Washing Away the Blues

I am finally beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel of winter.  This glimmer of light pushed me to wear a pair of non-sensible shoes out Friday night.

Mulberry postman's lock booties

I bought these electric blue Mulberry booties in the fall and while I don't think they look all that high, they certainly feel it when I'm prancing about town.  But I was hopeful enough and I wore them out even if it meant risking the snow and ice patches that still remain.

Zara top, Banana Republic pants, Miu Miu bag, Chanel necklace, Kenneth Jay Lane cuff
To add to the optimism, I wore one of my new spring tops from Zara with Banana Republic five pocket leggings and my new Miu Miu bag which I haven't put down.

On another note, I had a bittersweet weekend in NYC celebrating my darling niece's first birthday and wishing her, my brother and sister in law adieu since they are moving to London this Thursday.  We bought this fabulous giant (and I mean giant) red velvet cupcake from Crumb.   I'm hoping the two normal size (but still relatively large) cupcakes put it into perspective.

We got five slices out of it...

...and still had half a cupcake left.

And check out the pretty pink filling in the "Hostess" cupcake.
