Is it the freedom from multiple layers of clothing, the infusion of color everywhere, picnics in the park, the possibilities of long weekend getaways or lovers canoodling on park benches (le sigh)? For me, arrival of summer is the perfect blend of all of the above. Growing up in India and living in a constant baking summer, it took me a while to come back around to the

But the second I think it is time to put my coats away, another cold wave sweeps into the city and we get a dash of snow. On a cold sunday, I met some friends for brunch around Central Park and wore this menswear inspired look.

I'm one of those people who is always in a frenzied New York state of mind - going a million miles a minute, often leaving very little time for reflection.
