OH MY LANTA, this heat that ensued this weekend. Let me advise you not to attempt to cross the Brooklyn Bridge for a leisurely sightseeing tour, but to instead, stick it out with fun activities within an AC’d building. Needless to say, I had a successful jaunt with the above combination of airy chambray, and a headscarf to keep the hair out of my eyes, and with the help of a hair-tie, off my neck.

Now to get through the rest of this week without melting on the sidewalks …

Meet my attempt to look both equally pulled together, relaxed, and colorful. As forementioned, I love scarves, and can save a load of time in the morning by using one to tie my hair back. So timeless, and perfect for the upcoming summer days we want the hair out of our faces.

I should also mention that I love these high waisted jeans. It took me a while to get on board with them, but I love the ability to tuck in a variety of shirts, and finish it off with a belt. They’re kinda the equivalent of the ever useful, pencil or a-line skirt, don’t you think?
