Confession. I think some of the sparkly sunshine we’ve been enjoying (until today!) got to me. This look, my mood. So it was easy to go for the gold in planning this post. All together, this gilded outfit makes quite the statement. If it’s too much for you (aw, c’mon), why not try adding one pop of glitter to a more toned down look? I promise it will make you smile. And it works wonders on others, too.
Can I just say that this jacket is EVERYTHING? I can’t claim dibs on spotting it first though. Karima Hunter, the uber stylish voice behind A Note on Style, did in this post. Of course, I clicked right through and pretty much had to have it. You may remember that I recently went on a 40-day NO SHOPPING hiatus but am now back in wardrobe refresh mode, albeit with a stricter focus. So anything I’m buying from here on out has to really earn its place in my closet, and this reversible, 2-in-1 jacket sits atop the list.
Well, it was 80 degrees here in JC on Saturday, and then (surprise! not!!) temps plunged on Sunday. High (ha ha) 30s, rainy, blustery, and basically whaaaaat? The calendar is saying Spring, but our climate is not. I don’t know about you, but it’s wreaking havoc on my Spring wardrobe plans. I have not even gotten my 1st pedicure of the season! This week!! And hopefully that’s not wishful thinking. But in the meantime, we managed to squeeze in a shoot that features some of my favorite Spring things.
OK, hopefully this pic hasn’t completely scared you off! But this Hanacure Mask is the K-Beauty treatment that has basically broken the internet. And for good reason. It’s expensive. It’s exquisitely packaged. It’s easy to do. It feels intensely, amazingly weird. It can give your husband a heart attack (especially if he’s photographing you). It’s really like nothing else I’ve ever experienced. And…I want to do it again!
So far, Spring has been cruel up here in the JC/NYC area. Warm one day, then grey and cold and blustery the next. Not to mention snow. It’s making it pretty hard to switch your wardrobe from Fall/Winter to Spring/Summer. I’ve got everything out of storage and in our spare bedroom, but every time I think about unpacking my bright colors, pompoms and sandals, Little Miss Climate Change thinks otherwise. In that spirit, my uber-talented friend Kristin and I seized a sunny, warmish day to shoot this post. The takeaway? While the weather is playing tricks on us, we can still trick out our Spring wardrobe. The best combo? A pretty floral dress, from mini to maxi, leather jacket and boots — from OTK to booties. It’s a fashion equation I plan to put to good use in the changeable weeks ahead.
It may be Spring, but we just had another snowstorm and kids are playing in the park in snowsuits! Oh April, why so cruel? We want to pack away those turtlenecks and down jackets and get pedicures and wear florals, but you are killing our fashion agenda! So if I can’t beat you, I will join you. In the best coat, possibly ever. I LOVEV LOVEV LOVE this coat and wish it were mine. See more below! Seriously, it’s a compliment magnet, from fashion-wise women, which is the most fun.
