The weather is finally consistently warm here, so I’ve started taking lunch breaks at one of favorite places in the city. It’s a park on the Mississippi that’s absolutely gorgeous. The views of the skyline are stunning, the flowers are blooming and the people and their dogs are happy.
This park is one of the hidden gems of Minneapolis! It’s up there with Minnehaha falls and the Stone Arch bridge for must see destinations if you’re visiting the Twin Cities. It’s not really an island, but you can get up close to the water, see a lighthouse, and watch the boats on the river.
When I’m not taking impromptu outfit post pics (and this really was impromptu–when am I ever going to learn to not leave the house without a decent camera?!), I’ve been reading a book over lunch at the park. This novel I got for free from a coffee shop nearby that gets uncorrected copies from a publisher. I decided while doing this outfit post that a book is the perfect summer accessory!
