In My Purse {Early Spring}


(L -> R) Furla Candy Bag, Tolstoy & Dostoevsky Books,  Miu Miu Glitter Sunnies (super limited in pink!!!), DKNY x Baublebar.com Earrings, iPhone, Miu Miu Wallet (Valentine's Collection), Givenchy Illuminator, Benefit BadGal Lash, Nars Lipstick in "Schiap," Agent Provocatuer Lip Balm, Keys, Lulu Guinness (a gift from Miss B!) & The Webster Keyrings, Business Cards (via Moo.com), Altoids, Orbit, Metrocard, Bliss Hand Cream, Derek Cardigan Eyeglasses, USB Stick, Moleskine Notebook, Art Print by Leigh Viner.

I'm definitely the type of person whose moods are severely influenced by the weather (I attribute this to 18-years of growing up in sunny Southern California). While I love New York, I'm almost always wishing the weather was bright and sunshiney, (something I seldom admit, especially as I constantly have to reassure myself that the weather "isn't so bad.") The blooming Cherry Blossoms and Magnolias throughout the city, the extra hours of daylight, and the brightened up wardrobes are making me really happy.
So, it's April, we're just 10-days shy of my birthday (thus some of the self-treats above), I'm toting books around to catch quick breaks in New York City's many parks, I've got a super-practical and cute Furla Candy Bag (waterproof! lightweight! awesome!), and maybe, just maybe, there's an extra pep in my step these days...

  1. I love, love, love this post Nicolette! I feel exactly the same way about Spring; it makes me REALLY happy and all I can think about is pink and blossoms and blue skies. I never realised just HOW magical it was until I moved to the northern hemisphere and experienced a proper winter (winter in Australia lasts precisely 2.5 months and doesn't get below 10c).

    Also, and I realise I am ridiculously greedy for pink and glitter (I mean, how much is it acceptable for a 29 year old to own?!), but there is nothing in this picture I don't want. ESPECIALLY those insanely good Miu Miu glasses/wallet!!

    Sending you so much love from Cambridge!

  5. Such cute things. I'm the same about the weather, I get really down when it's rainy. But, to be honest, I hate the heat and too much light as I have blue/green eyes and they're quite sensitive. Maybe we have that seasonal syndrome? ahah

  11. I know exactly what you mean about weather influencing your moods! Having grown up in Mexico City and subsequently living in CT (boarding school) and then London there was def some seasonal fluctuation!

  16. AHHH I have those Miu Miu sunnies in red! And I asked the sales man if he thought they were a little bit "loud"...  obviously he said yes... so, obviously, I bought them :)  I love them!!

  17. The pink sunglasses are amazing. I've been vacillating back and forth on them, because I already have red, gold, black and silver sunglasses, but I don't have a pink pair. Which store did you pick them up from, if you don't mind me asking?

  18. I grew up in New York and I definitely feel loads better when the weather is bright and sunny. Also, I love those pink sunglasses!

  20. i hate those posts because i am completely not interested in what is in a persons bag! expect when Nicolette Mason does it, first of all, i want to take a sneak peek in those girly gorgeous it-things and second of all, it is so well photographed! i am completely infot the plastic fantastic bags! I have a Delvaux one, the brillant chaperon rouge. It is a Belgian brand but you can check it out at barneys. in love with the glasses, they are just made for you! can't wait to see what you will get for your b-day!!!
