FIFTY-SIX

Just as quick as the temperature creeps into the 60s it’ll switch up on you and drop down to 35. New York weather is as consistent as the truth coming out of the White House. This week has been very cold but sunny as hell and I’m over it. The wind in NY has been competing with Chicago for the baddest bitch award and I just want it to be summer already. This has been a heavy week and it feels like the weather is reflective of that.

As I’ve stated before, I’m really into monochromatic looks lately and mixing different shades of one color. For this I started with this heat tech Alexander Wang x Uniqlo top and built the outfit around that. I got these amazing heavy cotton pants from the Need Supply/Totokaelo sample sale and I’m so in love with them. It’s rare for me that I can buy a trouser and wear them without having to get them tailored first (short girl problems). If you’re in NYC, I highly recommend checking out @260samplesale they have new options weekly and the prices are always really good.

On a somewhat unrelated note, I watched a video recently from a YouTube personality that I can’t remember the name of but she said something that resonated with me, it was something along the lines of “I created a website so I could control the narrative and tell my story in my own words” and I think that was so profound. Whether you want to believe it or not, people are constantly googling you, whether it be jobs, partners, or friends the ideas people make up about you based off of a tweet or an IG post is kind of insane. So for me, the reason why I keep coming back to this space which seems dated in this period we’re in is so I can drive the story about who I am. You don’t have to guess, I’m showing you and telling you.

As the weather starts to warm up I’m all about transitional wear. I’m not sure when it happened but Spring/Summer has creeped up and become my favorite time to get dressed. I think it has to do with the feeling of a refresh, sun on my skin, and honestly I’m just tired of being cold.

I got this dress from Need Supply, the silhouette reminds me of a white Jacquemus dress that I bought and ultimately lost when I moved back to NY (R.I.P!). Because it’s not that warm yet I paired it with my absolute favorite pants (surprisingly by H&M) and these Margiela boots I got on eBay brand new for $70. Every time I wear them, TRUST that I will remind you of the amazing deal I got on them.

Somehow, my spring layers game is so much better than fall.
