Hello everyone! Happy Easter! Easter Sunday is one of the most fashionable dates out of the year because women all over the country are dawning their favourite spring church outfits. Finding the right thing to wear can be quite daunting and for me, it can be especially tricky!  View Full Post

Thankfully, it’s still pretty warm here in NYC! I decided to whip out one of the last summer dresses that hadn’t gone out yet. I absolutely love wearing cute little dresses like these. They are easy to wear and you can wear them to just about anything. 

Somedays you just want to feel girly!

This was by far my favourite outfit I wore while in Paris. I wore this the night Brendan proposed to me, we tried to go to a fancy high rise for dinner but they didn’t accept reservations and we were starving. We ended up going to a small diner that served Italian food and we were extremely over dressed.

It was so fun to get to wear this giant skirt while out in Paris. I was asked by lots of French where it came from. My good friend Holly made this specifically for my trip to Paris! You can order one from her here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/247455592/flirty-tulle-skirt-customize-your-color

Although we didn’t go to a super fancy dinner like most couples do when they get engaged, I love that we went to a diner in great clothes because it was so much more relaxed and I still felt like a million bucks.

I discovered this past weekend that New Yorkers like brunch. A lot. So much so, that many people that live in New York City take the time to prep where they are going to go, make reservations and go as far as to plan every food they order. Growing up, brunch was more reserved for Easter and Christmas. As I got older and hit the legal age to order alcohol, brunch became a way to have champagne in the afternoon. Here in New York, brunch seems to be a normal part of weekend life, as opposed to just be reserved for very special occasions. 

I knew that I would be going to mass after said brunch but I wanted to keep my outfit from looking overly conservative, I wore my vintage Dior suit jacket over a crop top. This way I could have the best of both worlds, I simply just buttoned the blazer up to go to church!

Here’s a picture of the cathedral where I attend mass. St. Patricks on 5th ave.

I’m finally starting to get around the city easier. Today I roamed around the wholesale jewelry markets and ended up buying wholesale sterling silver jewelry. I learned some interesting things.

1. You can barter at some costume jewlery stores

2. If you want you can buy in bulk and use a discount

3. The cheapest place in the city don’t take card, they only take cash!

My favorite thing today (because I can name a ton) about NYC is how diverse the shopping is. If you can think it, it’s available for purchase somewhere here.

Ferragamo shoes for today. Matchy-matchy can be fun.

These earrings I scored at Marshall’s for $14! They can be worn two ways, the underside of the earring can be removed and you can wear just the studs. Two pair in one!

Outfit Details:

Shirt: Helmut Lang

Pants: Vintage 70?s

Shoes: Vintage Ferragamo

Scarf: Vintage 60?s

Earrings: Bella & Jack (found at Marshall’s for $14!!

Purse: Chanel Grand Shopping Tote
