I know I need unique New York






Outfit Details:
lace top - thrifted
skirt - thrifted
petticoat underneath - Beacon's Closet
belt - thrifted
socks - Marshalls
Dany platforms - courtesy of Jessica Simpson Collection

Roxy and Tessa took all of my photos while I was home, since I managed to break my tripod. Whenever Roxy didn't have my camera, she had her dad's. She took her job as a photographer/director very seriously. If she wasn't taking pictures, the camera was in its holder, hanging from the tree like an ornament. She told Tessa and me how to pose for all of our photos. As you can see, she has the posing part down.

Looking back at these pictures from Florida makes me want to smack Winter right in its face. Bare legs in December and January?! It used to be such a normal thing to me. But then again, so were backyards, walk-in closets and dishwashers. Now they all seem like exotic privileges from faraway lands. All kidding aside, the lack of such luxuries aren't enough to keep me from loving Brooklyn, though it would be better if a certain Tessa Marie would agree to apply for college in New York and come live with us. I'm just throwing that out there!

  8. I've always wanted to live somewhere warm in the winter like that ...but I feel like in the summer I would be miserable! And I can't stand heat to begin with. Anyhoo, I love those shades of pink. They're hard to find in any clothes nowadays. Very sweet outfit :)

  9. You look lovely as does Roxy and Tessa! That Roxy is such a doll! And I'd also like to smack winter in its face. I grew up with this whole snowy and cold thing during the winter and I'm still not used to it.

  20. I'm in Florida right now and returning to New York State (ROCHESTER of all places) in a few days. So I understand how you feel about wanting to smack winter in the face.

    That thrifted lace top is awesome! You always find the best things.

  23. I love your outfits and your photos, obviously, but I also love sweet stories your strong familial bonds. My little sister moved in with my husband and me during her second year of college, and we became closer in that one year than all (her) 20 years before it.

    Also, this color palette is gorgeous on you.

  31. The lace top is gorgeous. It is really sweet how close you are to your family.

    I live in London and miss lovely warm Australia where I am from, but I love my city so just have to put up with the cold. I have decided the only other city I could ever live in is New York (or possibly Edinburgh or Tokyo or Paris. Hmmm.)

  37. Love the poses, she really knows what she's doing! I think it's crazy how much you can have when you don't live in NYC of course, then you don't have NYC which isn't really a fair trade...

  40. I must be subconciously influenced by your style!
    I JUST sent through an order to Forever21, this top

    http://www.forever21.co.jp/Forever21/ProductView.aspx?Category=f21_top&ProductId=2000005228

    when I came to check up on your blog and saw your lovely (very similar!) lace top - I love the texture :)

  41. The combination of this light pink lace shirt and the skirt is utterly beautiful. I can totally understand what you mean about missing running around without tights. At the beginning of summer I'm always excited for my first day with bare legs, but time after time I start missing the variety tights bring in your closet, 'cause a dress is just a dress, but a dress with a certain pair of tights might be the perfect outfit.
    Love, Jojo

  56. Wow this is such a vintage look, i love it! I've been looking for a lace tee like that and i think it looks really good with the skirt. I also like how you paired it with the belt to give less of a soft vibe and also to create a waistline. Cute blog! I'm adding you to my blog list, if that's ok! :)

  57. Fern: Cute top! I like that color a lot...I might have to check it out at the store.
    Michelle: I think she got it at Plato's Closet, which is a second hand store with gently used, modern clothes. We're a family of bargain hunters:)
