Home sweet city

Notice anything different about my pictures? You guessed it! I forgot my hairbrush at my mom's house. Oh, wait. Were we not thinking the same thing?
Here I am, camped out in Brooklyn for the week and its absolutely wonderful, especially the beautiful view of Manhattan. Today there was sun at the end of the day and the first hint of spring was in the air. Pink and green and floral felt perfect for the first time in months I'm not frozen solid in the photos. All I want to wear for the next few months is various shades of pink and green (just like the buildings in the background). The rest of this week should be interesting since I forgot half of what I meant to pack. Could that mean a good excuse to do a bit of shopping?
Gap tee, thrifted sweater and belt, H&M skirt, Steve Madden via Century 21 shoes

  6. That skirt is fantastic! Especially paired with that sweater.

    Looked like you had an awesome time in Turkey too. I do love snooping through people's holiday photos (in the least creepy way possible!) haha

  8. This background is amazing! (Your outfit is super-cute too, I'm just stunned by the city-scape). I definitely have to visit Brooklyn when I'm in New York.

    So you're back from Turkey? When do we get to see picture of that?

  15. Hey missy! Okay so as I was clicking to leave a comment I saw a glimpse of the post below--you went to Istanbul?! The heck?? How did I not know this! Definitely need to do some catchup asap. Anyway, I love your cozy little cardigan with your spring-y outfit! The "in between" season, like spring and fall, are my favorite :)

  16. I love that skirt! It's so bright and cheerful and will be great all spring and summer. I have serious spring fever right now, haha.

    How did you get the background so crisp in that first picture while you're so blurry? I love how it looks!
