Hey guys! I'm in transit right now to Berlin, but wanted to share some pretty images with you. Deep navy is one of my favorite shades and, I think, a much more modern alternative to black.

Training starts tomorrow for my running season and I am very glad it does. I need some sort of distraction and this may just be the ticket. I jumped this year to the Intermediate Marathon training program and I think it is going to kick my a$$. I don't think I am ready for that much mileage but I will give it my best effort. Just thinking that my first long run is this Saturday and it is a 9 miler is already sending my legs into panic mode. Oy!

I caught up with my handsome friend Michael from Anastasia and Duck over a yummy vegetarian lunch at Mildred's when I was in London. He was wearing a Neil Barrett coat, Balenciaga jumper, Topman trousers, 3.1 Philip Lim clutch, and Nonnative sunglasses and I just had to street style him, of course! Michael always looks amazing! I love everything that he is wearing, but I am especially crazy about that coat. Can I borrow that please? PS--Feel free to follow him on Twitter for some witty banter - he never disappoints!
