Fun fact: my favorite park in New York City isn’t actually in New York City. Over the weekend, James and I went out to Brooklyn to grab ice cream and hang out in Prospect Park. It takes 45 minutes to get there from where we live, but it’s well worth the trek. I love it way more than Central Park, because it actually feels like an escape from the hustle and grind. There are way less tourists and even though there’s sometimes a crowd, the vibe is much more laid back and much more enjoyable.

We rolled out a little striped blanket, snapped photos of our pup on our instant film camera and hung out while the sun set. I wore this striped linen dress, which is a material that I don’t wear often enough. It’s simple and lightweight and perfect for a little lounging. I highly recommend picking up some easy linen pieces and getting yourself out to Prospect Park this summer!

During the work week, chances are that you’ll find me dolled up in a dress or a skirt.  On weekends, I prefer a much more laid back look.  Loafers, shorts, and a super casual top (even button ups are pushin’ it here).  My off duty looks are made for exploring new neighborhoods (this outfit was shot in Park Slope, Brooklyn), curling up at coffee shops and napping in the park.  Happy weekend friends!
