Happy Tuesday! This is a slightly different post than usual and is lengthier and more personal than usual. But it’s meaningful and has to do with my love of movement, yoga and dance. Read more
I spent most of Saturday walking around the city, so it was imperative that I was comfortable all day. I opted for my oldest and most comfortable pair of jeans. The only problem? They’ve always been too long, which resulted in a ragged hem. So, to avoid stepping on my already-too-long jeans, I decided to turn them into a sort of boyfriend jean. I simply rolled up the hems in a careless way, instead of folding them neatly, which I felt gave off a more relaxed, casual look. I think I am going to use this trick more often…
One of my favorite coffee shops, Think, which I stopped by after yoga and treated myself to an iced Spanish latte.
Brunch in the East Village at National.
I took this photo on my way to yoga in the morning, but later that evening I went back to the theater to meet my friend Liz to see a series of short films. A friend of hers directed one of the films, which was great, but they were all really good. It was my first time experiencing the the Tribeca Film Festival and I had a fantastic time. (Thanks Liz!)
***Weekend Wear Part 3…coming up later today! xoxo
Here in New York, the weather is currently trying its damndest to transition into fall, seeing that it’s almost mid-September. But, at times it gets confused and reverts back to its humid ways, making us all de-layer and continue to don summery dresses and open-toed sandals for yet another week. Don’t get me wrong, I love summer and warm days, but I also love fall, and layering. Which, brings me to the topic at hand. On my way out of yoga the other evening, I snapped a picture of this jacket shown here in a Gap ad, which is very similar to one that I recently purchased on sale from Banana Republic.
I checked online to see if it was still available, but had no luck. However, I did find the short-sleeved peacoat online from the Gap (shown above), and think it’s the perfect item to wear during the changing of seasons. It incorporates my favorite thing to do with clothing, which I mentioned above but will say again, and that is layering! The great thing about this style of jacket is, it leaves you just unbundled enough allowing you to escape that bogged-down-feeling of a winter coat, and gives you a lightly layered, autumn-y feel instead. I love the way the shirt extends out from the jacket’s short sleeves adding an interesting dynamic to this amended peacoat. So, throw this baby on over a long-sleeve button down or tee, and effortlessly transition into the fall season. The combination of the two will provide you with just the right amount of warmth needed for that perfect, crisp fall day. And, with that said, I wish you all a happy Friday and a merry weekend!
