Once again, New York weather cannot make up it’s mind.  My carefully packed Moncler coat has now come out for an encore performance given the 30 degree drop from last week and the current blizzard hitting Manhattan. I have to admit, it’s a bit deflating when my new espadrilles have to be put back in their box.

Although dark colors always accompany cold weather for me, a bright pop of color is always a pick me up.  I had been waiting for literally years for the perfect Chanel red flap.  As may Chanel lovers know, red is a popular color and not always available each season. When I laid eyes on this beauty, it was love at first sight.  The color is amazing and so happy.  I will definitely wear this year round but it’s the perfect cure for Winter blues.

How is it that something as simple as a bright color can also brighten the day?  Hot pink is such a mood lifter and these shorts are some of the happiest I’ve ever come across.  With the Pride Parade on over the weekend, bursting with every color of the rainbow, what better time to add to the color spectrum. A crisp white shirt and garden party inspired heels pull everything together for a clean and polished look.

With our Paris trip less than a week away, I was inspired over the weekend to bring out one of my favorite Summer dresses-which happened to be a sale find in Sydney. My Collette sundress is one of my faves and perfect for a sticky NYC day.  The detail is everything and can easily be dressed up or down.  I chose to add a denim top for a more laid back feel.

The Peg

It seems like the bane of my fashion existence has always been finding jeans or pants that fit my short frame.  I’ve accepted it’s usually a forgone conclusion that I will inevitably have to visit a tailor shortly after every purchase.  I hate to admit it, but more times than not, I’ve even purchased denim that I kinda like just because the inseam magically fits.  I can’t help but give into the excitement.

Enter the Peg leg: A classic silhouette that lends it’s self to any height but especially friendly to the vertically challenged.  I love the cut of Topshop’s version.  The high-waist is bang on trend and gray pairs perfectly with my love of the color pink.
