Yesterday’s look in Soho consisted of a white swing dress, casual afternoon tea hat, circle shades and stud ankle booties. This look was super comfortable and casual to wear around all day shopping and lunching. I stopped in a few of my favorite locations including Bess, LF and Miu Miu. I snagged a fantastic pair of huge black sneaker platforms at LF yesterday for only $85, then wore them out last night. I’m also definitely investing in a pair of teal Miu Miu shades for the summer and had fun trying them on. After a full day of walking around, we indulged in a huge plate of sweet potato fries and some cocktails. The weather has been perfect, not too hot and not too cold. Summer style is at is prime when you don’t have to worry about the heat or the cold.

Tropical summer frost. Feather heat and hibiscus flowers. Rich oranges and purples in the air. Textured plants. Reflective sunglasses, crystal blue mirror images. Get ready for the summer frost. Wear flowers on your shorts and in your hair with liquid blue in your eyes. Summer’s hot, are you?
I’m so inspired when it comes to the weather getting warmer. I start building my outfits around my sunglasses. What are your favorite type of sunglasses for this season? As I’ve said before, I’m really feeling the blue tinted mirror frames. I’m thinking of getting an aviator pair.
Let summer and sunglasses inspire you, kisses from Manhattan.

When I’m not running from Starbucks to the subway in a little sweater, aviators and platforms, you can usually find me in all black and white. Nothing is better to me than a pair of leather pants paired with a really nice white tee by Cheap Monday or Diesel. Not only is it subtle, but it’s easy cool. Although with the heat coming our way, leather pants seem to become less and less of an option. I wanted to come up with a few summer looks that still keep that black and white cool, but matched with the rising temperatures. Here, I’m wearing mirror sunnies (one of my summer staples!), paired with a mesh tee by Nastygal and white zip shorts. I love mesh and zippers for summer as well. I like the harsh feel of them on a lightweight summer garment. What are your June staples?

I’m seeing stars. Lemonade dreams and lace platforms.When you’re young, not much matters. We’re up chasing the daylight with dreams painted in our hair. That’s what they said, “What we have here is a dreamer, someone completely out of touch with reality.” Well if reality is where you live, I don’t think I want to go there. I’d rather sing love songs and play in the sand. Strip and run into the water when the moon hits the tide. When you find something you care about, that’s all you’ve got.

While I powder my nose, he will tie his shoes. And if I try to get close, he is already gone. Don’t know where he’s going. I don’t know where he’s been, but he is restless at night, and he has horrible dreams. So we lay in the dark, we’ve got nothing to stay, just the beating of hearts. I don’t know what we’re doing. I don’t know what we’ve done, but the summer fire is coming, so I think we should run.
And while I brush my hair, he will put on his shirt. And we will step outside, checking that the coast is clear on both sides, because we don’t want to be seen by anyone. I won’t tell my mother, it’s better she don’t know. And he won’t tell his folks, cause they’re already ghosts. We’ll just keep each other as safe as we can, until we reach the boarder, until we make our plan, to run.
