This weekend, I spent my sunday picnicking at the park with polka dots and my pup!
The weather has been beautiful lately! We're smack in the middler of summer and fall, it's cooled down quite of bit, making the temperature just right! So Paris and I decided to take Waffles on a little polka dot picnic at Washington Square Park.
It's no secret I'm a polka dot enthusiast, (basically everything I own is dotted) so I had to our bring my signature spots to our sunday adventure! Our blanket is actually an old shower curtain in disguise, (curtains work the best because of their durability) and the feast included fried chicken, biscuits, strawberries and lemonade served on polka dot plates, confetti glasses, spotted silverware and a dotted thermos (are you noticing a theme here?).
The picnic started out so pretty... but after fighting off waffles with much strength and creativity, we quickly devoured it! Here's the aftermath...

Did you happen to notice my basket? Last time I was in Arizona, I found this amazing cross-body picnic basket and thought it would be perfect for the city! Soon after, my mom sent it me in NYC and I have been itching to use it ever since! It makes picnicking a breeze and it's so easy to tote around the city!

Twirl time! I was also excited to get one last summer look out of one of my favorite twirl-worthy dresses. I dressed it down with keds and a denim jacket, but was still able to spin with a smile. 1, 2, 3, Twirl!
What are you plans for the weekend? If the weather permits it, I challenge you to sneak in one last picnic before we're up to our turtle necks in knee-high boots and pumpkin spice lattes! Ta-ta for now....
