What’s better than a traditional little black dress? A little navy dress! While I’ve fallen in love with prints and bright colors this season, there’s something so simple, sleek, and sexy about a clean, form fitting silhouette.

We just celebrated the first weekend of summer, and it sure was adventurous! It was a gorgeous Sunday here in Manhattan. I spent the weekend, in the sunshine, shopping, attending a birthday party, and spent a fun afternoon at the Central Park Carnival. Yes, there is a carnival in Central Park during the summer, full of rides, games, cotton candy, and of course, ice cream! My summer in New York has felt like a stay-cation, so far. We’ve tried to do something adventurous each weekend, besides stopping by our usual hangouts. This weekend was the carnival.

To style my outfit for our fun afternoon, I chose a bright yellow fit and flare dress from Pookie and Sebastian. There is absolutely no way you’ll ever have a bad day in a bright yellow dress. The color is so happy. It attracts positive attention and usually a smile from others around you.

The food is absolutely delicious.

For as long as I remember, I have had a fascination with Swarovski Crystals. I am a girl in love with all things that sparkle, so it is only natural for all of my accessories to be crystallized, starting with my iPhone.

It takes many hours for me to crystallize these iPhone cases however in this video, you will get a quick, behind the scenes look at the creation of my crystallized masterpiece.

Baublebar is one of my favorite accessory boutiques. It began as an online jewelry shop, but recently, Baublebar opened a pop up shop in Soho. This week, Baublebar had a fabulous DIY Swarovski event hosted by Grace Atwood from Stripes and Sequins. During the event, I purchased the Emerald Iced Bracelet, and was given a small, jewelry box to embellish with Swarovski crystals. I have a love for anything that sparkles, so you can imagine my excitement when I was able to crystallize my own jewelry box.

One of my favorite parts of spring, is fashion transition. You’ve had it with your winter wardrobe and you are considering burning your winter coat.

As much as you may want to go on a spending spree buying all of these bright beauties, you realize that it will be a few months before the weather gets warm enough to wear them.
