Oh, I'm just day dreaming about finally moving back - can't wait! As for outfitting a cool spring day in NYC: you can't go wrong with a cute sweater, bright whites and textural flats. For accessories, a cross-body bag is a must for city wandering (at least in my book) best paired with clean statement earrings and a classic scarf. Voila.
