Finally – fun in the sun!

After a long NY winter where the Polar Vortex introduced itself, it was a very welcome change to finally be enjoying a weekend outside on a deck with some sun. No puffer jackets required!!!!

This weekend look was built around my favourite pants at the moment, the AG Stilts.
I am obsessed with them. They are flattering, comfortable – and I want them in every colour.

Leather & Lace

Taking a bit of a walk on the dark side in all black leather and lace…
All black does not need to be goth, and is prefect for the glorious winter day outside.

Testing out this cute faux leather skirt before I invest in a real one.
Thoughts?

I love the leather details on this winter coat!

From Paris with LOVE

Firstly, apologies for the long time between updates. It has been far too long!
It has been a crazy few months and I have not been able to spend time on blogging.
It’s a new year however, and it comes with new updates for the blog!

As a start 2014 I wanted to share my Parisian adventure with you all.
I was fortunate enough to visit late last year.

Paris is one of my favourite cities in the world.
Spring, summer, autumn, winter – it really doesn’t matter.

Romance NYC Style

Romance is not dead – nor should it be.
Just take a look around Central Park. The couple on a picnic, the first date happening at the Boat House, the husband rowing his wife under the Bow Bridge.

Diane von Furstenberg coral creation adds its own romantic touch to this city escape.
The cut, colour, flowing fabric, the detail of the subtle pleating.

Wanted Wednesday

So here we are – Wanted Wednesday #2.

There may have been some controversy over WW #1 – specifically around the segment launching with a cuff and not my poison. Namely, shoes.
Fear not my friends – for this weeks wanted item is SHOES!

Christian Louboutin perfection – the Pigalle Spikes in Grenadine.
Pink, spiked and a 12cm (approx. 5 inch) heel.

Florals and corals

Summertime should not preclude you from wearing black.
Au contraire – you just need to make it feel more summery with some florals, or a splash of colour!

My favourite colour this season has to be anything in the coral family. I am finding myself drawn to anything coral spotted on the rack.
So pretty and feminine.

So here is my version of a summertime “black” outfit.

Love this Alex Perry top with a beautiful big floral pattern, an interesting vest-like shape at the top and flattering pleats.

Loving the hair donut!!
So quick, easy and elegant.

Short Shorts

Forget the LBD (ok jokes) – but, what about the LITTLE BLACK SHORTS?

I love them in spring, I love them in summer.
I love them casual, i love them dressy.
I love them on The Hart Of Dixie and the resulting disruption they cause to the town of Bluebell.

This past Sunday, I channeled my inner Zoe Hart and took my favourite little black shorts out to Brooklyn.
Teamed up with a summery colour blocked tank – and my new Manolo Blahniks (their first excursion!!)

Shorts – Loft (similar here)
Pumps – Manolo Blahnik Kandita-Mod Sandal

While some perceive them to be casual, I disagree and believe you can make the little black short a dressy statement.

Bring out the legs for summer.
