I hope everyone had a nice long weekend! I enjoyed mine with good friends, food, and weather that was a little too amazing that I got a bit sunburn on my scalp. :'( I really need to get a cute hat!

Royal Blue Blazer & Stripes

DailyLook is amazing enough to offering my readers 20% off their first purchase. It is very easy and simple, all you need to do is click on this link and sign up. They sell amazing things on their website, ranging from clothing, shoes, bags, to jewelry! The best part is that they are always updating their items, sometimes on a daily basis. I find myself checking their page almost every day to see what cute new things they have. (hehe)

In this post, the royal blue blazer and heels are from DailyLook.

I've been looking for nude clear heels for a while now and was ecstatic when I found these on DailyLook! And priced at $35, they were definitely a great purchase! Clear heels are an edgy trend with a feminine touch that pairs well with almost any outfit. If you are looking for cute heels that are both versatile and fashionable, I highly recommend these. :)

Central Park is truly an amazing park! I was pleasantly surprised at every turn, there are numerous bridges, a few lakes, tons of gorgeous flowers, a carousel, and more! It is definitely a must visit place if you ever find yourself in New York. 

There was a man making giant bubbles in front of me, if you look closely on the photo above, there is a bubble on the top left.
