Springtime is just about the only thing anyone in NYC can talk about right now. When your livelihood is dependent on a lot of walking (unless you’re willing to blow your entire budget on cabs) and your living space is limited to the size of a shoebox, the winter can drag on extra long.
I could go on and on about how I was beginning to question my sanity… but the fact is… it’s May and it’s gloriously beautiful out now. And just like that I– along with the rest of New York– have fallen back in love with the city.
There are flowers everywhere! The color alone is enough to brighten your mood, not to mention the 80 degrees we’ve been experiencing.
I had a jam-packed schedule on Saturday, so when Sunday rolled around, I relished the clear calendar. Garrett and I took Teddy to the neighborhood dog park (our favorite weekend activity) and then picked up some essentials for our Alaska trip.
This was the perfect park-and-errands outfit. These shorts
have been sitting in my closet for months and I was waiting for the first week of May (honestly!) knowing I’d match the tulips everywhere!! They’re technically poppies
, but I mean, close enough.
Shorts can sometimes feel too casual to me even if they are more practical than a skirt (you know, like, when I’m at the park playing with Teddy)… but this combination felt perfectly put together for me! I didn’t feel like I was bumming around on the weekend and felt confident to go straight from the park to Soho for some shopping.
