Spring 2013 is about being bold. Color still reigns, but there are other bold choices that are trending in 2013. Oversized clutches, long trousers in a multitude of colors and exaggerated bubble skirts are definitely my faves. As I’ve said in the past, it’s a free for all. So enjoy who you are and let go. xoxo

Colored trousers are a chic alternative to the colored jeans of the last few seasons.
Love this whole look. Bold and carefree.
There’s something about yellow that screams Spring!!
My husband and I have finally come to terms with the fact that a small remodel is a must for our living environment. Not that we don’t live comfortably, but making our space a bit more functional and maximizing our little nest will not only give us more elbow room, but entertaining friends and family will be so much more fun. As we embark on our journey I’ll document from time to time our progress. Until then I came across a great apartment, that I don’t know who it belongs too, and my all time favorite brooklyn brownstone, Jenna Lyons former residence. Both spaces have the ease, comfort and creative elements that speak to my modern, rustic, industrial aesthetic. Can’t wait to begin our project! Happy Monday! xoxo
Love, Love black walls.
A great example of small but cool.
Love the dark floors with the crisp white walls and endless amount of books.
The best nook.
Fashion Friday Inspiration…Fashion stylist Giorgia Tordini.
Gwyneth Paltrow has a new cookbook coming out, It’s All Good. Not everyone I talk with is a huge fan of Gwyneth and her cookbooks. I personally love her and her books. She has some “hang ups” about food and lifestyle choices that critics, media and the public feel a need to comment on, constantly, but honestly who lives “hang up” free? She’s as real and honest as she chooses to be and I for one can admire her for that. In reality we’re all doing the best we can, it’s just, good or bad, she chooses to do it in the public eye. Regardless of what you may think of Gwyneth, she’s a capable woman and a loving mom and who can fault her for that. You go Gwyneth, you do your thing! xoxo
Avocado Toast…My kind of recipe.
I’m really loving long vertical totes at the moment. I haven’t always been a fan, as long bags tend to make it difficult to find keys, phones and lip balms. The ease of getting in and out of a bag is by far my first check off the list, but I’m finding my self taking a double look at these longer beauties.
There’s something chic about a bag tucked under the arm and falling along side the body. It’s out of the way and doesn’t shout, “look at me.” Celine makes a beautiful, classic cabas in soft buttery leather and best of all it comes in a rainbow of colors. So if you’re feeling an update, take a look on the long side. xoxo
The horizontal version is always amazing.
I’d love the furry friend!
We’re almost out of wet, sloppy, cold weather. Us on the west coast are finally feeling Spring on the horizon, but east coasters are still wringing out their boots. Although we’re almost finished with the slush, it’s a great time of year to take advantage of the winter sales. From boots to coats, a 50% slash is worth the storing discomfort.
Every year we spend a bit of time in Canada and so often I’m tempted to buy snow boots each time we go up. So in my many hours of online browsing I found that there are some amazing sales on merchandise that will be making their way up north.
My favorite has to be Sorel snow boots. Not only are they completely functional in the job they promise, but the unlimited styles and colors make them cute and fashionable. I know that Sorel’s won’t be the most worn here at the beach, but come December I’ll be ready for the -3 of Whistler. xoxo
My personal fave and purchase.
Still love my Hunter rain boots for just about anything.
