a little bite of happy

As I have gotten older I have gained a true appreciation for sweets. Whether a bite of a freshly baked cupcake, a few macaroons or a piece of fancy chocolate, I truly enjoy a sweet treat every once in a while {ok, at least once a week}. Looking back over these picture from my trip to NYC, I can’t help but crave a Magnolia Bakery cupcake, a little bite of happiness.

in between

Keeping in the theme of yesterday’s post, I can’t help but purchase transition pieces. Ones that will take me right into the early days of summer. Unfortunately it gets way too hot down here to even wear light weight jackets in the summer, but for the next few weeks these jackets would be perfect!

By now you are all well aware, I love a good collaboration. Anytime a designer produces pieces at an affordable price point I am all over it. DVF has done it again, this time with Roxy. Pairing up for a lovely little swimwear collection. Diane knows bold prints better than anyone else, and these prints are perfect for days spent in the sunshine. How cute are the little bags as well, the smaller ones are perfect to pack your swimsuits in.

So many spring trends and one that I can’t seem to get away from is black and white {as seen here}. What makes this color combination so great is its versatility and that it screams “wear me now”. No need to wait for warmer weather!

golden glasses

If you have spent any time with me you know I am quick to purchase anything with golden hues, or to use gold spray paint to change the color. I came across these gold glasses and absolutely love them. How fabulous would these be for a wedding gift or a house-warming present? I have several weddings coming up and these would make the modern bride, oh so happy!

black & white in NYC

On my trip to New York last week, I couldn’t help but notice the abundance of black and white. From the windows at Bergdorf’s, to the floor tile at Magnolia Bakery, to the new arrival racks at H&M. Here are a few of my black and white NYC moments. Stayed tuned to shop the look later this week.

new arrivals

While shopping around New York, I couldn’t get enough of the new spring arrivals in store. I brought the shopping bug home with me and can’t seem to stop searching out spring items online. Here are a few of my fav new items from Forever21.

clutch crush

I’m back from New York, and moving much slower then usual today! I had such a great time in the city with some of my best college girlfriends, but after a jammed packed weekend it’s always nice to get back home. I came across these precious C.Wonder clutches over the weekend. Perfect to throw in an oversized bag or use alone as a clutch.

P.S. Ignore the funny colors of my blog, WordPress has been acting up the last two days. Hope to have it fixed soon!
