I feel like flower crowns are having a bit of a moment. I have seen them crop up on some of my favorite e-retailers, and I’ve spotted a few girls wearing them on the street. Flower crowns are undeniably fun, so I was so thrilled when Monique Martin of Harvested by Monique offered to make me one of her custom flower crowns. Monique only makes custom flower crowns which is great because you get exactly what you want. Wanna know the best part? Most of her crowns are under $20. This is a no brainer. Get yoself one!

March has always been my least favorite month– mostly because March is such a little trickster. Usually, “the first day of Spring” is in March. In your mind you may think — oh, warm weather will start in March! This idea is 100% false. March goes in like a lion and out like one too. Here in the city, it has snowed twice and remained a solid 46 degrees. Blergh.
This black dress I am wearing has been sitting, long forgotten, in my closet. I don’t like to wear it because it is so unforgiving — and almost impossible to get on and off. This dress is the only bodycon dress in the history of the world that has absolutely zero stretch or give and one tiny zipper along the side to “help” you get it on and off. Invariably, I get the dress halfway on or halfway off and it gets completely stuck around my shoulders or lady lumps and I have to call in for assistance.
As long as I don’t eat anything all day but water and the souls of small children, and have an assistant to get me in and out of this dress, it is actually pretty cute. I especially love the leather detailing around the collar.
I was closet shopping and I found these old wide leg pants from United Colors of Benetton. I used to shy away from wearing these because they are linen and wrinkle something crazy just doing little things like sitting or, like, walking down the street.
Also, do people even wear wide leg trousers anymore? Well, I do. I am gonna get these bad boys starched and add them to my regular wardrobe rotation.
May I take a moment to draw your attention to the INCREDIBLE pattern detail on this shirt from The Impeccable Pig? There are literally a million ways I could style this top. Since it is a frozen tundra in NYC, I layered it with my favorite chambray and crochet sweater (no, I probably won’t stop complaining about the weather in every post until mid April — at the earliest).
Also, these photos were taken in my Harlem ‘hood. Harlem has the best front stoops y’all. They remind me so much of the stoops on Sesame Street — amiright? I am patiently waiting for Big Bird to miraculously appear in the photo below…

There was such beautiful light the other day, so me and my dear creative director decided to play around with it. Now I wish I had worn something more ethereal since the light was so warm and lovely– but who doesn’t love a good polka dot sweater? Also, I am obsessed with my leopard print flats. I can’t take them off.
These photos were shot in sunny, gorgeous Virginia! My hubby and I came into town to see my lovely parents and their new dog (who you will meet tomorrow). The weather was beautiful and it was great to shed my coat for a few days.
