Pump Me Up

Agnes Baddoo sent me the link to shoe designer Maryam Nassir Zadeh’s site and said these Roberta pumps are very, very me. She’s right.

Beach Days Ahead

British Vogue

It’s early April and I’m already yearning for summer. Although we spent just one day in Malibu, I’ve got beach on the brain and am counting the days until we go up to the Vineyard.

While We’re Young

While We're Young

One of the benefits of being self employed is, when it’s grey and dreary, I can just go to the movies. I saw While We’re Young yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Naomi Watts is my new favorite actress.

Opening on Friday, The Clouds of Sils Maria, which got great reviews.

My Favorite Flares

Frame denim

These are the jeans that I’m wearing in the previous post. Shortened to above the ankle and narrowed slightly, the Frame Denim Francoise is my favorite flare. The shorter length, inspired by the Louis Vuitton pair, feels more modern. Floor-grazing is not for me.

 I bought black, mid- blue, and white. Both my normal size and a size smaller fit, depends on how you like them.

Platforms

Celine Perfect weather to break out the Céline platforms—they’re great for running around. When I bought them last fall I’d wanted burgundy but, couldn’t find my size. The olive-y tan is better for spring.

I’m always looking for ways to pull back my long hair. A fan of both a kerchief and a soft headband, these are great options.

Easter

16pc9k

I am the Easter bunny in my house. Filling baskets (or rather 1 basket, and 1 box sent to college) is a tradition that I enjoy. The crocuses and snowdrops are finally up promising a beautiful spring. Easter makes me feel hopeful and that anything is possible and, for that, I am grateful.

Happy Easter!

Brown-Baggin’ It

WSJ. Magazine

When I realized how much I love my black hobo, I ordered one in beige. While at Céline, I spied the same bag in saddle and bought it, too. It’s still wrapped up, but, after seeing this story in today’s WSJ. magazine, I’m going to take it out for a spin. Caramel-hued leather is the handbag color for spring.

Bags above by Céline and Valentino.

Spring Cleaning

Although I’ve upped the mileage on my daily walk/run, I still feel like I’m recovering from months of hibernation. My friend Liete mentioned that she’s doing a BluePrint cleanse and, considering that I already guzzle their kale drinks, I’m seriously thinking about joining her.

The Perfect Spring Tote

Agnes BaddooHandbag designer Agnes Baddoo has personal style in spades and I’m always inspired by what she puts together. So, it’s no surprise that my dream spring carryall is from her eponymous line. The white is super chic.

Once again, London is a bit ahead of New York with the spring weather. This pic that @nataporter posted makes me downright jealous.

Super Stripes

 

Talk about the ultimate layering piece—under a navy blazer, now, and on it’s own with denim shorts this summer—perfection. I’d double up with a white tank underneath.

The Bangles

Georg Jensen When I was growing up, we had a place on St. Croix. Back then, my sisters and I all wore a hook bracelet that was made exclusively on the island. So, you can imagine my delight when I passed the Georg Jensen shop on Madison last week and there, in the window, was a version of our Caribbean bangle.

I snapped the below pic and sent it to my sister (the professor) and she bought one. I love the rose gold, but not sure I want diamonds.  I have been craving silver, lately…

On My Mind

Congratulations, Natalie!

Natalie Massenet

The merger of Net-a-porter and YOOX will create the “world’s biggest luxury fashion store”—truly, the future of online fashion retail. I could not be prouder of my friend Natalie Massenet, founder of Nap (and matchmaker to me and my husband).
