The Brooklyn Bridge park is one of my favorite places to relax. I love getting to sit right on the rocks, so close to the water that my shoes nearly get wet. It’s just so cinematic that I cannot stop looking over to the other side. The views of Manhattan are so spectacular from here, day or night, even with all the clouds that have been hanging over the city these days. Luckily, the city was much cooler this weekend making it somewhat okay to bring along my vintage denim jacket. Worn with a super cool backless lace top and rust colored shorts, it worked. For once, LAYERING and LONG SLEEVES? Okay, maybe not entirely, but it worked just this once! And yet again, I’m sporting my favorite summer accessory, RED LIPS. This time, I’ve been wearing Estée Lauder’s Red Velvet lipstick, which literally feels velvety smooth when I put it on and most importantly STAYS ON. I’m so obsessed and recommending it to all of my friends. Even during an entire day out on the town, surviving the occasional downpour of rain mixed with heat, these eyeshadows and lipsticks never wear off. I think my life is saved hehe! Okay and just so you know, the scent of the city mixed with rain is something I’ve never really experienced until now…it’s well, interesting, reminds me of a wet dog, and OH OH lucky lucky me, I seem to always forget my umbrella before stepping out and so ended my day running home in the rain, SOAKING. But I have to admit, it felt so liberating and was actually super fun to run from the water, home, with a herd of umbrella-less people screaming at the top of our lungs. Totally priceless.

    I adore this outfit and I am already planning on replicating it when I (I as in me and the rest of australia/southern hem) get my long awaited turn at summer!
    And i am just thinking of the wet city smell, but I guess different cities smell different! haha

    it is really relaxing. the other day i grabbed some sushi and just sat by the water eating, taking it all in. i’ll be going upstate for college and looking at the city and bridge i thought- I’m really going to miss this. ive recently just ventured into wearing a red lip myself. thank you for the recommendation!
