Spring was really slow coming to NYC this year. For the longest time, I wondered if it would ever get here. These pictures were taken a few weeks ago and luckily for us now, spring is most certainly here. In fact, it’s beginning to feel like summer! Not that I mind. With summer comes trips to Coney Island and the beach, ice cream trucks, craft shows, being outside and more opportunities to meet new people. I’m also all about not having to wear leggings anymore!
Isn’t this flower dress from ASOS so pretty? It is one of the newer once I’ve recently added to my collection. I’ve got this routine where every spring and fall I get the itch to update my wardrobe for the upcoming season. It’s not even a conscious decision. I won’t really buy much of anything during the summer and winter but come the in between seasons, I can’t help myself! Do you find that you have a set time of year that you go out and update your wardrobe? Let me know in the comments. I’d be curious to hear what other people’s closet routine is.
Back to the dress though, I really like it. It’s pretty simple but has a dressier look to it then most of the dresses I own. I think I was getting ready to go to a wedding when I realized that I didn’t have much in terms of nicer dresses. Which is kind of funny to me because most people think I’m dressed up all the time because I only wear dresses and yet I usually think I look like a bum. The best thing about this dress though? It’s still available at ASOS!
Besides just wanting to hear about your buying seasons, I’d love to hear tips about making new friends. That’s one of my goals for these warmer seasons but I’ve got to admit, I’m not so great at it. It was easier during college, but it felt like everyone was looking for new friends then. Now I’m almost 30 and living in a new city. I have Mom friends. That’s easy enough to make. But I’d love to meet people to go thrifting with or to craft shows or to see live music. As corny as it is, I’d like to find my tribe. The people who I can invite over for craft nights and dinner parties. Do you have any suggestions? I’m working on getting involved in the art scene here in Brooklyn, but I don’t necessarily know where to start either. Is making new friends something you struggle with?
