Hello, 70°

I'm so excited to hop a plane with Katie to Savannah tomorrow morning, where the forecast is in the 70°s for the next several days. I love denim for a casual spring number and this shirt dress is absolutely ideal for sauntering around town. From flats to an entertaining new novel, here are my trustworthy packing essentials:

yellow snakeskin flats iphone case / blue stone ring / weekend bag / sunnies / tortoise bib / lip gloss / bobby pins / you should have known: a novel / denim shirt dress

PS. Follow along on my trip to savannah!


les musts for march


1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10

March is a time to get back to basics and live more simply again – celebrating simple pleasures – opening the windows and letting in fresh air, going for long walks with the pup, and picking up blooms at the farmers' market. These are my picks for doing just that.

Of note: that lipstain matches the grand budapest hotel, which is coming out Friday. (I already picked up the soundtrack!) And it's definitely a "color-of-the-moment" that I can get behind. Those sunnies are "marzipan tortoise" – I'm sold. Could anything sound more fabulous! I'm currently living in and loving sneakers for the first time (well, since my go-to chucks as a kid) – and this chambray new balance pair is a must for march! Finally, I'm loving the new look of CN Traveler with Pilar Guzman taking over as EIC. 


Crushing on Colorful Coats

I have been swooning over the sea of colorful coats and jackets dotting the NYFW landscape this week. In a city known for black on black ensembles, it's a trend that I'm delighted to embrace! It's hard to feel down sporting my J.Crew Sabrina Double Cloth coat about town. Here are a few other favorites I'm looking to shop...

Tom Robbins writes in Jitterbug Perfume
“The only bubble in the flat champagne of February is Valentine’s Day. It was no accident that our ancestors pinned Valentine’s Day on February’s shirt: he or she lucky enough to have a lover in frigid, antsy February has cause for celebration, indeed.”

But this year February also plays host to the Olympics (mark your calendar for the opening ceremony on Feb 6th), House of Cards season 2 debuts Feb 14th (catch up on season 1!), and New York Fashion Week rears its head (actually looking forward to seeing some crisp fall looks after this polar vortex). Seems like this little month will pack quite a punch! These are my picks for cozy and colorful staples to make the most of it.
