Sunsets and Off-Shoulders


I’ve recently started a new job and its the end of the school year for my kids, which means I’ve been swamped! I’ve been overwhelmed with keeping up with all end of year class parties, buying teacher gifts, playdates, while trying to keep a cooked meal on the table every night (I barely did it for one night this week…).  I love being a mom, but I’m sure all parents would agree, that we all can’t wait for SUMMER! June is the most insane time of the year for my schedule, and even though I feel like I’m drowning with the long list of “to do’s”, I try to take a moment for myself whenever I can.

Today, I found a very quiet serene spot in the Riverdale area of the Bronx.  If you look around, you’ll find some awesome places in New York with amazing views.  I spent about 30 minutes here and it was the best 30 minutes spent all week! It was QUIET! It was just me and my thoughts, allowing me to plan for the following week and all the crazy that heading my way.  It’s important for all of us to take time for ourselves.  We deserve it.  As a busy mom, its easy to get swept away with the chaos, but I do my best work when my mind is clear.  I needed this short breather, and now that I’ve discovered this hidden treasure, I will going back!

Click below for shopping details.  I’m obsessed with this bag! It’s sturdy enough to fill in with your summer essentials while looking super cute.  It’s going to be my summer staple, so don’t be surprised to see it in future posts.
