Positively Medieval

When I say "it's a hike to the cloisters," I'm speaking metaphorically and literally. The Met's medieval branch is not only located at the very top of Manhattan (which means an hour and 15 minutes on the subway for me), but it also requires a 10 minute winding walk up a hill in Fort Tryon Park to reach the entrance. Was all of this worth it? Absolutely.

This gorgeous museum is something out of a fantasy land and spending a few hours there yesterday with my friends Shay and Astrid was magical.

The gorgeous grounds of the Cloisters are truly a photographers dream. There are so many alcoves to explore, incredible lighting and crazy beautiful details.

A sleeveless dress and floral kimono are a winning summer combo in my book, but in 90 degree weather, I'm not going to lie, I was still so hot. 

Of course every view from the museum was gorgeous... I expected nothing less since I for real hiked up a mountain to get there. #dramatic

Every room felt like something out of Game of Thrones, or ya know... history too, I guess. 

I thought I'm semi tan after my vacation -- that idea is laughable when I stand next to Astrid. 

They're adorable. 

The two main takeaways:

1. You should visit the Cloisters. 
2. You should wear sneakers.
