When it’s sunny and over 70 on a weekend, I consider it an honorary summer day. Nature’s timing was perfect, because I just got a fun sundress from Gwynnie Bee, and I could not wait to wear it. The painterly stripes and the retro feel made it perfect for both brunch in Harlem and thrifting in the East Village with new friends from Instagram, theheftyhideway and pussybow.

I also love snapping pics with public art, so I had to get a shot with this perfectly-textured “Giant Pod” sculpture by local Harlem artists Pedro Villalta and Monstserrat Daubon.
