Well today was just a lovely afternoon as I celebrated yet another friend’s Aries birthday. The restaurant Jones Wood Foundry is a lovely wine and beer bar on the Upper East Side with a beautiful restaurant in the back which has multiple rooms with different character feel in each. We were one of the first to be sitting in the outdoor seating since it finally just started to get warmer. We had Sancerre, the Fish n Chips and the Salmon Burger. I’m wearing a Vince white blazer, and H&M Blue Dress and MIA snakeskin heels which I think are a fabulous design.
This outfit I wore to an Instagram meet up about a couple weeks ago. It was amazing to meet so many talented photographers who are also interested in a social media platform that has had continuous growth. It was actually quite windy on the East River in Manhattan as we walked from the Manhattan Bridge to the Brooklyn Bridge taking photos of different subjects as we went along. The photographer which can be found @canhatam, a Boston based photographer originally from Turkey has been blowing up on Instagram with his beautiful photos using the hashtag #discoveraround. My Burberry jacket was envied by many since I seemed to have the warmest one on, however, my short dress underneath for the after party was not helping with the under draft. My Sam Edelman boots definitely helped keep my legs warmer and they were not painful at all throughout the walk.
I feel this is the perfect transitional outfit from this past ridiculously long winter to this warming up spring time. Showing a little leg and mixing light and dark is the way you can do this. As the temperature rises, the hemlines go up, toes will break out, and necklines swoop. Till then, I wear a light weight and color turtleneck, a slit light and dark skirt, and booties that give a peak of skin to make a statement “It’s not winter anymore”. My bag is italian leather and actually purchased on a cart vendor in the South Street Seaport in lower Manhattan. I recommend going shopping down in that area as the weather starts to get better and better.
