Sunny side up…

February 26, 2019

Without the constant magic and joy that NYFW provides Manhattan, the city reverts to its default for mid-February — a bleak, gray winter. To escape the seemingly endless gloom and cold winds, I recently hopped on a plane to visit some of my favorite spots in Miami and inject some sunshine back into my daily routine. Not only was this trip filled with blooming plants and fresh air, but I also took full advantage of the humidity and warmer temperatures by pulling out some of my favorite seasonal transition garments. When it’s too warm for sweaters but not quite time for mini skirts, I tend to find myself wearing long, breezy ensembles that I can feel confident in – despite unpredictable weather.

It’s Saturday morning and you’re window shopping before late brunch. As you hop from boutique to boutique with no real intent to make a purchase, you see it. There it is, glimmering in an imaginary celestial spotlight: the perfect staple piece.

You don’t want to be caught swishing down the sidewalk in a woolΒ palazzo during the sun’s hot cameo on a rainy Tuesday.

Well Spotted…

When it comes to closet staples, I’m a big believer in a few things: high-waisted denim, a little bit of sequin and sparkle, statement jackets, and of course – animal print. A bit less traditional than the “you need a beige trench coat in your closet” mantra, but trust me – these are just as useful, if not more so. I mention these particular items because of the versatility factor. Versatility is a quality that I look for when shopping, because it means that I’m able to get the most for my money and style the items in multiple ways, for different kinds of occasions and seasons. They’re timeless pieces that stay relevant despite ever-changing trends. They’re styles that I feel comfortable investing in for the long run. And one of my most recent animal print purchases from Alice + Olivia has my heart purring.
