I {heart} NY


Don't you just love New York? When I have the chance to be there I just drink it in...for some reason when I am in NYC I have so much energy...energy to walk several blocks just to be out...energy to stay out late for cocktails even when I have a full plate the next day...something about this city does it for me. In the spirit of the "stroller cam" here is a pic from the Blackberry cam.

Being in NYC also got me inspired...my head was turned by many chic NYC girls with their straighter than straight jeans, cool flats, and bright colored trenches. It was just starting to get a little warmer in the city...you could feel Spring in the air. Even the men look different here...I was downtown near Wall Street and the uniform was classic...cufflinks are a must and even the toughest Wall Street tycoon doesn't mind wearing a splash of pink.

How are we feeling about my latest finds from Madewell plus a sweet little coral cross body bag our fave girl Emily posted about from Forever 21?
Can you picture it? Sunday brunch with the girls...a mimosa in hand?

I love big city energy. In SF and NYC both. And Chicago too. Love just being able to walk those cities.
