Sunsets and Off-Shoulders

IMG_6098

I’ve recently started a new job and its the end of the school year for my kids, which means I’ve been swamped! I’ve been overwhelmed with keeping up with all end of year class parties, buying teacher gifts, playdates, while trying to keep a cooked meal on the table every night (I barely did it for one night this week…).  I love being a mom, but I’m sure all parents would agree,

Conservatory Garden

The Conservatory Garden in Central Park is one of my favorite places in all of New York City.  I have an emotional attachment to this small oasis.  For many years, I would walk through here with my son after school.  It became a ritual for us.  Whenever the weather was nice, I would

Leather Jacket Must!

DSC_0124

I have been wearing the same leather jacket for over ten years, until NOW! I fell in love with this jacket as soon as I saw it. Everyone owns a motorcycle jacket of some sort so it’s hard to tell them all apart. What makes this one so different? It’s not leather! It’s vegan. Vegan leather is a leather substitute fabric that contains no animal products.

Skort

Spring fever has kicked in and I’m loving Spring fashion this year.  The weather in NYC is perfect, where is not too hot and its not too cold.  I took advantage of this with this playful skirt from Zara where it’s also a pair of shorts. SKORTS.

Black&White

Blk&Wht6

As a New Yorker, gravitating towards a black and white outfit comes so natural to me. This time, I thought I would add a bit of flair with a pair of fabulous pumps with feather appliques. I got lucky walking into a J.Crew store when I found these shoes. They were retailed for about $300 but I walked out of the store with them paying under $100! I’m a big bargain

Jeweled Bugs

Spring is in the air in NYC and its the perfect time to show some transitional outfits.  It’s still sweater season but we can choose a lighter knit and opt for some open shoes as opposed to a pair of boots.  For todays outfit, I fell in love with this jeweled sweater from Banana Republic.  The jeweled bugs are in beautiful shades of blue, green, and white.  This short sleeve sweater

When we think of rulers of nations we think of men, but Anacaona was the Cacica (chief) of Xaragua in the southwest region of Hispaniola.  The Taíno translation of her name is “golden flower” and she came from a long line of caciques.  She ruled Xaragua equally with her brother, Brohechío. Her husband, Caonabo, ruled a nearby territory, Maguana. They were two of the top five

Love It or Hate It

I’m having a love/hate relationship with this belted top. The colors and pattern of this fabric is what I gravitated towards. I really like the color combination with the green and pink intermixed together. I also love the silluette of the top. It’s flattering and I’ve love peplum style tops. This versatile top allows
