Keeping it short and sweet today because, well, it’s Friday (and apparently I’ve got my party pants on). Yesterday it was unexpectedly cold in the city yesterday so while I was forced to bundle up – nothing could stop me from wearing all the Spring colors at once.
As a friendly little reminder – Mother’s Day is May 10. And while flowers are always appreciated – what about a batch of homemade cookies in this sweet cake stand? Or a rose gold ring with her favorite number (or the number of kids!). Fail safe winners also include a deliciously scented candle, carry everywhere tote bag, and pretty printed scarf.
I’ve got two unofficial uniforms – one workday (printed skirt, crewneck sweater, statement earrings, heels) and one weekend (distressed jeans, slouchy button down, sunglasses, crossbody bag). The thing is.. a uniform doesn’t have to be boring.
More than anything, I’m a creature of habit. It’s why I actually enjoy things like a strict half marathon training schedule and why I’m perfectly content to wear the same worn in denim jacket day after day (you guys know the one.. here, here, and here too – sorry, not sorry). But it’s good to shake up the routine every now and then.
Hellloooo weekend! While I may not be jetting back to Barcelona (as pictured above from my visit back in 2008) any time soon, it’s supposed to be in the high 70s tomorrow (!!!) and I’ve got a brand new pair of sandals just waiting for a fresh pedicure and some of that sunshine. So I’ll take New York. Also ahead of me this weekend? A smooth 13.1 mile run. Here’s hoping all of that half marathon training has paid off. A few more things on my radar… (more…)
