{OUTFIT + GIVEAWAY } CHERRY TREES & JACQUES LEVINE...


 { 5th street & Avenue B }

In the time between now and when you last saw me here, spring has decided to take up a semi-permanent residence in Manhattan. Jackets have been shed, legs have been bared and everywhere trees are absolutely saturated with pink and white blooms.

Those with allergies are probably not as overjoyed as I am, but lucky for you this blog isn't about people with allergies. #Anyway, on Sunday afternoon, Meghan, Tully and I took a little turn around the hood to soak up the sunshine and marvel at all the sunbathing hipsters in Thompkin's Square Park. 


My ensemble is a mish-mash of old and new - my steal of a Forever 21 sweatshirt, last season's Joie dress, ultra-reflective Westward // Leaning shades, the ancient Polo Ralph Lauren bag, and these darling Jacques Levine sandals

I am so glad it's maxi season again, can I just say that? I was talking to Landon at the Manhattan Vintage Show recently about how one of my new goals is to live a floor-length lifestyle. Everything to the grown, all the time. It just sounds glamorous and relaxing, no?


Would you look at these angels? I happen to think that photo shoots are much more fun with friends, especially friends with outfits that coordinate nicely with the scenery. Also, we have to have a moment for Meghan's perfect pony. #showmethepony


{ Just a couple of rommies with a special hair situation... }


Oh, and to make up for my absence of late, a giveaway! (I've been working over at Lifestyle Mirror, and you can check out all my articles here.) One lucky reader will get a pair of the 'Stella' sandals from Jacques Levine in the color scheme of their choosing, perfect for spring and summer strolling. As per usual, the rules to enter are pretty simple:

1. Leave a comment below with your email address [so I can contact you if you win].
2. For an extra entry, follow and tweet a little hello to @shutupilovethat & @jacqueslevine.

*I'll announce the winner (chosen using the random number generator) on Tuesday, May 6th! So you have until Monday at midnight to enter.

*U.S. residents only (apologies, readers abroad!) 


**THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED - THANK YOU!**




 ** Good luck! **

  29. Loooooove those sunglasses. Except I, apparently, have the skinniest face in the world and therefore sunglasses swallow me whole. Maybe I should try them though, they fit you perfectly!
