Spring Stripes

Is it spring yet? Thankfully we've seen some warm rays of sunshine over the weekend, despite the 6 inches of snow we got on Friday, it almost feels like we never got the snow to begin with. Warm weather just makes me feel happy (almost as a happy as the smiley face on the AMI shirt I'm wearing above). This spring go bold or go bolder, but whatever you do, don't play it safe. Try fun weather-appropriate patterns, and more importantly inject some color into your wardrobe, after all some of you may have been wearing 7 layers of dark shades while living through what felts like an endless winter, so a little color is what you probably need. Today, I'm test-driving my new unconstructed ultra-striped blazer by the one and only, Thom Browne. Paired with white denim, suede dress up shoes and a smile (literally).

Just when I thought I was going to hang up my camel coat until next season. (Then it snowed 6 inches of snow on last Friday, and was 30 degrees yesterday = not the look). The only good part about this (yup there's always something positive from that comes from the negative) is that I got to play around with some layering pieces and paired my denim jacket (a spring essential) with my camel coat, a white shirt and polka dots.

Although I pretty much preached, and begged desperately, for it to be Spring in yesterday's post, looks like we have to hang tight and wait patiently for a bit longer (Mother nature, please hurry up!). Yup, that's right, we are expecting 3-6 inches of snow today in NYC. If you want a front row seat to the last signs of winter, be sure to follow me on Snapchat, username "MotiAnkari." P.S. how to wear a leather jacket in the winter? Just throw on your heaviest turtleneck knit sweater.
