That place I should visit more

This weekend I went to New Haven to visit the Yale Art Gallery, which had some very beautiful paintings by Van Gogh and Monet and a particularly intriguing piece by Christian Marclay that was a collection of movie clips in which the actors were interacting with telephones. It was seven minutes long. I watched the whole thing.

After the gallery, right across the street is a restaurant called Scoozi, which has the most inviting outdoor eating area ever. There is flight of stairs that spans the width of the dining area, and you head down them so you are not sitting right on the street, but rather below it. There is a big tree growing in the middle, and lots of flowers. Plus the food was good.

And then I saw this adorable bicycle as I was passing by and had to snap a photo of it. I've decided I really want a cute vintage looking bike. I realize it's a bit late this summer, so I think next year I will get one for myself as a b-day gift. The exact bike I saw can be found at Target, of all places.

  5. I bought a new bike last summer and it was the best decision! I live close enough to pedal to work and it makes the short commute so much more fun! Plus, it's a cruiser-style bike so it's extremely comfortable!

    Love the photos today. They're beautiful, and the art film sounds intriguing!

  8. That gallery sounds awesome! I love Monet. He's always been my favorite artist, and I remember the first time I saw one of his paintings - it was at the Getty Museum in LA, and it was so beautiful I almost cried :)

  22. I love museums, especially in the summer, they have the best a/c. ;)

    I love the top, is it tiger stripes? I'm horrible naming animal patterns.

    Cute bike!

  23. You definitely need a vintage cruiser! It'd fit right in with you on the beach and through the little towns in New England.

  24. You're a gal after my own heart- there's nothing I enjoy more than spending an afternoon at the art gallery, followed by a delicious meal. You look beautiful- I love the hat and that bike is too cute- I have a similar one from Walmart of all places!

  25. Isn't the YUAG just the best? I love that place - but the British Art Center across the street is also awesome! Let me know the next time you're in New Haven, I'd love to grab a coffee and do some glam shots.

  35. Great hat and shorts combo. Liked reading about your museum and restaurant visit, too. One of the things I regret about my time at college in New Haven is that my crew didn't really venture out into that area of the city, beyond a few theater visits. There's so much to see there.

  37. Oh I like this top a lot! It looks so summery styled here but it'd be an awesome fall piece too. You're making me want white shorts!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh, I like this outfit especially your fedora and sheer stripe top. The location was perfect too!
