How is it that it’s already almost the Fourth of July?!? The month of June has been flying past me, so this weekend Adam and I snuck away to the lake house and for a couple of blissful days, time practically stood still. And for the short lived time that I put on anything besides a bathing suit – this is what I wore. Which would be perfect for the upcoming weekend’s festivities.
I’ve been talking quite a bit this summer so far about wedding season. And for good reason since I’ve RSVP’d ‘yes’ five times now. Tomorrow kicks off the first of the set and I’m pleased to know I won’t be scrambling for a last minute look.
It’s officially summer, which in New York means Central Park picnic season. And while anywhere else that may mean shorts and a t-shirt (and it can here too if you want) – it’s also an excuse, if you want, to dress like a picnic itself in gingham, a sun hatand a crisp white skirt.
If I’m being completely honest, I’ve been in a bit of creative blog slump for the past few weeks. While lots could be to blame (being busy at work, conflicting travel schedule between Adam and I, life in general…) – the result was that I was turning out posts that I felt less than excited about. Which has never been the point of this little space. It’s meant to be a place where you turn for inspiration to get out there and explore your own city (and beyond!) in style. Not a guide for to how to stand in front of a wall and smile… but there it was. Lucky for us all – on Friday I had the day off work (all hail Summer Fridays) and so I picked myself and headed to one of my favorite happy places in the city. The Met’s rooftop. With sweeping views of the city and a glass of rosé in hand, I felt inspired all over again and by the time Adam caught up with me that evening I was brimming with new ideas. A change of view will do that to a girl I guess. So stick around, we’ve got lots coming your way these next few weeks that I’m truly excited to share – starting with today’s post shot on one of my favorite streets in Greenwich Village.
Life has been busy lately (isn’t that always the way in Summer?) and when that happens, there’s often more than a few outfits that I share on Instagram that never end up making their way over here to the blog. That also happens when I travel without my the man behind the camera. All that being said – I thought it was time to share a quick round-up of some of my favorite early Summer looks from the past few weeks. I’ve been at the lake house, running around the city and on a quick girls weekend to New Orleans and have been relying on a mix and match color palette, comfortable shoes and fun accessories!
