Pier 1

I always love seeing the skyline of NYC; it is dreamy and imposing all at the same time. This view is from a quiet pier on the upper west side, reflecting all the blue of the Hudson River onto the towering buildings.

The air has a distinct fall chill lately, which means I'm wearing more long sleeves. I still want to keep my looks summery (because unlike most of the world I hate having to shift into fall... long live summer!) so white jeans and a playful top are the perfect combo for these 75 degree days. I fell in love with this whimsical print a while ago and was so excited to find it again on this top! The scattered print includes cacti, owls, flamingos, pineapple, tea kettles, bicycles and more in a darling sketch style. 

The top and jeans together create a pulled together yet casual vibe, that I dressed up with wedges, jewelry, and soft curls. I think this outfit would be perfect for weekend brunch, or even a casual work day, but here I wore it to run some errands and stroll in Riverside park. And did I mention that Ruche is back?? My favorite online boutique closed down a few months ago, but I am so delighted that they are finally back up and running under new ownership! I couldn't contain my excitement, and I purchased this top and a cute sweater dress you will surely see me wearing pretty soon.

Anyone else with me on stretching summer into fall?

  1. That top is adorable! Love the little designs on it!

  2. The blue of your (adorable) shirt matches the blue of the skyscrapers in the background perfectly! Great post.
