What I Wore: Sunday Brunch



Fur Stole: Vintage, Top: Courtesy of Style369, Skirt: Warehouse via ASOS, Necklace: Topshop, Sunglasses: Miu Miu, Bag: Coach Classic Willis

Yesterday was my last full day of pretend living (or, "Eloising") in the Meatpacking District, so I took advantage of the proximity (and burst of sunshine in a week of mostly grey skies) to wander through the West Village most of the afternoon, window shopping and enjoying an absolutely yummy brunch at Little Owl. Though this skirt is positively "spring" in its personality and tone, I've been craving an escape from the cold, so it's become a fun transitional piece for me between the seasons. This outfit is definitely out of the norm for me, but I love how all the colors play into each other, and adore the whimsy of the bug collar necklace paired with the floral print! (I apologize for the crazy amount of creases on the skirt, but seeing as I've essentially --and literally-- been living out of a suitcase for the last two weeks, hopefully you'll forgive me.)

What spring pieces have you started incorporating into your wardrobe?? I must say, this season is going to be big on color for me.

  19. I don't know what I love more, your cute yellow skirt/denim shirt/glitter sunglasses/bug necklace combo, or the fact you've been living in a hotel like Eloise!! But whichever it is, I love this post!

  39. Lovers liked its realism, when RDR first arrived. You do some tracking with your mates or by
    yourself and could just go up towards the arctic
    foothills. Gameplay in this game is okay,
    however not fantastic.
