Finally! The moment I have been waiting for for six months. No more big coats, gloves, scarves, tights, boots, ear muffs, beanies, none of that! Finally, SPRING! Glorious, beautiful, allergy-filled spring! I wanted to do something special for the first official look of the season, so I wore this beautiful dress, courtesy of Lulu’s, which had been hanging in my closet since Fashion Week, tags on and everything, and went to Central Park on a Wednesday afternoon because, why not?

When I first got back from Coachella I missed California a lot. Now that the weather is nice here I’m like: “Cali-whaaat?” I doubt I could have worn a gown on the beach during the middle of the week with as much ease as I did here in New York. All I got where perhaps a couple of sideways glances and one little girl on a stroller who pointed at me and said: “ballerina!” Aaawwww. I complimented this beautiful gown with this flower headband I made myself before going to the West Coast. It’s amazing the kind of things you can do with a glue gun and a little bit of time. I didn’t end up wearing it at Coachella (I wore this red and yellow one instead) but I’m glad I got to wear it here. I did a little dance to welcome Spring, and even got to play a bit of frisbee with some cute guys. My photographer didn’t think they were so cute, obviously, otherwise he would have shot them.

What do you think of this Spring look?

    I remember that event invite ;) You look beautiful! I love the photos in the park. That dress is my favorite color, I might have to go shopping with that code, thank you!
