Ahh…Summertime just screams happiness, doesn’t it? Last weekend I was able to attend a fun event at Macy’s Union Square to kick off Summer! Everything about it just reminded me of some of my favorite summer things…. the clothes and accessories, the treats, and the colors!
I dragged my husband along with me, and although he was a bit reluctant to come, we had a great time. The biggest selling point for him was all of the FOOD! They really went all out on the food. My favorite thing was the Squeaky Pops in sparkling juice. I am totally going to try this trick over the summer. When you put the popsicle in the sparkling juice, it creates this delicious frosty coating that is to die for! I could have eaten 10 of these treats.
Then they had a lemonade bar, which was actually not lemonade, but a bunch of lemon candy that you could choose from and fill up a mason jar full. It was such a cute idea! And there were waiters walking around serving caprese samplers, grilled veggie sandwiches, and the most delicious s’mores cookies I have ever had!
One of the highlights for me was the runway show. I always love getting inspired with new ways of styling items, as well as checking out new trends for the season. I was loving all of the bold floral prints that were shown. And of course we took advantage of the photo booth with props (they printed out photos AND emailed them to you…so smart!).
One other cool thing about this event was that they were raising money to send kids to summer camp at the Y! If you donated $3 to the Y, you’d get 25% off your fashion purchase! And if you spent $100 or more you got a free beach towel that you could get monogrammed for free.
