What I Wore: Picnic in the Park Edition

The Venn Diagram of people who are happy about summer’s arrival includes: students, east coasters who dealt with the polar vortex, and people who like to eat outside. If I could, I would draw this diagram for you, with a big “ME!” printed right in the middle of the intersection of all three. Sadly, I can’t draw, so I’m going to have to ask you to do the work for me and imagine. If this were a particularly fancy diagram, I would include the above picture of me twirling too (it’s probably a good thing I’m not a designer, no?). PS: My poor, long suffering boyfriend had to take about 30 pictures of me twirling in front of my front door until I got the right one. He’s a keeper.

I had a hard & long week between school ending, going on some interviews for jobs I really wanted (that didn’t pan out, sad trombone), and going on interviews for more jobs I also wanted (that did pan out! happy trombone!), so it felt really good to doll up & sit in the sun. This dress is one of the ones that I always know will make me feel really good. It’s pretty durable so I never have to worry about being too precious, which makes it the perfect dress for sitting in the grass, eating messy food, and going on adventures in!

I’ve had this dress for… forever, I think (and therefore can’t remember where I got it?). I style it a little differently every time I wear it. This time I paired it with an Anthropologie vest and sandals I’ve also had forever. I slapped on my fav pink lipstick and went to hang out in Washington Square Park with some new & old friends! This weekend is dedicated to lounging, going on New York City adventures, and working on some projects that I’m excited to show you guys! What are you up to this weekend?
