Hi there ♥
Back with an outfit I shot the other day! I usually get off work at 5 and can be back home to Brooklyn by 5:45. I shot this outfit in the nearby neighborhood of Fort Green: filled with quiet, brownstone lined streets. Although this is a sweater dress, it surprisingly offers a lot of air circulation: much needed in these exhausting 90 degree temps we've been having in NYC. That may not seem high to some of you, but when you add in the hot exhaust from all the cars + the sheer number of bodies in the city + no air circulating around massive buildings...winter starts sounding not half bad.
Anyways, there is also a flea market in Fort Greene every Saturday and Sunday. It's a spin off of the Brooklyn Flea, and is an amazing maze of vintage dealers, food stands, antique knick knacks, and artisan made goods. My kind of place. I've been looking high and low for the perfect vintage paisley scarf with red coloring for awhile now, and found one at the flea! I was so pleased since it was the perfect size for wearing around the neck, or tying it around my purse handle. For $5, even cheapster Lauren could pay that. It's been adding such a pretty, classic, vintage vibe to my outfits. I'm kind of bored with my wardrobe here (it feels like I wear the same things over and over) so having a scarf to mix things up with makes me feel a bit more creative with my outfits.
Alright, now to crank up that AC for tonight and try and cool down before another day in the heat wave tomorrow! Hope you all are well; talk soon. x
With much love,
