Since last Thursday was my birthday and my boyfriend John is the sweetest, he took me to lunch at The Meatball Shop on the LES of NYC. We had amazing vegetarian meatball sandwiches and homemade ice cream sandwiches for dessert. Yum! He followed it up with a trip to the beyond gorgeous Brooklyn Botanical Gardens where we shot some photos...

Usually on my birthday I wear a super-summery, somewhat fancy dress. But this year since it was so warm and since our plans involved a ton of walking- I decided to go with something very simple.

Outfit Details:

Dress- Banana Republic Factory
Necklace- Martin + Osa Sample Sale
Bag- Vintage
Sandals- Seychelles

I had to include one of the guy who made my day so special!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Update: Finally free!

I'M BACK! No really, I am, I promise! My silence the last 2.5 months or so have been due to the fact that I was completely overwhelmed while finishing up my last ever semester in school. I was taking 7 classes, an independent study, job hunting, and interning 20-30 hours each week! To say the least, it was complete madness!

BIG things have happened since my last post:

  • I graduated! (finally)
  • It's summer! (again, finally)
  • I landed my first real fashion design job! (I started on Monday)
  • I turned 24! (last Thursday)

Here is the ONLY cap and gown photo that I took on Graduation Day! (Yes, I know it isn't very flattering...)

And here's a preview of the beautiful setting from tomorrow's birthday outfit post!
