Was feeling very sporty when I got dressed this morning…and yes, my version of sporty includes heels and a pencil skirt. What can I say, I’ve never been much of an athlete!

Since moving to my new laid-back neighborhood in Brooklyn, I have found it easy to turn to to my favorite high-waisted jeans and a vintage band tee day after day. And while I do love this easy uniform and prefer it to almost anything else, I’m reinstating my goal to try and mix things up a bit more. Dressing casual is one thing, but being repetitive is not a bandwagon I’m about to hop on! I love playing with clothes way too much to give in. :)

Figured I’d brighten things up a bit with an almost spring friendly ensemble. So excited for it to be warm enough for me to lose the tights and beanie. While I do appreciate the fact that winter allows for messier, unwashed hair, I could seriously go for a little heat up in here. Proud to say that I have almost survived my first actual winter, though! Brrrr.

How cute is this little guy in purple I made friends with? Not going to lie, I was tempted to hide him in my coat and make a run for it. Oh and his dog walker was pretty easy on the eyes as well…bonus!

This skirt is kind of the perfect combo of edgy and girly…leather and studs, but in a pretty shade of powder pink! I felt it appropriate for a lovely little breakfast event with Eberjey in the West Village that I recently attended. Snapped these photos after indulging in an early morning cocktail (or three), then proceeded to drunk shop in SoHo with my girls Kim and Christina. February has been a very fun month so far! But, seriously, is it spring yet??

Just some casual weekend wear for an afternoon of hanging out, eating, and shopping in the Lower East Side. Nice to dress down a bit after a busy week of running around in high heels for NYFW!

This cold weather has me really craving an escape from the city. I could definitely go for some sunshine, a beach and a tropical cocktail right about now. Who’s with me?

Experienced my first real snowfall since moving to New York a few days ago, and I have to say it was kind of the best thing ever. Spent the blizzard indoors with friends, cocktails, and good conversations…woke up to a white winter wonderland!

Wore this jumpsuit to the Rebecca Taylor show, and snapped the photos outside Lincoln Center. Freezing cold, and the ice made walking around in heels a real challenge, but it was totally worth it. This Fashion Week has been one of my favorites so far!

A few snaps from the Rebecca Taylor F/W 2013 runway show. Loving this collection so much! The leather, the pleats, the zipper detailing…so good. And come on with that shearling jacket! I am definitely going to be needing that one.
