Mama had a lens baby! Shannon and I decided to take her new lens out for a spin after work and snapped a lot of fun photos on the way to and from Rickys. Surprisingly, they capture the outfit really well. We weren’t so sure how they would turn out!
I wore this cute decorative HnM dress as a t-shirt. It was a really blustery day and needed to wear tights in order to keep warm. Later in the day – in my afternoon haze – I daydreamed this dress sloppily tucked into beat up true blue denim cut-off shorts, which only made me regret wearing the skirt with it. Rubbish. Well, there’s always next time right? Right.

Remember when we caught a glimpse of summer? Well, someone took it away. Violently. And now it’s really cold. (I am secretly excited to wear tights and boots for the next two days… shhhh.)
These photos were taken on a lovely (and rather warm) evening last week while watching the sun go down on the Hudson River. A picnic, a pier and people watching… what more do you need?

floral scarf: vintage Express (?!) it was my mom’s from way back when
shoes: Chelsea Crew

I’ve been cutting back on my shopping lately. I was doing so well until I saw this shirt, or should I say, until this shirt and it’s magnetic pull forced me to take it home with a gun to my head. Eeeeek, the things I’ll do for a little neon…

Laughter is a drug.
This is a real smile, a real doubled-over chuckle, a real glimpse into a coffee break and blog photoshoot with Shannon and I. None of the other photos matter after this one… we needed to laugh that day.
I dedicate this post to Shannon – my friend and photographer – for being so great, so beautiful and so incredibly funny.
I really wanted a tacky Florida t-shirt. Mission. Accomplished.
kids t-shirt: from Longboat Key ($5.99)

There’s only one place to wear a dress like this: Florida. The dress was shining bright amidst Sarasota’s tackiness (ok, it really wasn’t that tacky at all). But I wonder: can I pull this dress off in NYC? Maybe over a bathing suit on the Jitney? We’ll seeeeeee.
I’d like to extend a big thank you to my sister, Anna, for taking these great photos. She gets an extra ice cream scoop tonight for being such a good sister – no hand signals though, Anna.

This is me waiting outside of the Tampa airport for the rest of the crew to arrive for our girls-only vacation. I had already shed my sweatshirt and my black skinnies in the airport bathroom and threw the boots back on. This was 8:30am. I was exhausted and still really sick at this point. Good thing I had shades on to cover the mess! More vacation photos to come soon!
It proceeded to rain for the first two days of our trip and I went shopping in the rain in these boots, my bare legs and a sundress. I got so many compliments on these boots everywhere I went. Florida – get it together. I didn’t photograph that look, though… sorry blog lovers. You’ll see me wearing that look all Spring. Calm down.
shirt: I have no idea
shorts: Old Navy
