This morning I went through usual email check and blog reads, when I came across a video made by Coach featuring the Kristin Collection and 5 New York style bloggers (including What I Wore's Jessica Schroeder). When I first saw this video a month ago and viewed the collection, I fell in love with the yellow wristlet, which seemed perfect for spring! However I was responsible and held off on the purchase because the timing wasn't right. But being the thoughtful individual she is and knowing it was on my mind, Kristen bought it as a surprise and then sent it to me as an early birthday gift! Don't I have a great best friend?
The wristlet has been in my possession a little over a week now and it's already seen a lot of Saint John. It's been out to dinner, uptown to the bar, gone to coffee and came shopping with me. Since this city tends to be a little foggy, it's not a bad idea to carry a little sunshine in hand. Since the sun had finally come out and it actually felt like spring, I decided to match my other accessories to the season!
1. Michael Kors sunglasses
(TJ Max- New Hampshire)
2. Leaf earrings
(Splurge- Park Lane Mall in Halifax)
3. Sterling silver rose necklace
(previous birthday gift from Jess & Shannon 2 years ago)
4. Green Samsung Reclaim cell phone
5. Green Inglot nail polish for my toes
(cosmetic store in Montreal)
6. Yellow Coach wristlet from Kristin Collection
(early b-day gift from Kristen this year)
The above, plus I'll show you my other 2 purchases from the sale at Je Suis Prest on Thursday.
The DEPT grey shrug and purple Jack BB Dakota dress (finished off with a pair of black flats from Aldo):
Ben and I hopped in the car, headed to the mall and then up the hill to Starbucks (by random, my receipt printed an online survey request with the reward of a free drink for next time...then, for some reason, the espresso machines (both) were on the fritz and for the wait they kindly gave me a coupon for another free drink!)
We then drove uptown to Vogue Optical and he helped me to pick out a new pair of glasses and prescription sunglasses.
And finally, we stopped by On The Vine to pick up food for supper, as we were planning a BBQ!
As the sun started to tuck behind the clouds again, Katie came over for a double Twilight feature with the BBQ as an intermission!
