Wimbledon championship, simply called wimbledon, is the oldest and the most prestigious tennis tournament in the world.

After so many giants have been slain on the center court last year’s wimbledon, this year it seems like all the top players still going strong excepts Serena Williams surprised lost to France’s Aliza Cornet who sent Serena Williams tumbling out of Wimbledon’s third round, earliest lost since 2005.

Of course there are always some drama at these tennis events. We heard a rumor that there is rebellion going on at the All England Club. Players, particularly the ladies, are furious over the crackdown over non-white clothing. The uptight tennis folkes in England amped up the pressure by forcing players to wear white undergarments.

” I believe some of the girls have been told to go back and changed their bras and tops because they have slight color on them. Some of the girls didn’t have suitable bras and had to go without them. It has gone crazy. ” said former wimbledon champion Pat Cash according to The Daily Mail.

SPRING HAS SPRUNG ———SORT OF

News

Spring-has-Sprung

Despite the ongoing sinister temperatures and freak snow squalls that mother nature keeps throwing at us, New Yorker’s are proving two things; 1) that we are resilient and 2) we can survive a polar vortex. However, enough is enough! As we are on the cusp of April, collectively this city (mother nature not included) has decided that Spring has, in fact, Sprung. We are ready for warm colors, outdoor activities, shorter hemlines, and to get back to enjoying the city we love so much. Check out our spring must haves and to-do list below. The seasons are changing with our wardrobes and we are embracing every second of it!

CENTRAL PARK : A TIME FOR FLOWERS AND FRIENDS

sheapsmedow If your anything like us, the first semi-warm chance you get to ditch the indoors for the outdoors- you do. And what better place to congregate with your friend, then in Sheep’s Meadow. The lawn that ultimately turns into an endless day of  picnics, chatter, frisbee and spring bliss is the perfect way to welcome spring back New York.  The best part about Central Park is that you never know were your afternoon will take you; exploring the rambles, drinks at the boat house , watching the tiny sailboats! All in all we cannot wait for the carefree weekends that spring promises!

“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” John Lennon

EXPLORING THE NEIGHBORHOODS: FROM BRUNCH TO SHOPPING

BRUNCHSPRING

Less bulk means more freedom! As we toss our down filled coats aside and throw on our new patterned pumps, New Yorkers take to the streets of Manhattan with a hungry appetite for social fun. Each spring relatively territorial neghbourhood loyalists venture around manhattan and to the outside burrows to take in the new restaurants and shops in hopes of finding there new “gem” of the season. Wether exploring the open window eating concepts in meatpacking to find your new favorite brunch spot like Beaumarchais or grabbing an afternoon coffee in soho at Gasoline Alley- the city is your playground.

“Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.” John Lennon

BRIGHT COLORS AND BOLD PATTERNS

EXPLORETHECITYBLOG

With warm weather comes bright color and bold patterns. We see unconventional pairings that are more risky then our fall/winter uniforms. Ultimately, we see people re-examining what it means to be express themselves through clothing. I think its quit special that first warm days of the year when you look up and down Lexington Avenue and see pastels and pokadots dressed with the smiles of those wearing them. Fashion is art and this spring we are thinking light and bright.

“Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.” John Lennon

ART AND THE OUTDOORS: MUSEUMS AND CULTURE

METROOFTOP

The start of spring is a direct translation to the start of outdoor party’s and art happenings around the city. We covet our nights sipping martinis on the MET rooftop. What better way to take in central park and its surrounding skyline then amongst art sculptures hundreds of feet in the air? This season The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden  is welcoming Dan Graham’s installation. One of Graham’s unique steel and glass pavilions will be featured. We cant wait for sensory overload in this visually complex environment!

“Art is not a thing- it is a way.”  Elbert Hubbard

HOLIDAYS TO LOOK FORWARD TO THIS SPING

LOVE

While the sheer joy of warm weather is reason enough to celebrate. We cant help but be a little excited for all of the fun holidays that fall in this quarter of the year. There is April Fools Day, Easter, Cinco de Mayo, Earth day , Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Memorial Day and Flag day — just to name a few! However you spend your spring I hope you enjoy the beautiful season and all the new beginnings it brings…….Oh and don’t forget to stop and smell the flowers :)!!
