happy birthday.

to me :)

i've had a great day so far ... nice weather (the sun, yay!), lunch with one of my sisters, a madewell gift card, tulips ... a run in central park and some blockheads - and maybe some cookie cake :) - will complete the day. i'm so grateful and appreciative for all the nice bday wishes from friends and family. speaking of ... i hope all my bday *wishes* come true this year !

dinner party.

my birthday is coming up and it would be the perfect excuse to have a rooftop dinner party. all i need is nice weather. oh, and a roof deck. but if i did have both of those things, i would throw a dinner party for close friends and family. and it would look something like this ...


someday ...

p.s. this is an actual engagement party (featured on style me pretty) - fun huh?!

transitional dressing.

we haven't really had a true spring in nyc ... it's been pretty chilly (and rainy) with a few nice days here and there. dressing for this type of weather is kind of tricky and the transition from winter to spring (ish) outfits has been tougher than i thought it would be. after wearing tons of layers, tights, scarves and boots all winter, i almost forget how to put together an outfit without those elements ... these gals make it look so effortless. and cool ...
if only i had all their clothes ...

magazine monday.

i have a mild obsession with magazines. i totally hoard them. until the stacks get way too high for my tiny apt and then i have to purge them. but not without thumbing through them first. because of this, i've managed to build quite a collection of magazine tears over the years. so, i'm going to start sharing them on "magazine mondays" ! these are from my collection that is currently on my cork board ...
happy monday!
