After a lazy Sunday morning, Blake and I decided to hit the town for an afternoon cocktail (okay, two). Been itching to wear this dress for weeks, and for lack of a better occasion, I figured I’d go ahead and get a little fancy. I really dig the pleats on crack thing it’s got going on, and how good is the lime/silver color combo?! With wedding season upon us, I’m about to put this little number to good use.

As mentioned here, I recently had the pleasure of styling a couple of pieces from the Matiko spring collection. I found these neon-accented sandals, sans heel (say what?!), to be ever so slightly outside of my comfort zone, and sort of perfect.

Paired ‘em up with another mermaid-esque ensemble, in celebration of our sometimes fickle, but mostly lovely, NYC spring, and set off on my way. What can I say? I am all about the color these days.

A few weeks back I teamed up with Matiko to style a pair of shoes from their Spring collection. It likely comes as no surprise that I’m all about super tall platforms (I mean, my boyfriend is 6′ 5″), so these were a natural choice. Paired ‘em up with my most easy to wear baby doll dress, and called it a day!

Have you guys checked out Threadflip yet?? It is an awesome new social marketplace for buying, selling, and discovering new, unique, and pre-loved fashion. You can check out my picks HERE!

This skirt makes me feel like some kind of mermaid princess. While it’s far from my go-to when it comes to clothing, I have never outgrown my childhood love for all things hot pink. For this reason, when I find a piece that’s this loud, but still sort of…soft, in a way, I’m all for it. Borderline Barbie, but without being obnoxious. At least I like to think so…

Paired up and toned down with some navy pieces, which will likely replace a lot of the black in my wardrobe this season. Especially now that high temps are actually something to consider (YAY)! San Fran, I love you, but I will never miss those B.S. summers.

Hope you guys had a nice weekend! x

UPDATE: Collective Habit is now offering OTR readers 15% off anything on their site (incl. this skirt!). Just enter code “ONTHERACKS15″ at checkout. Expires April 24th.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of walking in the Intel Inside Generation Style Fashion Show at the Metropolitan Pavilion. While I realize I’m far from a runway model, it was definitely a kick to get all dressed up, have my hair and makeup done, and strut my stuff on the catwalk along with a handful of my blogger buds!

Loved the way that Arrojo did my hair — and I actually had it colored and cut by them last week (Matthew and Mary are awesome if you’re looking for a new ‘do!). The first look I wore was by Norma Kamali, and the second, Orla Kiely.

Thanks so much to the amazing people at IFB for including me in this super fun event!

We finally made it to the Brooklyn Flea over the weekend! Sad to say I came home empty handed (minus a set of stud earrings and a full belly), but regardless, it was a good time. And we were able to catch up with some friends in Park Slope after the fact for a little beer and banter — my favorite kind of Saturday.

Paired these floral pants and a cutoff tee with my trusty cage sandals – which have been in hibernation for some time – for a comfortable, casual look. It is a good feeling to know legit spring is on its way in – I can feel it!
