Renee and I are now obsessed with Carl Schurz Park. It’s just gorgeous, especially when it’s a Saturday with the best weather possible—70 degrees and sunny. I threw on a tank top and my favorite boyfriend jeans for the occasion. To dress them up a bit, I added my Reed Krakoff sandals that I bought in Vegas way back when… they were a drunk shopping find (the best kind of find!). It’s amazing how you can pick up an accessory from years ago and find a new way to wear it—in this case, casual with jeans. In it’s former life, it had been paired only with dresses and sleek black ensembles. Fancy no more, but still highly functional! Reed Krakoff shoes in general are pretty comfortable, and I have to say that these are impressively easy to walk in considering the heel height. All hail drunk shopping!
Markus Lupfer Pigeon Love Elizabeth Dress $780
Inspired by beach motifs, this gorgeous (and no doubt flattering!) dress is perfect for fall. We always love a compact mini dress, and the print on this one really makes it stand out. We’d love to pair this with a leather jacket and booties as the weather cools down—very British model off duty! MARKUS LUPFER FTW.

I’ve lived on the UES for several year now, but only recently discovered Carl Schurz Park. It’s in the 80s by East End and is absolutely gorgeous—serene views overlooking the water, beautiful landscaping, and lots of fun events like free movie screenings in the summer and tree lighting ceremonies in the winter. It’s a great place to get away from the crowds in Central Park and just enjoy a peaceful afternoon of picnicking, reading, and sunbathing. I felt right at home exploring the park in my birks!
Proenza Schouler Cropped Jacquard Top $850
We’ve both been on the hunt for the perfect crop top, and this Proenza Schouler number is pretty much straight out of our dreams. It’s that great longish crop length to wear with both skinny jeans (when you want show a tiny bit of skin) and full skirts (when you don’t), and the print is out of control amazing. This is definitely on our wish lists for fall!

Renee and I always reevaluate our skincare and makeup routines every summer (see hers here!). This summer I’ve been obsessed with feeling fresh and naturally glowy. First step is perfect dewy skin, achieved quite elegantly in summer weather by a mixture of spraying Avene thermal water and topping it with a thin layer of BB or CC cream! I love this one by Armani—it feels incredibly light on your skin, but provides as much coverage as a normal foundation. To add some dimension, I add some Dior Lune with my finger to highlight my cheek bones and then sheer light pink blush on top. For the eyes, I’ve been obsessed with Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill mascara (lighter than my usual Lancome but provides the same effect!) and Marc Jacobs Highliner. I got a deluxe sample of Highliner with my insider card during my last Sephora visit, and I haven’t stopped wearing it. The color is a shimmery brown, so it looks natural but also gives a small sheen in the light. The last step is finishing with a spritz of my new favorite sublte-but-sweet fragrance—Si. If you decide to try my newly discovered summer beauty routine, you have to complete it by burning a Fresh candle. Believe me, one whiff and you’ll never go without it!
