Officially Spring

Today was the first official day of Spring and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. Its still a bit chilly but the sun was shining and the sky was perfectly blue. I dressed up for the occasion and took my old bike out of the shed for the first time since last fall. Its incredibly difficult to ride in these shoes so I won't be attempting that again, but that didn't stop me from going a little picture crazy. This vintage dress has been mine for almost 3 years, but I hardly ever wore it because it was so long. Over the winter I shortened it and like a butterfly coming out of its cocoon it was ready to fly out of the closet. Hopefully now it will have the chance to be on heavy rotation in the coming months.
Vintage dress and matching belt, BP cardigan, Jeffrey Campbell oxfords

  28. What an uh-may-zing dress! The butterflies print is just so darling. it's crazy how much a few inches off of a hemline can change the look of a dress. I had these two gorgeous dresses that I simply never wore, but when I finally got around to shortening them, Bam! go-to summer staples.

    I wish it would warm up a bit over here! Funny that it's pouring rain in CA, yet you can go biking in a dress and a sweater in NY :P
