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.

With sale season well underway, it’s a fantastic time to snap up investment shoes at a steal. Most of the majors (Barneys, Nordstrom, Saks and Bergdorf) have marked down stock 30-45%. Time to snag some goodies before they’re all gone!

Maxi’s have always been a Summer staple for me. They are so easy and versatile-going from laid back paired with gladiator flats to chic and elegant by adding strappy heels and metallic accessories. I have so many bold prints when it comes to my maxi collection that I jumped at this cobalt blue one. The color is fantastic and it’s the perfect canvas to accessorize.

With warmer weather on the horizon and a new work gig, I decided it was time for a much needed chop. I’ve always been a bit nervous about cutting any more that 1 inch off my hair so when my stylist took a little over 3, I took a sigh of relief when I realized I loved it. With an 85 degree weekend, I was happy to shed my locks….for now 🙂

Last weekend, the hubs and I headed for our caffeine fix courtesy of Blue Bottle Coffee in Meatpacking. The slow drip was delish accompanied by my much anticipated waffle. It was the perfect lazy morning considering this weekend we’ll be switching up our morning ritual from coffee to sushi in ….. Japan! My excitement is of course off the charts as this trip has been in the works for awhile. The food, the fashion, the people…I can’t wait to explore everything!
Cherry Blossom season hopefully will be in full bloom, giving Wishbone the most amazing backdrop for my Japanese adventure. Although I love my basic, never fail pieces, I am vibrating with the thought of warmer weather, flowers blooming and color, color, color!
