Making the switch to iced coffee today...

Hooray! It's warm out! Even if it's only going to last one week, I finally get to break out some of my new spring clothes. Granted, sometimes I go a little overboard, and end up freezing my tush off outside, but dammit I look cute doing it!

**ATTENTION all NYC girls** - Girlshop is having their one and only warehouse sale, March 15-18th at their boutique (819 Washington St. at Gansevoort, 212-255-4985)!! Thurs-Fri 10-8, Sat-Sun 11-6. You all know where I am going to be on Thursday......

FINALLY some Spring stuff from CKBradley's website! I love the Tulip dress in Green/Navy ($320):

The warm weather also inspired me to pop over to Snappy Turtle to see if they had any new preppy spring&summer stuff.. and indeed they did!

Party Skirt - lime/white ($240)
Kenneth Jay Lane Toggle Necklaces, in lots of colors.. White and Turquoise are my faves - I can't decide which one I like better! ($110 each)

And last, these Diamond "Kiss Me Knot" evening bags ($98).. The pattern reminds me of a CKBradley dress from a year or so ago.. but oh so cute!
I have a big soft spot for Keds. I was a child of the 80's, and that's all I ever wore. I only wish that back then, they had the cute patterns/shapes they have now. All I ever got were the plain white ones in canvas and leather. With slouch socks. But we won't go there.

Annnyywayyy - I have their distressed canvas ones from last year in white and navy, but I think I might have to pick up these Buttercup Skimmers ($40) next time I am at Macy's... I love the pink and the green one!

And, to get rid of our pale winter faces, I found this on Sephora - haven't tried it yet, but it's a good excuse to go there today..

Smashbox O-GLOW
($26) - it claims to be "the first intuitive blush, this clear gel reacts with your personal skin chemistry to turn cheeks the exact color you blush, naturally in just seconds! When applied, the skin's moisture activates the energizing Goji Berry-C Complex™. It creates a microcirculatory effect, producing a rosy flush that lasts all day."... HMMM.... I don't know if I buy it. I'll have to try it out and see - it would be nice if it works! But the whole "microcirculatory effect" thing makes me a little worried - what if my face just blows up and looks like a bloated tomato for 24 hours??

The blush stuff sounds like a good idea but it just reminds me of that scary plump lip gloss that I got one time... I put enough on so my lips were nice and shiny and then they got painfully tingly, very plump and very red. I think it worked a little bit too much!
