Spring in NYC doesn't promise warm weather, but it does promise a beautifully colorful version of its winter self. From Morningside Heights to Brooklyn, the city is officially in full bloom. And as much I love the black-on-black-on-black look, I've begun trading in my combat boots for some spring fun. 

Friday afternoon: Nature's version of happy hour. I mean, how beautiful are these cherry blossoms?! I almost forgot how amazing Columbia University looks in the spring and summer, because I got so used to looking at the fountain that turned into a dumping ground for piles of snow. Not exactly picturesque. This however, is the exact opposite and everything I need to say, TGIF! Let the weekend begin! 

Saturday: My BFF Sonaly just moved into an apartment near Bryant Park, so we hung out for a little while after some margaritas and sangria in midtown. Midtown is always overcrowded, so it was a special treat that we were literally the only people in Bryant Park. Until it started raining, of course...

Surprisingly, this outfit bid well in the rain. I was dying to wear something floral and springy since it was so nice outside, and may have ignored the 50% rain chance when I left the house. This was my first ever romper, and as you'll see in future posts this summer, I'm a little romper obsessed. Ahhh, the only time I will ever allow florals and plaid in one outfit...thankfully this Burberry umbrella never leaves my purse! 

Sunday: I wanted to keep with my weekend-in-pink theme, and I've also been waiting for the perfect opportunity to check out an outdoor street art collection that I hadn't yet seen in Brooklyn. An amazing street artist that I've been following on Instagram for some time, Incarcerated JerkFace, posted a new mural this week at the Bushwick Collective. And just my luck--it's a 50 ft pink wall! The mural is so new that I couldn't find the exact location online. No problem! It ended up being like a scavenger hunt--and just as I was thinking that I may not find it, I turned the corner and was blinded by the pink. Looove! I was walking fairly quickly throughout the neighborhoods, and decided to only take pictures where pink was involved. Enjoy my first adventure at the Bushwick Collective! 

I'll definitely be back to the Bushwick Collective--I mean, I saw only a tenth of the art and I was already in awe! What a perfect weekend adventure spot. Who's coming with next time....?!
