Rachel Bilson
has been island-hopping as of late. Her first stop? The island of Manhattan. The "O.C" actress was in town last week to promote her latest project, before heading off to warmer climes (Barbados) with actor beau Hayden Christensen.

During her Big Apple tour, Bilson stopped in at Fox Studios wearing this springy ensemble. While the season of re-birth is officially in full calendrical swing here in Gotham City, you wouldn't have known it from the temperatures last week -- Mother Nature just hadn't caught on yet. Luckily, the actress clearly knows how to put together a transitional look.

Her rose-hued J Brand skinnies, smartly paired with a gauzy, dusty-pink top and nude platform pumps are springy and feminine. But Bilson dealt with the unseasonable chill by adding a heavier, utilitarian parka. We love her mix of colors here -- soft feminine pastels with a tomboy army green.
