This has been a frustrating Spring so far in New York. A couple of weeks ago it was gorgeous and sunny, followed by yet a few more freezing days (Andy was upset about all his rooftop greenery: "My roses can't take another freeze!"), followed by a week of overcast shadows and rain. I am absolutely one of those annoying New Yorkers who's all about "toughing it out"—Ottawa, where I'm from, is way more brutal—but there are moments where you just REALLY want to wear those floral pants you just got.
Luckily, I've been hoping to pair florals with chunky knits for awhile. I love the dichotomy in the patterns and textures, the ambiguity of seasons, and how while it's unexpected, it's still very much feminine. Plus this particular pairing is just comfy as hell.
I am asked about my rings all the time, and when I recently posted the above shot of my rings on Instagram, I got another flood of questions about them. I buy them (and I use the present tense of "buy" intentionally, because when I inevitably lose one, I do go back and buy another) from the Marina Pecoraro stand at the Artists & Fleas market in the back of Chelsea Market. I've gotten a few fellow Bachelor girls onto them as well. They're gold-filled (meaning they never tarnish, which is great because I'm able to wash my hands, swim, and apply hand cream without worrying about fading) and cost $20 each. She has an Etsy shop but unfortunately doesn't sell the rings there. So, it's a good excuse to visit New York. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
