Brooklyn Botanical Garden

Here is the second outfit from my trip to Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. Kelly and I couldn’t get enough of the beautiful tulips in every color you can imagine! And of course, more cherry blossoms! They are so beautiful but are gone so fast so I think we definitely took advantage of cherry blossom season this spring. I don’t remember them ever being so vibrant and beautiful!

Cherry Blossoms

Here is part one of my visit to to Brooklyn Botanic Garden a few weeks ago. I went with Kelly just in time to see these incredible cherry blossoms. How amazing are they?? I wore my favorite summer dress for these photos; I’m always looking for a dress that’s light and easy with sleeves so this one was calling my name. A bright color, fun print, but also relatively modest and it’s something I’ll be wearing all summer long!

OMG!

I had way too much fun at the Rebecca Minkoff sample sale a few weeks ago. I usually end up regretting sample sale purchases but not this time. I love all four of my purchases! I need to learn my lesson and keep this trend up for future sample sales. I went with my friend Michelle and found a few amazing pieces, including this fun OMG clutch!  I wouldn’t normally buy something like this only because I wouldn’t spend the money on something I wouldn’t be using often. But the sample price was totally doable and I grabbed it because YOLO!

Blue Abstract Print Dress

The best kind of Monday blues, amiright?! I saw this amazing blue abstract print dress on Bandits Of Colour‘s instagram and they had mentioned it was sold out. But they ended up having one left in my size so it was a lucky day for me! I know I will be living in this BCBG dress all summer long. I don’t think I’ve introduced you guys to Bandits Of Colour so let me just tell you a little bit about them. They’re a Brooklyn based boutique selling designer pieces at major discount and I’m talking like 70 or 80% off original retail price! I stopped by the boutique a couple of weeks ago and chose a few pieces (can’t wait to show you everything!)and I finally met the adorable and stylish owner, Lizzie, who has the sickest shoe collection by the way. I saw pieces from Rebecca Minkoff, DVF, Rachel Zoe, Ted Baker, Splendid, BCBG, Clover Canyon, and Free People, just to share the range she has.

This was one of the bags I scored at the Rebecca Minkoff sample sale. I was telling my friend Michelle of Le Hoarder about this bag I saw in Nordstrom Rack on sale. I kept telling her it was the perfect shade of blue and on sale and I wanted it so bad! And every time I told her I wanted it, she would tell me not to get it because I could get a better deal. Well, let’s just say that Michelle always knows best because there was just ONE at the sample sale and guess who got it? Yep, me and for 1/4 the price! I’m not exaggerating! Yes, yes, Michelle, you told me so! 😉
