OOTD Throwback: NYC, The Met & a Floral Dress

OOTD Throwback: NYC, The Met & a Floral Dress

I once posted this very look on my now-defunct blog pawprintsandmint and could not resist re-doing this post for a throwback as it documented one of my favourite days captured in New York City. Living in New York had a lot of fun moments, and I am grateful to have been able to live in Manhattan for the experience alone.

As a teen, I would often pair these ‘Uggs’ with a skirt and wear this as a staple look for one entire summer, which was how long they held up.
