Soho Stripes





(Ruche blouse, Rue De Jeans, Moni Moni handbag, David Yurman/Vanessa Mooney jewelry, 80%20 shoes)

I live for strolls through Soho. The cobblestone streets and gorgeous brick buildings make me feel as if I'm on a movie set! I spent all morning at an event, but when I stepped outside, it felt amazing. It was seriously one of the most beautiful afternoons I've had here in NY! Cool, breezy, with clear skies. I wish I could stay in that moment forever. And this was before the torrential downpours we've experienced these past few days! As for my wardrobe, I'm all about simplicity during the summer and right now, I cannot get enough of the classic striped tee. I love a boxy shaped top paired with a great high-waisted pair of flared jeans. Such a refreshing break from skinny jeans. For some reason, the combination of red, white, and blue, never fails to look amazing. I sometimes feel my best looks are when I'm wearing head to toe basics.
