Morning Walk in the Park







(Urban scarf, old Insight tee, True Religion shorts, Velvetine bag, Urban Sandals, Milor Italy purple ring)

I live for morning walks like these at this local park in Brooklyn Heights. The tree lined Cadman Plaza park always seems to look like fall with the abundance of scattered leaves. This place is picture perfect every single day. Although it looked beautiful, it was sweltering and so opted for one of my oldest printed tees along with probably the tiniest shorts I own. In this heat, less clothes the better! I do seem to always wrap something around my arms these days, and because I was planning on spending the entire days indoors at the Met, I threw on my favorite floral scarf. I love the print and the sheer, lightweight fabric. It moves and drapes perfectly. It was such a dreamy morning, so glad that I was there to take photos and capture the moment...just before the sun came out.

Oh wow, it took me a while to realize that was a scarf. I thought it was a trendy kimono or cardigan, haha. Genius.

I love the balance between the feminine floral and more boyish tee.
