Black and white with a pop of brights. It's the perfect way to bring spring into your wardrobe if the weather isn't 100% cooperating. Since we all know that black and white is once again super cool--I shopped my closet for a top that worked the trend. This one was a score from a TJMaxx trip.
Since it's stil in the 40s here in NYC, I don't feel silly wearing my coated denim 3 x 1 jeans. They look like leather, but have the more relaxed feel of denim. I've been wearing them a ton this winter since they have a slim look that tucks so nicely into boots. The boot are now on the THIRD sole. You know I walk a ton. These boots have been around for five years now. I just keep shining them and re-soling them and they look great.
Now let's talk accessories. Since I am baring arms, I went with a few pieces--my big (and very temperamental--it's broken twice in 6 months) Marc Jacobs watch and bangle from Stella & Dot.
The bag is from Brahmin. I'm toting the Sloane Satchel ($345). It's embossed leather to look like croc--it does indeed look expensive and has a superb vintage appeal. The bag is perfect for anyone who likes to feel organized. Inside there's a interior zip pocket, two organizer pockets, jewelry pocket, penloops and key clips.
Now I want to know how you are getting through these last few weeks of winter. And those of you in warm climates....keep the sunny fashions coming. I'm jealous but love them all! We've got a HUGE incentive to link this week.
