motoring into spring

spring inspoI am counting down the seconds till spring for a multitude of reasons.  First and foremost, this NYC winter has gotten the best of me and despite my hardcore love of this amazing and wondrous city, I’m pissed off at the weather patterns.  The novelty of snow is appreciated, but when occurring weekly, it gets old really fast.  It’s safe to assume I’m over it.  With that said, I’m super excited to shed my heavy winter-wear and embrace the fashions of spring  which includes lighter jackets and more skin exposure.  I’m inspired by the above look and would love to replicate it when the temperature creeps up.  I don’t usually wear short necklaces, but am feeling this choker from Zara.  And a hint of a lace bra through the double breasted blazer is OH-so-sexy, bringing femininity and softness to the overall menswear inspired look.  Adios sweaters and boots!  Don’t let the door kick you in the ass on your way out!

spring ahead

tumblr_mxi3s8Iui21rm66sdo1_1280Although it’s a brand new year, we still have three looooong months of cold weather ahead of us.  I’m inspired by this Isabel Marant’ish look and loving obsessing over the shearling coat!  This ensemble simultaneously reads edgy, bohemian and cozy which is a mega win in my book!

Style Tip:  Wear a sexy tank underneath the sweatshirt to easily transform this winter outfit from day to night.  Plus, it will give you an extra layer of warmth!

PS: Does anyone know who makes the above coat???  I can’t find it on the interweb and need it in my life.  I’m assuming it’s a vintage one-of-a-kind.  Confessions of a shopaholic!  Happy Monday!  xx jenny
