Easy Going

For casual strolls through the city, comfortable casual wear is mandated, (or at least I think so).  I wore a (breathable) linen top paired with a mermaid-silhouette skirt to add a coy, yet flirty vibe. I also carried this gorgeous clutch from Coach. I am in love with the the mix of contrasting leathers giving me just enough room to carry the essentials.

To illustrate how my personal style has changed when I look back...I would say that I am almost always looking for something easy-going, comfortable, and versatile. I've become more vigilant towards my clothing expenditures. There are so many things that I've worn once before they hibernate (for forever) into the depths of my closet. As much as I love (and appreciate) the new trends and permutations of fashion, I think it's more satisfying knowing that I can wear something more than once for many years- without having to worrying about an approaching expiration date... like sour, spoiled milk.

It was the perfect day for some sweet lemonade and a stroll by the seaside with Moti. The view from Brooklyn looking into the city is especially remarkable. I can come here time and time again, and it will never get old. Let me just take this all in... There's something in the New York air that makes sleep useless; perhaps it's because your heart beats more quickly here than elsewhere.

The Met

The last time I visited The Met was probably to do one of my art history assignments during the school year, so it was nice to drop by this past weekend with my friend Marina. Not only is this museum filled with a massive number of beautiful artwork and sculptures, but the interior design of the building itself is magnificent! As a New Yorker, I always thought doing 'touristy' things is overrated. I also always tell myself  that I'll do these activities later - not fully appreciating the wonderful places I have access to at my very own finger tips. And it was then that I decided that one of my goals for this summer is to be an excursionist in my own city!

Not only does this European art-inspired skirt suits this occasion perfectly, but it went admirably with this baby blue tee from Coach.  I am entirely engrossed with the color and the light-weight feel making it comfortably worn - yes, even in the hotter temperatures!
