Coco seaside

shoulder full B

When I lived back in NC, I always looked forward to our Summer’s at Wrightsville Beach.  It’s a small beach compared to Bondi or Manly, but has always been my favorite as I grew up going.  This year was our first time back since moving to NYC from Sydney and it did not disappoint.

Still living off my Paris love affair, I decided to bring Coco into the beachside mix to elevate my cutoffs and off the shoulder top.  I think Parisians would approve 🙂

It’s no secret, I am a stripe lover and there is nothing better than a good mix of two pieces in that family.  The thin mixed with the wide, the navy against the black-all of differences helped elevate an otherwise basic jacket and tee. The tee I’ve had for a bit, but I added the boucle Marant a few weeks ago as an investment piece I knew would work on every level.  The fact that it combined, black and white, stripes and the nubbiness of the boucle-it was a no-brainer!

Sundays

sundays full

Hands down, Sunday’s are my favorite day of the week and this one past, although chilly, was super relaxing. Totally over the snow, I decided my gray direction needed a pop of color. Brunch, followed by a stroll through the Winter wonderland that was Central Park ended with yummy nibbles and the Oscars.

*Poppy*

poppy BB

With Valentine’s Day approaching, I usually hate being a cliche and wearing red or pink, unless it’s a small pop of the color.  All that goes out the window when I spot anything in one of my favorite colors: Poppy red.  I typically gravitate towards neutrals in sweaters, but the color just makes you want to smile, even if you’re having a terrible day.  I love the billowy sleeve on this cropped sweater and the cozy knit is perfect for the lingering snow we still seem to be getting in NYC.
