things i love-- sunny days.

visited things i love thursdays on flickr today to find some inspiration. let me preface this post by acknowledging that a) it is april 28th; gloomy, not quite warm, and almost-spring and b) i am unemployed and desperately seeking some source of sunshine. found this :


i am a sucker for shades. as is crissie, obviously, from the previous entry on wayfarers. this past fall i actually found tom ford sunglasses on the ground in teardrop park, tribeca. *may* have been the best moment of my life, thus far. here's a board i made, on sunglasses inspiration:

{livi in london, cris at fort tryon, megs in park, clayton and brick wall, jules at graduation, livi on train, jonah at lunch, jim as pirate, crissie and lou}

all pictures in my board are by me :)

and for 2010 sunglass trends:

{1960s French style icon and Nicolas Ghesquière referential muse Francois Hardy's sunglass aesthetic feels incredibly chic for spring 2010. Slightly oversize square frames in timeless black on white color combinations are just understated enough to work with every look. Balmain taps into these understated subtleties with the debut of its first full-scale sunglass collection.}

here's hoping that it will TRULY be sunglass season, soon. especially for our return to the 60s. :)

dreamy jeans...

Just when I thought I'd be living in skinny jeans and straight leg pants for the rest of my life...I keep finding myself tempted by wide-legged jeans and flares. 

As spotted on {this is glamorous

and in what maybe my new favorite line-- LL Bean Signature:

I'm totally obsessed with their classic summer looks. PLUS- who wouldn't die for these flats?

What do you think--are flared pants coming back already??

{things} i ♥ monday...

This week i was inspired by a post on Brunch at Saks. I love my Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses, so do these stylish ladies: 

{images from coolspotters}

They are just awesomely cool. Happy Monday. 

This is going to be a busy week. The Yankees are going to Oakland-- which means the A's games will be on TV out here (yay!) but it also means I'll be up into all hours of the night watching them ;)

Spring in New York

I finally visited the High Line. Beautiful day. 

I love exploring the city... I should really find time to do it more. :)

Style Notebook-the challenge

For some reason I love to "re-define" my style every spring. I think it is just a fancy excuse to go shopping.  This year, however, I do not have much room in my budget for the re-definition project. SO the goal is to find inspirations from designer collection and then find look-a-like pieces for cheap.
Today's challenge? See by Chloe Summer 10 

I really love this whole collection, it is the perfect mix of polish and casual ease--just what I need in my life.
 Stay tunned for my budget friendly interpretation... :)

Spring = love, love, love

{via amourtendre}

Spring break might be over--but spring has really started now. Baseball is back. And thought I am thousands of miles away from my home team and have to make do with broadcasts of Red Sox/Yankees nail-biters--it's still baseball, and it always makes me smile.

Bright, balloon filled rooms also make me smile. Just not quite as much as baseball...
