Waterfront Stroll




One of the greatest benefits that has come to me personally from blogging is the friendships I've made over the past 2 years (the closest being Jenn & Alyson).  We text each other throughout the week, vent about life & are genuinely excited for one another when a great opportunity presents itself.  Another bonus is that we help each other shop! Alyson was recently on a trip to NYC and instagrammed a picture of this floral tee she found on the clearance rack at Madewell.  I quickly texted her to ask if there was another one in my size & she was sweet enough to scoop it up for me.  Since she bought one for herself too, we decided to link up today and show how we both styled this fun floral-printed shirt for spring - check out her post here.







What I'm wearing:
Madewell shirt (here), LOFT skirt (similar herehere or here), c/o Sheinside trench (here), Mossimo heels (similar), Merona bag (here or similar here), Stella & Dot ring (here), c/o InPink bracelet (here), Simply Vera Vera Wang aviators (similar), Nails: Essie Tart Deco

Awww...that was sweet of Alyson!!! And thank you for the kind words...I feel the same way about you! You look BEAUTIFUL btw. And tell that husband of yours (AKA Rodger) that I am going to need to know exactly what settings (f stop/ISO) he uses for your pics...if you can't tell by my recent posts, I am OBSESSED with figuring out how to use my new lens! ARGGGHHHH!

XOXO, Jenn
