Just thought I’d give you a peek at a typical work outfit for me. My office is conservative, so in the winter I have stuck pretty close to a trousers and blouse formula. To keep my personality, I layer on some jewelry, add a fun belt, or swap in some trendy shoes. Sidenote: I love that the weather is starting to warm up in New York, because it means I can wear my many trench coats. To me, nothing is more classic and sophisticated than a great trench coat. I look for pieces with a special detail like the color-blocking in this version. What is your go-to Spring jacket?

Despite the recent snowstorm (in like a lion, right?), my fashion focus is on Spring, and the bright hue of these trousers injects the right touch of Springtime. Surprisingly, these blue pants are as versatile as they are audacious. In the spring, I will layer them with a chambray, scarf, and camel booties, and in the summer, I will opt for an easy tank and leather sandals. And did I mention they are ridiculously comfortable (much like this other favorite pair). How have you been adding a little much-needed Spring to your winter wardrobe?

I describe my style as classic with a twist, so this is a pretty typical weekend outfit for me centered around the timeless formula of jeans, a button-down, and loafers. To add the twist I may wear a pair of leopard-print loafers or I may trade in printed or colored denim or I may add a whimsical touch with polka dot socks and nerd it up with glasses… you just never know

Oh, and if my coffee-cup tattoo isn’t a dead giveaway… I like coffee. Hope you all had a wonderful, coffee-buzzed weekend!
