  One of my favorite things to do in the Summer is walk around Central Park. It's the perfect break from the hustle and bustle of the city and the colors are so incredibly vibrant this time of year. The key is to avoid Central Park South-- head North towards Turtle Pond and the Delacorte and you'll avoid most of the tourists and horse carriages. It's a great spot for a picnic on the weekend or to catch a little sun in the City. New Yorkers tend to get pretty pale in the Winter so we try to return to a healthy flesh color whenever possible. We don't take our parks for granted! Thankfully, companies like Alternative Apparel have made protecting the environment part of their core values. They source all of their cotton from sustainable farms in Peru and all of their dyes are eco-friendly. Every color is made from plants or indigenous insects. They make great (and affordable) clothing that you can feel fantastic wearing because you know it wasn't made with harmful chemicals! It's win-win all around! You can learn more about all the cool things they're doing: here! So where do you go when you need to recharge? Shoutout any other brands you know of that have a small environmental footprint!! I love to hear about them!  Alternative Apparel tank top and shorts (similar) / Banana Republic woven belt / Tretorn for Club Monaco sneakers / Giles & Brother bracelet / Nixon Watch / Warby Parker sunglasses
