Casual Layers On Waverly Place

West Village, NY

I lived on Waverly Place in the West Village for 2 years and every spring, the cherry blossom trees lining each side of my street would bloom in April.  The blossoms were huge and would only last a few weeks, but every time I walked out my door, they would take my breath away.  I can’t wait to head back to NYC next week and admire these trees which are hopefully in full bloom!  Spring in NYC is the best – and much like the blossoms, it’s very short lived so you’ve gotta appreciate every second of it!  When the weather finally warms up, everyone stays outside – strolling in their sandals and sundresses, filling up parks and cafes with outdoor seating.

Some of my favorite West Village restaurants with outdoor seating are; Morandi, Bluestone Lane, Rosemary’s, Hudson Clearwater, Sant Ambroeus, Barbuto, and Buvette.  Morandi has such good Italian food and is always full of fabulous people.  It’s kind of an “it” spot to go after work, but I love that it’s not “sceney” or try-too-hard, instead it’s cozy, classic and neighborhood-y.  Sant Ambroeus on a warm weekend afternoon for brunch is the best, and Barbuto is a great happy hour spot.  You can never go wrong with Rosemary’s and the food at Hudson Clearwater always impresses me – plus it’s a cute first date spot!

Since it’s still coat weather in the city, this reversible Banana Republic wool car coat is a great piece.  Sadly it’s sold out, but this one is super similarThis coat is slightly different since it’s more of a wool trench style, but I absolutely love it and think it would look GORG paired over a white shift dress.  Under my coat, I’m wearing an old cashmere V-neck sweater from Vince and these white L’Agence skinny jeans that have the perfect amount of stretch to them.

For accessories – I wore my FAVORITE brown suede booties from Joie.  They are 25% off today only with code FRIENDS and available in all sizes, so I highly suggest snapping them up to wear all year long.  They’re extremely comfortable, soft, and SO flattering on.  They elongate your legs instead of shorten (which a lot of booties tend to do) and you don’t need to break them in (thank goodness!!!)  You can also see how I’ve styled them here and here.
