Waydown (which just so happened to be opening that night!).  The spot has great views and a cool, not-trying-too-hard vibe.  When it was time for dinner, we went down to the restaurant and ordered the Roti Mopho to start (at the rec of my coworker - it's SO good!).  For our meals, I ordered the Rigatoni and Patrick ordered the Smoked Chicken and both were amazing.  For dessert we ordered the Funnel Cake, which is authentic funnel cake topped with popcorn ice cream, crushed corn bits and drizzled in caramel - my mouth is watering just typing this!

The plan was to end the night at Expat with a boozy snow cone and Utz Crab Chips, but we arrived to find it all packed up and the lights out.  After doing some research it looks like they're opening mid-August?  Not sure what's going on there!

I didn't know what to wear for date night, so when in doubt, wear a monochrome outfit!  I love an all white look in the summer - it's simple, classic and fresh.  I also love all the pretty details on this J.Crew top - the eyelet material, the layered fluted edge, the grosgrain tie straps...the list goes on!  It also comes in a gorgeous lavender color and a classic black, both of which would have been perfect with this outfit as well.

Thanks for reading!
