Time to whip out those trouser shorts! It feels like spring in NYC! There’s nothing better than just spending a day exploring the city by foot then finding yourself horizontal on the grass in the park closing your eyes. I live for days like these. Slow days. Sunny days. Happy days. Even better when you’ve got boots like these to go with it.
A look that is a bit too large on me but just works. I snagged this vintage Givenchy men’s blazer at a Beverly Hills estate sale during my last work trip to LA. Paired it with creams and whites, and voila, I’ve got myself a Diane Keaton approved spring ensemble. Something casual and cool to run to the deli in. I’m staying on the sunny side of the street these days.
Currently wearing this Frame x the Carlyle hotel baseball cap just about everywhere. I can’t wait to show you Team Suarez’s shoot for that campaign on VOGUE. One of my favorites really. And honestly, I get stopped and asked about this cap every time on the street. It’s that classic! I wear it on off duty days in the city, or here, with a form fitting ribbed dress by my friends at Self-Portrait. I’m girly, but I’m not that girly.
There’s something special about the 60’s. A time and style that can never be recreated. Team Suarez and I took inspiration and gave it a modern feel right here in my home of Dumbo, Brooklyn. We’re talking teased hair, black smoky eye shadow, and the perfect oversized coat. I am always one to time travel to the past when it comes to getting dressed. How about you?
