On the Saturday that I arrived in Brooklyn, Emi and I walked to Smith Street to check out some shoes. Emi was on the hunt for some non-mom looking clogs. It is somewhat of an urban legend that Smith Street holds the keys to the clogs of your dreams. After a few good leads we ended up at Refinery, a small storefront loaded with dresses, jewelry, trinkets for your home and Sven clogs.
Not only did this place have the clogs we were looking for but they come in an array of styles and rainbow of colors. You simply choose the style you desire and then choose a color from their collection, write a check and then come back in two weeks to pick up the clogs of your dreams. It really is that easy!
In addition Emi & I were surprised to see the beloved Saltwater Sandals of our childhood featured prominently in the center of the store- what goes around comes around I guess.
On Friday night I hopped on a plane to JFK. I arrived at 6:30am and quickly took a cab over to my best friend Emily’s apartment on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn. After a little nap we were on our way to enjoy the sights and sounds of Brooklyn, NY. Enjoy the pics from my iPhone.
Busy bees, can you see them?

My weekend in Brooklyn was in advance of three days in Manhattan for work. It was a great trip, I can’t wait to return and have lots more fotos to share in the next few days.
