Between work, blogging and life in NYC I don’t always have all the time to do those fun, recreational activities I used to. One of the biggest things I’ve missed out on is reading! I used to be a big book worm, reading every night before bed and always with my nose in a book – but sadly when free time goes out the window, so does some of those favorite things you no longer find the time for.
Over the weekend, we took a much needed stay-cation uptown and spent most of our days in Central Park! I took advantage of the time to catch up on a little light reading and crack open Everybody Rise – a new novel I’ve been eyeing every since I was invited to attend an event for it a while back with the author, Stephanie Clifford. It’s about an “outsider” Evelyn and her desperate and comical climb up the social ladder. Basically, a grown up gossip girl with a relatable twist and hilarious undertones… so yeah, I’m into it! I’ve just started but it’s so far it’s turning out to be the perfect end of summer read full of smiles and wit – you’ll like it, I swear!
Dressing like the social outsider I can sometimes be, I wore my current obsession – overalls for our second day of park fun! It was kind of cool over the weekend (78ish and slightly cloudy) so an over all & button down crop top combo was the perfect pair! To dress things up a bit I carried my leopard clutch, which is somewhat out of place (kind of like Evelyn) but also somehow works. I kept things comfy with white sneakers and a Boater hat … again.
So what are you reading right now? I kind of sort of need to know everything about you like allll of the time
