Pizza with broccoli, lemon, goat cheese, garlic, mushrooms, and basil
On Monday, I didn’t even bother putting together a real outfit because I was sick of the cold, and of having to constantly bundle and unbundle. So I wore a Torrid top, Yours pants (with leggings underneath again), and my C&G heart headband, but no other jewelry or makeup.
Steve and I went to the Museum of Natural History–which, as Steve pointed out, is like a zoo but with dead animals.
We did get to see a few live animals at the butterfly conservatory:
Tomorrow is my 29th birthday! 😀 I celebrated over the weekend with my traditional combination of beach-going, dinner, and an evening party. I’m putting the pictures a bit out of order (dinner, beach, then party) because this amazing dress needs to be at the beginning of the post.
Dress: Dots via a fatshion blogger who was selling some of her clothes, shoes: Clarks, fascinator: birthday present from Steve’s mom :), necklace, large ring, and rhinestone wristband: So Good, silver glitter bangle: clothing swap, rhinestone bracelet: Deb, small ring: ASOS, earrings: Artifaktori (which has since closed)
My recent post about visiting Re/Dress NYC brought back great memories of that trip. So I decided to post a few pictures of it, even though they’re from last year.
I hope I can make it back to New York sometime soon!
First meal in the city: pizza and garlic knots
