MODE MONDAY: SPRINGTIME IN JANUARY

[jacket: kenneth cole (c/o lucky mag) / jeans: gap / shirt & necklace: banana republic (40% off sale) / cuff: ann taylor (40% off sale) / flats: j.crew (now 50% off) / bag: old cole haan / hat: old brooklyn industries]

Just when I thought Old Man Winter finally had a stronghold on NYC, Mother Nature sent us a little reprieve.  Temps reached mid 50s and the sun smiled down all weekend long.  It’s hard to believe there was snow on the ground last weekend!

It feels much cooler today but still smells like April and the forecast indicates we should be enjoying mild weather for at least the next week or so. You certainly won’t hear any complaints from me.  Jacket weather is my favorite.  This is pretty much as good as it gets for New York in January.

It was so nice to be at the park again with Bubba.  He doesn’t do well cooped up in the apartment and last week’s rain had him bursting with energy.  He came home yesterday from his new gymnastics season at Chelsea Piers and asked to go to Long Island to visit my parents, so we drove out for dinner and ended up watching the SAG Awards.  As I get older, Hollywood/celebrities become less and less interesting to me but I do love a good Fashion Police and seeing what access to the best hair, make-up, and clothes can produce.  Did you watch?  How lovely was Emma Stone in that little McQueen number?

If you’re linking up with Monday Mingle, Momtrends is hosting the linky this week and giving one participant some fun goodies from American Eagle.

Have a glamorous week!

    I love your look! It’s so fresh and clean! The jacket is my fave! And I’m loving the weather outside right now too… so much better than the rain last week. Ugh. I wanted to link up this week, but forgot to get a good enough picture of my outfit over the weekend. I bought these new wedges that I love so maybe next week, I’ll link.

    You look so lovely in these pictures, momma. Love this look for you. And yes… I’ll take this weather ANY DAY. Don’t kill me for saying this though… I just want ONE big snowstorm for the year. Just one. I feel like our winter has been so mild and I want to have a snowball fight. I know, don’t hurt me :p

    Totally missed the SAG awards, but I watch for the red carpet alone :)

    You look great Jill! I love the moto jacket and also the bag! It’s like April weather in Chicago…which can mean 1 thing…snow is coming. I just don’t trust it to get this warm this early!

  1. […] An event wouldn’t be complete without a selfie, now would it?  Why I couldn’t just ask someone to take my picture, we’ll never know.  The only thing I wore that’s current is J. Crew’s Cafe Capri pants in a fun red color.  The coat is a vintage mink that I inherited from my grandmother, the blouse is an old Uniqlo that I’ve featured before, the clutch is Ann Taylor, the heels are J. Crew, and the necklace is Banana. […]
