Pink Pop

Outfit details: Ann Taylor sweater and long sleeve t-shirt, J Crew pencil skirt, Stuart Weitzman boots (similar here), Miu Miu bag, Chanel pin, Hermes bangle and scarf, YSL rouge pur (#49 tropical pink) lipstick

It was rainy and gross today; the kind of day that puts me in a funk.  But I somehow managed to fight the urge to throw on leggings and a black sweater dress instead opting for this fab and cozy Ann Taylor sweater that my sis gave me for Christmas with a bright pink J. Crew pencil skirt.  But the pink that I really love is this bright pink YSL lipstick that I hemmed and hawed over buying.  I initially thought I would like it in the summer when I had a bit of a tan but I'm finding that I like how it just brightens up a dreary winter's day.

Pixies and Capes

Outfit details: DKNY cape dress (sequin version here), J. Crew cashmere turtleneck, pixie pant and necklace, Miu Miu bag, Hermes scarf and bracelet, Prada shoes

This outfit has two of my new favorite things; the J. Crew pixie pant and the DKNY cape dress.  The pixie pant is the perfect cross between a legging and a trouser.  It's super comfortable, more substantial than a legging and quite chic.  The DKNY cape dress is something I had tried on months ago at the DKNY store in SoHo but I left it behind.  On this past weekend's jaunt to NYC, it was on sale at Bloomingdales and I, my friend and my sis all bought it.  Today since it was quite cold, I wore it over a J. Crew cashmere turtleneck but when it's warmer, it needs nothing but a cami underneath.  Also it looks great belted so I'm sure you'll see it again very soon!

Navy

 Outfit details: Milly jacket (similar here), J Crew top (similar here or this one is darling), Ann Taylor trousers (similar here), Prada pumps (similar here), Celine bag, Hermes scarf

This was an easy Monday's outfit of all navy.  Navy Milly jacket, navy dotted J Crew top and Ann Taylor trousers.  It all paired just perfectly with my new navy Prada pumps bought at Saks for 40% off of the already low sale price!

Pink/Black

Outfit details: Equipment blouse, Ann Taylor trousers (similar here), Kate Spade jacket (similar here), Prada shoes, J Crew Edie bag, Chanel pin, Baublebar necklace

I put my new fave Prada shoes to use last week in a perfect pairing with a hot pink Equipment blouse, Kate Spade jacket, Ann Taylor trousers and J Crew bag.  These shoes are reminiscent of the 80s to me.  I can totally picture the pink, black and button detail circa 1987 with a bold-shouldered/primary-colored power suit, can't you?

Weekend Tidbits - Birthday in NYC

The cozy lobby of the Greenwich Hotel where we had a fabulous lunch at Locanda Verde (and had a Christy Turlington sighting). 

A pile of birthday loot during pre-dinner drinks.

The perfect gift from my sis and girlfiriends; super fab Jonathan Adler be-studded frame and vases.

A gorgeous maltese cross brooch which paired perfectly with my Chanel and Loren Bell necklaces (the Loren Bell necklace came from Elisha's shop). 

Images from the walls of the Monkey Bar where we had drinks.

My melt in your mouth appetizer of cold smoked Tasmanian trout at Gotham Bar and Grill.

Gotham's signature appetizer of tuna tartare.

Gotham chocolate cake for dessert.

My gorgeous birthday vases put to immediate use.
