Summer bardot

Bardot or "off the shoulder" tops were everywhere this summer. I had a love-hate relationship with them. On one hand, I never had to wear a bra - it was the most comfortable thing ever - because that flap (which isn't on all bardot tops) covered my chest really well. On the other hand, I felt kind of naked because I'm a t-shirt and leggings kind of gal and with off the shoulder tops, so much skin is exposed! One gust of wind and oops, a stranger might have seen too much. A friend of mine also noted that she felt like they wouldn't stay up (for smaller chested women).  
What's your opinion?

3 Days in Philly

My boyfriend and I went to Philly with another couple for three days. We took wayy too many photos at Elfreth's Alley, a picturesque residential street from colonial times, and at the Philly Magic Gardens. Our poor boyfriends are blessed to have us. I think we took pictures for 3 hours in total LOL. Besides that, Philly was a small, very walkable city - a nice change from the fast pace city of NYC. 
On another note - those Adidas classics sneakers are everywhere this summer. As a kid, I had a friend who always wore them. I thought they were hideous. Now, I think they are so cute! But too basic. Luckily, I randomly found these slip on Adidas classic-esque sneakers. They are a fun play on the classics and I've only seen two other people wear these. They have a black/white version too - my cousin said it looks better,
What do you think?

To warmer days ahead

Hello! Its been a while. In the time I've been not blogging, it has been excruciatingly cold in New York City, just in time for fashion week. Now that it has heated back up to an abnormally warm February, I felt inspired to start doing fashion posts again and doing things for ME, not for other people. My style has evolved a lot since I've last posted about fashion. I like to think I've matured and taken on a more minimalistic approach.

I have been so out of the swing of blogging and fashion photography that I forgot to show the shoes!! AH, you'll just have to wait until the next post :)
