Rise & Shine!

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Happy Monday, lovelies! How was your weekend? I had a wonderful one. Saturday started out with brunch, followed by a day of shopping in Soho. We hit a bunch of shops and I got a few tops at Topshop but the shopping stopped a bit prematurely because there was a huge storm. But we weren't going to let a little rain stop our fun so we headed for cocktails and then finished off with dinner at my favorite restaurant. Couldn't have asked for a better day :)

Another exciting part of my weekend was yesterday I was on over at Christine's amazing blog Bijou and Boheme sharing my Style in Seven. Stop by and see it if you haven't had a chance :)

Now Monday is here and I'm ready to start the short work week. I'm off Friday for the holiday weekend. And some more good news is that it's getting sunnier and a bit warmer and I'm hoping spring decides to stay around this time!

Have a great day and I hope your week gets off to a fabulous start! xoxo

I absolutely loved your post over at Bijou and Boheme. Your style is classic with that perfect twist that can make it unique. I find similarities with my own style. :) And the Chanel 2.55 is one of my dreams as well, the bag I'm coveting the most. Wishing you a fabulous week! Ada

It was too short, way too short - but spring is finally here! I would love to hear some 'insider NY tips' from you, Dawn. If you ever find the time perhaps you'd like to share some of your favourite places with us?

That first shot captured my imagination. Who shot it?

Jess said...

Glad you enjoyed your shopping trip this weekend! My weekend was relatively low-key for once, which was kind of nice. I'm a little jealous of your weather there, though, because it's still cold and rainy here :(. Crossing my fingers that it will be nice for Easter next weekend!!

Sandy a la Mode said...

Tamra of walkswithBella said...

Ohh I love the Anja's makeup from picture #1!! Glad you had a great weekend. It was a little quieter in Soho this wkend bc of the weather, so hopefully that made Topshop and the other stores nicer to shop in.

Have a great week!

I loved the post! She said you have the prettiest blog, and I must agree. It was such fun reading about your opinion on style--I am a firm believer in having a signature bag, and I found myself nodding along to your other ideas as well.
