Happy Anniversary

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse this year. Amazing, amazing, amazing! The Weehawken, New Jersey location has a gorgeous view of the New York City skyline that is so sparkly and beautiful at night. Sometimes it’s better not to cross the river and it makes for a great photo location! In one pic you’ll actually see a reflection of my husband, though he tried to avoid that happening. Of course every time I go someplace cool it rains. I think there’s a cloud that follows me when I leave town. Though once again I’m in all black, I took a break from my usual skinnies and tried out these track pants that have a sheer, shimmery overlay. They’re chic, comfortable and so of-the-moment. I paired them with a faux leather sleeveless top with a sheer back and let some skin show through. A departure from the norm for me! The outfit is from my favourite Nordstrom Savvy department of course. I can’t get enough and everyone there is so nice and helpful. Enjoy the scenery!

Cherry Blossoms

It’s that time of year. Everything is in bloom. I have to admit — it’s pretty. My allergies, however, not so pretty. I’ll try to admire the flora from afar. Per usual I paired everything with black. Northeastern girl — can’t help it even in spring. Black, black, black. I even consciously tell myself not to buy black when I go to the store, but I can’t help it! It’s classy and goes with everything and there’s just so much of it! I dug this blazer out of my closet after quite a long time. Unlike the usual suspect it’s soft and flowy and shiny. My new watch and my Chuck Chucks bracelet went perfectly with my new blouse. Actually, my velvet sunglasses went too. Go me! It’s almost warm enough that I’ll have to give up my booties soon so I have to get every single use out of them that I can. I so miss them in summer. I was in quite the Marc by Marc Jacobs mood today. You’ll see.

A Touch of Festival

All the chatter about Coachella inspired me to bring out this amazing ASTR fringed kimono. I’ve been seeing the kimono paired with jean shorts and tank tops but I decided to dress it up a little more than that for a Saturday night out. It’s also really not shorts weather in the Northeast and I am still a very ghostly white shade! I paired my off white, floral fringed version with all black so that the detail really popped. ASTR is another one of the brands you can find in the Nordstrom Savvy department which we all know is like my home away from home. It’s so much fun to get trendy pieces for reasonable prices and there are so many new things there every time you visit!

I’ve decided that the pajama dressing fad is very cool. You put on a silky, totally comfortable outfit with nice shoes and some fun accessories and you’re dressed. Easy, breezy, done. I found this outfit on super sale and had to have it. I’ve become a huge fan of the brand WAYF since I first saw it in the Nordstrom Savvy department. Their pieces are always current, fun and well made. More often than not, the piece that catches my eye on a walk through is by them. Since it’s still on the chilly side here and I haven’t yet dug out my open toe shoes, I paired this digital print outfit with my favourite cutout booties. I went with springy, floral jewellery in complementary colours and yet another amazing pair of Italia Independent mirrored sunglasses. Enjoy!
