When you can’t make it to the boardwalk at the Jersey Shore, the next best thing is Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City. This boardwalk style park resembles The High Line and has some of the most amazing views of Manhattan. I like to stop by at least once every summer.
I always say that you don’t know if you really love an outfit until you’ve done an entire photo shoot with it. So now I can officially say that I love this Banana Republic Mixed Floral V Neck Maxi Dress. I need to plan a fancy brunch or tea party just as an excuse to wear it again. I paired it with my fav Longchamp ‘Small Le Pliage’ Shoulder Bag and felt like a true summer socialite. The shoes are from Joe Fresh.
For my makeup I used the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner, Maybelline New York Eyestudio Colortattoo Concentrated Crayon Eye Color in Bronze Truffle, Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Soft Brown to fill in my brows, Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara and The Blushed Nudes Maybelline Eyeshadow Palette to blend it all together.
