Back for another round of Sunday Favorites with my friends Cindy & Mary Ann! Today I’m starting with spring in Central Park.
Spring in Central Park
This week we had one of those perfect spring days in New York City. You know, the ones where the weather is perfect. Not a degree too cold or too warm, but just right. Rain was in the forecast for the rest of the week, so we took off mid-week and walked almost 11 miles crisscrossing the park. We started up at about 94th Street and walked around the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, walked through gardens, over the Bow Bride, the Bethesda Fountain, the Boat House, and then back to the east side where we walked by The Metropolitan Museum of Art. It was spectacular and absolutely had to make one of my top five favorite things this week! The entire city is in bloom at the moment, and I did not want to miss out.

Outfit of the Week
We’ve decided to do an outfit of the week. We are still very much in the thick of spring which means most days are still quite cool. A jacket is almost always a must! Blazer season is upon us. I love a black blazer that can be dressed up or down. You can even wear a black blazer over workout pants, throw on a scarf and ballet flats, and no one would know. I’m wearing my new favorite stripe t-shirt from Old Navy, a silk bandana from Madewell along with the Cali Demi-Boot Jeans.
I am always prepared for wet weather and make sure to have a pair of sneakers with me in case of rain to protect my flats.
The trench that I shared in this post is still getting me through our rather cool spring. I was about to send it out to the dry cleaners knowing that it would be around $25 and then l realized I could wash it! I treated it with my natural stain stick (Thieves Household Cleaner, Thieves Dish Soap, and lemon essential oil). It had a coffee stain, a black grease stain and I spilled hand sanitizer on it. Everything came out and I hung it to dry and it looked perfect! This coat wins me over…again! And the best part is that it’s $130 from Everlane!
Make sure to check out the favorites this week from Cindy and Mary Ann!
