Sometimes all it takes is one picture to start the inspiration coming through and this picture was the one for me. I told you that I am headed to NYC next month with my friend Sara and we have been busy discussing our itinerary and pinning where we want to go. Sara pinned this picture last week and I fell in love instantly. I don’t know if it’s the color scheme or the name of the bakery but I can’t wait to check this place out. This picture also immediately inspired this outfit and I have been busy thinking of what I am packing for the trip. I am so happy polka dots are back this season, this is one trend I have always loved. I can honestly still remember a favorite navy polka dot shirt I bought from the GAP in high school. As soon as I saw this green one from Mango, I knew it would be perfect. I’ve been looking for some  denim that was a little cropped and had a heavy flare and these from H&M are exactly what I wanted. I will say they do run small, I ordered the next size up so they weren’t too snug. White shoes are big for Spring as well and although I wouldn’t normally wear this color of shoe, I am loving it right now. There are so many great options but I really like the idea of a white pump to go with jeans and dresses. This Nine West pair from Nordstrom is true to size with a pointed toe and the heel is a great height. For two years now I’ve been looking for a pair of sunglasses that I love and still haven’t found anything, I even looked when we went to San Francisco back in September. My black Celine are really one of my favorite pairs I’ve ever owned so I am thinking of maybe buying those in brown and being done with the search. Mansur Gavriel just released their bags for Spring last week and I am obsessing over this top handle one. It reminds me of a classic lady bag and something Jackie O would carry, I just love the sophistication and simplicity of the bag.
