My Secret Garden

I went walking through the west village today and the spring blooms are out in full force...They were just too beautiful to keep to myself. Enjoy!

and a random dessert...makes me think of a court jester's hat

As Time Passes By

Sat on the Union Square steps again today...great location to lazily watch the crowds weave through the multiple streets that converge there on their way home or out for the night.

Who said New Yorkers only wear black?

As a worshiper of tights, it is always nice to see someone not scared to break the black/brown rule...who likes rule anyways!

I must say there is something so chic about a monochromatic outfit! Nontraditional touches such as this three quarter sleeved drawstring "trench" keep it from coming off too dowdy.

I adore a pop of color and this woman's opaque blue tights add just enough quirk to an otherwise nothing special office outfit.

Very shabby chic!

The sweater's chunky design is so ornate and overall a unique pick!

I'm a sucker for a good leather jacket and this one looks extremely supple and well made.

Worn leather riding boots and black leggings paired with a magenta coat and a peep of lace make for such a charming outfit!

A great multi-inspirational outfit with the equestrian boots, nautical jacket, preppy popped collar shirt and no fuss faded jeans!

How to look cute when essentially you are in pajamas.

Beautiful and sleek head to toe. Always a fan of all over black!

Another cute and "pajama-y" look.

Tres chic! It's always amazing how a basic trench and a burst of red create such a darling combination...the vintage bike with a basket doesn't hurt either!

The tiered effect of the layering of coats and a dress is lovely.

This electric blue wrap dress stands out among the crowd...I wish she had added a great pair of wedges and a messy chignon though.

So simple but the unexpected length difference adds cool factor.

Personally, I love yellow and this cheery little jacket livens up a plain tee and jeans combo.

The ambiguity of this couple's outfits is delightful! I could easily picture an outfit swap and it would be just as stylish!

Not my style, but the caramel leather boots and skirt add a "pocahontas" quality.

Fetching espadrilles and a blush scarf are spot on!

A little blurry, I know, but I wanted to include her androgynous style.

Pediatric shoes are stylish? Never thought I would see the day!

Just a cutesy tote.

Yet again, a pop of red goes a long way and I want her t-strap micro-heels!

I love the sturdyness of these military accents!

Union Square

This week at Jamba Juice there was a buy one get one free special, so my suitemate and I stocked up parked ourselves on the park steps for a some lunch rush people watching...

Love the jeans...wonder if they're homemade.

Nothing too special about the outfit, but the shoes are great!

These pastel yellow ciggy pants look adorale with the pastel blue satchel and white loafers...very 50s or "little mermaid" inspired!

Too bad the sun washed out her shoes. They were lace up wedge snakeskin with a tie front! I personally like the pink/red combo too. Sure it can be a little "valentines day" but it's cute.

Great day-off style: The coral sweater and jeans balance perfectly with the cork wedges, fedora, and multi-strand necklace!

The new shoes I bought! Nothing amazing but breathable for the summer and on sale for $5!!

Sure, it may be flaking, but it almost makes it better and adds an interesting crackle look

Not a huge fan of the boots but the pop of green on the bag is unexpected and the yellow lace trim is sweet.

Her nautical inspired outfit is so cute and put together!

I want these jeans! the slanted seaming is really flattering and the mix of motorcycle jacket and cowgirl boots is unexpected.

I envy how comfortable she looks! The toffee color scheme, moccasins and effortless hair come together for a great granny themed outfit!

These girls decided to grab a bite in the park and soak up the sun and they couldn't look more adorable doing so! Just a simple floral sundress and the orange bubble-hemmed trench go a long way.

Wonder if they plannede matching shoes, glasses and hair? They're even walking in step! Personally the outfits don't wow me but the seperates are great!

Such a pretty print and the lattice sandals are perfect for summer!

Quirky-cute from the knees up, but not too fond of the shoes. There's nothing really wrong with them...just something off about them in this particular outfit.

Love the bag!

Another one of my favorites! Just a pair of flats and a shift dress, but the yellow and rich pink combo propels it to a whole new level!

The pale gold shoes and drawstring detailing on the dress are simple and interesting. Love the supple leather bag as well!

I feel like I'm looking at a Gap ad. The perfect mix of casual and not a hair out of place!

Always a fan of soft knits and opaque tights!

This adorable dog was trying to eat all the skateboards!

The gold cocktail ring and flower in her hair soften her biker details.

Can you say J.Crew catalogue? In my opinion that's not a bad thing; personally I would've traded the flats for wedges and added some gold jewelry.

I love the tight leotard-like top and tights's almost like she just came from dance class and threw on some extras to leave the studio. Adorable!

Who knew chic could be so easy. just grab your favorite jeans, a pair of leather flip flops and an oversized top!

NO...that's all I'm going to say

Whimsical polka dots are never wrong!

Style genious or sheer geeky luck? Either way works!

The two-toned bag and pixie haircut make this look!
