Today was the hottest day I’ve spent in NYC to date. Not normally a girl to wear anything very short, I soon changed my tune when I felt how muggy it was.
Pro Tip: if you are like me, a little self conscious whilst wearing anything teeny tiny, wear biker shorts. no, not the padded ones silly! If the breeze finally decides to show up and your skirt picks up, jokes on everyone else because you’ll have on some sort of under armor skin short.
One of my favorite things in the world is mixing high fashion with vintage pieces. I would never say I do this to avoid looking “dated”, because a huge chunk of my clothing is over 40 years old. The Dior fusion sneaker is a shoe that I’ve been thinking of for some time now and when I paired it with this vintage 60′s dress, it was like a dream from heaven. The pink from both matched! Some people might tell you not to get too matchy-matchy. I, on the other hand, love it. There is something deeply satisfying to me when I buy something and the color matches perfectly to something else I own. It’s almost like meeting a clothing soulmate, and you were always meant to be a “match”.
Fanning myself because I feel like I’m melting. It’s hard to be so “glamourous” when it’s 95 degrees.
