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.

Another casual workday for the frigid cold that we had.  I've got Friday off to spend my birthday weekend with my excited!!  Happy, happy Friday all!


Winter Neutrals

Outfit details: Ann Taylor chambray top (similar here and here), Banana Republic five pocket leggings (similar here), Saks boots (similar here and here), J Crew sweater (similar here), belt and Edie bag, Hermes bangle, Baublebar and Chanel necklaces

The bitter New England cold has graced us with its presence for the past few days which always makes me more apt to dress in comfies.  Luckily my work is relatively casual and while I tend to dress up more than most that I work with, it is days like this that I am thankful for the flexibility.  On this particular cold day, I wore my new Saks motorcycle boots with black trousers, a chambray top and a cashmere cardigan.  I think mother nature is giving us a bit of relief for the weekend which I am thankful for.  I hope you are staying cozy and warm!



Outfit details: Theory cardigan (similar here and here), Equipment blouse (similar here), J Crew pencil skirt (similar here), Veronique Branquinho boots, Celine bag, Hermes scarf, Chanel necklace

Another day, another outfit.  This day, I was all in shades of grey. 

I also wore this super fun and sparkly wraparound bracelet (it kind of looks like a slinky when it's off) that was a fab Christmas gift.


Weekend Spoils (Shoes, shoes and more shoes)

This weekend I stopped into Saks and did a lap around the shoes on sale.  As luck would have it, there were a few pairs in my size at 40% off the sale price. 

 I got a pair of grey motorcycle boots that were Saks' own brand.  They'll be perfect for bopping around town on the weekends with leggings or skinny jeans. 

These pink and black Prada pumps are my fave.  I just love the pink toe and heel .

There have been several times getting dressed recently where I wished for a pair of navy shoes.  I have one pair but they are totally impractical and I needed something more versatile.  These navy suede Prada pumps fit the bill.

I think this is the first time I can remember walking away with each pair such a practical heel height.  These are certainly not my normal 4-5 inchers.  I think my feet will thank me!
