What NYC Recessionista Wears – spring elf

Only in looking at these photos of what I wore yesterday did I realize that I looked like a total elf. Well, we finally had gorgeous and warm spring weather here in NYC yesterday, so you can call me your spring elf.

Ross Simons pearl earrings (similar) / Ann Taylor necklace (similar) / Old Navy striped dress and belt (similar) / J. Crew bracelet (similar) / wishbone bracelet c/o Julep / bracelets c/o Ann Taylor spring 2013 (here and here) / Prima Donna bracelet (similar) / watch c/o Caravelle by Bulova / J. Crew tights (similar) / Clarks ‘Charlie’ brogues

I love this dress — it’s so effortless and simple — but I am not so sure about these tights anymore.  I love them with some outfits … it gives that hint of quirk … but then sometimes I feel like I am wearing split pea soup on my legs 🙂

It was a Monday morning and I was running on about 5.5 hours of sleep … do you ever have those days where you leave the house, and then later you find yourself questioning your outfit?

Yeah … that was me yesterday.
