I think I'd go with a jacket and skirt actually ... tons of opportunity to wear them as separates, too!
It's freezing right now in New York, so it's making me sad to go through these magazines and look at all the fun pretty spring clothes ... I don't even want to touch the April issues yet until it gets warmer, for fear that it'll just depress me. Let's ease ourselves into spring, shall we?
A Forever 21 dress like this one was featured in a great article where they made 90 days of outfits out of 26 pieces ... it was genius!

These loafers are the epitome of laid back preppy ... I think I may need a pair.

This bib necklace is such a statement piece. I'd wear it with a simple black dress.

This tweed jacket is so darn ladylike. Makes me want to mix it up with a simple tee, olive cargo pants, and some wedges.

I am so drawn to this watch and I can't quite figure out why ... it's gotta be the green.

I think this might be the perfect purple-y red shade of nail polish. With the perfect name.

The rust orange in this flower print blouse is really cheerful.

The shape of this dress is great ... flatters curves and cinches in at the waist. Not to mention the cool color!

Twitter user @ndrew10 reached out to me recently and asked me if I could recommend places to go shopping on an upcoming visit to NYC.
So, I decided it'd make a great post, first for the gents -- I'll do another one soon for the ladies -- of some of my favorite places to go shopping in the city.
A really cool store for basic pieces, and the quality is very good for the price.
The mens version of my favorite store ... in an old bar. Could not be cooler.
Racks and racks of vintage clothing, organized by decade.
Behind my favorite vintage costume jewelry store, there's a hidden away spot for vintage home goods.
Locations all over the city with great vintage finds, and you can shop for a good cause.
You can literally find anything and everything in this Asian-import market.
Hope this helps!

When I was in San Francisco for my honeymoon last week, I was lucky enough to stumble upon this amazing jewelry store in the Washington Square neighborhood of San Francisco. All of the pieces are made by local artists (which I love), and they have some of the most beautiful jewelry I've ever seen.
After curbing my temptation to buy every single item in the store, I finally chose these earrings --

The stone is this amazing gray, with speckles of black, and the detailing on the gold is just so unique. If you're ever in San Fran, definitely pay them a visit!

This morning, when I was all out of sorts -- from both the time change and still trying to get back on East coast time after our honeymoon -- at least I was awake at a decent enough hour to take advantage of Target's re-issue of 34 dresses from previous designer collab collections :)
Here's what I scooped up --
And of course the Thakoon printed tie-waist dress
