I wore this wine-hued number to run a few errands and for a casual stroll through Central Park - the weather was lovely and I, of course, couldn't resist! Nothing like some sparkly, luxe accessories to dress up an otherwise bland outfit. My go-to pieces? This over-the-top rose gold Michael Kors Runway watch (the bigger of the two sizes), a simple yet super rich David Yurman-esque bangle by Cosy, and a rhinestone collar necklace (one of my favorite Forever 21 finds to date!).

In other news, this weekend I'll be heading to Brooklyn for Cosy's handbag collection launch party - an event benefiting Gilda's Club, a nonprofit organization that helps families affected by cancer. I couldn't think of a better reason to come together for an evening of fashion, shopping, and networking. Bloggers: be sure to contact me for details, if you haven't heard from me already.
