Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style and city living. Hope you have a nice stay!

Light + Bright

The non-stop rain prevented me from taking outfit photos over the past weekend, so things have been a little quiet blog-wise. But yesterday, we finally got a little taste of spring sunshine and Sunita V and I hit the streets after work/class to snap some pics and do a little thrift shopping.

Both of us really struggle with wearing way too much black, so I tried my best to break the habit and wear some lighter and brighter pieces. For work that day, I chose my colorful JCrew boucle skirt (last worn here) from Unique Thrift, scored for just $4, and paired it with a plain white tank (cost unknown) and a textured teal blazer ($14.99, TJ Maxx).

I finished off the look with my black ankle boots ($6.50, Housing Works Tribeca), a pair of black sunnies ($1.50, Forever 21) and some cute gold heart-shaped earrings from the BaubleBar sample sale ($5). Head to toe, the outfit came out to $32.

After our mini photoshoot in Chelsea, Sunita and I headed over to the nearby Goodwill on West 25th Street. Given its Chelsea location, this Goodwill definitely one of the nicer and better-organized ones in Manhattan, but the prices can be just a tad high for my tastes. Luckily, the store was offering a "customer appreciation" 25%-off discount that day, and we were able to snag some cute finds, including a pair of tribal print-inspired pants and a new-with-tags black and white blazer. Stay tuned to see 'em on the blog soon!
