a refined dinner | national girlfriends day


Upon meeting me, I’ll likely ask you a barrage of personal questions right away. It’s not because I’m nosy. It’s because I want to get to the good stuff. Small talk isn’t really my thing. I want to know what you’re passionate about. I want to know your insides.

I love having thoughtful, open, heartfelt discussion with like-minded women. Thanks to The Refined Woman and Anthropologie, I had the pleasure of sharing a gorgeous meal (and several bottles of bubbly) with a handful of creative and vibrant women on the cutest of rooftops in Harlem. From the food to the flowers to the new found friendships, it was an evening worth cherishing. We spoke candidly about finding balance, finding friendships, and finding headspace in this crazy city. We got real and I walked away with some new additions to my tribe that I can’t wait to get to know better, collaborate with, and support in all they do. You know that  saying…you can’t pick your family, but you can pick your friends. I firmly believe that a woman’s tribe of friends is essential to her fulfillment and success, so choose wisely. I love this quote from Amy Poehler on building her tribe…

“Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.”

Happy National Girlfriends Day! More on my outfit in the next post.

Thank you to The Refined Woman & Anthropologie NYC for a lovely evening.
