But, my favorite summer activity is going to the New York Philharmonic Concert in the park. Four times a year, the NY Phil puts on a free show and it's honestly the perfect way to spend a summer night.

The sun begins to set, the temps cool down to the perfect 70s, and yes the fireflies come out to play — it's like a scene straight out of a Nicholas Sparks' novel.
My go-to outfit for such an occasion is practical but stylish. I reach for comfy cut-offs and wedges so that I don’t sink into the grass. And even though it's summer, I still bring along a light jacket. I live in this tweed/army green topper.
