{April Showers.....}

You know what they say, April Showers bring May Flowers.....As NYC finally embraces warmer climates in the next coming weeks, it is inevitable that your weatherman may forecast a few showers along the way as we begin to prep for flower season. 

As I mentioned LY in my Spring Essentials post, a classic Trench Coat is a must have item for the season. Sport it on your morning commute to help with the brisker climates on the way to the office. Plus, who doesn't want to look uber chic when they're suddenly caught in a torrential downpour? I know I do. Check out my favorites below, which one are you eyeing?

{Janelle Monáe}

When I first was introduced to Janelle Monáe, it was when she penned her vocal chops on Fun's "We Are Young" anthem. Pepsi's latest ad campaign for the World Cup, has tapped the grandeur song paired with Monáe's pop goodness. The cover of David Bowie's classic anthem is jammed packed with big synths and drums. Take a listen below. Will you be adding the classic rock song to your list of favorite anthems this Spring?

The Mighty Bulldog

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9

For those of you that know me, you know that obsessed is an understatement when it comes to English bulldogs. Last year, I wasn't quite ready to jump on the apartment dog bandwagon and therefore, I picked up this little gem (named him Animal ) to tide me over until I was fully ready for that massive commitment. It seems that everywhere I look these days, my favorite pup is popping up on clothing, decor, and even shoes. So before I'm ready to share 5B with a another critter, I'll be eyeing these gems. Are bulldogs your favorite too? What is your favorite dog?

{Wardrobe Provided by: Mad Men}

I am super excited for the season 7 return of Mad Men this Sunday at 10/9c on AMC.  Although I will be sad once the series finally ends this year, I cannot wait to see how the story lines unfold and where all the characters will end up. Last week, AMC posted character photos to get the devoted fans ready for the premiere. If you are like me and looking for ways to keep yourself occupied until then, I thought I'd play a little game and round up all of the character's fashion and try to decide which one I embody most. I think I've got the personality and ambition of Peggy yet the fashionista savvy characteristics of Megan. Which female character do you embody? Are you more of a sex pistol Joan or a modern 1960s housewife Betty? Take a look below and decide.

As I mentioned earlier, the Girls soundtrack this year really cranked it up a notch. First we heard this delightful tune from the infamous and adorable Jenny Lewis. And now Beck's got a jam too. Thank goodness, because it has been ages and we all have been anticipating new tunes to his long awaited follow-up from 2008's Modern Guilt. His new single "Blue Moon" makes me want to get into my car and drive down PCH with the windows open (ugh I wish) or better yet, take my bike out along the Hudson when the weather gets warmer. Hurry up Spring, for now this one's on repeat on my commute to the office. What do you think?
