Refreshing Decor

New Yorkers often joke that the reason our apartments are so small, is that they only serve as a place to rest your head at night. It's been a busy past few weeks with travel and celebrations; however, I still like freshening up my space and making it a cozy place to escape the hustle and bustle. No matter how small, I love creating a personal little sanctuary within the great, big, city of New York. These are a few of the things I am planning to mix in for a Spring refresh- a new candle, sweetly scented hand soap, fresh blooms, and pastel coffee table books. All which are perfect for the start of a new season and warmer weather to come - fingers crossed! xx

NYC Spring Bucket List

 
In honor of the first week of Spring, here is a little list of 9 things that are in my NYC plans for starting the new season. It's always fun to think about all the exciting things to do, as the weather begins to get warmer!
 
1. Picnic in Central Park
2. Pick up a sweet treat from Levain Bakery!
3. Dine al Fresco on a random weeknight - spontaneity can always turn a Tuesday sweeter!
4. Explore a vintage shop - this one has been recommended countless times...
5. Stop by Kate Spade's pop up shop in Soho
6. Run a half marathon in the city - I have one planned for April :)
7. Visit a new museum - I am thinking this one is next!
8. Take eyeliner application class at Sephora - bring on that cat eye!
9. Buy fresh produce at a local farmer's market and cook a yummy meal with friends

What's on your list? xx, Alexa

Spring Capsule Wardrobe


Lately, I have been thinking about items missing from my closet or that I rely on when unsure what to wear. These are the staples; your capsule wardrobe. The heels that makes you feel most feminine, lace up flats that can be worn both day or night, and denim that is easily mixed with other items in your closet. Here is my capsule Spring wardrobe - even better, many of the items (such as a leather tote, stripe tee and cashmere sweater) can be used in other seasons. Saving up and choosing pieces that will work for future years to come is worth it to me in the long run. I hope this list will serve as a helpful little guide during your next shopping trip! xx

Weekend Style & Sales

The past few days here in New York City have been absolutely gorgeous! Last night, I spent the evening outside eating and drinking on a patio in Meatpacking District, called The Chester - this spot may be one of my new favorite's! I can't believe that in early March, it was 75 degrees. Such a nice treat! It has me in the mood for some new Spring wear and what better time than with all of the fun sales going on right now? I have included the details on my favorites below. Don't forget to stop by Bloomingdales tomorrow to celebrate with me at the 100% collection launch of Carolee Jewelry! xx

Travel Style

This weekend I am heading to Nashville for a Bachelorette Party! I am so excited to head South again for the long weekend and enjoy some warmer weather, music and celebrations for a dear friend. My intentions are to keep a packing list short and sweet but, it's always easier said then done. I received this bag for my birthday and recently purchased this little suitcase for a few upcoming trips. They are the perfect combination for carrying everything from personal items to gifts, while also keeping the packing list a bit more contained! A few layers are also needed, as the weather can still be unpredictable at this time of year. Last but not least, how cute is this phone case? Definitely a fancy and fun motto for the weekend ahead! xx

P.S. Shopbop is having their Spring sale, starting today through March 5! I have my eye on this pair of lace shorts, these for Spring, and this cute wrap blouse!
