Oh my, an outfit post! These have become rather rare around here, but this past weekend I was able to sucker a friend into snapping a few quick pictures of me.

It was another freakin’ gorgeous weekend. Seriously, I live for days like these. Saturday was Independent Bookstore Day, which is definitely my kind of holiday. You guys know that I love books, so I was happy to take a day to support some local bookstores. I roped a friend into going with me and together we hit up four bookstores in Manhattan. I got some really great books at really great prices. If you’d like to hear more about that, I should have some related videos up on my youtube channel soon!

Give a warm welcome to my trusty pink jacket- it’s back for spring. I bought that thing over four years ago for about 30 bucks. Who knew it would become such a staple in my wardrobe? I also decided to bring out my white jeans (although, it was a little warmer than I expected on Saturday, so I was a bit hot). Since I knew I’d be doing a lot of walking that day, I went with my comfy black sneakers. On top I’m wearing this lovely new tank from Loft. I picked it up a couple weekends ago and I’ve already worn it twice. I love that it’s long and flowy and the brushed polka-dot pattern is very cute. I did quite a bit of shopping on Saturday (sorry bank account) and I ended up buying this top in black too.

Over the weekend, Uber was running this promotion where’d they come and pick up your clothes and donate them to Goodwill for you. By the time I got home from my day out, I thought I would be too late, but I decided to try requesting an Uber anyway. I’ve never really used Uber before, so I didn’t realize that when I requested one, they’d come right away. That gave me about 5 minutes to toss some clothes into a bag and haul it downstairs to give to the driver. Since I was in such a rush, I’m sure I missed some stuff, but it still felt good to do a little bit of closet cleaning. I guess I had to make room for the new clothes I bought anyway!

    That’s such a cute jacket – so perfect for spring! I did a little shopping this weekend soon and my bank account definitely hates me.

    • Thanks Courtney! Your bank account may hate you, but your closet loves you ;)

  • These photos are absolutely lovely! And your outfit is perfect, i really like that tank and paired with those jeans and jacket looks just right for spring.

  • This weekend was absolutely gorgeous! I just wish my allergies wouldn’t go crazy every time I’m outside. That pink jacket is totally perfect for the weather now.

    • We’ve been having pretty nice weather recently, but it is a bummer that with warmer temperatures comes allergy season! This morning I walked right into a leaf blower’s cloud and my sinuses were not pleased :/

  • So fun!! Gorgeous pictures!!! I was obsessed with this past weekend as well ;) and also did way too much shopping :D

    • Thank you Natalie! I hope you’ve had a good start to the week :)

  • These pink trees are everywhere and it makes me so happy! They’re so pretty! Love that light pink jacket too! I totally forgot about Bookstore Day and wish I’d taken advantage!

    • Thank you very much Carla! :)

  • The weekend was truly glorious, and I love that you took your photos with the cherry blossoms – my favorite! Interesting idea to have Uber come pick up your donations, but I suppose in the city it can’t be an easy task to lug bags and bags of clothes around!

    • That’s one of the things that stops me from cleaning out my closet more regularly. When I do, I like to donate the clothes and clear out that space right away. On the other hand, I’m too lazy to be carrying big bags of clothes several blocks!

  • Woah, that’s such a cool uber promotion. Go them for doing that! And I did the same for Indie Bookstore Day! I always buy a little summin summin even if it’s just to help them out. Love finding another blogger that’s a book lover :D

    Also you should TOTALLY got to new orleans- it’s my favorite city in the whole US. It’s just got so much character :)

    • I thought it was a really neat idea! I hope Uber does it again because I found it super convenient. I love that you did Indie Bookstore Day too! What did you buy? A visit to New Orleans is definitely on my list. I hope it happens soon!

    • Thank you Kat! I had to take advantage of this pretty tree when I spotted it :)

  • I’ve been meaning to get rid of some clothes so thanks for the reminder ;) The pink flowers in the background look so pretty! And complement your all white look so well :)

    • Glad I could remind you! Thank you Mili :)

  • Love when you buy something on a whim and it becomes a staple :)

    hehe your Uber experience. I did the Goodwill thing too. So nice to get rid of things!

    • Me too! Loved the Uber thing- it was so convenient. I hope they do it again soon!
