Sharing a spring fashion look I did a few weeks ago with my friend Arazelly  at the Brooklyn Bridge. I wore this look on Easter weekend but did a mini shoot with her for fun to officially shoot this look.

Arazelly is such a great photographer (as you can see from the pics) and as I am getting more into photography and this fashion blog thing, thought we would do a fun mini shoot by the bridge. If you haven’t been there is so much to do by Brooklyn Bridge Park. There is Grimaldi’s pizza, Jane’s Carousel, the park has so many activities itself especially in the summer like the kids water lab, soccer fields, walking and biking paths, etc…I also love walking in downtown Brooklyn near all the shops. If you are ever in NYC don’t miss going to Brooklyn and of course walking the Brooklyn Bridge (so beautiful!).

This past weekend we celebrated my husband’s 33rd Birthday with friends and family with a small BBQ at our house. It is finally getting warm and beautiful here in NYC and I am so excited for this weather. It is making me plan and book all of our summer trips. Do you guys have any great summer plans??

Festival Season Fashion

Festival season is upon us and that means festival season fashion is going to be all the rage. My favorite part about festival season fashion is how creative you can get with your style. This includes bright colors, fun prints, unique sunglasses, cut off shorts and fun jewelry. It is a time you can have your personality really stand out. I  am not going to Coachella this weekend, but I do have a few concerts to attend in NYC this summer and I love how you can dress so fun for the occasion.

I wanted to share with you a fun Kimono I got from Forever21. I love Forever21 because you can find so many trendy items for such a great budget friendly price. I have worn this Kimono quite a few times including to Epcot when we went to Disney World in February. I love the fringe and the bright colors of this Kimono. I can see it being worn with shorts, some gladiator sandals and a fun hat if you are planning on hitting any of the festivals this year. Are you going to any festivals or concerts this season? What are you wearing to them?

Spring Scarves

I love spring scarves. They are so light weight, they come in so many fun spring prints to spice up your wardrobe and keep you warm on those chilly spring days without making you too hot. There are so many fun spring accessories but this one is one of my favorite. You can wear spring scarves with a dress, denim on denim, with a spring trench coat, and even with leggings or after working out to spice up your casual outfit. I have styled spring scarves in so many different styles and they have all looked wonderful. I hope you are adding spring scarves to your wardrobe, I feel it is a must! If you need any advice on how to transition your wardrobe to spring, read my article here. Now all we need is the spring weather to come and stay in New York!

Let me know in the comments below how you style spring scarves xoxo.

Happy Monday! I hope you guys had an amazing weekend. It is finally spring, hopefully the weather starts to warm up soon. I have so many spring dresses I can’t wait to wear. Did you guys do anything fun this weekend? We went to the H&M in Time Square for the H&M Ultimate Playdate event. H&M hosted an event Sunday morning, along with heymama.co for moms to attend where there was a beauty bar, arts and crafts section for kids, on site baby sitting, and the most delicious pastries ever. They also had a DJ and Lucas loves music so much so he had such a great time listening to the music. There was also a really fun mock “runway” with pretty much the most amazing / flattering lights ever that you can walk down and pretend you are on a runway.

I got to meet so many other moms including Patricia from www.cocotrish.com and Amber from www.barefootblonde.com.  It was great to meet other mom / bloggers and share some mommy experiences with active toddlers. The women at heymama.co are so nice and if you haven’t checked their site already, take a look because it is a great site supporting women and valuable articles. After the event we came back home and got Carvel ice cream for Lucas because he turned 18 months old! Time is definitely flying.

Olive Dress

Dress: Sold out similar here and here

Sharing this olive dress today. It is a sweater dress and would be great to wear in the winter. In the Fall I wore this dress with brown booties, but I can definitely see this dress paired with black tights and black boots for a more wintery look. Who is counting down the days until Christmas? We are!

Hey guys! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Sharing this from a few weeks ago when we went to the Queens Zoo. It was so much fun. Lucas loved all the animals, and it was an amazing fall day. I am wearing my favorite J Crew sweater I have been wearing non stop. It has been extra warm here in NY so I haven’t been wearing the sweater that much, but it is supposed to get colder this weekend, so I may be bringing it back out. Is everyone getting ready for the holidays??

Hey guys! This past Sunday we went to Williamsburg to visit my grandparents. They have lived in Williamsburg way before Williamsburg became what it is today. I grew up in that neighborhood and love coming back and visiting my family. One of the things we try and take advantage of, depending on our trip, is some of the cool restaurants & that gorgeous view of Manhattan. We wanted our Sunday to be low key, so we went to Vanessa’s Dumplings on Bedford Ave, so good and so cheap!!! We got the pork & vegetable dumplings and split the duck sesame sandwich. We bought some over to my grandparents and visited. Before we went back home, we took some time walking around by the river and took some quick pictures before heading back home. It is full on Fall weather and I am loving it. What is everyone going to be for Halloween next weekend??

Printed Navy Dress

DSC01507 DSC01503DSC01504

Dress: Target / Booties: Jessica Simpson   / Stockings: Macys

Hi Guys! Yesterday, I posted about this teal coat that I love and so many cute similar styles. Well the dress I wore underneath the coat, is such a good find. I ordered it online from Target, it was a bit big so I would order a size down. It is really comfortable & super cute. I wanted to look really cute for our date night in Montauk, but wanted to be comfortable at the same time which this dress allowed. I loved the open shoulder look and if I had more time to get ready before our date night I would have done a really cute hairstyle up so you can really see the open shoulders and make that feature pop. By the way, I am not a big stockings girl but if it is cold and I have to wear them I ONLY wear the ones I linked to. I love them, they make the legs look amazing and are so soft. Hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday.
