WEAR: High-Waisted Shorts

During the summer months, I usually stick to my preppy skirts & nautical mini dresses. But shorts are super fun to dress up (with an uber pretty silk blouse like above) or dress down (with a striped boat neck tee). High-waisted shorts like this Nishe one is a great go-to piece to add to your summer travel wardy. The high waist makes it dinner appropriate for those fabulush summer nights in the city…

SEE: Belmont Stakes

Cheer on the ponies at this annual competition, which is the last leg of thoroughbred racing’s Triple Crown. This year will be a little more festive than usual this year, as the entire horse-racing world—and plenty of casual onlookers—watches I’ll Have Another try to complete his trifecta. The thoroughbred is the first three-year-old to attempt the feat since Big Brown in 2008; the last competitor to accomplish it was Affirmed in 1978. via timeoutny.com

DO: Big Apple BBQ Block Party

Make the meat lover’s pilgrimage to Madison Square Park for this annual gut-busting ’cuefest. Some of the nation’s top pit masters—as well as chefs from local spots like Hill Country, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que and Blue Smoke—will be manning the flames, dispatching grub for $8 a plate. via timeoutny.com
