Last week was glorious. It FINALLY feels like Spring. A few days even felt like Summer.
One of my favorite things about Spring is reaching for a lightweight trench coat. Whether paired with a sheath dress for work or a cocktail dress for evening outings, this is one item I wear constantly throughout the Spring. A trench coat always makes me feel poised and stylish. This week was finally warm enough to run out the door in a trench coat. A trench is a quick way to look at once effortless, but pulled together. Being able to ditch the heavy coat and throw on a trench is always a joyous moment. My only requisite is that the waist must be cinched.

Now that the days are warmer, I have turned my attention to my Spring wardrobe. I'm inspired to bring color into my wardrobe. Dove grey along with dusty blue, neutral shades of cream, blush and beige are colors that I will incorporate into my wardrobe. Although, I could live in my white and ivory silk shirts. There's something sculptural and clean about white paired with black that I gravitate toward. My silk shirts are quickly becoming a signature look.
In spite of my busy schedule, I make it a point to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. The sun is mood improving. Last week I enjoyed catching up with friends and former colleagues over lunch al fresco. We all shared a good laugh over how stressful and intense the weeks leading up to my trip were. I'm a firm believer that laughter is contagious and a genuine smile the best accessory. Spring is made for meeting up with friends in Bryant Park; watching, cheering and maybe even squeezing in a Petanque game.
Spring is being able to sleep with the windows open. Don't you just sleep better with fresh air? Although, something tells me that I won't be able to sleep tonight. Met Season kicks off tomorrow with Met Ball and the opening of the Met Costume Institutes's exhibition "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty." After months of anticipation it's finally here. Something tells me this is going to be another good week. Demain.
