Summer Ruffles

Is there anything better than summertime style? After months of layering all winter long, all I want to wear right now is pretty dresses - the flouncier the better - and colourful, easy slides. I have a pretty busy few months ahead, so I'm savouring every moment of downtime I get with a glass of rosé and a good book. Right now, I'm finishing up Katie Kitamura's A Separation and am eager to find my next summer read - please send any and all recommendations my way!

Flower Market Mornings

My typical weekend morning starts with a stop by my local coffee shop, and then onwards to Whole Foods (which is dangerously close to my home) to pick up breakfast and any groceries for the week ahead. On the way home, I always stop by one of the multiple floral shops lining the street near my house to pick up fresh blooms. It's definitely a bit of an extravagance, but I adore playing with new colour combinations and discovering new flowers, picking whatever is freshest and in season. Since I recently joined Equinox Yorkville, I think my weekend routine will get shaken up a bit (hello-oo barre and tabata classes), but I can't see myself giving up this weekly indulgence any time soon.

Coffee and A Kimono

Nothing beats spring weather and lazy weekend mornings spent wandering the neighbourhood with bulletproof coffee. Thank God for the robe / kimono trend that allows us all to leave the house looking dressed whilst still feeling positively cozy. Yes, these slides are a rather on-the-nose nod to the gorgeous and ultra-luxe Alberta Ferretti originals. At this price point, I figured I'd test them out and see how much wear I would get out of them if I decided to splurge. As it turns out? Quite a bit (as in, I've quite literally worn them every day since the weather got warmer). Stay tuned for these babies coming to this space soon.

A Simple, Spring Outfit

Dressing for spring isn't always easy, especially when the weather is completely unpredictable, but packing for spring is downright impossible. I recently got back from a weekend in New York, where I attended Bridal Fashion Week and saw magical presentations from Elie Saab, Oscar de la Renta, Marchesa & more. I had outfit planned a week in advance, but when the plane touched down and it poured morning till night, my regular uniform of jeans, statement blouse and grey topper reappeared far more often than initially planned.

Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

Nothing brightens up a dreary early spring day like a pop of sunshine yellow. I'm currently outfit planning for a last minute work trip to New York at the end of this week, and I think this colourful topper has to come with me, if only to stand out from the sea of NYC black. I haven't been since last year, so if anyone has any recommendations for eating/drinking/shopping/exercising, please let me know! I'm only in town for four days, but I want to cram in as much as possible.
