Spring weather has finally landed here in NYC, and man does it feel good! I love being able to walk around in just a few light layers instead of feeling the need to cover every inch of skin while venturing outdoors (and feeling bad for my left-out nose). While I have a few spring go-tos that have been in my closet for years (and that I love dearly), I couldn’t help but fall in love with this patterned silk bomber jacket. Not the most practical you say? Well, sure. But I find that I wear it all the time! It’s an easy fit, works well over extra layers, and it’s reversible. Oh yes. Two-for-one. Be on the lookout for a post featuring the other side. It’s on its way.
Happy Friday! Just a quick hello today, and a big congratulations to Melanie F for winning the 360 stud earrings giveaway!!! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell me where I should send your winnings! Thanks again to everybody who participated, and for your continuing support! Stay tuned for more giveaways to come :)
I hope you’re all enjoying the long weekend! I’ve been taking advantage of the extra day off by spending the weekend at Sunday River in Maine with my company’s ski trip! I grew up skiing and I absolutely love skiing with friends, so this weekend is just what I was hoping for. There hasn’t been a whole lot of sleep, but it is so definitely worth it!
This outfit is actually what I wore to work on Friday, but we left for the mountain straight from work, and I didn’t have a chance to snap these photos until last night (and we’re in the condo hallway – not the most glamorous, but it was cold, rainy, and dark outside, so you know, it was the best option at the time). I love these shoes – I got them on super sale from Lord & Taylor, and they’re actually Sperry brand which surprised me. They are super comfortable, and such a great alternative to heels when you’re looking for something a tad more on the practical side.
Also, thank you to all who participated in my giveaway! There was a great turnout and I’m so thrilled that people got excited about the earrings. I’ll clean and validate the entries this week and announce in my next post!
