white lace, black tee

Here's how I looked last Thursday for work. I'm absolutely obsessed with finding a pinafore but haven't just yet so finagled one out of my pretty lace Zara dress and a black tee shirt.

Living for the weekend

Its sad but true. All week I count down, make plans, daydream, all about the weekends. That hopeful anticipation starts to build on about Wednesday and goes straight through until Friday afternoon. I don't even mind getting up early on a Saturday or Sunday if it means more time spent outside in the sun and not at a computer screen. These past few weekends have been perfect, filled with beach days with girlfriends, sunset drives with the top down on Rich's truck, big breakfasts and bbq'd dinners. With friends coming in to NY, 5K's, parties, bar nights and beer garden afternoons planned, I just can't think straight at work I'm so excited.
Anyways its been nothing but shorts and sneakers for me recently. Here's how I looked last Sunday when I went to Long Island for the day to go to the beach and have dinner with my mom. Remember this little corner of wooded beauty in my mom's backyard? I haven't taken a picture back here in over a year!

Liberty & Lace

This is my most beautiful skirt, its from JCrew and Liberty of London's spring collaboration and I am in love with it. The fabric is a work of art, beautiful water colored flowers in brilliant colors on a smart office-appropriate piece. I'm always whining about how hard it is to find work clothes, but lately I just make a beeline for the JCrew sale rack and know that I'll find just what I was missing.
I paired it with the vintage shell from the Brimfield Antique Fair a few weeks ago and was my lucky find and only purchase. It buttons up the back and has neat little grosgrain bowtie, a collar with an intricate trim and fits like a dream. After eyeing up about 20 tops similar to this on on Etsy, it was fate to find one that seemed made just for me.

Little gingham

Today I wore a little vintage dress with a teeny gingham pattern, eyelet trim and ruched detailing its just what the perfect spring weather calls for. I spent the day at work but took a break to have lunch in Central Park soaking in the beautiful breezy day.

Maytime

A little update from my life which has been super fun but also busy. All of the pictures are from my phone which has become my primary camera because its so small and easy to carry, and a few even made it to Instagram (@kallieish)
Shoegazing.
A night at the Rodeo (Bar) for Joe's birthday, and also, Pin-up-Party.
Central park strolls and NYC streets in some of moodiest weather I've ever experienced, we cycled through all four seasons these past few weeks
Adult Swim network party at Roseland Ballroom where Kanye West performed and ranted. It wasn't really my scene but hanging out with the ladies I work with was.
Splurging on a much needed weekend bag for all my upcoming travels.

Brimfield, where I managed to take only one picture while I was there.
Homecooked meals and pretty ciders.
Its finally bike riding weather.
