"It's a Hard Parade, Just Be Courageous..."

I am feeling in such a spring-y mood lately. Just walking around the city this evening with 60-degree weather, seeing everyone alive and enjoying the sun after work made me so happy. I love nothing more than weather around 65 Fahrenheit, wearing a light jacket and feeling a soft breeze. While winter is fun for the holiday cheer and other winter activities around New York, nothing compares to everything there is to do when it's nice out. My favorite spring and summer activities in New York include Smorgasburg (a delectable food festival in Brooklyn), rooftop bars including two of my favorites, The Wythe Hotel and The Standard Hotel, picnics in the park (Central Park or a small greenspace near home), and walks along the East or West Side Paths. This year I hope to make it to the free outdoor movie screenings in Brooklyn Bridge Park in Dumbo with a view of the city, visits to the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the Bronx Zoo, as well as a host of free concerts, many of them outdoors! 

Spring and summer are also a time to show off your cutest blouses, such as this one from LC by Lauren Conrad! The peter pan collar and bow print was too cute to pass up. I wore it with a bow bracelet and a bow belt since I'm never one for playing a theme subtly. I paired it with a black and white herringbone pencil skirt that I feel like I've had forever (because it matches everything!) with gray tights and my favorite black bow flats. What does your Spring wardrobe consist of?

Outfit Highlights: LC by Lauren Conrad blouse from Kohl's, bow belt from Forever21, bow bracelet from Charming Charlie, and flats by Katie and Kelly from DSW. 

Style Tip: Wear what's displayed in your outfit's print, whether it's bows in this case or flowers (flowers in your hair!) or an animal (an animal ring, perhaps). 

Song of the Day: "Backyards" by Broken Social Scene since you should be creative and discover your own backyard this Spring whether or not you live in a city!
