After a few weekends away from the city (in Vermont and Philly) it was great to be back in Brooklyn for a beautiful sunny weekend with friends. On Saturday my darling co-worker Emily and I went to a fabulous boozy brunch in Williamsburg at Randolph's. I love the vibe there - it's in a garage and has a cool industrial feel with graffitied walls and an old school Miss PacMan machine. After brunch we hit up the record fair at Smorgusburg on the Williamsburg waterfront. I really love livig in Williamsburg and I'm so excited for a summer of fun in Brooklyn! Hope you guys enjoy my day-in-the-life style blog posts!
I'm crazy in love with this look! It combines two of my favorite things, my eternal love for a pop of red and my relatively new affection for gingham (other gingham looks here, here & here). This skirt is my new favorite piece, and it's only $54 from Lulu*s! The cut is a dramatic bell and the color is a gorgeous bold orange-red, much more saturated than the image on their website. I added the gingham top from Zara to balance the shape and color of the skirt. The shoes I scored from Asos.com where they are already sold out, BUT they are still available on Amazon! They are the perfect nude sandal with an extra something with chevron detailing on the heel and almost graffiti-like coloring on the sides and underneath the toe. I shot this look in Prospect Park with Lydia and we stumbled upon these gorgeous white columns and knew they would make the perfect backdrop for this look. Do you love this look?

Three cheers from spring in the city! I'm loving the warmer weather and I had such a blast shooting this look with Lydia down in West Village. Tiny white flowers were falling from the trees and dancing through the wind. It was one of those moments where I fell back in love with New York. Any New Yorker will tell you life here can be a love-hate relationship with tough winters and grueling commutes, but on this gorgeous spring day everything felt just right. This dress is one of my new favorites from ModCloth. I love the juxtaposition of the simple cut and color with the floral collar detail. It's perfect for work or twirling around west village all afternoon. I paired it the dress with simple pale pink pumps and a ponytail for maximum playfulness.
So this one's for you New York, thanks for coming through and making me fall for you all over again after 3 tough yet lovely years.
