You’ve seen this bag before on the blog. My one and only love, as well as the most bright red piece in my wardrobe. A statement-making bag is another summer essential to add to the list. Other summer essentials? Movies in the park and a glass of good chilled wine. MMMMmmmm. How are you all spending your Saturday. I am taking mine super slow. Curling up with a good book at the park sounds pretty delightful right now.

Summer heat in the city calls for long and floaty things. You know, things that actually allow you to breathe. This dress is the bees knees when it comes to keeping me cool.
In other news, here are a few things that I need to do before this summer is over:
Go to the beach (Can’t believe I still haven’t done that here)
Update my playlist (any recommendations?)
Clean out my closet (like really clean out my closet)
Get back to my tradition of keeping to my summer reading list (I used to be such a bookworm!)
Sleep in longer on the weekends (Too much stuff to do!)
Take a long nap in the park (Because it’s so friggin nice)
Ride a roller coaster (Because it’s been too darn long since I really screamed)
Watch the final Harry Potter movie
How was your weekend? I spent mine in NYC, and even though it was humid and hot to the max, it was still a lot of fun! Walked through Central Park in a light rain, found a bad-ass Malaysian restaurant in Chinatown, had our destinies laid out for us by a lovely little man on the street at night, relaxed in an air-conditioned Barnes and Nobles with magazines and books by Jhumpa Lahiri, stimulated our eyes at the MET, and made our tummies full with hamburgers and fries from Shake Shack. Oh, and just to let you know, the Trader Joe’s near Union Square is full of super amazing looking men doing their grocery shopping. Weekends are the best!
These images were taken a few weeks back, during a wonderfully slow weekend right here in Philly. Bonnie and I had a picnic in the park. We shared my favorite Vietnamese lemongrass tofu sandwich and snacked on cherries and celery sticks with hummus. It was the perfect way to spend a lazy Sunday. Yes, indeed.
