Tied up

I loved this top as soon as I laid eyes on it. Just the right amount of femininity and skin revealing. There are long slits at the arms as well leading to beautiful masculine cuffs. And the best part? The material doesn't wrinkle.

Wardrobe basics: the almond-toe black boot

It's been a while since I've put out one of these wardrobe basics posts, but this year flew by so quickly that I didn't even realize it. I recently snatched up these boots after they were marked down 60%, and I've been living in them since. They are at that sweet spot of a heel that's chunky and low enough to walk in all day. I also love the slight pointed toe, "almond" if you will. I also recently cycled out my Acne Loma boots because they were too aggressively pointy for my tastes and started to feel a void in my closet as they were my main black walking boot.

Here are some other great options at all price points:
-Ok, this is me just trolling, because these boots are the price of a used car. Terrifying. But if you have the budget and want real alligator and not just "alligator or croc-effect", I suppose that's the price to pay.
-This pair is a great dupe for the Altuzarra ones I picked up, and they're also on sale! They have a square toe, which I've also really been into recently.
-Well, these are SICK (and also on sale). I love how they look like traditional wingtip brogues from above but totally aren't from the side.
-Your best bet under $250. I'm all about that extra chunky heel.
-If you want an even lower heel, but not a completely flat boot, I like the simplicity of this pair from my favorite sneaker brand.

Other details: Saint Laurent varsity jacket // Assembly New York tee // AG jeans (these are probably my favorite jeans ever and they are on sale!) // Loewe bag and charm

Auberge du soleil

This post comes over six months late, but it felt fitting as we've had the dreariest dark days in NY recently. And when the sun already sets so early now, the grayness is just extra depressing. I came across a folder of these images from my trip Northern California on my desktop and wanted to share because the colors and light made me happy. I hope they'll also transport you to a place of warmth and sunshine.
