green anorak + leather hat

Layering has been key lately in the yo-yoing NYC weather.  Try pairing easy pieces in similar fabrications and colors to make a style statement out of causal wear.

A leather cap and cross body bag edge the look up nicely.

If you don’t have a pair of these slimmer cut boyfriend jeans yet, add them to your shopping list.  They make for a cool, casual look with heels and are much more flattering than the pair you already own.

crop tee & accordion pleats

If you’ve been following on Instagram, then you know I’ve spent the last few days out west in San Francisco and Napa Valley, taking in the scene and drinking my weight in wine (not pictured).  If you’ve never had the pleasure of visiting San Francisco, add this must-see city to your bucket list immediately.  I wore this look for a little thrift shopping around the Mission District and a picnic in Dolores Park.  It was a picture perfect last day in a truly magical city.

[line love] cb2 handwoven chairs

ixtapa-yellow-mint-lounge-chair-1

acapulco-black-blue-lounge-chair

figueira-swing-chair

rex-chartreuse-arm-chair-2

In New York outdoor space is limited, especially that of the private nature.  So when I saw these delightful handwoven “outdoor” pieces I immediately began mentally rearranging my apartment furniture to accommodate one. Each chair’s retro silhouette is balanced by bold color, making for a perfect little package.  Tuck one into a corner of your living room or place a set around your dining table for a nod to relaxed, laid-back living.

Palm prints are a favorite of mine when it comes to home decor, so I was a complete sucker for these banana leaf printed pants.   Step up your menswear-inspired separates for spring in nostalgic palm prints and pinky hues.

A bit of history…the original Martinique wallpaper, made famous by the Beverly Hills Hotel, has been in production since the 40′s and still available today.  It’s perfect for dining and powder rooms!

[on our radar] cut-out ankle boots

As much as we love the feeling of warm sunshine on our toesies (arguably the best part of spring/summer), these skin-baring boots are making us reconsider our position.  With weather appropriate cut-outs and kick-ass buckle embellishment, they’re an edgy update that wears well with denim cut-offs and flowy dresses alike.
