I’ve tried to steer clear of the return of 80’s fashions for the most part. (Acid washed jeans – no thanks! I remember them too well from the first go round!) But hot pink…this 80’s trend I can wear day after day.

I’ve been half joking recently that my new thing is to wear a boring outfit – but then add on a crazy accessory like a statement necklace, or in this case a bright, eye catching acid hot pink belt for instant pizazz. This belt is from H&M where I was originally looking for a leopard belt, but they didn’t have one in my size so I ended up with hot pink, and couldn’t be happier.

Chilly “Spring” Morning

042013_boyshirt2_copy3

It is still so chilly here in NYC – where is spring? Here is an outfit I wore to walk to the Farmer’s Market in Brooklyn last Saturday. I had planned to wear a t-shirt and some open toed clogs (more on that later!) but had to throw on long sleeves and my trusty faux fur vest as soon as I saw the weather report. This outfit is similar to my travel outfit, and faux fur + plaid is becoming one of my favorite combinations. Hopefully we can start getting some real spring weather soon and I can put away all my cold weather clothes for good.
