Either way, the look will be spot on, guaranteed. They're $450.00 from Alexander Wang.

Spring has sprung, and it seems that all my eyes want to see are Easter egg-inspired milky, neutral shades of color. Usually at this time of year the light gets a bit more intense, and after several months of low winter light my eyes crave some bright colors, like coral or golden yellow or even hot pink. But not so this year, I'm stuck on light grey. So off I went on my dove-finding mission. Here are some lovely sneakers to pair with those cropped white jeans or wide legged pants, all in shades of grey. Enjoy!

Calatrava's Oculus pavilion is gleaming, glorious and great! @PATHTrain #OculusNYC

Santiago Calatrava's multi-billion dollar transit hub has finally opened in Lower Manhattan, and it is breathtaking! The Westfield Mall shops which will line the perimeter of the oval-shaped Oculus pavilion are not open yet, but it is virtually impossible to take a bad picture in this place.

The gleaming white structure is bathed in natural light which streams through a long, curved skylight, and the luminescence of the Italian marble-clad floor makes the whole space look like it is covered in a sheet of ice. If you are in NYC, get yourself down here and enjoy one of the world's most beautiful – and functional – public spaces.
