So, apparently I lucked out moving from California to New York amidst the wussiest winter ever. It already feels like spring! And these delightful temps couldn’t have come at a better time, given my eagerness to sport this floral denim skirt.

Also, I’ve said it once, and I will say it again — fanny packs should really become a thing. I mean what’s not to love? Yeah, this Coach Classic shoulder bag is adorable when worn how it was intended and all, but I still prefer my makeshift, hands-free version. Plus, this way it doubles as a belt…hello, two birds with one stone!

Blake and I are still making progress daily putting together our new place. It already feels really homey and I am excited to share the finished product soon(ish). TGI-almost the weekend!

    I saw the 7 for all mankind as a pair of printed jeans and it was too much for me. But as a skirt is gorgeous. Love it. Hope you and Blake (and Lola of course) are loving NY!

    i can’t believe that skirt is denim! it looks very similar to a cotton zara version everyone is porting. i am fairly anti denim skirt at the moment but this could sway me!
    in dramatic fashion

    I’m totally with you on that! It is pretty thin/stretchy denim, so it was comfortable and easy to wear. Always a plus! :)
