Best Friends Means Friends Forever








Outfit Details:
vintage dress - Fellsmere Inn find
lace shirt (underneath) - H&M (last year, not current)
belt - from my mom's shop, Hourglass Consignment
oxfords - courtesy of Wanted
bag - courtesy of Coach
glasses - Ray-Ban

Considering I live rather close to Prospect Park, I'm embarrassed to admit that I have never explored it in its entirety. I pretty much stick to the open field near Prospect Park West, the duck pond, and the circumference. Why? Because I'm afraid I'll never find my way out and it will become another Blair Witch Project sequel. Or, maybe sometimes I'm lazy.

Lauren and I ended up covering a great deal of the park, which just gets prettier and prettier the more you explore. By the end of our excursion, we were tired, hot and had aching feet. I called Bobby and had him pick us up. There was no way we were walking four miles back home! Plus, you know, Blair Witch.

If you've been reading my blog a long time, you might remember Lauren. If not, meet Lauren! We've been best friends since we met in 6th grade. Having her here was exactly what I needed, and I admittedly sulked all day after she left. We've been friends for sixteen years (holy crap!) and I miss her all the time, but I know we'll be friends forever. She's a part of the family.

  5. I'm jealous. We moved a lot so I don't have those really long term friends. Especially not girls.
    It doesn't look like you need any 'hope you appreciate what you've got' talk though,... I can tell how much her friendship means to you by this lovely post.

  7. You make dork look so awesome. It's also pretty awesome that you and your friend has known you that long. I don't have that many friends from back then except for one I've known since Kindergarten. One last thing, kudos for acknowledging the Blair Witch.

  26. oh no! prospect is by far the greatest park in all the land! im so glad i live so close to it, i couldnt imagine not spending summer days basking on the lawn or getting lost in the woods. travel to the far end down near parkside ave on a sunday and visit the drum circle. its so beautiful and exciting to see so many brooklynite celebrating their heritage. aaah, prospect park might be the biggest reason why i love brooklyn so much.
