Spring Stripes

It was raining most of last week, but this weekend the sun came out in full force and the temperature was a blissful 50 degrees.

First we all met up for drinks, then went dancing. The music was pretty great and it felt so good to cut loose and be silly on the dance floor. On Sunday my roommate and I decided to take advantage of the nice weather and went out to run some errands.

We picked up some new clothes for him at Banana Republic, some tasty eats from my fave, Bedford Cheese Shop, and best of all, fresh flowers from a local vendor. I’m looking at these tulips sitting in my windowsill right now as I type this and I’m feeling pretty content. Sorry to get all gushy on you guys, but recently I’d been feeling more down than up, so it’s nice to be experiencing these little moments of happiness.

Since the temperatures were relatively warm, I was so ready to bare my legs in my quilted miniskirt from Target. I felt like sporting some color, so I wore my bright coral striped top from Aeropostale. I also put on my comfy, new sneakers. It’s hard to tell in the picture, but there are little silver threads running through the fabric. Ahhh, weekend, thanks for being so good to me. Please come back soon.

    • Thanks so much Jenmarie! :)

  • Sounds like it was a lovely and fun weekend! You look amazing! I love that skirt and the pop of color with that shirt, very nice :)

    • Thank you Sara! Me too, loving this current weather.

  • Sounds like a fun weekend! Love the cheerful color of your top and mani.

    • Thank you Shenneth! I almost always like to have a bright color on my nails :)

  • It was definitely a great weekend! I took full advantage of the sun and weather and stayed outdoors as well! This outfit makes me miss the weekend, already! I always walk past the Bedford Cheese shop, but never go in! What’s your favorite? I’ll be sure to stop by there next time :)

    • Funny story- I don’t actually eat cheese, so I go to Bedford Cheese Shop for the other stuff! My roommate constantly makes fun of me when I say that I love this place- he says it’s ironic since I don’t eat cheese! They have tons of other items though- meat, jam, spices, and other organic and specialty products. Their Manhattan location is pretty close to my apartment and I usually pick up a fresh baguette and some cured meats.

  • sounds like you had a fantastic weekend! the weather here was wonderful too, but sadly it’s back to cold & rainy today. but i know that the more it rains the greener everything will be, so there’s always a bit of a silver lining :) love your look by the way, you have the most beautiful smile!

    • Thank you so much Molly, you’re so sweet :) It was a bit chilly and rainy here too for the past couple of days, but the sun is back out this morning. Yippee!

    What a cute outfit! I’m also looking forward to better weather since it keeps reverting to freezing, cold weather down here in DC :/

    • Thank you Mai! Hope it warms up soon in DC!

  • ahhh I love this outfit! You look so cute and ready for spring. I wish I’d gotten that skirt when I had the chance!

    Chic on the Cheap

    • Thanks so much Lydia! :)

  • I haven’t stepped foot in an Aero since high school, but back then, everything was bejeweled and branded. I’m glad to see that they’ve started putting out more wearable basics, and I just might have to pay them a return visit!



    • Some of their stuff is too tween for me, but I have found some surprisingly good items there! Thanks for coming by Brittney :)
