Springtime in NYC is the most beautiful time of year. Full, colorful, bright blooms, light jacket weather, sunshine, long walks (as in, walking everywhere). I absolutely love this time of year. Winter and I are not friends one bit, but the cold and snow does force me to appreciate the springtime even more. I bought this black and white striped dress for $12 at a random side street shop in midtown, and absolutely love it. It is is so flowy and perfect with a denim jacket or sweater. I paired it with a hat since it was very bright out that day, and of course...sneakers! I think this would have looked even better with white converse, but as I think those shoes are extremely uncomfortable, I've opted for nikes. Hope everyone is having a great week so far!
This was my outfit of the day last Saturday, and I will probably be wearing something similar this weekend. Weekends to me = casual, comfy, and low-maintenance. This means sneaks, a basic tee, comfy jeans, a beanie or hat, and zero make up. Plus, you never know what adventures you may be having. In this outfit I ended up walking over 7 miles that day! It started as brunch with some girlfriends, meeting Kyle in Central Park, walking across from the west side to the east side, and then back up to Harlem for Fast and Furious 7 (this movie...in one word? EPIC!). I absolutely LOVE weekends in the city. They are full of possibilities, exploring new places, eating good food, and hopefully relaxing at a park as well. The weather this Saturday looks a lot like it was last weekend - sunny with a high of 75 - so I plan to be spending the majority of it outside!
Now that it is officially spring, I am trying to slowly coax myself into adding more color to my wardrobe. Yet everyday, I find myself continually drawn to blacks, grays, whites, and more blacks. This denim jacket was a huge splurge for me but I have been looking for a good quality jean jacket that was comfortable and flattering, and with my birthday money and giftcards...I couldn't say no to this one! It is so comfortable and already feels worn in--I can't wait to wear it as the weather warms up and I no longer need a coat when I go out!
Also my husband takes really great photos of me! He is such a good sport when I bring out my camera and ask him to take a few shots, haha ;).
