Friday Fancies: Picnic in Central Park

Ruche Dress $87.99, ASOS Bag $53.79, Forever21 Earrings $3.80, Nordstrom Shoes $99.95 , Forever21 Hat $10.80, Lulu's Ring $13, Tory Burch Sunglasses $165

One of my favorite things to do in the summer is have picnics in Central Park. Brett and I get strawberries, grapes, cheese, crackers and any other junk food we might be craving and hop over to Central Park to relax and people watch. Sadly, we don't do it often enough as most weekends are taken up in the summer with family get togethers or jobs. That's why this summer I made a goal to go to Central Park at least 5 times. It may seem like an easy enough goal but sometimes life gets in the way and before you know it, it's August and summer is almost over so I'm hoping we reach that goal. *fingers crossed* :)
I first saw the dress from Ruche and knew that I needed to incorporate it into my Friday Fancies and immediately envisioned myself taking a walk through Central Park with it. While the shoes might not be so practical, I felt that they were the perfect compliment to the outfit and couldn't help but putting them in there. Realistically, I'd probably wear black sandals with the outfit but I digress. And how perfect is the bag from ASOS?! It's perfect to carry all your picnic goodies and anything else you might want to throw in there (i.e. flats to switch into when you're tired of walking in heels). Haha.

One of the picnics we had last summer. How I wish to be in shorts and a tank top. Summer, get here already!

Happy Friday!
What are you guys up to this weekend? Tomorrow, my girlfriends and I are going to IMAT's in SoHo and grabbing sushi for dinner. I can already smell the sushi. Yumm. I'll definitely make sure to snap some pictures of the IMAT's show for you guys!

Have you guys ever had a picnic in Central Park? Or what's your go-to picnic outfit?
