For a few brief hours on Saturday morning, there was a hint of Spring in the air. I used the window as an excuse to wander some of my favorite streets in the West Village, chai latte and hydrangeas in hand, debuting a couple of spring pieces that I’ve been (impatiently) waiting to wear. Of course, then it started to rain and I tucked them back into my closet. But for those brief hours, all was right in the world.
I’m all for the fact that denim skirts have made a valiant return to fashion in the past couple of years. I admittedly already own 2 knee length button front versions, but when I saw this zip front miniskirtversion I figured it was just different enough to justify the purchase. And since you can never go wrong with a ‘jeans and tee’ kind of look – I added this white t-shirt with bell sleeves. P.S. I’m calling it now.. dramatic sleeves are the new ‘off the shoulder’ for this Fall.
At this point I’ve talked about how awful this New York weather is to anyone who will listen. My co-workers, my building’s super, the lady in the checkout line of the grocery store, all of you.. it’s truly become exhausting. So I’ll spare you and instead end the week with this easy as 1,2,3 outfit.
I’m not kidding when I say that after seeing 5 uninterrupted days of sunshine in the forecast (after what feels like a lifetime of cold, dreary days here in New York) – I ran out and bought a new sun hat. Luckily, this wide brim one was less than the cost of lunch in this town and (if the sun can keep the pattern up) then I’ll be getting plenty of wear out of it.
Friday! We made it! These first 5 weeks of 2016 have sort of wiped me out work-wise and as we lead up to NYFW I don’t see things slowing down. And while I’m lucky enough to enjoy my job, I’d be lying if I said it doesn’t leave me dreaming of a beach vacation and a nice large cocktail at the end of most weeks. In the meantime, I’ll take a casual Friday outfit like this one to celebrate making it through another busy week. And maybe still a nice large cocktail (like this one).
