Ducks In A Row

Nature is all around us, but in more places than others, so it’s hard to stop and appreciate. Say what you want about the busy city of New York, but when Spring arrives, there’s nothing like it.

I enjoy the outdoors when I’m out working on outfits of the day, to sit and take it all in one deep breath at a time. Here I am wearing an oldie, but goodie DVF dress from a sample sale. I wore it to a Baby Shower this past weekend in Long Island. I love the color purple and it fit right in because my friend is having a girl!

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Hope you all have time to take a celebratory tequila shot because Spring is finally here in NYC!

Black Friday

Freezing weather came early and so did Black Friday! To fight off those blistering temperatures I decide to wear an all black look to keep me warm. It’s never a good thing to wear leather leggings in the cold without a pair of tights underneath. It really kept me warm, even brave enough to take off my coat to show you all the rest of my outfit.

The booties are truly a favorite of mine and I actually recommend suede booties over leather ones. I especially like it when the boots age a bit and it starts to show, a vintage touch that can tone down a head to toe sequin look. I paired my leggings and booties with one of my thicker turtlenecks for added warmth and my wool coat for a feminine and sophisticated finish.

The red on my nails stood out even more when I accessorized with all sorts of rings: cocktail, statement and midi rings. The icing on the cake is none other than a pair of black sunglasses, it has New York written all over it.

Do you live in black clothing? Do you think “all black everything” is a New York thing?

Happy Friday! Happy Weekend!

xoxo, Budget$ai
