(end of) summer in the city

oversized black top + denim shorts + booties

oversized black top + denim shorts + booties

Boy it's hot this week. Where were these temps in July and August when every night called for pants and a light jacket? Why wouldn't summer show up when I'm ready for boots? I hate to be that person who dresses for the season they wish it was rather than the one it is, but I have been breaking out my Sam Edelman boots lately. I love them so much I have them in two colors (putty and black leather) and wore them almost every day last winter. I lovingly called them my "improv shoes", still do actually. Why not?

On Sunday we hopped on a train to the lower east side for a late brunch at Freeman's. This is what I wore. Before we left I had debated which pair to wear and by 4pm when the skies opened up as we made our way through SoHo I was happy to not be in suede. I typically hate the idea of denim shorts in the city since here, denim usually equals being severely underdressed. (NY is a special place where people get dressed up to drop clothes off at the dry cleaner.) I thought this oversized dolman top helped to strike a nice balance, dressing up the denim and giving it a bit of a boho look. 

Fun fact, especially after Tuesday's post, talking about how awkward these shoots are.. when JD was snapping these photos, a person driving by actually stopped their car to see what was going on. Much to their disappointment, it was just a boring blog shoot. Awkward.

  1. I like the booties!! I've been wearing mine too in the hopes that the weather will cool down. Denim shorts are underdressed for NYC? I kinda like the sound of that.
