Cold Shoulder

Zara Off the Shoulder Top | Michael Kors Bag

It's that season ALL New Yorkers have been waiting somewhat patiently for (because Winter didn't seem to get the memo that it wasn't invited to the party), 'off the shoulder season' has commenced! (Insert dancing emoji here- several of them.)

Over the past year, my closet has accumulated quite the collection of off the shoulder tops and dresses. I tend to live in them during the hot months, and they're usually the first piece I gravitate towards if the temps are high. Being from Texas, it can get more than just a little hot so I was always prepared. I've been told that New York summers are quite the scorcher as well, so I'm equally getting ready for my first one in the city. 

Here's to many more off the shoulder looks on LM!
I'm sensing that there will be a large amount of them in my future.

Central Park in the Spring

Free People Printed Tunic | Steve Madden Shoes 

There's nothing quite like New York in the Spring. Particularly, Central Park. I used to dream of what it might feel like to spend Spring in the city. Countless movies, and books painted a picture in my mind of what New York City might look and feel like during this season. I constantly heard so many things about Spring being one of the most magical and romantic times in NYC (neck and neck with Fall), and was so eager to experience it all for myself. 

Being able to spend my very first Spring in the city as a New Yorker has been so surreal and incredible all at the same time. So naturally, I did what I felt would be most fitting in order to celebrate one of my favorite seasons (and my very first one in Manhattan)... threw on a flowy floral dress, grabbed my camera, and headed straight to the park!

Bodega Blooms

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said - "Flowers are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty out-values all the utilities of the world." I couldn't agree more Ralph. Simply couldn't agree more! I like to think that maybe this is why I seem to be so addicted to them. (Okay, okay, slightly OBSESSED with them would be more accurate.) I've had so many friends mention to me that based on my Instagram photos, 'It seems as though you really like flowers girl.' Haha! Yes friends, yes I definitely do. 

Moving to New York has been this flower girl's dream come true. Being able to walk around every corner, and see a new beautiful bodega is a feast for my eyes! My weekends as of late have consisted of Sunday flower runs to prep for the week ahead, and my local bodega  on the Upper East Side already knows my name. I feel as if they even know my usual 'flower order'! White roses to be exact.

Here's to many more Sundays spent shopping for blooms in the city. ~
