Grunge for Spring? Groundbreaking.

In New York it seems like Spring is never going to arrive. The skies have been cloudy and gray, and while I was writing this it was about 30 degrees. But it’s April, and Spring should be here, but it seems like it’s simply not. Getting ready I find myself instinctively reaching towards t-shirts and tank tops, but the sad reality is I need something warmer.


While black has always been my wardrobe staple, I find myself wearing more grey these days. It’s a softer counterpart, and I suppose it’s my take on pastels. And only in New York would grey be considered a “pastel.”



But the light has started to change; days are slowly but surely getting longer; and the temperature has slowly started to rise. So I’m taking off the fur lined flannel, and adding a pair of sunglasses. I love these because the shape is a little something different, and the grey tortoiseshell pattern is a classic that’s still modern. And I bought these for about $9 from H&M.


I rarely wear anything other than jeans these days, and these are a trusty pair of Levi’s 510s. Super slim cut with just a bit of give, they’re perfect for running around the city while still looking put together. My friend is a designer at the shoe company, and he sent over a pair of these retro Roos, which I love and have been wearing them nonstop. There’s also a secret pocket under the “Roos” side flap, which I think is just hilarious and also quite utilitarian. Looking forward to wearing these to the beach soon.
