Day two of exploring New York City completely killed my legs and feet. According to the FitBit app, I walked over 9 miles. Central Park is somewhere between 2-3 miles in length, but we wove in and out and wandered the streets as well. We had the best brunch ever this day at a cute little restaurant called Rabbithole in Brookyln. I will definitely be writing a review of that place because if I had the chance, I would definitely go back.
This day wasn't extremely humid, but the heat was very hot that we took every chance to be in the shade. I'm sure the temperature reached the 90's. I wore this dress because it is very light and flowy, and the cutout on the back was a very nice touch. I usually never wear prints because they're just not my style, but this dress seemed like the perfect piece for a summer wardrobe. It's convertible, so you can wear it strapless as well. Additionally, this dress had a padded bust so that you could go bra-less and feel comfortable in the dress all day long. My sandals are from Steve Madden, and they are so comfy. They're pretty good walking shoes. I didn't think they would survive walking through Central Park, but they held up extremely well. I love these shoes because they are a nude-pink color, but there are also small crystals along the straps of the shoe that add a nice sparkle when walking in the sun.

Since it's summertime, Central Park's "The Lake" was open to rowing. I highly suggest checking this out if you get the chance. It's very relaxing and it's a really fun experience. You don't even need to have experience to know how to operate it. It's about $15 for up to four people on one boat, and you get the boat for an hour. If you want to stay longer, then you pay a little extra per each 30 minutes that you extend your time. We also walked through Sheep Meadow, and it was absolutely stunning. It was so green and nice, and the sun was setting, so the views of the buildings were just amazing to look at. Strolling down Central Park was very peaceful, and it was not as crowded as I thought it'd be during the summertime.
