Outfit: Floral District

Stripes & Sequins Outfit:  Floral DistrictMara Hoffman Coat (old – in black or deal) // Rebecca Minkoff Bag

Rag & Bone Jeans (so flattering) // Loeffler Randall Tamsin Pumps

One of my favorite things about living in New York is that you can buy fresh flowers on nearly every corner.  Buying myself an $8 bouquet of roses is a great way to treat myself after a stressful day of work (or reward myself for a job well done!)  How do you reward yourself?

  3. Lynzy says 1.24.13

    This is definitely one of the reasons I miss NYC- picking up a bundle as I am walking home!

    You look adorable (as always)!

  5. We made it a Sunday tradition to go buy flowers for the week. We don’t have something like this on every corner tho:(

    Treating myself with flowers is one of my favorite things to do…it always seems to fix or brighten any more! I’ve actually been dying to get to the flower district, but I haven’t had a chance yet!

  11. Caitlin Wilson says 1.24.13

    I love the jacket/necklace combo! You’re definitely going to need more layers for the next few days. It’s going to be a chilly one in NYC!

    Love those shoes!

  13. Nikki Rappaport says 1.24.13

  14. Nicole Kivitz says 1.24.13

    Absolutely LOVE that jacket! And I’m with you on the flowers. I love to buy them for myself for a little pick me up. There aren’t many cheap things in NYC but I am so glad flowers are one of them!

  15. Sarah says 1.24.13

    beautiful coat and blazer! I live out in a rural area and while it is absolutely beautiful, I sometimes wish that I had the convenience of the city…

  16. Kristina says 1.24.13

    I buy myself flowers as a treat too! I love the blazer you have on.

  25. Kodi says 1.24.13

    I would LOVE to live somewhere like that! There would be so many more flowers in my apartment. Luckily we’ve got the Farmer’s Market in the summer once a week so I can get my flower fix then. Also, that blazer is amazing.

  26. Jamie says 1.25.13

    You look fabulous! Cannot believe you made that necklace, you are so creative!

  27. I got to say I’m so jealous at how easily accessible fresh flowers are in the city. I also must say I can’t decide what I love more about this outfit, that little blazer or those great little heels!
