A few weeks ago, I posted a few things on my warm weather to-do list in (and around) the city, but it was laughably short compared to all the things I still want to get around to before cooler temps drive me in to hibernation (kidding, sort of. Do bears drink wine when they hibernate?). Something that's always on my to-do list is to visit more museums—NYC is chock full of 'em, and I've barely made a dent in that list during the last three years. It's not exactly a secret I'm making the beach a priority this summer, but I've got a few friends visiting over the weekends leading up to Labor Day, and there's no better time to visit a museum than when someone is in town and you don't know how else to entertain them...and appease that voice in your head that begs them not to ask you to go to Times Square—especially before you've had a drink (or two).
I prefer to be as casual & comfortable as possible when I visit museums (see here). I usually end up at a nearby bar for a drink afterwards so comfy sandals are a must, and a carry-all tote is perfect for the random bits of paper I seem to accumulate whenever I visit anything cultural, not to mention stashing my camera when I don't want to look too much like a tourist. My simple summer make-up trick? A swap of Nars Satin Lip pencil in Yu & oversize, reflective sunnies.
