It’s somewhat eerie that I had this outfit on my calendar to post today. I meant to finish this post last night, but after a 11-hour workday on a Sunday, I couldn’t muster up the concentration to write last night. Fast forward to this morning when I was skimming through the headlines and saw the tragic news that fashion designer L’Wren Scott had passed away. Here, I am wearing 3 of the pieces from her holiday collaboration with Banana Republic.
Welp, those feelings of spring were really short-lived, weren’t they? Now it’s back to being bundled up! Currently feels like 5 degrees in New York. I can hardly contain my excitement. #sarcasm
Turtlenecks are my favorite way to try and stay warm while wearing a dress in the winter months. (Another outfit here!) My go-to is the tissue tee at J.Crew because it’s super light-weight and doesn’t add too much bulk.
The abundance of sunshine on Saturday, the extra hour of daylight on Sunday, the 60 degree day yesterday, and leaving work this week when it’s still light out have all confirmed one thing… I may or may not have a slight case of Seasonal Affective Disorder. Let’s just say that this spring-like weather is truly like a breath of fresh air!
I’ve been trying to incorporate little bits of spring and pops of color to get me by until the warmer weather is here to stay. From bright blooms to punchy polishes, every little touch helps to fight away these winter blues!
PS – If you’re out shopping on Saturday (it’s supposed to be gorgeous!), be sure to swing by DKNY on Madison Avenue! I’ll be there from 2-4 styling some spring-y outfits, shopping, and sipping on champagne.
While it wasn’t quite bare legs weather in New York this past weekend, I can’t complain about the abundance of sunshine! I wore this dress & denim jacket combo a few weeks ago when Mother Nature gave us a little preview of spring. When I was getting ready, I couldn’t decide between these leopard pumps or a pop-of-color (most likely in the form of my pink J.Crew pumps). I like the look of the leopard with the black, white, and denim, but I feel like the hot pink pumps would have popped more for photos in front of this mural.
How many more days of these bundled-up, layered looks?! I seriously can’t take it much longer. I’m scared I’m just going to take a cab to the airport instead of my office one of these mornings. Where are you spring?!
When I wear hats, it’s usually for one of a couple of reasons…
1. I’ve gone a few too many days without washing my hair. (#sexy)
2. I just left the gym or Soul Cycle and would prefer to not talk to anyone I know while looking like a sweaty mess. (How does this always happen in New York? I thought this was supposed to be a big city. It’s inevitable that you will run into everyone you know when you look your worst.)
3. My roots are halfway down to my ears and I can’t get in to my colorist for a few more days.
So, basically, hats are my way of covering up hair havoc. I believe this particular occasion was a case of Scenario #3.
I feel a tad bit silly posting about ‘Signs of Spring’ when most of us are getting pummeled with snow right about now, but last weekend, it really did feel like spring! It was warm enough to don bare legs during the day and I couldn’t have been happier. If the temperature is above zero, you can almost always find me drinking an iced coffee, but I finally didn’t feel like a freak asking for a cold beverage. Now, if only I could get a tan…
Happy March! I’m counting down the days until it actually feels like spring… It’s got to be soon, right?! If you’re in New York, you have to go to Houston & Bowery and check out the most recent mural when the weather is nice! It’s so bright, colorful, and all-around awesome. Something to brighten these winter blues, that’s for sure! I seriously can’t believe it’s supposed to snow again tomorrow. #MakeItStop

Happy Friday! Back at it with the pajama jeans. I seriously cannot get enough of these pants. I’ve been wearing them constantly… That could partially because I’ve been gorging myself and have barely had time to workout and my waistline is rapidly expanding, but I digress.
