How in the world has April come & already practically over? It's beginning to look like Spring around here! Needless to say, I think myself & the rest of NYC could not be more thrilled! April has been busy & I've had some really great weekends . . .
01. brunch with friends at Supper
02. poor choice in sending selfies little brother - I plan to keep for blackmail haha
03. a visit to FIT for the YSL & Halston exhibit
04. perks of an evening boat ride
05. taking advantage of chilly spring nights with a bbq & bonfire with friends

the intrepid

 This weekend Bryan & I went to The Intrepid Sea, Air, & Space Museum. We went in a submarine growler where I can't imagine 88 men in such tight quarters, walked on the flight deck with the coolest aircrafts, explored the space shuttle pavilion, & toured every nook and cranny of the carrier. If you're ever in the city, I would definitely add this museum to your itinerary {even if the weather decides to turn into a wintry snow storm}.

a bust

This was my walk home from work early afternoon on Monday . . .
After a much talked about blizzard that was suppose to blanket Manhattan with up to two feet of snow that evening, I was pleasantly surprised when I walked out to this Tuesday morning . . .
I've never been more grateful.
Okay, that might be a tad dramatic. But seriously, thank you Juno for skipping over the city & high five to the snow plows.
I'm officially over this winter & beginning the countdown to warm weather. Although I'll be sad to trade in my cozy plaids & blanket scarves for pretty pastels, I'm ready to hang up my puffer jacket for awhile. I've started to compile a list of my spring must-haves.
These are on the top of my list . . .
dreaming of spring
lace tops / boyfriend jeans / pink lipstick / leather-strap watch / pop-of-color bag
pretty flats / tortoise sunnies / statement necklace / neutral polish / a spring-y scent
