Celebrating Spring Trends with Macy’s

I had the great pleasure of attending the Secret Garden Fashion Show at Macy’s hosted by the fabulous Christopher Macken on Friday.  Spring has finally arrived and so have the spring trends!  We received a glimpse of what will be hot this season.

Eagerly anticipating the show….

Guests enjoyed light hors d’oeuvres including scrumptious mini strawberry cupcakes, drinks, and music.

I have never been a huge fan of lace but this little swing top number was too cute for words.  I love the pop of color from these covetable orange wedges.

Another adorable example of the lace trend and also the bohemian trend with this Free People dress.  I love the flat gladiator sandals! A must-have addition to my closet!

I’m a girl that loves a great jumpsuit and will definitely be rocking them this season.  This look is ultra chic in black and white.  The glamorous hat will have people wondering ‘who’ you are…..

These shoes!!! #stevemadden!!

There will be more mixing prints this spring.  I would have never thought to pair floral sandals with a snakeskin print romper but it really works.

Spring trends

Ahhhh….pastels and florals.  Nothing else says spring like this lovely combo.

What I Wore: Last Day in NYC

Save the best for last.  That’s how I felt about our last day in NYC….

Posing in Times Square on our way to brunch.

Mother and I enjoying a delicious brunch at the Blue Fin inside the W Hotel Times Square.  Doesn’t she look adorable in her pink suit!

Always the most interesting characters in Times Square.

Getting ready for the show!

image

The show was absolutely amazing! It was almost more like a concert with everyone singing along to all of Motown’s greatest hits.  Oh! The boy who played the young Michael Jackson of the Jackson 5 blew everyone away! He sounded just as good, if not better, than M.J.! Please check out this show if you have the opportunity!

Goodbye NYC! At least until our next adventure :-)

What I Wore: NYC Day Two

Welcome to my second installment of NYC Mother’s Day weekend! Our morning started off in Tribeca where we had a scrumptious breakfast.

image

image

We enjoyed our breakfast at this quaint little restaurant called Kitchenette.  It was so warm and homey giving you the feeling of stepping into your grandmother’s kitchen with sweet smells swirling in the air!

image

image

Cookies and cakes galore!

image

Red velevet pancakes! Eat your heart out!

image

My girl Michele dropped by to join us for breakfast :-)

image

After our meal, Mom went to a salon next door for a manicure and I took the opportunity to burn some calories and explore Tribeca.

image

I came across an adorable farmers market with all sorts of goodies.

image

We left Tribeca and headed to the Soho area for some vintage shopping.  I was so excited to visit one of Rachel Zoe’s favorite shops Resurrection! It was filled with one of a kind vintage pieces from Missoni, Oscar de la Renta, Gucci, McQueen and more.  Unfortunately, I don’t have Rachel Zoe’s budget so none of these beauties came home with me. Next time ;-)

image

A little pit stop through Times Square on our way back to the hotel.

image

We ended our night at a restaurant of famed chef, Marcus Samuelsson, called the Red Rooster.  It is located right in the heart of Harlem so I wanted to go ultra vintage glam with a beaded headpiece and red lips.

image

That’s me impatiently awaiting my drink.

What I Wore: NYC Day One

A month ago, I was about to buy my ticket to Pittsburgh to surprise my mom for Mother’s Day weekend and my mother called and said she saw the cast of Motown the Musical on GMA and wanted to go to NYC to see the show on Mother’s Day.  I’m so glad she came up with the idea because I had the most amazing weekend with my mother in NYC! We were two birds of feather flocking around the city.  We arrived Friday afternoon and settled in at the Sofitel Hotel in Times Square.

Me & Mom

We enjoyed a scrumptious dinner at The Shop restaurant inside the Andaza Hotel.  We both had the red snapper and cleaned our plates.  We also had dessert! A wonderful, warm apple and cranberry crumbly goodness that was just absolutely sinful!

What I Wore: 80’s Baby

I am a true 80’s baby.  I believe I went through every phase growing up.  First, Cyndi Lauper and Madonna, then Culture Club and Wham, The Cure and Depeche Mode, Run DMC and Slick Rick, and of course Sheila E and Samantha Fox.  I loved it all and still do.  The 80’s fashion I feel gets a bad rap, but it wasn’t a totally unfortunate time in fashion.  We can probably leave stirrup pants and pleated acid wash jeans in the fashion graveyard, but some trends have returned in a glorious way like shoulder pads, leggings, neon, spikes, and studs.

image

This Helmut Lang moto jacket has small shoulder pads and sheer inlay on the sleeves.  I also love that big earrings are back.  I probably won’t break out my old gold bamboo earrings but these sparkly star ones are fun.

image

I also love the 80’s vibe of these electric blue jeans.  Bold pants are going to be everywhere this spring.
