In honor of the first semi-warm day of the year, I broke out my favorite Michael Kors skirt and Target button up and paired them with a pair of black stockings and a fab pair of ankle boots. When I came across a few ivy covered houses in Midtown, I new it was the perfect place to photograph this dressy casual look.

Last week, my boyfriend surprised me with tickets to see Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden. It goes without saying that the concert was absolutely amazing. I’d seen Billy Joel perform once before when I was a freshman at Syracuse University and he gave a concert at the Carrier Dome.
