I’ve been dying to go to Balthazar Restaurant in SOHO for sooooo long. Finally the hubby and I went for our anniversary. It’s so quintessentially French. If I hadn’t driven there I would have thought I was actually in Paris. It reminded us so much of places we’ve eaten in there. Loved it! If you’re in New York it’s a must!

Anyhoo… NYC outfits are so much fun to come up with. Sophisticated, trendy, edgy. Anything goes. While you can go to almost any restaurant in jeans I like to get a little more creative when I venture in. You would think that living such a short distance from the City we would go more often but it doesn’t happen so much. You can never go wrong with black leather anything. I had kind of envisioned a slip dress over the pants, but I just couldn’t find the perfect one. This tunic, however, jumped out and said “Buy me!”. I adore the blush colour and it added some lightness and femininity to the outfit. Have I ever told you how much I’m obsessed with scarves? They’re taking over the coat cupboard but I can’t help it. It’s that 3rd piece you add to your outfit for ladylike completion and there’s just so much variety and so many ways to wear them! Not sure how many more times this year I’ll get to wear my favourite Prada ankle boots. So sad!

What is it about ripped up jeans that’s so cool? I can’t stop wearing these. Not only are they cool, but they’re so comfortable! Perfect amount of stretch. I know Abercrombie & Fitch isn’t having the moment it did some time ago, but their jeans fit and they look good and they’re reasonable! The rest of the outfit? Free People on top — of course. I’m attempting to incorporate some colour into my spring wardrobe! And the adorable little booties with the fringe are by Ash. Love that brand. Cool styles and comfortable. Don’t forget your accessories people! They can really make an outfit and complete the vibe! Mirrored sunglasses in a complementary colour are a start. They always say not to overdo it on the jewellery. I get it, but don’t necessarily agree. If it works go for it! Layer your necklaces and pile on the bracelets. No worries!

Wrap – Great Option!

I guess I just haven’t been in the mood lately. Haven’t been able to motivate myself. Sometimes it’s just too much pressure to get up every day and be “blogworthy”. It’s hard feeling like you can never repeat an outfit or feeling like you have to look great every single day. Of course you have to get up and put on something but sometimes you just look in the mirror and don’t feel it. Hence, #bloggerburnout. Alas, I miss all of you and I miss posting my outfits. It took a hiatus to realise this! Therefore I will be back at you with outfits galore. I hope! Since spring hasn’t actually sprung here in the northeast this outfit embraces some springier items while still being 50 degree farenheit temperature appropriate. Over-the-knee boots can still be springy if they’re the right material and colour and are worn with maybe something floral or light. First time embracing the “cold shoulder” look. You like?
