wednesday wants - skirts

Spring has officially sprung here in New York!

While I've already listed some great dresses I have my eye on in a past Wednesday Wants, this week I'm going to celebrate another item that I'm all ready to sport with bare legs.


This skirt combines a lot of things I'm loving this season: floral print, lace, and a perfect shade of green for spring.

In other words, sign me up!

I would love to add a neutral maxi skirt to my collection, and when it comes to the basics, Target is always on the mark.

With polka dots making a huge impact this spring, and yellow being the perfect bright addition to any spring wardrobe, I may need to get my hands on this one from Anthropologie!

 As I've mentioned before, stripes are very trendy in a big way right now. This pencil skirt is stylish, practical, and on top of that, completely affordable.

I always adore every piece in Lauren Conrad's Kohl's collection, and this skirt is no exception. I love the intense detail in the beading, the great price, and the fun romantic color that is just perfect for spring!

Are you excited to show off some fun skirts for spring?

And which ones are on YOUR want list?

nyc weekend adventures

Well, this weekend was another one for the books!

Starting from the beginning, Friday evening was much more relaxed than a normal Friday night.

Bryan and I stayed in and caught up on our shows from earlier in the week and just hung out. By the way, is anyone else loving New Girl this season?!

Saturday turned out to be a wonderful day in the city!

We were invited to a birthday dinner in the West Village and decided to use the occasion as an excuse to have a full-scale city adventure.

Bryan, our friend Sam and I headed to the Museum of Natural History. And while a lot of the exhibits there could definitely use some updating, it's a staple of living in the New York area that always proves to be a great time. The three of us just ran around and had a fantastic time.

It was like we were children again and I loved every second.

After that, we made a trip down to Levain Bakery on the Upper West Side. If you've never been there, you owe it to yourself to check it out. These cookies are the size of muffins and are absolutely incredible. I personally recommend the oatmeal raisin!

We later went down to Chelsea Market just to kill some time before dinner. We ended up wandering around Anthropolgie and spent a lot of time becoming sad about overpriced dresses and just being silly.

We finally met up at the restaurant of choice, Benny's Burritos and after some hassle over the seating arrangements (sitting a party of 10 in a tiny NYC eatery is a headache in and of itself), we finally got settled and ordered margaritas and burritos all around.

If you head there, and you're feeling adventurous, try one of the Bulldog drinks! It's a margarita with a shot of something extra, mine had white sangria, and a Coronita shoved in.

My waitress was even kind enough to add some guava flavoring to mine - which was awesome!

After dinner we ran around to a couple of the area bars, Down the Hatch and Slaughtered Lamb in particular.

Both were pretty typical bars of the West Village, but very enjoyable!

All in all, it was a fun night!

Sunday was a family day, as we were celebrating my grandfather's 75th birthday!

We'll all be going out for the occasion in June when my sister comes home from college, but for now we just had a home-cooked family dinner.

I love every opportunity to spend some time with my family - especially if it includes watching the Mets pick up a win in the final moments of a game!

I hope everyone had as great of a weekend as I did.

And I also hope that you all enjoy the rest of your week!

wednesday wants - dresses

In honor of the first day of spring, I want to celebrate an item that

I am so excited to bring back "sans tights" - dresses!

Of course it goes without saying that a dress is such a versatile item to have in your closet.

It can be worn with a pair of Toms and a denim jacket for a casual look.

Or maybe a blazer and heels for a work-appropriate look.

Or even with a sweater, tights, and boots to bring a summer look into one for winter.

So without further ado, these are five dresses that I really want at the moment:

Has anyone else been hypnotized by those Old Navy commercials for their new eyelet dresses?

Well I have.

They are just so cute AND only $25 each!

 And with Easter just around the corner, I think that it's appropriate to mention that I think that the yellow one needs to hop into my closet as soon as possible.

{Urban Outfitters}
I love everything about this dress. From the bold pattern to the exposed back, there is simply nothing that I think looks better.

I could easily see transitioning this piece from day to night once the weather gets warmer!


And speaking of the change in seasons, this dress might be the perfect combination of fun and color that I need to jump start me into warmer days.

I love the shade of green in this dress, and you can never argue with H&M's low prices.

Just like i mentioned yesterday, big and bold stripes are HOT right now! And on top of that, these colors would brighten any day!

And while I'm always looking to add more dresses to my closet, the real question is what dresses are YOU currently craving this Wednesday?
