How was everyone’s weekend? On Saturday, I met up with a new client who is in town visiting from Australia – I can’t wait to take her shopping this week. Afterward, I hung out with friends in the sun for a few hours before eventually making my way to a late dinner at Upstate Craft Beer and Oyster Bar. I highly recommend trying this spot – the oysters were amazing. Then on Sunday, I met friends for a very decadent and leisurely Easter brunch at The Top of The Standard. By the time we finished up, it was already late afternoon, but a few of us decided to change and head up to Levain in Harlem. It was pretty amazing because there was no line for their incredible cookies! But, that might have been because we got there 10 minutes before they closed. Once we had dessert, we thought it might be a good idea to get some actual dinner so we stopped into The Cecil for gumbo, broiled prawns and some collard greens. I finished up my weekend by being lazy in bed and making my way through the first season of Game of Thrones. So intense and so addicting!
Here are a few pictures from the past few days…
A charming block in Chelsea.
New pretty things for spring.
More cherry blossoms!

Happy Monday – here’s to a productive week! xo

Just a quick hello to say have a happy Friday! I thought I would take a quick snap of what I wear on a casual day of running errands, working from home and easing into my weekend.
Outfit breakdown: This t-shirt is incredibly soft and has a worn-in feel that I love, which is perfect for feeling comfortable while still looking cute and pulled together. Same goes for these boyfriend jeans – they are loose but still hang well on my hips and have the perfect amount of distressing going on. And last but not least, my trusty New Balance sneakers. I have been living in them over the past couple weeks and my feet couldn’t be happier. :)

Hope you all have fun plans this weekend. I intend to sleep in, eat really good food (going to the Boom Boom room for brunch on Sunday!) and try and start a new book. Any recommendations? xo

Lately I have really been into leather pants, slouchy blazers and finding the perfect white v-neck. Maybe it’s been the rough winter we’ve had or the fact that I feel like my skin hasn’t seen the sun in far too long, but even now as the weather is finally starting to warm up, I still haven’t been reaching for any of my favorite dresses or skirts. But I guess all it takes is finding that fresh new piece you just can’t wait to wear, which for me was this little fit and flare number by Parker via Amazon. I love the way it hugs my curves perfectly, the bold, cheerful pattern and the fact that it has made me really excited to dress a little more feminine and girly again!

After being away for almost three weeks, I was pretty happy to spend time in my city this weekend. The weather was amazing, I was surrounded by friends and family for two days straight and spent a ton of time outside in the sun. Plus I was able to live in this dress without being cold, while downing iced coffee. Spring is a glorious time of year, even if it can feel fleeting at times.
Wearing Karen Walker “Helter Skelter” Sunglasses, a denim vest from Forever 21, a Zara dress, and a fedora I bought last summer from Target.
On Sunday I ordered an excellent Jambon Beurre baguette sandwich from Lafayette. The bonus? They add mini gherkins!
Blooms are blossoming everywhere!
Obsessed with my new dress from Zara.
More gorgeous skyline views of New York and the Chrysler Building. These images will never get old to me.
This is Frankie, my friend’s dingo. She’s my little East Village love.
This bakery makes me miss Paris.
One gigantic marshmellow!
The very beautiful, yet very exclusive Gramercy Park.
More beautiful blooms!
Happy Monday, my loves. I hope you have a lovely week. xo
Just a fun little roundup for your Friday of some my recent outfits I’ve shared on Instagram. To see more, follow me here!
Spring is finally here, at least I think it is (please stay 60 degree weather!), and that makes me so excited to starting trying out new color combinations. I found this great roundup on Who What Wear thanks to one of my clients and wanted to share it with you guys. Some of these pairings are more expected than others but that’s what makes palette experimenting so fun! So, which one of these color trifectas would you try?
One of my favorite views of Seattle from the overlook at Kerry Park.
Spring is finally here!
Funny puppy. I like how it looks like he is smiling for the camera.
The houses surrounding Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill are so majestic and beautiful. I could stare at them (and cherry blossoms) all day.
We climbed the castle. 100 steps exactly!
Another amazing view at the top of Queen Anne.
While I was in college, my parents sold the house I grew up in and decided it was time for a change. So they left Richmond Beach, which is about 20 minutes north of Seattle, and moved to Lake Union to live on a houseboat for a year. The scenery was amazing from the top deck, which was of a perfect, unobstructed view of the Space Needle and all of downtown Seattle. Unbeatable.
Goofing off at my Godmother’s surprise party on Saturday.
My amazing parents, who celebrated 40 years of marriage last month. Love you both! xo
