Another month has come and gone and now it’s time to get August started! I am a very bittersweet about the fact that it’s the last month of summer. I love the summer but, at the same time, fall and the holiday season are my favorite times of year. What’s most important is for us to enjoy this month and soak in as much summer as we can. For me, August is about transitioning for fall. So, coming up on the blog will be back to school and fall fashion inspired posts. August may feel like an in-between month, but for those of us living in cold weather states, we need to enjoy every moment of it. Let’s get down to business already. Here are a few of my favorite things for August…
OUT TO SEA
Love to go sailing on a boat but can’t get away? Then take a boat ride along the Hudson River! It is a great way to enjoy a beautiful day and feel like you’ve taken a mini break from the city. Plus, you get beautiful views of the Manhattan skyline.
Before I even start looking at fall fashion, I check out all of the summer sales. It’s the perfect time to stock up on swimwear, sundresses, and flats for when summer returns again.
Speaking of flats, I am obsessed with these shoes by M. Gemi. They may be on the pricey side, but they are an excellent quality and well worth it. I need this sleek, sophisticated, and stylish flat in my life, don’t you think?
I like to have friends over for a dinner party at least once during the summer. To some that may seem really easy, but we are all so busy, it’s a lot harder to get together than you might think. For my next dinner party, I have to have these beautifully designed flatware and trays by Suite One Studio.
SOAK UP THE SUN
There are a lot of ways to enjoy New York City in the summer. Whether you’re eating the a king at Smorgasburg, playing games in the park, enjoying cocktails at a rooftop bar, or watching a movie in Bryant Park, there is something for everyone. Get outside and enjoy the beautiful days ahead!
When it’s so hot out, I try really hard not to overheat my hair by using the blow dryer everyday. Now I am obsessed with Oribe dry texture spray because it gives my hair thickness without having to use heat.
