The Blues

Having the blues doesn't always have to be a bad thing.  Even though NYC has been beat up by some serious snowstorms and freezing temps this winter, I'm already thinking about Spring.  Well, Spring and monochromatic looks. The pieces above work together to create the perfect outfit for an early Spring day-enough coverage to keep you warm without outerwear but light enough to keep you from sweating indoors.  I like this look so much that you may or may not see it again some time in the near future in a different fashion ;).
