Belvedere Castle

I'm very sad to share that I have returned home from my favorite city. It's been a crazy few weeks with moving around and getting readjusted to the Ohio lifestyle. I've finally gotten around to writing this post on the beautiful Belvedere Castle! It's located right in the middle of Central Park and right around the corner from the Met Museum.

I wish it wasn't as crowded as it was so we could get more wider shots but I'm so happy with how the photos turned out! The view from the two outlooks were stunning and it was so neat walking up the stone spiral staircases. It was a nice day to walk around the lake in front of the castle too. It adds to the medieval atmosphere and you get to play with all the little ducks & turtles (:

The dress is a free people number and I thought it matched perfectly with the neutral colors of the castle. These sandals were a new purchase from the recently reopened Melissa store in Soho. Side note, I never knew these shoes had such a strong scent...?? Literally the shoes have such a distinct fruity smell I would get whiffs as I was walking. Still not sure if I like that or not but it's different! The store itself is actually a very cool concept store so if you are in the NY area and like to shop I would check it out!

After we finished our exploring we stopped at a couple food trucks and stuffed ourselves with crepes & hot dogs (a disgusting combination I'm aware). I'm glad we made the time to go visit this hidden place before we headed out of the city. I already miss my life our there, my goal is to be back out to visit by the winter time! And it would be so gorgeous to see the castle covered in snow ugh! Now I have to go back to blogging Ohio locations, so I'm gonna have to start getting real creative. Until next time (:
