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!
This past Sunday was absolutely gorgeous as the sun was out, it was in the high 30's, and there was a fresh pile of soft wet snow on the ground. We walked about a mile through the park, shuffling in our heavy snow boots through the slush, and trying to get as close as we could to the many geese whom we thought of as our little friends. Although the ground was cold and wet, the sun was warm. After our noses and cheeks became red and our hands felt like icicles we stopped at a cafe for cider and tea, grinning and smiling because sometimes, winter can be pretty after all. shirt - express // necklace - vintage // blanket cardigan - anthropologie; available in gray here // jeans - marshalls (old); I like these // bag - urbanoutfitters; in another post here as reversed side // snow boots - sorel
