Happy Spring

It is officially the 1st day of Spring!!! Even though it doesn’t feel like it OR look like it (we still have snow on the ground) SPRING is here and here to stay. How do I know, because the weather man said so lol ….and because of The Old Farmer’s Almanac . Founded in 1792 it is still used til this day and its pretty accurate.

So what does one wear when the calendar says Spring, but it doesn’t feel like it? Shed clothing slowly. Warm temperatures during the day can turn into cold temperatures at night. You never want to be under dressed nor overdressed. It is safe to put the turtlenecks away and ok to wear mock necks. Another great way to adjust to the weather and still look fashionable is to change your jewelry. One of my favorite pieces of jewelry are earrings. I am not talking about diamond studs, I like colorful…whimsical earrings of all kinds.

Little White Shirt at the Little Cupcake Bakeshop

In NYC right now it is 79 degrees. Yes, you it read right. Just when you thought the season of Fall was here Summer decided to make a comeback. Surprisingly, I don’t mind the change of season at all. I love the Fall weather, but I can appreciate a warm day every now and then. SO what do you wear when the previous season like Summer makes a come back? Light weight clothing like a white shirt and jeans. You are still covered up and weather appropriate. Who knows the next day it could be feel like Winter.

I recently took a trip to the famous Little Cupcake Bakeshop in Brooklyn, New York. I consider myself a cupcake connoisseur (lol) and these cupcakes prove me right once again.  The shop is just as its title describes…..cute and little. Just enough space to enjoy a sweet treat and take in the views. I only had a cupcake, but I did indeed want more.

Everyone should have multiple white shirts. Whether high end like Anne Fontaine or Low end like Old Navy you can never have too many. Step outside the box purchase a lace trimming or bell sleeve. Go one stop further and even try silk. White shirts are a closet staple and even though cotton long sleeve with a collar is always acceptable nothing wrong with having a little fun.

Kate Spade Home Pop Up Shop 

Despite what The Almanac says Spring has Sprung in NYC. It was almost 80 degrees and it felt great! Warm weather means less layers and more time outside.

While in SoHo I had to visit the  Kate Spade Home Pop Up Shop . We’re not talking about the usual bags, accessories, stationary etc. The same cuteness in those items has been transformed to Housewares and Bedding with sprinkles of Stationary.

If you look closely the lady in the floral dress is the Creative Director Deborah Lloyd 

When you enter into the shop you are greeted by a well organized table and a guest book.

IMG_0111

Yes, the table is for sale!

I called this table the Tree of Housewares. I wanted every single item on this table. However, the Wall of Stationary with the gold pens were calling my name.

Everything was soo nicely placed I didn’t want to touch the table.

Pens $25 for 6 (free booklet)

If only our Dining Room tables could look this picturesque all the time. I love the pink shoes hanging on the chair. Behind the table is a chest full of the most adorable china.

Of course the pink heels are Kate Spade!

Love!!! 

I think my favorite part of the whole pop up shop is the Kitchen. Its colorful, fun and what everyone wishes their kitchen looked like. Again everything was placed soo strategically I didn’t want to touch anything. Surprisingly you were encouraged to touch and feel the product.

EVERYTHING is for sale except for the stove.

Never forget you’re “Adding The Sauce”.

No caption needed lol

Near the Kitchen in the far right corner is a chair that took my breath away. I love all colors, but my favorite color of all time is pink…..Any shade of pink. The furniture is for sale, special order only.

IMG_0124

Alex, I’ll take the chair, pillow and shoes for $200. 

The very last part of this experience is the Bedroom. All the bedding is sold on the shelves. The end and coffee tables, lamps and bed frame are special order. The floral shoes on the bottom right are currently sold in stores.

I wanted to lay on the bed….OK  I actually wanted to jump on the bed, but I had to contain myself. A sales associate volunteered to take my picture.

I know you are thinking…How do I incorporate these colors into my current wardrobe? Are these colors only for the spring? Glad you asked! The easiest way….add an Accessory.
