Walking the Esplanade or Boardwalk
Spend an evening strolling the esplanade in Battery Park City, or your local boardwalk. The green of peridot pairs perfectly with nautical navy and white, a trifecta of colors reminiscent of the ocean swells just beyond the harbor.
Picnic in the Park
Central, Prospect, or wherever the grass is green and there’s enough to spread a blanket– you can’t go wrong with a picnic in the park. Go all out with a gingham dress and romantic accessories, like these stunning heart-shaped peridot pieces.
What better way to start your Sunday-funday than a visit to the farmer’s market? Keep it cozy and casual with denim and a simple white blouse, then pair with delicate silver accessories to give your look a sophisticated, ladylike edge. Pendant necklaces with quirky, unique charms, like this circle and key, are especially cute with this laid-back look.
Peridot has that cat-eye glow–what perfect way to wear it than paired with leopard print? The bag is a subtle touch, and classic cuts keep the gems and prints from being too much.
