Cream Of The Crop

A day off (it’s never really a day off) is great and with good weather like a few days ago is even better. Sometimes it’s nice to wake up and not have to rush anywhere, but your closet. Here I’m wearing a cropped long sleeve top, a skirt that can work for everyday and the office (the slit zips up for maximum coverage) too. I always feel a breath of fresh air when I bring out these patent beauties. They are just so sophisticated. I find myself pairing them with this Kirna Zabete for Target bag for an overall feminine look. It’s never a bad thing to toughen it up in a leather jacket and sunnies. Cool vibes all around. 😉

How did you spend the last days of Fall weather?
Will you still be wearing the crop top trend this winter?

I Refuse To Sink

Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend.

I found this C. Viviani necklace at a thrift store in Brooklyn. I felt it was appropriate for the holiday, with it’s nautical inspired design, kind of like a rope to an anchor.This weekend finally felt like summer and I loved every minute of it. I wore one of my favorite camis to the park, comfortable pants, my wedge mules and a bright red lip to conquer the day!

Enjoy the short work week!

April Showers Bring May…

April was such a teaser. I hope May brings more of the brighter side of Spring. Here is a look back at those better weather days.

Which is your favorite April look? What would you like to see more of in May?
