okay, now this is actually my last coat of the season...i will be very depressed after i accept the fact that is finally summer. but we can get through these next few coat-less months together!

i have a few events coming up where there will be no coat in sight! the first being my trip to provence! i mean, have you seen my pinterest board!? the week will be filled with gallivanting through the lavender fields and eating our hearts out! there may be a few educational stops here and there but mostly food and instagrammable moments haha! 

and then the fun doesn't stop! i may probably be exhausted but the day following my return, i will be attending the veuve polo classic with dana and mollie! eeek so excited! i'm then giving myself one day to recover from the chaos so hopefully that will be sufficient! i literally can't wait! now i just need to pack...hmmmm

pastel mademoiselle

well it was inevitable; the days of me getting to wear a coat are slowly coming to an end. i'm clearly in denial and i refuse to accept the fact that summer is just around the corner. oh well...just a few more months until it's fall again! let the countdown begin!

until then, i will be incorporating any and all pastel colors into my outfits. this includes this oldie red valentino coat! it's fairly light so i know i can throw it over my shoulders (even when the weather is fairly nice) just to add a little something extra.

i also feel like it's been forever since i've worn jeans - my bad. don't get used to the jeans though because during the summer it is dresses and skirts all the way! stay tuned as i struggle to find outfits for this summer!

hello boho

it has been so long since i have worn something a little more on the bohemian side...at least not since peasant skirts were cool in middle school #neverlookback. recently, my eye has been going towards a more relaxed silhouette: the ones that are loose but still flattering (even after chipotle). this dress had everything that i look for (comfort, high neck, sleeves, and pockets) so i thought i would pair it with a shoe that was a little outside my comfort zone.

knee-high gladiator sandals have been popping up every spring and summer for the last few years and i have been procrastinating trying them out for myself. and granted, i'm still a little unsure about them on me. being a former dancer (and current resident on a 5th floor walk-up) my calves are slightly on the muscular side, which makes shopping for these types of shoes all the more difficult.

i love how these sandals had both the zipper and the tie so i knew i could adjust them to fit my calves - and i prefer the way the crisscross of the ties look! this season, i will make a conscious effort to step a little more outside my comfort zone...but until then, it is baby steps with this *slightly* bohemian look.

rain, rain, go away! but actually...

as much as i loved how cold it was and that i could continue to wear my jackets, the rain just had to come on in and be a buzzkill. how rude. thankfully i hadn't put away my boots for the season so i quickly grabbed my favorite over-the-knee boots and headed for an adventure in central park while my mom was in town visiting.

while she was here, we went to a couple museums and art galleries and stopped at one of my favorite restaurants, betony, for dinner. i am still dreaming about it!

i'm very excited for this weekend because i will be participating in the aids walk this sunday with my bloomingdale's family! we would love supporters and donators!! you can donate through this link here and clicking the "donate" button. hopefully this weekend we can keep the cooler weather and check the humidity and rain at the door!
