Parkside

I absolutely love my neighborhood in the city! There's one area of it filled with antique, Tudor-styled homes and tree-lined streets. It's gorgeous! Recently, John and I discovered a great little park there- just a short walk from my apartment.




 My mom bought this ring for me at an artisan's consignment shop up in New Paltz, NY while visiting my sister when she went to college there. It's very unique- I've never seen anything else quite like it.















I bought this dress for my trip to Europe last summer. I love the way the soft tonal effect of the floral is contrasted by the sharp geometric striped layout of the print. I've worn in in all seasons- in winter with tights, boots and a cardigan, with all different belts, and in summer as seen here.
It also has a sort of 70's vibe to it.
