it’s hard to truly explain in words how amazing this day was!  my bestie, amanda, and i woke up extra early to experience the first snow {of the day} in brooklyn.  it was beautiful so definitely worth it & we felt extra productive with the entire day ahead of us.  we grabbed cappuccinos, split an almond croissant and strolled through our favorite neighborhood.  these are the best kind of days.  even though my east coast fox & i were totally twinning, we actually have very different style.  and i love that!  but one thing we can always agree on is the necessity of a great pair of black jeans.  these “dream jeans” from lee honestly feel like cozy leggings on the inside, but they have enough durability to dress up any outfit.  we ended up spending the entire day in them, including alyssa‘s birthday party over 12 hours later.  i love something that can transition from day to night… it’s so important in new york since we’re always on the go!

the perfect {picnic} // blogger besties

one saturday morning, four blogger besties met in strawberry fields.  the perfect picnic people met us at central park to deliver the cutest blue and white tote bag complete with a ribbon & including a picnic blanket.  we found a nice shaded spot in strawberry fields – ready to brunch, relax, and enjoy each others company.  now, hindsight is 20/20, so given the chance to do it again, we probably would not have chosen the hottest day of the year at that point [a cool 96°] for our outdoor meal.  however, the perfect picnic made our experience so so so enjoyable.  they provided all the necessities & then some!  the food ranged from assorted baguettinis, north fork potato chips, & a cheese wedge… to fresh berries, seasonal salad, & bread… even organic lemonade, homemade chocolate chip cookies, & sea salt brownies.  this was a feast fit for a king!  [or 4 queens]
