PICNIC IN CENTRAL PARK

BUCKET LIST MOMENT

If you are planning a visit to New York, no, start again. Even if you aren’t planning a visit to New York, one thing that should be on your wish list of things to do in life is – Picnic In Central Park. I don’t think I need to explain. But imagine yourself in a scene of your favourite New York movie. Thats basically it. All of sudden you realise that you are part of a film, thats when you expect Sarah Jessica Parker or Kim Catrrall to show their faces from around the corner. I could give you so many tips for organising this perfect moment and even if you don’t plan to stay that  long in NYC, trust me you can squeeze it in.

We started the day early and instead of going to one of our favourite breakfast or brunch spots, we headed to Whole Foods, one on the Columbus Circle, just opposite the Central Park. There you can find pretty much anything you like, from doughnuts and pastries, to chia seeds, granola, sandwiches, pizzas and cakes. They have it all. I packed a little gourmet for four people, some cheese cake and watermelon juice too. We headed to eat.  After thinking of a perfect spot for a while we found two locations that weren’t totally covered in people, one was the rocky part at the 5th Avenue corner the other was that one opposite Columbus Circle. It was peaceful, beautiful and we a had view of skyline. Well a little bit of it.

Its something so easy to do, and a really fun thing for social moments. Maybe birthday lunch, or a summer reunion, if you pick a good crowd, picnic in Central Park can be something to remember forever.

Ako planirate posetu Njujorku, ne, počeću ispočetka. Čak i ako ne planirate posetu Njujorku jedna stvar koju svakako treba da uradite nekad u životu jeste piknik u Central Parku. Ne moram da objašnjavam. Zamislite sebe u sceni svog omiljenog filma. Mesto dešavanja – Velika Jabuka. Odjednom se nadjete u filmu i očekujete poznatu facu iza ćoška, ko drugi nego Sarah Jessica Parker ili možda Kim Cattrall. Mogla bih vam dati toliko saveta za piknik  i organizaciju ovog savršenog dogadjaja. Čak i ako ne ostajete dugo u Njujorku, vreme nije problem.

Mi smo kao i uvek na putovanjima i ovaj dan ustali rano. Umesto doručka na nekoj od super gradskih lokacija zaputili smo se u Whole Foods, supermarket zdrave hrane koji se nalazi na Columbus Circle kruznom toku. Tamo možete naći sve što vam pada na pamet. od krofni i kroasana, do čia semenki, granole, sendviča i pice. Oni imaju sve. Ja sam izabrala malu gozbu za četvoro ljudi. Kolače i sok od lubenice. Zaputili smo se na naš piknik doručak. Sledeća misija je bila kako naći dobru lokaciju. Pronašli smo dve, obe na zapadnom delu parka. Stene u donjem delu i hlad u gornjem. Bilo je mirno, lepo, bez gomile ljudi i imali smo pogled na zgrade koje okružuju Central Park.

Ovakav doručak je lako organizovati, a preporučujem piknik za sve moguće manifestacije, proslave pa čak i rodjendane. Ako izaberete dobro društvo, piknik u Central Parku može biti dogadjaj za pamćenje.

ABOUT THE OUTFIT

This outfit was probably my favourite through out the stay. I fell in love with the talented designer Lisa Marie Fernandez, her dresses, kaftans and swimming suits came to my attention while I was browsing on Avenue 32 website. I saw many beautiful pieces like this one that I wanted in the wardrobe. The decision was right. I wore this dress at least three-four times since I got it last month.

When picking shoes with it I wanted to stay simple. I didn’t have any flat sandals, but I knew that any pair of wedges, my lace up Chloe babies or these would be perfect. The comfort was not compromised and soon I was out of door.

Before I forget I must add how happy I am to also show you this new Valentino bag that I also wore a lot in New York. ITs classic piece, beautifully coloured classic piece. I first wanted it in bigger size, but it was sold out on Monnier Freres which is why I opted for this size, as it was just too beautiful to give up on. The decision was right. I wore it a lot through out July and feel that this bag goes with anything. What do you think?

Ova mi je verovatno omiljena kombinacja od svih iz Njujorka. Zaljubila sam se u rad talentovane dizajnerke pod imenom Lisa Marie Fernandez, njene haljine, kaftani i kupaći kostim zapali su mi za oko kada sam pretraživala sajt Avenue 32. Videla sam mnoge lepe komade, ipak, odluka je pala na pravu haljinu, već sam je nosila tri-četiri puta od proslog meseca.

Kada sam birala cipele, želela sam jednostavnost. Nisam ponela ravne sandale, ali sam znala da ce bilo koje od mojih Chloe platformi odlično ići uz ovo. Sjajna ideja jer osim što mi se kombinacija dopala, bilo mi je veoma udobno.

Pre nego zaboravim, moram dodati koliko sam srećna i zadovoljna kupovinom ove Valentino torbe. Nosila sam je dosta u Njujorku. To je jedan klasičan komad, i malo više od togaa. Prvenstveno sam želela onu malo veću, ali pošto je bila rasprodata na Monnier Freres sajtu odlučila sam se za ovu. Sda sam baš srećna zbog toga, nosila sam je mnogo u julu i zaista ide uz sve. Kako vam se čini?

    Tek mi je 15 , ali imam svoj blog. Volim da pisem i fotografisem ( mnogi kazu da umem to da radim) pa nisam videla bolji hobi za mene. Medjutim planiram da ovaj blog ugasim i kada budem dovoljno zrela kao ti otvoricu ga ponovo. A kada ga budem otvorila , imacu uzora-tebe. Ne , necu da kopiram tvoje postove od reci do reci. Bicu samo uporna , profesionalna i draga blogerka poput tebe , nadam se. Super su slike , a tekst savrseno smisljen. Outfit me ostavlja bez daha. Haljina je kao stvorena za tebe i super se uklapa uz pozadine fotografija. Primetila sam da imas jako autentucan ukus za cipele ( na primer one sarene papuce na stiklu , savrsene su ). :*
