Ah The Weekend...

My weekend wasn't crazy or anything.  Which, to be honest, it how I typically like it.  Saturday my husband was out taking an architecture exam so I spent a good hour just trying on various pieces I have been gathering for spring.  Specifically, Easter dresses.  I am a fan of old fashioned dress-me-up-for-church Easters with baskets of chocolate, formal dinner and spring motif everywhere.  So for lack of better posting options, here are all the pictures I took!

Hi Lara,

My job is like yours I'm in the city and then right out of the city if its not at the hotel I'm staying at or some place near the business I'm visiting I won't see it. My friends were super excited when I went to Greece last year and thought I got to see really cool things, I saw our corproate office and Greece and the hotel we stayed at, nothing else : )

Thanks for all the great shopping tips! I have some free time in the middle of the week I'm hoping to get out and about to explore!

I think the first look is perfect for Easter! Are you in NYC today??? You had mentioned something about how you hope hte weather is nice when you're here on business. Only staying 1 night?
Has anyone ever told you you look like Lily Allen? am I way off on that one? But seriously, I think you do.
(PS-my BF is an architect too!)
