Impulse buys don't always turn out well but I've no regrets picking up this China blue scarf at the airport in Taiwan or this leather bag from Beacon's Closet on 13th. I've developed a bit of a habit collecting scarves and small bags. Though I try to maintain variety, Asian prints and floral styles have been calling my name.

Now I have to switch gears in my rambling to say - visit the High Line! It is stunning in the summer. You must see with your own eyes, but I would call it an absolutely incredible combination of flora and steel. It all magically falls in place too with my efforts to play more with mixing prints and colors.

The types of moments I love most? When two seemingly incongruous elements come together to create the unexpected extraordinary.
