Styling for Spring

I don’t know about you, but I am OVER this weather.  Being my first winter in New York, I feel like I’ve been pretty positive the last few months, but I’ve officially hit my threshold.

In order to lighten up my mood, I’ve decided to do some shopping for spring!  My favorite trend this year (and a reoccurring one) is Pastels.  The reason I love it, is because it’s a great way to transition your winter wardrobe into spring (and it also reminds me of Easter!)

Here are a few of my favorite spring pieces:

Travel Tuesday: New York City for the Holidays

It’s no secret that I think New York is one of the most amazing cities in the world.  I have had aspirations of living there since I was little (and hopefully I will soon enough) so of course I jumped at a last minute trip there this past weekend.

It’s bittersweet because on the way there, you see so much devastation from Sandy (and my friends volunteered with Relief efforts on Sunday because they’re amazing).  But I have so much going on between now and the end of the year so I wanted to get one last trip in to see some friends, and of course the magical city at this time of year.  I have had the most incredible year and I am so very blessed and this trip just reminded me of that so much.

I went to brunches with new friends and old friends, went out to some new (to me at least) bars and clubs, and walked several miles on Sunday exploring all of the Holiday decor, and soaking up one of the most beautiful days left of the year.  Here’s a look at some of the highlights:

Rockefeller Center Ice Skating, the Plaza hotel, Macy’s “Believe” and the Empire State Building on my walk around town.

Times Square at night, Macy’s Michael Kors Shoes in the window, The Grey Dog, an Fendi with festive and sparkly lights!

Lunch at Sarabeth’s with John and Amretha (some of my oldest friends) 🙂 Dinner at The Mulberry Project, Los Caminos, Flowers for Jaime for hosting me (Who says you have to have guys to buy flowers??) and Mike and I on the train ride back to DC after a great weekend!
