Butterfly in the Sky

I'm absolutely in love with this dress from Brooklyn Industries. Not only is it absolutely adorable, but my husband picked it up for me as part of my Valentine's Day gift. I could care less about jewelry...he knows the way to my heart (besides his cooking) is by expanding my wardrobe.

Not only is this dress covered with an adorable butterfly/insect print, but I love that I can wear it in the spring or summer and to work or casually when at home.

I could have easily worn a nude, brown, or navy shoe with this dress...but that would just be so boring! Why would I do that when I could totally jazz it up a little with some hot pink booties!?!?! Pulling another color from the dress and pairing it with my footwear just elevates the look.

The beautiful blue sky, pretty flowers at every bodega I pass, and almost 60 degree temps make me think that we have gotten (almost) through winter without much snow. Hooray! All this paired with some bright colors (can you believe I'm not in black?!), have made me feel super cheery and excited for my three day weekend.

My day kicked off with a lovely walk around my neighborhood, a stop at a local bakery for an amazing sweet treat for breakfast (I had a passion fruit donut...need I say more?!?!), and some fun photos while I soaked in the sun.

So last weekend I picked up this adorable coat at a local boutique in Williamsburg. I walked into the store for a candle and saw this beauty on the sale rack. The last one. Marked half off! When I went to the register the girl working there told me how much she loved this coat and was hoping it would hang around until her boss would finally gift it to her. I left there apologizing...but, sorry not sorry! I absolutely love it!

And then there are these sparkle sneakers! Another great find that I got for half off at a local shop in my hood. Okay, I'm not going to lie, I wish they had my size...these are 1/2 a size smaller than I normally wear. But they were too cute to pass up!

I bet you all didn't think I would stick to my new year's resolution of trying to wear some brighter and bolder colors. As you can see, I'm really trying to stick to it!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

NYFW- Gemy Maalouf

Gemy Maalouf's presentation at the Bowery Hotel last night was was an elegant affair that was perfectly choreographed. Full of sequins, tulle, and lace...this collection had something for everyone.The dresses were so beautiful, it made Gail and I say how much we wished we had an elegant occasion to wear them to. Sigh...maybe one day.

I took these photos with my phone last night. They are just a few of my favorite looks from her collection. Isn't that dress in the bottom right image with the bow straps beautiful? My favorite look of the night!
