I finally managed to shoot in Central Park! I’ve been meaning to all Summer, but it’s quite a trek to get up there living in Financial District, and even farther to get to the pretty parts which are mostly all on the West side. I figured this mint green dress from Chicwish would be the perfect outfit to shoot in the park, especially since I paired the dress with sneakers for a casual weekend look. However in retrospect shooting in Central Park on a sunny Sunday was not the best idea, as it was so crowded. We had to shoot quickly in between times when people were walking away, and I got creative and decided to sit on the railing for some shots. Trust me, my butt hurt but it was all worth it!
I’ve become more and more fond of sneakers over the years. Perhaps it’s because I live in NYC and have to walk everywhere. There’s nothing better than wearing a pair of comfy sneakers and not having to worry about my feet hurting and having to jump in a cab. This white leather pair from Kennel & Schmenger are seriously the prettiest sneakers I’ve ever owned. They are just so nice, and the pearl and crystal embellishments are simply stunning. I honestly never thought sneakers could look this pretty! The brand is German and all the shoes are made in Germany, but they are conveniently available at Nordstrom’s in the US.
I paired the sneakers with a mint green dress for the perfect casual Summer look. This Chicwish dress is so comfortable, I can basically eat as much as I want in it and you would never know. I also love the refreshing color and ruffles detail, it gives the dress a feminine boho chic vibe. I chose a black Charming Charlie shoulder bag to go with the white sneakers, and completed the outfit with lots of colorful accessories and a pop of yellow on my nails.
