What’s your favourite thing about summer? It’s got to be sunshine, blue skies, and time spent with friends. Which is exactly what we got to celebrate when we spent the day in New York with fashion bloggers Charlotte Bridgeman and Laurie Ferraro.

Charlotte, the Aussie-born, NYC-based gal behind Winston & Willow, showed us her favourite spots in Soho before we headed out to Coney Island, where we met up with Laurie for ice cream, selfies and a stroll on the beach. Charlotte’s Barra sandals were perfect for the sweltering streets of Manhattan, while Laurie’s iQushion flip flops are the ideal shoe for sandy shores.

Whether you’re spending the next few months in the city or heading to the beach – or both, like Charlotte and Laurie – one thing’s for sure: it’s time to enjoy summer, your way.
