This past weekend was the first time I actually started to believe Spring would make it’s entrance into NYC….eventually. Every tulip was is full bloom and the white blossoms in Central Park that had suddenly appeared while we were in Japan, were reminiscent of the cherry blossoms we had become accustomed to.
I took full advantage and spent the weekend, like every other New Yorker, outside for every possible second. I had been waiting for the weather to cooperate with my gladiator itch and new goodie from The Dreslyn – sheer perfection from Equipment. The light and airy silk was perfection with really… anything, but I thought my golden sandals and perfectly worn in boyfriend shorts were the right mix.

Halfway into our whirlwind excursion through Japan, we took a day to relax and enjoy the amazing weather (a fantastic change from the harsh cold in NYC). I took full advantage and of course opted for my white, tux jumpsuit-nothing says Spring has arrived like a crisp white ensemble. When I spotted this little number, I could hardly wait to rip into The Dreslyn box that promptly arrived a week prior to our trip. I love the chic twist the tux detailing gives this jumpsuit. Definitely ready to hit a rooftop bar in New York in my all white when we return!

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!

Having lived in Sydney for so long, my East coast style quickly evolved to a bit more laid back. I always felt Sydney had a very L.A. vibe, which I love when it comes to fashion.
When Brooke Taylor Corcia opened her carefully curated store, The Dreslyn, in Los Angeles, it was instantly apparent she was spot on in knowing exactly what every cool girl wants in her closet. With a mix of must have staples like Current Elliott and Rag & Bone to new cult favorites like Brittish designer Sophie Hulme, a visit to The Dreslyn is perfect for adding new goodies to your closet. When I stumbled upon this fantastic site, it instantly took me back to my Sydney roots with pieces perfect for brunching in Paddington (Sydney’s Soho).
With lighter colors and white denim already in stores, I loved Current Elliott’s Spring take on “The Fling“. The light blue and slim boyfriend fit are a fantastic transition piece from my darker, tattered boyfriends. I’m officially obsessed!
