Sorority Formal aka Prom Part 2

I'll probably write an actual post on my sorority's formal later, but for now here are some pictures. And by pictures I mean here are the two I managed to remember to take.

Cherry Blossoms & Kimonos

Disclaimer: I don't think these are actually cherry blossoms but I feel like they're pretty similar so I'm just going to go with it!! #ArtisticLicense 

Despite the chilly past few days we've had, it is indeed springtime. And with springtime comes allergies, the weirdly distinctive scent of overripe (aka dying) flowers, and floral prints! (Very groundbreaking, I know).

Here is something new to try out this spring as the weather continues warming up: print kimonos.

City Slicker

It was gloriously sunny yesterday and I took the opportunity to unpack the rest of my spring/summer clothes from the oversized storage container stashed beneath my bed. My clothes can all breathe again! 
For some reason, it's been absolutely blowing my mind that winter has ended. It's like I can no longer comprehend the passage of time, like I cannot even try to understand how another year has come and gone. Is this what old age feels like??? Oh god, I'm only 19 and I swear sometimes it feels like I'm a divorced middle-aged housewife reminiscing about the past, drinking a glass of white wine and staring out the window and swirling a pinky inside the glass as soulful music plays in the background. Lord help me when I turn 20 in May if this is how I'm feeling now.
Anyway, here's a fun spring look perfect for the upcoming weeks of sunny days and easy living.

The Little Things

One of my favorite gelato places in the city is definitely Amorino's. It's real close to Washington Square Park, the official heart of the unofficial NYU campus that infiltrates the West Village. I recently stopped by with my good friend Gabby because well, boys suck and sometimes you need delicious and authentic gelato to recover from the struggle of being a single straight girl at NYU.

It was a lovely time, we joked about tourists, gossiped about people from back home (Gabby and I went to high school together) and of course, snapped some pics of our beautiful gelato. Amorino's is famous for their floral gelato arrangements, they even commission entire bouquets.

10/10 would always recommend!

A Night To Remember

Last night I went to the Mets Game because my sorority was having Family Weekend and our events chair scored us amazing seats. My family couldn't make it (even though they're just back in Jersey- I SEE U MOM AND DAD, I SEE U) but I still had an amazing time with my sisters and their family members.

My favorite part was the surprise fireworks show at the end of the game (the Mets won, btw, if you care about that kind of thing). I've always loved fireworks more than anything else and it made me unbelievably happy to sit inside that massive stadium while and watch what felt like an endless amount of fireworks fly into the sky and light up all around me.

Perfectly Pink

 As the days get warmer, my wardrobe gets brighter. And in the spring, pink is definitely a fun color to work with. It's pretty, it's happy, it's girly. Yesterday I put together a very light and simply look that's easy to wear as we finally leave winter behind.

Brunching: The Butcher's Daughter

Someone asked me the other day if I eat meals other than brunch, and the answer was and will always be a firm, resounding NOPE. Brunch is the only thing I ever want to eat and the only thing I will eat, aside from desserts. Why would I ever choose to do otherwise?

Today I had an amazing brunch at The Butcher's Daughter, a popular juice bar and cafe that serves brunch all day on weekends aka perfect for popping by at 3pm with friends (because nobody actually wakes up before 2 on Saturdays).

Light & Bright

It's been a dreary couple of weeks, so you can imagine my delight when I checked Instagram Thursday morning and saw a selfie captioned with "it's going to hit 64 today!" 64 degrees, 64 glorious degrees of sunshine and happiness. And it was indeed a beautiful day, one spent lounging in Washington Square Park with friends, feeling the sun on my face and watching New York come back to life after what has felt like the longest winter yet.

Although the weather has cooled down a bit since Thursday, it's still quite lovely out and I'm excited about no longer having to pull on a pair of tights or leggings with every outfit. My legs need to breathe!! So here's my first outfit post for spring, because it's time for a fresh start.
