Picnic in the Park

what to wear to a picnic, picnic in the park nyc, picnic food ideas, what to bring to a picnic, summer reading, read in the park, zara jacquard dress, h&m sandals On Sunday I’m going to a picnic in Brooklyn Bridge Park. One of my friends is moving very soon to go to grad school, so she wanted to gather all of us one last time before she goes. I’m sad that she’s moving away, but happy for since she’s pursuing her goals.

If you’re like me and you’re subscribed to tons of shopping emails, you know that pretty much every store is having a sale right now (ok, that’s an exaggeration, but a lot of stores are). Money’s a little tight so I’m trying not to do any shopping, but how cute is this Zara dress? I need a new pair of black sandals and I like these strappy H&M sandals that mimic the straps on the dress.

I have been terrible at cooking at home for the last few months, but I like the look of this pasta salad and it would be an easy enough dish to make for a picnic. When the weather is nice I really enjoy reading outdoors. I like to bring a book to a picnic for that downtime after you’ve just stuffed your face and you’re too full to move around. I’ve been hearing lots of good buzz about The Vacationers by Emma Straub and well done to the book designers because the cover just screams ‘summer reading.’

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I may be back on Monday with a new haircut? We’ll see!
