We had just landed in Paris for our Veuve Clicquot adventure in the beautiful city of champagne: Reims, France. I’ve got a full rundown coming soon for you and I can’t wait to fill you in on all things CHAMPAGNE and take you on a private tour of the exclusive Hotel Du Marc. Talk about one magical, magical trip. From Paris we took a 1.5 hour drive to Reims and arrived just during magic hour. It was a sleepy Sunday afternoon, and I had to cure my jetlag with a good cup of coffee. Quiet little cafes and empty roads. Just the sounds of birds chirping by the ferris wheel. But it was just what we needed before what turned out to be a wild few days of literally popping bottles…but you know, with a certain je ne sais quoi. Our team of editors and photographers were in high spirits despite the fact that we all flew the longest flights into France from around the world. But all was okay as soon as we walked around Reims, for the sunlight in France somehow always bounces off the pale buildings into a gold hue that I just go gah-gah for and makes you forget any sort of jet lag that may me overtaking us. Bonjour!

When I see a burst of sunlight through my window in the morning, I can’t help but feel good and want to get dressed. New York City in the spring is totally magical, it’s so hard to pin-point the mood. It seems everyone was eating their lunch out in Madison Square Park this day. You just want to people watch, eat facing the street, and literally stop to smell the flowers. With the fresh new wave of energy hitting the city, I’ve been going for a lot more white denim, and of course, wearing the classic Kork-Ease platform sandal. The Lewy to be exact. I’m a huge fan 70′s inspired clogs with a cropped flare jumpsuit. It’s easy, classic, and just badass, especially with a little bit of stud action. Think of a more minimal Janis Joplin. That’s how I want to live my life. Killer shoes, a vintage coat from Mom’s closet, and loads of denim. It’s finally Friday and I’m gearing up for more time under the sun, scoping out the Dumbo flea, and laying out by the bridge. New York, I will always just love you.

Last night’s Coach 1941 event, celebrating Stuart Vever‘s latest collection screamed classic Americana. It was an event superbly put on with the wildflowers and meadow-like decor, but my favorite part about it all were the violinists frolicking in beautiful floral dresses throughout the party playing twists on today’s popular music. Bohemian with a touch of rock n’ roll is my favorite kind of combination. I snagged this look right off of the Coach runway. A leather mini, the best cowboy boots a girl could own, and what seems to be a simple t-shirt until you see the beautiful pattern around the neckline. This reversible bomber jacket was just the icing on the cake on my flirty yet cool outfit combination. Coach 1941 is when the free spirited nomad meets the New York City. Inspired by the surge of new music, the hustle of the city streets and the delicacy of nature that isn’t too far away. You can find me picking flowers at home by the ranch in California one day . . . . and then who knows, toughing it out in a good leather skirt or jacket on the NYC subway the next. Life is unexpected like that, and I love how Coach came out with something so refreshing yet still so on brand at the same time for this new spring collection.
