Winter is Coming……Back!

 

This winter’s transition to spring has been an extremely unpredictable one. In order to compensate, it is the perfect opportunity to pump the brakes on that spring wardrobe we are all dying to pull out and go to some warm, but colorful transitional pieces like this darling dress highlighted in today’s post. This is a long sleeved mini, which happens to be a favorite look of mine in any season! The light blue and cream color combination screams, “welcome, spring”, yet allows you warmth and comfort in this non- spring weather we are still encountering here in the North East. Be practical, but pretty. This darling dress was one I picked up in a small hotel boutique in upstate NY. It doesn’t have to be a big name or have big price tag to make a big statement. Finds like this are gems. Stay warm and get your closet ready, as if it hasn’t been for a month!! Spring weather WILL come! Until then, improvise xoB

Functional and Fashionable!

One of my favorite things to do on an extremely cold day is to take a walk through Chelsea Market. It is fantastic indoor place in NYC to spend some free time because there is just so much to do! From cupcakes and gelato to Sarahbeth’s and sushi,  there are such a variety of places to stop in for a quick treat or meal while doing some shopping and exploring! I couldn’t decide on a treat, so we stopped in for cupcakes Ruthy’s Bakery and some mini doughnuts at the Doughnuttery! Ruthy’s Bakery had so many beautiful cupcake, cake and pastry options that it was so hard to decide on one, but in the end I went with a Zoe cupcake from sesame street. Who doesn’t love returning to their childhood whenever they can, especially when it comes to sugary treats!?! For this particularly cold day I threw on my most comfortable 7 jeans and two of my christmas gifts, a Coco Chanel emblazoned sweatshirt and my Chanel Boy bag. I am currently obsessing over the color of this bag because it is neutral, yet a fun pop of color. I also wore Timberland black boots. I have never considered myself to be a hat person, but because of the chilling weather I put one on and now I am never looking back! I love this knit white and purple hat and the fur pom-pom is just the icing on the cake! It is made by The 2 Mad Hatter and is one of Oprah’s favorites as well! It kept me warm all day as well as acting as an adorable accessory! Functional and Fashionable!DSC_0222DSC_0250DSC_0255DSC_0233DSC_0262DSC_0265DSC_0229DSC_0244DSC_0266DSC_0269DSC_0247
