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]

{neutrals} are always in season

if there’s one thing i’ve learned about style since living in new york, it’s that a black ensemble always works.  but now that summer is upon us, it’s all about bright whites.  in my opinion, neutrals are always in season.  and neutrals can always be paired together.  my favorite way to wear monochrome is in different textures.  i think a white sweater knit + a sequin woven jogger + a nude patent leather pump creates interest without distracting.  this can be done in a variety of ways, but neutrals feel effortless.  happy viewing, let me know what you think!

fancy @ the flatiron // {florals} + felines

14

this may be my favorite photoshoot to date.  what’s not to love?!  florals, felines, & the flatiron, oh my!  as you can see by my Instagram posts leading up to this & the title here, I am all about the F’s.  all of the alliteration, all of the Fs.  little did I know these were a few of my favorite things!  somehow I’m feeling fancy in this outfit, but why?  all it really is is a Target blazer over the easiest white tee & flowy skirt combo in all the land.

to me, it’s fancy because of the mix of textures & angles.  it’s not about what you spent, where you’re going, or even why you’re wearing it.  it’s about how you pair everything together – attitude included.  and yes, playful counts!
