a sunday picnic in central park gelato and people watching
INGREDIENTS FOR A
weekend in new york
my friends and i planted ourselves in parks on both saturday and sunday (washington square, madison square, and central park to be specific). pair that with two delicious brunches (hundred acres & friend of a farmer) plus weather suitable for shorts, i'd call it a weekend too picturesque and perfect for words!
expensive and only available for about two months a year, peonies are definitely one of my favorite, albeit hard-to-get, flowers. on the left, a gorgeous selection of the rare beauties at Dean & Deluca. on the right, a bloom i picked at The Meadow in the west village.
let's go on an ..... the perfect print made into the perfect summer staple
THAT I LOVE ABOUT
summer in new york
tuesday was the first day of the season that felt like summer - spring would be a serious understatement. the weather instantly made me think of everything that makes new york so terrific in the warmth: the restaurant's bench under my apartment made for west village people watching, walking out of your apartment in shorts to run to the store, colorful pedicures, outdoor dining (morandi is my no. 1 for this), prancing in the park, spontaneous run-ins because everyone is out and about, rooftop living. . .the list goes on. did i mention the shoes? definitely the shoes. pictured above(via instagram) sandals | bag | neon | shorts
