Like most New Yorkers, I am ready to come out of a winter hibernation filled with binge watching and binge eating to rediscover all the places I love in this city. A wonderful way to welcome warmer days is to head downtown for an afternoon in SoHo. I love the European feel of the cobblestone on Wooster Street.
In case you couldn't tell, I now think I am a cast member of That 70's Show and have zero plans to dress in any way that could not be described as "groovy." I am grateful for the return of the chunky-heeled platform, because these streets aren't exactly stiletto-friendly. A turtleneck is a great tool for layering on a breezy spring day that doesn't quite call for a jacket. I love the way a black or white turtleneck looks under almost anything from a chambray shirt to a slip dress or as seen here, with a retro crochet vest. Because your legs are arguably spring's most important accessory, make sure to invest in some self-tanner (I am a fan of Jergens Natural Glow) as those stems make their return to public.
This particular day was the last day of my rental period with this gorgeous, satin, embellished Chanel bag from Fashion Curated. I made sure to get a ton of mileage out of those special, 7 days, wearing the bag with just about every outfit throughout the week. I think it is a misconception that an "evening bag" should only be worn in the evening. Pairing a glamorous bag with a casual, day look makes a chic statement! Added bonus? You don't have to keep switching your wallet, keys, and lipstick back and forth to different purses if you're only using one!
