In A New York Minute

You would never know that yesterday in NYC we got a few inches of snow. Today it was in the mid-50's and the sun was shining on anything that would sit still. It was the perfect day for a walk in Central Park. What I just love about the park is that even though it was beyond full you can always find a few spots where you feel like you have the entire park to yourself.

Earlier today I stopped by Urban Outfitters to pick up these adorable oxfords that I have had my eye on for some time. I didn't buy them in previous visits because I wasn't sure I'd wear them or not...but I couldn't stop thinking about them. So buy them I did!!!

I adore this polka-dot dress that I got a few months back thanks to winning a contest on the blog We Wear Things. It combined three of my favorite things: black & white, a peplum, and polka-dots. In my eyes these three things are a winning combination!

One thing I never really do is experiment with my hair. I usually curl it every day...but that's about it. Today I was feeling creative and thought I should jazz it up a little. So I opted to make myself a braided headband hairstyle. What do you think? I kind of like it!

dress- Shabby Apple
coat- Brooklyn Industries
tights- ?

Hopefully you are all enjoying some lovely weather where you live too. I think tomorrow I'll be doing more of the same...long walks, picture taking, and hanging out with my husband and pup. Hey, I gotta enjoy this amazing weather while it lasts!
