Steal vs. Splurge: Vintage-Inspired Chain Crossbody Bag

When you’re looking to add some classic luxury to an outfit, nothing’s more on point than a saddle bag with vintage vibes. While I don’t believe in buying fake designer anything EVER, there’s no shame in jumping on the vintage-inspired trend on a budget.

If you’re someone who can splurge on the Chloe bag, go for it! You’ll get what you paid for just by the quality of the leather alone. However, if you’re anything like me and most people, the Chloe Crossbody is probably out of reach. When you can’t afford your dream designer bag, I always suggest going for something that’s inexpensive and unique and this Faux Leather Saddle Bag fits the bill (literally). Happy shopping and aspiring!

A Picnic in the Park

One of my favorite things to do in New York City is going to the Whole Foods in Columbus Circle, getting food from their delicious buffet, and taking it over to Central Park for a picnic.  I totally recommend going through this ritual one day with a few close friends.   It’s a beautiful way to experience New York and one of the few relaxing things I’ve ever participated in on the island of Manhattan.  I strongly recommend bringing cocktails or wine with you on this weekend excursion, but be sure to keep all such beverages in unmarked containers.

As tribute to one of my favorite weekend activities, I’ve put together the perfect Central Park Picnic outfit:

1.  TOPSHOP Check Floral Lattice Sun Dress: Every picnic is a great photo opportunity.  Be sure to get some angelic shots of you and your friends with Central Park in the background.  The outfit is key.

2.  kate spade new york seaport grand bracelet watch: I’ve been obsessed with this watch for a while.  So I obviously had to include it.

3.  Chloe Sunglasses: Never spend the day in Central Park without a stylish pair of sunglasses.

4.  Picnic Time Picnic Basket: Very cute to have for those summer days in the park or on the beach.

5.  MIA Bonita Orange Nova Flip Flops: When going on a walk or picnic in the park, always wear sensible shoes that match your outfit.
