There's a half empty box of 24-hour relief Claritin sitting on my kitchen counter. If my constant sneezing from hay fever is an indication, then spring has indeed finally sprung and is in full, blooming force. From the cherry blossoms in Central Park, to the newly planted pots of tulips lining the walkways of Lexington Ave apartments, really, what says spring better than flowers? When it comes to fashion, gone are last year's delicate and diminutive floral prints to make way for Spring 15's big, bold, oversized florals.
While I mainly stick to solid colors and shy away from prints of really any kind which often overwhelm my petite frame, something about this feminine floral onesie from Keepsake just works for me. Dare I say, this is my favorite onesie in the closet right now. I've paired it with flat gladiator sandals on days I know I'll be walking a lot around the city, and I've dressed it up with 4-inch heels for an evening rooftop drink. I think the key to this onesie is, as I always say, balance and proportion: the florals, while big, are soft and muted, the shape, while boxy, is balanced by the short length.
On a side note, I've been craving bubble tea lately, so I thought it would be a great idea to combine my craving with a blog shoot in the crazy, wonderful streets of Chinatown. Thanks so much to Carrie who made the trek all the way down south for my food whims. And since we were already in the area, we fit in some wonderful xiao long bao - soup dumplings - and fried rice at the always popular Joe's Shanghai. If you're in NYC, do yourself a favor and get yourself down here to slurp away on these steamed pillowy treats!
