Seasons Greetings

Hi Friends!!! It's been forever + 1 day, I know. I apologize for my absence but wanted to sent you all tons of holiday hugs and kisses. I hope your New Year will be prosperous, fulfilling and joyous.

I am planning to revamp the site in the months to come so please bare with me. In the meantime, I am heavily consumed with Instagram and Facebook so be sure to follow me there. 

Mad love,

Spring Kicks

From top left: 
Loeffler Randall Skye Gladiator Sandals
Alexander Wang Jade Flat Sandals
Zara Braided Platform Sandals
Jenni Kayne Lattice d'Orsay Flats
Loeffler Randall Rain Boots
Mm6 Perforated Leather high-top Trainers
ASOS x Antipodium Cork Loafers

I have my eye on simple clean styles this season. I'm also toying with the notion of giving up heels and only wearing flats or platforms. Heels just aren't practical for me. I'm almost 6 feet tall, I live in NYC and I take public transportation everywhere and I'm super clumsy... it's just too dangerous. The Sex and City lifestyle is a false representation of a New Yorker and I'm here to bring that fake ass myth to an end. New York women don't go running around in no damn 6 inch Manolo Blahnik!! There, I said it! You could break your neck running around these uneven streets. I'm sorry, I digress... 

What do you think? Are heels practical for going up and down the subway stairs and dodging pot holes? 
What styles are you most looking forward to come spring?

Meet Wilhelmina

jacket: Uniqlo | pants: Street Vendor | sneakers: Converse x Comme des Garcons | bag: Baggu 
hat: Wigwam | sunnies: Ray-Ban

Are you following me on Instagram? If you are then you've already met the newest addition to my family... my 10 week old amazingly cute frenchie Wilhelmina Betty Nakamura (who also has an IG page, check it out!). This weekend my husband and I went out to run some errands and bought Willie along for the ride. She's only 6 pounds so it's been a struggle finding a bag that she could fit in without getting lost, the baggu is the prefect size! At least for this week...

Enjoy the rest of your week! xo

Daisy Dukes

sweater: Joe Fresh | shorts: Vintage Levi's | coat: Engineered Garments | boots: Vasque
hat: Bloomingdales | sunnies: Ray Ban

These pictures are from Nemo... the last snow storm NYC had a few weeks ago. The sky was so blue and crystal clear and the sun was shining so bright that all I wanted to do was go out and enjoy it the day. Surprisingly, it wasn't too cold. I'm in serious summer clothes mode already. These sweaters are making me itchy,  LOL. A few months of rain and gloom to look forward to... maybe I'll look into some badass rain galoshes to cheer me up.

Street Etiquette

I'm so inspired by humble, genuine, freakishly brilliant people. Joshua and Travis of Street Etiquette are the quintessential example of this. I found this video super uplifting so I thought I would share.  

"You have to be yourself and stand by what you know" great advise to end the week.

Have a wonderful weekend! xo

Wicker Basket

shirt: T by Alexander Wang | fleece: Batten | pants: J. Crew | socks: White Mountaineering 
boots: No. 6 | coat: All Saints | bag: Vintage | hat: Wigwam | lips: Russian Red

Here's my outfit from the second day of the Independent Bloggers Conference. It's been bitter cold in NYC and all I can think of was warmth and comfort. I know its not as fabulous as it could've been but I almost always follow my gut when getting dress. If I'm not comfortable what good am I to myself or anyone else? The second day of the conference was super informative and laid back. I had tons of time to connect with beautiful bloggers from Brooklyn to Montreal. A successful conference for sure!

boots: LL Bean | hat: Kangol | gloves: Hero | sunnies: Ray-Ban

New York was hit with a blizzard yesterday... can't think of a better reason to play in the snow.  I'm more of a lay on the beach type girl but the sun was shining and the temperature was actually very mild. I hope all of you and yours survived the storm and enjoyed it which ever you know best.
