It’s one of my favorite times of the year: florals are in full bloom in the city.  There really is nothing else quite like it … bustling streets are lined with beautiful tulips and gorgeous blossoms hang overhead in every park.  Everything’s a bit brighter and everyone’s a little happier.  It’s no wonder that my style tends to follow suit.  This blue floral skirt is the latest addition to the arsenal and I have no doubt it’ll give the sidewalk planters a run for their money!

Skirt The Rules // New Balance 501 Sneakers

As much as I love a good heel, sky-high stilettos are not the most practical option for a city dweller like me.  I’m either biking to work or running down a subway platform to catch the train, so that “cab to curb” kind of lifestyle just isn’t going to work.  In reality, I’ll usually have a pair of flats on during my commute and then throw on my heels right before I get to my destination.  If you see a girl switching out her shoes on the corner of the street, that’s probably me…

Skirt The Rules // New Balance 501 Sneakers

Enter the perfect sneakers from DSW.  It’s a shoe style that I never thought I’d pair with something other than sweats and a tank top until recently.  Times have changed, my friend!  Athleisure is the idea of being sporty and comfortable, without sacrificing your style.  The first time I explained the term to a friend, he laughed at me, but it’s a thing!  Sneakers aren’t just confined to the gym or to the feet of middle-aged tourists.  They’re being worn with dresses and skirts, or in my case, with a refined coat and leather leggings.  Gone are the days where I have to stuff an extra pair of shoes in my already brimming tote bag and that’s a trend I can totally get behind.

Colorblock Dropwaist Dress

Skirt The Rules // Colorblock Dropwaist Dress

After spending the past week and a half in Phoenix, Tucson and Austin, it was a tough sell trying to get me on the airplane back to NYC.  For starters, the weather was gorgeous enough to break out my new colorblock dress and strappy heels.  And then we got to partake in all of the fun parts of wedding planning, like menu tasting and cake tasting — sooo many cakes.  Not a bad way to escape the subzero windchill, am I right?  I’m already planning my next trip back for a bridal shower in March, but until then … I’ll have to live vicariously through these warm weather photos.
