My boyfriend, Lucas, recently spoiled me with an awesome new lens for our Nikon, so (as you can see) we went a bit snapshot crazy outside this time. I'm looking forward to much more personal style photos with this baby, particularly since our Brazil trip is heading upon us in about 2 measly little weeks! 

I haven't really rounded up a "what to pack" (or otherwise wear) checklist yet, but from the looks of it, I'm leaning towards these trusty, no-fuss maxi style dresses (both the girly, boho kinds and the clean, minimal racerback ones). I recently picked up this heather-grey-oatmeal-ish colored simple dress at H&M a couple days ago, and I'm not sure whether it's the supple soft feel I love more or the fact that it cut my "get ready and go" time to a mere 3 minutes at most. I love those moments when I'm not standing in my closet, twiddling my fingers and actually believing in my head, "I have nothing to wear." Other priceless moments include finding cool stuff at mind-boggling bargain steals -- such as this vintage leather Wang-esque backpack that I scored on eBay for 5 BUCKS, or these platform booties I picked up at this Strawberry store in NYC for $24. It's like retail orgasm to say the least. ;P

PS: I'll be listing lots of cool dresses (some sweet vintage ones as well) on my eBay store, WILLOWGIRLNYC, by the end of the week. Stay tuned for some great finds at steal prices.

And for everyone who left those lovely comments in my previous outfit post, big bear hugs to you guys! 

PS: I just "revived" my tweets!
I will be updating like a mad woman.
