Finally Spring in New York
The moment we get the slightest warm weather in New York we all run to the great outdoors–whether it be a park, someone’s rooftop or patio, or even to just aimlessly walk around the city. New Yorkers know to take advantage of warm-weather days being that summer doesn’t last as long as we’d like.
Perhaps it’s because we’re having too much fun that it just always seems to fly by? Whatever it is, after months of cold, snowy, windy, and rainy days, we all seek the warmth of the sun (this is why I’ve learned it’s necessary to escape and book trips to warmer climates in the middle of January or February).
Obviously, my first thought on this glorious-weather day was, “I’m going to shoot!” And that’s how this post came about. I have yet to pull my spring/summer clothes from under my bed (I store it in suitcases during the winter months) but luckily I had this pink knit skirt I’d recently purchased at Beacon’s Closet and this mesh top I kept with my winter clothes because I figured I could still wear it indoors.

I really like how soft it is and how it gives me a bit of a lengthening effect thanks to the vertical lines that run down–because at 5’3 I could definitely use it. I wanted to add a bit of contrast and black espadrilles seemed like the right fit. I don’t think I’ve ever owned a pair besides these, which by the way, I wore for the first time on that day. I didn’t think I’d be a fan but turns out I liked them a little more than expected.
Sometimes you have to bend a little and give new things or ideas a chance. You have to actually try them before completely discarding the thought of trying them. And who knows? The results might actually surprise you.
