Mon, July 12: Lunch In The Park

Dress:  NY & Co  I  Belt:  NY & Co  I  Shoes:  Jessica Simpson via SYMS  I  Earrings:  H&M
Photos:  Carolyn Bayas  I  Location:  Central Park

Ok, I love this next series.  I'm kind of all about the series photos, aren't I?  Anyway, we thought this light post was super amazing and wanted to use it.  So,  I had Carolyn click the camera setting over to Sports and made her stand there with the button pushed down while I ran up, jumped and swung around...  You know, like Gene Kelly did while he was Singin in the Rain.  Except in my case, I was in 4 inch heels and a dress and it was 95 deg outside.  Anyway, I thought for sure I could do it cause, remember this photo?  Piece of Cake.

OK, so here I go.  I'm checking out the post, doing a routine volleyball "spike" approach...

I'm there, I'm there...Carolyn you getting this???

Awww, I totally suckered out and did this very lady-like lean back, leg kick-up.  In the end I think my way was safer for everyone.  I'm happy enough leaving the acrobatics to the professionals:

One quick note about this getup:  I wish I had taken a close up of the dress.  The pattern is kind of basic but kind of busy at the same time - little blue and gray circles.  Sometimes when you have a dress like that, you almost need a belt to break up the pattern, so your body doesn't get lost.  I decided to go with that fuschia belt for a blast of color.  In the end, I was also pretty happy with the way the turquoise earrings and mustard pumps complemented the belt and dress pattern.  I wasn't sure at first, but in the end said 'what the hay.'  

Sometimes, it's not only for horses.
