A New York Love Affair :: Picnic in Central Park

I firmly believe — with every fiber of my being — that there is no better place than Manhattan in the early summer. Okay, so I say this every season … maybe there’s just no better place than Manhattan, period. Yeah, that is also probably true.  Anyway … those first few weekends of summer are the best. Whether you’re picnicking in the park, ferrying over to Smorgasborg, partying it up at Gov Ball, or just eating froyo on your stoop … the thought of NYC summer weekends is enough to motivate you through a long work week.

For me, this weekend was spent browsing more neighborhoods and scoping out more apartments. We’re getting close … I don’t want to jinx it … so keep your fingers crossed!

  • Trend Alert :: Pineapple is fashion’s produce print of the summer, and I’m loving it
    • Steal :: $55 pineapple espadrilles from Shopbop
    • Splurge :: $175 pineapple flats from Tory Burch
  • Psst! That adorable picnic basket + blanket up at the top? You can get both at Bed, Bath & Beyond.
  • I don’t know about you, but my picnics turn into lay-out session, so next time I’m for sure packing this brightly colored swim suit.
  • Oh, and I like to blare my music (and sing loudly along, and sometimes off key…whoops!), but if you want to keep the party to yourself, how sweet are these FRENDS headphones? I want.
  • Poll :: Am I cool enough for these sunnies? I wore my friend’s once here. Yay or nay?

    I always love your links! Good luck with apartment hunting. That will be me at the end of the summer. I love your picnic shot – it makes me want to run over there to New York…all the way from LA like Forest Gump! :)

    I am so jealous… I wish I would have lived there for a short while. I’ve only visited once but loved it!
