think pink

10th January 2014

so we may be a 10 days or so into the new year, but things are still merry & bright in the west village … and I’m not complaining!   

Fur: Michael Kors (similar) // Coat: Kate Spade (similar here or shop below)
Skirt: Modcloth (similar) // Turtleneck: J.crew (Similar) // Belt: Saks via My Sisters Closet // Sunnies: Karen Walker // Boots: Kate Spade (similar) // Bag: Coach // Beret: Bonnie Beret, Vintage // Lip: Mac, Ruby Woo // Jewels: J.crew // J.crew Outlet (old) // Target 
I fell in love with this pink coat a few years back while living in San Francisco, and have been wearing it ever since. I love the bright color, bow detail and inside floral lining … it basically screams Courtney. The coat was such a hit that Kate remade a similar version this fall, it’s since gone on sale but there are still a few floating around, shop here.
Similar shocking pink coats:
As decor the christmas decor, I assume the last of it will come down this weekend … but it was fun while it lasted and marks the end of the most wonderful time of the year, and the beginning of a new year!

Weekend Twirl

6th January 2014

It’s no secret I love twirl-worthy tulle (don’t believe me, check out the highlights here), and since this season calls for tartans & flannel, I paired plaid with my favorite skirt for tulle with a twist.


Shirt: Old Navy (obsessed with this one) // Snood: Michael Kors (Old, Similar: onetwo [cashmere on sale, yes please!], and three) //  Sweater: : Forever 21 // Pumps: Coach // Bag: Vintage via the Melrose District in AZ (Love this one) // Sunnies: Karen Walker (also here) // Skirt: H&M (old, love this one) // Headband: Vintage, similar // Ring: Betsey Johnson (old, similar here) // Jewels: J.crew, Kate Spade 
Confession: I’m addicted to teen TV; The Vampire Diaries, Awkward, Teen Wolf …  I don’t care how awful & cheesy it may be, you name it I watch it! So although I love December I hate saying goodbye to my embarrassing bunch of shows during the holiday hiatus. To fill the void, I end up re-watching some of my cancelled favorites all month long, and December 2013 was all about GG … resulting in a re-ignited obsession with Blair Waldorf & her signature headbands!
P.S. I love that the west village is still
dripping in holiday decor (notice the tree behind me?).
I don’t wish we kept it up all year long – then it wouldn’t be special,
but I like to keep a little bit of cheer until mid January!

Parks & Puffers

17th December 2013

Last Saturday, NYC turned into a winter wonderland when we were showered with what I like to call “movie snow” (because it was pretty and perfect) all day long. So to celebrate, I spent Sunday playing in the aftermath at Washington Square Park with my french fella: Waffles
Sweater: Forever 21 (similar here or here) // Puffer: Old Navy (love this one) // Skort: Zara (similar) // Bag: Coach (similar) // Rainboots: Burberry (Half off here // similar for $15) // Scarf: Old Navy // Gloves: Target (similar) // Sunnies: Karen Walker (also here) // Jewels: Jcrew // Vintage
Washington Square Park is one of my favorite spots in the city. We picnic there in the summer and enjoy long walks in the Fall, so It only made sense that we had a chilly adventure on this cold day in December. I wanted to wear something comfy for our park playdate, but was so over wearing a coat and determined to go without, despite the 30 degree weather (must be my Arizona roots coming through). I adorned myself in arctic activewear, and paired a slouchy sweater and puffer vest with lots of layers (I’m wearing an additional two sweaters underneath the spots) and fur lined leggings. And since snow boots are bulky and often ugly, I turn to rainboots on snow/slush days. Waffles also pulled on a pooch worthy puffer to keep out the chill.
