Once again, New York weather cannot make up it’s mind.  My carefully packed Moncler coat has now come out for an encore performance given the 30 degree drop from last week and the current blizzard hitting Manhattan. I have to admit, it’s a bit deflating when my new espadrilles have to be put back in their box.

Although dark colors always accompany cold weather for me, a bright pop of color is always a pick me up.  I had been waiting for literally years for the perfect Chanel red flap.  As may Chanel lovers know, red is a popular color and not always available each season. When I laid eyes on this beauty, it was love at first sight.  The color is amazing and so happy.  I will definitely wear this year round but it’s the perfect cure for Winter blues.

I have been obsessed recently with adding a pair of tuxedo denim to my collection.  My typical purchases, as per my previous posts are classic, safe and sometimes, let’s be honest, boring.  The conversation in my head goes something like this: “OMG how cute are theses! The stripe is so different. Wait, can I wear these in a year’s time?  Are they to trendy? Do I want to spend $300 on a pair of non-classic denim?”  And round and round we go.

The fact of the matter is, fashion should be fun.  Yes you want the bulk of your wardrobe to be timeless but the pieces with personality that make your heart sing are the reason getting dressed is fun.  Are these overstepping my line of comfort-no, and honestly they are classic, but something feels special when I slip these on vs. my stock standard pair of dark wash (fill in designer here).

When planning our 5 year anniversary, my husband and I unanimously agreed it was back to Anguilla we go. We discovered this secluded island in 2012 on our honeymoon and visited again in 2015.  The people, food and of course the surroundings make this spot super relaxing and definitely an escape from NYC.

I thought I’d share a few pics to start as I’ll be doing a part 2 on the food and where go on the island.  We are already planning our next trip!
