DVF Double Down

Boston had such gorgeous weather this weekend.  The first days of spring really make me appreciate what a lovely city I live in.
DVF top, J Brand jeans, Miu Miu oxfords

This fun flowy DVF top was the perfect way to celebrate what finally feels like the arrival of spring.

And how do you like my new fun nail polish?  It's Chanel mimosa.  Pardon the messy paint job but this was before I went for a proper mani.

Kate Spade jacket
Since there was a wee chill in the air, I added this bright kelly green Kate Spade jacket.

After my afternoon of prancing about town getting freshly coiffed and running some errands, I went home and did a quick change for the evening.  I decided I wanted to wear these suede shorts from Talbots that I hadn't yet had the chance to wear.  I tried on several different tops but settled on this navy DVF number for my evening out with a couple girlfriends.  And not quite ready to give up the coats just yet, I wore what has become my trusty go to camel jacket from Zara.

The ladies and I went to dinner at Erbaluce in Bay Village which was bustling when we arrived.  I'm always thrilled when a lovely local restaurant that prides itself on a creative menu with high quality, ingredients seems to be doing so well.   We had the privilege of a visit from the chef who sent out a few treats for us including the house cured salmon which was melt in your mouth delicious as well as a mushroom pasta dish that was layers and layers of mushroom flavor in a perfectly thin sheet of pasta with just the right amount of ricotta.  To die for.  I would definitely order both of those items on my next meal there.

I hope you all had as lovely a weekend as I did!


  1. i heart dvf so much. i can't believe i got to meet her when she was here recently to speak at harvard. she is my favorite designer ever!!

  2. You are so lucky to have met her!! I heart her too.

  3. LOVE LOVE YOUR shorts & the DVF top. looks so sophisticated!!! See you tonight at FiRE+iCE? :)

  4. Thanks Kinsey! I'm planning to come tonight though I likely will be late so might just come for a drink or two and skip dinner. See you later!

  5. I just heard about Mimosa! Do you think its worth the splurge, or can I find a similar yellow by OPI or Essie?

  6. I really like it but I did see a very similar Essie color at my nail place the other day though I didn't see what it was called. I'm really liking the yellow.

  7. I KNOW it's monochrome and we're getting al colourful and all that, but I love the first DVF top!
