Believe it or not, these photos were taken just over a week ago when we were still wearing winter coats here in New York! Most mornings, I make coffee at home and drink it on the couch in PJ’s with my computer in my lap and my pup cuddled up next to me, but this morning, I swung by an adorable Italian restaurant in the neighborhood that has a little walk-up coffee window. Sometimes, it’s a good idea to mix up your routine, don’t you think?

Having a great coat in your closet is always a good idea. In a pinch, I can leave the house in workout clothes, but with this tossed on top, I look totally put together! I picked up this gorgeous Helmut Lang coat this year at a sample sale (and on an unbelievable markdown!) and boy, did she earn her price tag! This is a coat I will wear for many years to come…I’m almost sad to have to pack it away for the summer time!
A solid coat is also a great neutral canvas to allow your accessories to really shine. I love to wear a combination of delicate and personal jewelry, and you can see a few of my current favorites here from Catbird (an adorable Brooklyn based jewelry store) and Vita Fede.
Yum. Hope you have a wonderful day!
