autumn in central park

Every now and then the stars align and JD and I will get the same weekend schedule. This weekend was one of them. Saturday morning we woke up early (for us), picked up coffee and almond croissants, and went up to Central Park for a breakfast picnic. We found a cozy spot on top of a hill by the falconer statue and snuggled up against a cool rock to eat. The little sparrows were big fans of all of our flakey crumbs. I was convinced they were going to sit on our blanket with us.

It was chilly when we left the apartment so I bundled up in a blanket scarf, my newest obsession, that I have been very excited to finally wear. I am probably going to live in them this winter now that wearing a blanket outside of the comfort of your home is socially acceptable. I really love this one is from Urban Outfitters. JD picked it up for me in Brooklyn a few weeks ago and I have been itching to wear it ever since. For our morning in the park I paired it with a black long sleeve shirt, bordeaux pants, a leather jacket, and suede ankle boots that are perfect for long walks.

What did you do this weekend?


  1. Definitely obsessed with your whole outfit! Everything is perfection! And definitely jealous of your Central Park breakfast, how fun!!

  6. What a perfect fall outfit! Your scarf looks perfect for this colder weather. I have those same boots from Sam Edelman and live in them in the fall, such a great closet staple.
    Your Cuyana bag is beautiful, have you been happy with it?! I have been considering that crossbody style from them; I have the cosmetic cases and a scarf from Cuyana and love them both. Really well made pieces!

    1. I've only had it a week but I really love it so far. It's light and sturdy and fits all of the essentials while still being small enough that you won't lose your keys in it. I'd definitely recommend it!

  7. Great scarf. Looks thick, cozy & soft. Might I add, love the rich fall color pant. You look great. (new post today)
