City Garden

30 May 2012



I love how New York City completely transforms on the weekend. If you look closely you'll notice that everyone's step is just a bit slower, laughs are a bit louder, and although the streets are as crowded as ever there is some sort of serenity that takes over. On this particular day, Justin and I headed over to Union Square where we browsed the farmer's market. Of course I was immediately drawn in by the beautiful array of flowers that were there. I can't help it, I am always flower obsessed! As the days are warming up, my vast collection of floral dresses have been coming out to play and I couldn't be more happy. My first summer in the city has already been a magical one so far.

This dress is beautiful - I'm a little shy when it comes to pastels so the lovely bright primary colours in this dress are the perfect in-between to darker wintery shades. I also love how the bow of your pretty hat matches the dress so nicely :)

Melody said...

Glad to hear your summer is starting off great! That dress is SO pretty, love how you styled it!

I have heard so much about the Union Square market, supposedly it is amaze. When I am there in the summer I must go! Love the super cute floral print. It reminds me of these awesome heels I saw on another blog...almost like a rainforest. Perfect warm day outfit especially with the hot yellow satchel.

What a fab dress--the open back is the perfect touch and I love how you paired it with the bowler.

And yes when the weather is that gorgeous it feels like you're getting a gift.
