#Pinknic in Central Park

Hello everyone!

I know it’s been A MONTH since my last post, and I do apologize for that. Long story short, I transferred my blog to a new host site and went through a whole page redesign, which took a bit to get up and running. On top of that, I was in New York for work travel for my day job. So life has been crazy this last month, but I’m back & I’m better (Bryson Tiller, anyone?) and excited to continue my blogging journey.

Speaking of New York, I think I belong there. I have been to NYC before, but this trip just made me feel like I need to be in the city while I’m still young. While this last trip was mostly work-related, I was able to carve out time for some personal events. One of them was a Central Park #Pinknic, a meet-up for Boss Babes, Content Creators and Bloggers, hosted by the lovely founding members of Exclusively Social. I can’t say enough how thrilled I was to be able to attend this function, meet so many like-minded, inspirational ladies and grow my network across the country!

However, I did a poor job of packing an outfit for the theme of the #Pinknic, which was pink, girly & floral.¬†Thankfully my bestie (who lives in NYC) let me borrow this beautiful rose crochet cardigan of hers (I called it “vintage” Forever21, because it’s almost 10 years old!), which I paired over a simple black turtleneck crop top from Lulus, loose-fitting leopard shorts from Zara and gorgeous strappy heels by Report.

Do you think I fit the theme enough, working with what I had packed in my suitcase?!? You can find the exact shoes I’m wearing below, along with links to similar pieces of my outfit.¬†Also, the gorgeous red handbag pictured below is from TJ MAXX! SO many people thought it was a designer bag! (But I unfortunately can’t find it anywhere online.)

A special thank you to all of the #Pinknic event sponsors, including Gilly’s Organics, Mr. Mochi and The Bagel Store, plus our amazing photographer, Miss O Photo! I’ll be back in NYC for Fashion Week in September, and I seriously cannot wait. Stay tuned for a detailed travel post on all thing New York as well!

As always, thank you for reading!
