I have a love-hate relationship with animal prints. Sometimes I love them, but other times I think they are basically the worst. This usually makes for fun “blog self-reflection days” which happen when I look back on my blog to see what I can get away with re-wearing. Sometimes, if an animal print outfit catches me on the wrong day, I will be all like, “ewww what is that outfit?! I look like a polyester cat” (because animal print stuff is almost always made from polyester). Then I am all like, I am never wearing that top/skirt/shoes/belt/bracelet/etc. again!
But by the time I make it to my closet to dispose of the offending item, I like animal print again. Thus the cycle repeats.
Good story, right?

Guess what guys? I got me another full skirted frock because, as I always say, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Amiright?!

You guys, Mother’s Day is this Sunday (5/12)! What have you gotten your mom? Nothing? Rude.
Well, BloomNation sent me the flowers above last week and basically made my life. BloomNation has partnerships with some of the top florists in the country to get you fresh flowers fast.
I think my favorite part about BloomNation is that you can see the actual arrangements the florist designed as opposed to seeing stock images and having NO IDEA what you’re actually sending someone. What you see in the photo is what gets delivered. Yay!
Okay, now get to ordering. I have a special coupon code for you and everything! Get 20% off your Mother’s Day flowers using the code: Bloom20.
Dear Critter Sweaters,
Thank you. You have carried me through Fall and Winter beautifully (and fashionably). But the weather is getting warmer and now I must retire you for the season. But don’t fret, I will hang you on cedar hangers and bring you back out again in November.
Okay, see you soon, critter sweater friends!
In NYC, even the art wears hipster glasses.
at the present I am…
♥ wearing: My trusty Ralph Lauren button down, skinnies and nude flats
♥ listening: Kacey Musgraves’ album — Same Trailer, Different Park
♥ reading: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
♥ watching: Mad Men — isn’t everyone?
♥ doing: My nails. I am trying to get better at painting my own nails. I think I am making progress, if I do say so myself.
♥ loving: All the blooming trees in the city. Gorgeous.
♥ hating: Leggings as pants. But you already knew that.
♥ wishing: For a puppy!
♥ wanting: A whole piece bathing suit. I think I might get this midkini first, though. Baby steps
What about you, lovelies?
Chevrons make everything better!

I just want to start by saying that no camera can truly do this skirt justice. It is like a bright, crazy, neon color explosion. It is a quintessential Lilly Pulitzer (RIP) piece and I am so excited to own it and wear it all this Summer/Spring.
May I also say that this was my first “stockings-free” day on the blog? Though, I think it might have been a bit premature. It actually wasn’t warm enough to go sans tights and Lilly Pulitzer is an anomaly in Harlem so I was basically freezing and everyone was staring at my crazy skirt. Despite all this, I think my legs were excited about seeing the light of day, even if they did feel like popsicles by the time I got home.
Yes, I’m wearing chambray again. Sorry I’m not sorry.
