Secret Summer Soirées


My modern, Midsummer Night's Dream.

With summer quickly coming to an end, it's only natural to look back at some of your favorite memories of the season. Those long days at the beach, that sweaty rooftop party, the sunny afternoons spent lounging in the park with a bottle of rosé...

The snaps above were taken at one especially memorable event, Secret Summer NYC, a Midsummer Night's Dream-themed cocktail and food festival that happened earlier this month at The Foundry in LIC, Queens. I tossed on this lightweight Reformation dress that I thrifted in Los Angeles, my roommate & hairstylist Shane Thomas helped me with a quick, romantic updo to deal with the heat (here's an easy how-to if you're interested), and I grabbed my favorite date (and photographer) to sample summery cocktails by brands like Cachaca 51 & Herradura Tequila, feast on unlimited oysters & farm-to-table eats, and listen to ragtime while hanging out in beautiful, ivy-lined courtyards. All in all, a day well spent!
