This is my excited-for-spring, Easter outfit. The trees are BLOOMING in full force, and when spring comes around I can’t help but get giddy for all the clothes I shall wear. I like how this outfit is a mix of dark, winter pieces and lighter, airy spring pieces. I also love the color combination of burgundy and this deep, rosy coral. Finding this color combo made me v. happy. Hope you like it!
Roads go ever ever on,
Over rock and under tree,
By caves where never sun has shone,
By streams that never find the sea;
Over snow by winter sown,
And through the merry flowers of June,
Over grass and over stone,
And under mountains in the moon.
It’s July, but hey, this beautiful song is in Lord of the Rings and I’m wearing a top with the LotR map printed on it! Gotta love that dork life. I bought this very inexpensive top from a Store Envy shop called Hearts & Minds, and I absolutely love it. I knew I had to style an elfish outfit around it and so I paired it with this chiffon skirt I bought at Piperlime over three years ago. I love how much this dreamy outfit flows.

Ever read The Wind in the Willows? This ~fashion~ post has nothing to do with the book, except that it’s soon to be spring. 😉 I felt the vibes here, even though there’s so, so much snow in the background. Ah well. It’s pretty.

Ever put together an outfit you really like but then get nervous about actually wearing it? I really loved this skirt but it’s kind of hard to wear with my proportions. The asymmetrical hem is long on one side and the front is super short, so to balance the hem I knotted the skirt on one side and added a kimono to make this outfit a little more flowy. Then of course I added knee socks, because of course. I do like the finished effect.
This skirt. Well, this skirt is from Easy Pickins, a very affordable place to shop here in the Yonkers/Bronx area. The pickins are usually easy, providing you wade through the stocked clearance racks and really search for gems. This skirt is one of those gems. I initially bought it to wear with my Jordan Baker/flapper costume for Halloween, and have had to think of new ways to incorporate it into a normal wardrobe.

I love long, drapey things and anything white/cream/beige. I am loving soft colors lately. It has since gotten colder here in New York and impossibly rainy, but on the day I took these it was a perfect sunny, early autumn day. This climbing ivy is legit. And I will keep wearing these Nasty Gal boots while the weather—and my pedicure—holds out!
I wore this to an early birthday celebration at Havana Cafe in the Bronx. It was hot hot hot out and we sat out on the patio during brunch and just soaked up the sun and sipped cocktails. That was a perfect pre-birthday celebration for me.

Happy Monday! It has been a beautiful spring so far, alternating between 70 degrees and sunny, to 60s and rainy, which is to say, the perfect kind of spring. I always sort of dread when the heat builds up and burns everything away. Here are photos from a couple weeks ago when I went to my cousin’s baby shower.
