I hope everybody had a great weekend!  Or… are you enjoying another day off? (;

Last week I met up with a good friend I hadn’t seen for months.  She chose a lounge near her yoga class – just north of Houston St.; I seized the opportunity to make a return (impulse buy, sigh…) and admire the store windows on my way to dinner.

I love peeking at new arrivals and creative displays.  Plus, stores are making seductive little hints at Spring – sleeveless tops, shorts, lighter fabrics, open toe sandals, and (more) anchors! YES!!

Well, at least Prada was in winter mode (sort of) with long luxurious coats.  But I loved that they paired them with dramatic silver platform sandals.  Club Monaco showed pretty patterns, sweet skirts, and light-colored layers.

My favorite window was Bloomingdale’s - bright prints… slick textures… hot pants and platforms…  LOVE!  (Pretty additions to my fashion sketchbook!)  I’m not the only one dying to get out of my booties and into some sandals… am I!?
