Simple Summer Pleasures

Good morning, lovelies! We're having such gorgeous weather here in NYC the past two days. And weather like this makes me just want to savor all of the goodies that summers in the city have to offer.

Long strolls in the park, gorgeous blooms at the market, mojitos, and of course dining al fresco in the little hidden backyard gardens.

Can't wait to get out of work today so I can take it all in!

Have a wonderful day! xoxo
