pink please

Je t’aime la couleur rose, et toi? This is my ode to summer: To ombre, backpacks trending on the streets, to 3 people doing yoga in our living room (that is tiny), too much rose, to eating ice cream in central park, to laying out in Battery Park City, to put put golf under the…

summer sandals

I see you. That one last pair of summer sandals…. I’ll take these – Marni love. xx B sandals, frenchie, marni sandals

marble please

I normally just keep my phone case sweet and simple – clear, but couldn’t resist this marbled look. Thoughts? How do you dress your phone? xo B image found here

picnic time

Yay! It’s spring. I think this coming weekend I’m going to pack a picnic. I’ll grab a baguette for these sandwiches, watermelon for something sweet and currently can’t get enough of roasted chickpeas so bringing these and these for snacks. Vino on the side of course and cheese for dessert! Stop by Provisions for all…

the french, I mean five, minute face

I was reading an article about Lola Rykiel in April’s Harper’s Bazaar, and couldn’t help but share this quote: ‘I don’t put on makeup in the morning, only at night when I go out. In the day I feel like it’s cheating.” I was out to dinner with my friend Julie the other night and…

A francophone moment

Have you ever been in a conversation about the perfect baguette? Maybe croissant? It’s so french, n’est pas? Sadly I was trying to think of the American equivalent. What do we ask? Oh, where does one find the perfect cupcake? Eeek. I just recently got into a conversation about baguettes with someone, she was English,…

MICHI – Let’s go for a run!

I can’t help but agree that wearing cute workout clothes make me feel good when I’m on the go. My go-to gym items are jackets or long sleeve tops with sleeves that extend over your hands to keep them extra warm, and at the end of last summer, I fell in love with wearing biking shorts….

Backpack

Proenza has a backpack…let’s discuss. I can’t help but love it! I went to hear Jack and Lazzaro speak at an event held at the Apple store in NYC during fashion week. I found them to be intelligent young men who are passionate about their craft. Their Fall Winter 2014 2015 collection. I am pro-backpacks for the…

hat obsession

I love hats. Over the summer I was obsessed with Panama hats. You could find me in the street in a straw fedora any day and winter it’s all about my wool riding hat and a good beanie. For sometime now I have been craving the perfect baseball hat. I thought a black one would…

a foodie focus

Hola mes amis. It was a beautiful long weekend here in NYC. I’m dreaming of warmer weather, but know that once the summer heat hits, I’ll be dreaming of fall. I went here yesterday with some friends for lunch, and we all LOVED it. I feel like a lot of trendy veggie-focused casual restaurants are…

a lundi!

Trying this new workout this weekend. Even though it’s winter, I still love some leafy greens. Amazing photo. Love this mix. A great basic tote in many colors! Loving my French classes here. Have a wondermous weekend. xx B Quote
