Beautiful tulips seen while walking around Nolita.
I have yet to actually have a cupcake from here but I always walk by and love how cute it looks inside.
Tompkins Square Park on one of the most lovely days New York has seen in quite a while.
The Grey Dog’s Breakfast.
Always remember to look up! You never know what you might see.

Dog sat for my friend on Sunday. Meet Frankie, the dingo.
Spent some time over on Avenue C for a change of scenery.
Always love visiting this quirky park on East 9th street.
Finished up the weekend with a yummy dinner at The Wayland. If you ever are in the area, you should definitely swing in and treat yourself to a very cool drink they offer called “I Hear Banjos – encore!” It’s made with apple pie moonshine, rye whiskey, house apple-spice bitters, and applewood smoke comes pouring out the top when you lift up the top glass. Very cool, very tasty. We also ordered and split the burrata, brussel sprouts and the beef short rib on toast. All fantastic dishes.
Burrata on toast.
Romantic little spot for the perfect ending to a lovely Sunday. xo
My mom and I always joke that we love to wear our sunglasses no matter where we are, no matter the weather. We love feeling incognito, so that could mean the sunglasses are left on in the grocery store or when it’s raining out and overcast. So, when Sunglass Hut invited me to their Mother’s Day event, I stopped by and checked out their newest styles. I know which pair I want to buy my mom, but I won’t be sharing that here since she reads my blog daily. But I will show you which ones I picked out! I have admired this style from a far for a while now but wasn’t sure I could pull them off. However, after trying them on and wearing them for a day, I’m hooked and so happy I can now add them to my favorite sunglass rotation! xo

With all this crazy weather going on, I’ve just tried to hunker down, wear what’s practical when it’s pouring rain outside and get on with the day. But that can take the fun out of fashion and leaves me in usually really dark, monochromatic colors. There is nothing wrong with that (trust me – I love an all black look) but seeing that the weather is perking up a bit and is supposed to be in the mid 60s all next week, my mood has began to change. That said, it was perfect timing when Ted Baker asked me to style a few pieces from their SS14 collection, especially since they are known for bright colors, which immediately got me out of my funk. After checking out the full collection (there were gorgeous prints galore!) I settled on this cobalt blue dress with some lime accents for a pretty color blocking ensemble. I love this look because it’s punchy, bright and is perfect for a warm spring night out on the town!

Seeing as my mother lives all the way across the country in Seattle, we sadly aren’t going to be together this coming Sunday, but that doesn’t stop me from thinking about her of course, and what I would do if we were together. A typical morning on Mother’s Day in our house would be spent eating a homemade breakfast of eggs, toast, bacon and coffee. Afterward, we would most likely take a walk around the lake with Barney. I wish I could be with my family this weekend, but then yesterday when I received this gorgeous orchid and Calvin Klein perfume, it prompted me to photograph it and share it on the blog as a little online tribute to my wonderful mother.
I plan on giving my mom this beautiful orchid and perfume when she visits in June (can you take an orchid on a plane?!) but for those of you that have your mothers close by, you can celebrate this Sunday and receive a stunning complimentary orchid plant of your own with any large spray purchase from the euphoria fragrance collection at Macy’s and Macys.com. Share your gift with #euphoriaformoms.

This weekend was so beautiful. I spent mine mostly in Williamsburg, eating avocado toast, playing scrabble and taking walks down by the river. The city skyline views are pretty incredible from across the way. What did you guys do? Hopefully something fun and equally relaxing. :) xo
Happy Thursday! What’s up with this crazy rain, huh? I had to be out and about in the elements for part of the day and it was pretty brutal. Hope you all stayed warm and dry! Anyway, lately I’ve been super into soft slogan tees so I thought I would do a round up of my favorites from around the web! xo
I know you saw a bit of this outfit in Monday’s post, but my friend was kind of enough to snap a few pictures of me in it when I actually had heels on, so I thought I would share. :) I swear, when buying investment pieces, it’s key that they both be comfortable and stylish, because these AYR jeans, this leather Cargo Biker jacket by All Saints and of course my beloved Celine, have been in heavy rotation as of late. I always say, it’s the cost per wear that makes spending the money worthwhile! xo
