I finally got my Warby Parker sunnies in, which you voted on and chose for me (well done readers, well done!)—just in time for the gorgeous weather we finally had after what seemed like an eternity of rain here in NYC.
The best part about these sunnies is that they’re prescription, so I could finally see clearly all of the amazing views that Red Hook, Brooklyn had to offer this weekend. Not to mention, shielding my allergies at the amazing Chelsea Garden Center out there.
STYLIST TIP: Opt for nude shoes if you are self-conscious about your legs. This will create the illusion of longer gams. Dark flat shoes will make you appear shorter—especially if there is an ankle strap.

Do you ever have one of those days where you don’t want to get out of your pjs and would love to get away with wearing cashmere sweatpants out—or justify the expense to buy cashmere sweatpants for that matter ($1500 for loungewear?? Maybe one day.)?
I definitely did. I threw on my cashmere sweater and cashmere scarf and bundled up in the cold on Saturday. I polished this cozy look off with my new over-sized tortoise shell, cat eye shaped glasses that I’m obsessing over by House of Harlow.
Upon my recent visit to Boston, I worked with the amazing Crush Boutique to pull some looks for Boston Globe Magazine (check it out this weekend!). I wasn’t supposed to be shopping for myself, but I couldn’t resist my gravitation to their selection of Nicole Richie’s accessories and clothing lines respectively: House of Harlow and Winter Kate. Damn you Nicole Richie. I don’t want to admit it, but that chick has amazing taste. I’ll take one of everything from these vintage-inspired styles and from Crush Boutique…I wonder if they carry cashmere sweatpants…
