Street Style, Brooklyn Flea

This is the best idea to stay cool on a hot day. A fan- yeah, it's never dawned me on either to carry one. But it's so simple, and, not gonna lie, it looks kind of awesome with this girl's outfit.
Like a 1930's debutante that got lost somewhere in the Dust Bowl for months on end and she's having to make do.
At least that's where my mind went when I saw this girl wandering at the Brooklyn Flea.

Upper East Side

Twelve little girl in two straight lines...
Right by the Met and the Central Park.

I have a strange affinity for uniforms. Perhaps it was because I had to wear uniforms (even though I hated them at the time. You would, too, because it was in high school.) But there is something very minimalist about them, these remind me of the Jil Sanders collaboration with Uniqlo.

More minimalism in the Upper East Side-the cut of the shirt and the details (like those rings) really make the outfit the wearer's own.

Seersucker, New Orleans

Somewhere on Magazine street...

I went back home to New Orleans for a week and somewhat forgot to update my blog. I clearly took photos and had the intention of writing this post sooner, but alas time escaped me. That happens in New Orleans, you get on New Orleans time. You'll do things when you do them and everything moves as slow as molasses.
My friends and I were eating po-boys on Magazine when, out of the corner of my eye, I spotted this man. He works at one of the vintage stores, Miss Claudia's.
I am a sucker for a boater and seersucker suit or rather, very put together menswear.
Southern menswear is like that. Everything is totally put together, with the right accessories, such as belts, handkerchiefs, hats, watches, etc.

Dear New York,
Remember last week when you were sunny and warm?
I sure did. And so did these lovely people.
Dreary, rainy weather gtfo.

Street Style, Lafayette and Washington Square Park

Spotted- Designers Coco & Breezy
They are probably the nicest people I've ever photographed. I love how they've styled themselves and how their looks compliment one another but are also pretty different outfits.

I was hanging out in Washington Square Park with my friends, people watching, this girl entered my peripheral vision. The first thing I noticed her patterns and I love how she mixed all of the different striped fabrics.

Spotted on a Lovely Day in the Lower East Side

I love how this is considered a super causal look. Slouchy jeans, comfy jacket, and then some insane shoes. Its a look, for sure, but a super cute look. I don't know if I could ever wear those shoes around all day, but I gotta give this person kudos.

Look quirky and comfortable these ladies look. This is sort of what I try to achieve every day I get dressed and yet, I never look as put together as they do. It's good to have goals to aspire to. Such as goal 1- dress in a artistic but vaguely professional yet secretly incredibly comfortable outfit. Check.
