Missing Summer

I never thought I would say this, but, here goes: I really miss summer dressing.  That felt wrong to say.  In the past, I have always been (and still am) a much bigger fan of winter due to its allowance of layering and being able to wear tights with dresses and jeans with booties (and also because I am allergic to the sun, but not the point).  As the temperatures cool off here in New York post Sandy I am shocked to discover myself missing the heat and the outfit choices that accompany it.  

Here is an outfit from this past summer. I wore it to the city for a family trip to the Metripolitan Museum of Art. I have a family of art history majors so we go pretty frequently to lots of museums, especially when we travel. The Met is one of my favorites because I feel like every time I go I find some hidden room that I've never noticed before. Also, the roof has a gorgeous view of the city:    


This may be the first and last time I ever look tan in a shot coutesy of my 9 hour days as a lifeguard over the summer. Madewell romper, Levi's denim vest, Jeffery Campbell flats, Dannijo bib necklace, Marc by Marc Jacobs bag, Ralph Lauren sungalsses.  I really love this picture because of the vibrant colors. 

This visit to the Met was to see the Elsa Schiapparelli and Muccia Prada exhibit.  This being said, I felt slightly obligated to wear a colorful print to pay homage to Muccia.  The exhibit was beautifully done, but the Alexander McQueen exhibit of last summer was pretty hard to top.

All this summer reminising has made me extra excited for my trip to Florida next month! My wedges could use a day out on the town after their long nap.  Still, I really do prefer the versitility of winter clothes. Do you have a preference?

Well I am off to take a practice SAT-should be a good time!

  9. I miss summer too. In Seattle this year, it seemed like we had an extra long summer. A few people actually started complaining about it... and now that it's pouring down rain, everyone regrets what they said.

    I think it's really cool, by the way, that you have a family of art history majors. I totally apologize if you've mentioned it in your blog somewhere, but out of curiosity, are you planning to be an art history major to continue the legacy as well? :)
