I’ve been to Central Park a million times, but somehow I never made my way up to the Resevoir. Rebecca finally introduced me to it a few weeks ago, and it’s now one of my favorite places in the city. It’s instantly refreshing to be near water, and when you make your way about halfway around the jogging track, you find yourself on this adorable little bridge. It’s the perfect place to admire the gorgeous views and just take a break from the city’s fast pace. Doesn’t it almost look like I’m in Disneyland? I’ll definitely be back here again soon!
Clockwise from left: Gap 1969 Bleached Boyfriend Denim Shorts $25.99 (Orig. $49.95), Kate Spade Saturday Roundabout Sunnies $50, TOMS Black Burlap Classic $54, Annelise Michelson Double Gunmetal Carnivore Ring $395, Alexis Bittar Gunmetal Pyramid Post Earring $95, Loeffler Randall Mini Agenda Bag $325, Sunday Somewhere Spot On Cap $59, H&M Jersey Top $12.95.
My favorite weekend look is an easy tee with some slouchy denim shorts, preferably bleached denim. I practically live in this outfit every weekend of summer, with an added hat and sunnies when the need arises! TOMS are pretty much the best shoe to match—you can easily take a detour into Central Park while doing your Sunday errands and not worry about the dirt paths ruining your Givenchy sandals. They’re $54 and charitable too as you’ve probably heard… when you purchase one shoe, TOMS gives a shoe to a child in need. ONE FOR ONE! When it comes to weekend jewelry, I always make sure that I have earrings and a fun ring no matter how lazy I’m feeling. That way I’m “covered” if I run into anyone in the industry (if you don’t have a full arm party, at least a finger or two adorned!). Worst-case scenario, I’ll hide under a fun hat—enter this adorable spotted Sunday Somewhere cap!
Bernardaud x Jeff Koons Banality Series Set of 6 Bread & Butter Plates $380
As you know, Rebecca spent the first part of her Fourth of July and then the whole week afterward gushing over the Jeff Koons Retrospective at the Whitney Museum. Renee has yet to see it, but his Banality Series caught her eye at Bernardaud. Wouldn’t it be amazing to host a dinner party on these plates? Talk about a conversation starter. They’re altogether creepy and disturbing in their insane kitsch. It seems to us like these sculptures were born to sit on plates as well in their previous forms… that in itself may be the perfect commentary on art intersecting with the every day!
Rebecca & Renee
I wasn’t really treating my body properly for a long time–I love indulging in French fries, and diet Coke is my addiction–but for the past few months, I’ve really been focusing on getting myself fit and healthy. My boyfriend is all about a healthy lifestyle and introduced me to these morning smoothies. They’re absolutely delicious and easy to whip up in the morning. Wanted to share the recipe with all of you–it’s an amazing way to start your day, especially if it’s following a quick workout!
Put these in your blender in this order:
-One cup water
-One scoop Sunwarrior vegan protein powder – chocolate
-1/2 scoop of Green Vibrance (concentrated green superfood – tastes pretty awful on its own but totally fine in the shake. Its one of of the most nutrient dense things you could put in your body!)
-Sprinkle of chia seeds
-Cinnamon (to taste)
-1 capful of fulvic acid (amazing for your digestive system – helps your body absorb energy-rich nutrients and process vitamins, minerals, and herbs)
-1/2 frozen banana
-1 cup frozen or fresh berries – I use blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries (if not frozen, add a small handful of ice)
Blend and enjoy! These set me straight for healthy eating all day and really make me feel great. They give you energy, are super filling, and I swear has helped get my skin glowy and even-toned. I can’t imagine starting my day without one!
