Wet Your Lips

times1.jpg picture by stylebook18

Rainy, windy weather caught me completely off-guard leading me to several outfit changes this morning... started off with a mesh tutu skirt then changed to a knitted cut-out sweater, then finally decided these super skinny H&M jeans and massive Acne wedges would be perfect for walking my feet off around the city. Stupid idea... my poor feet were dying so I changed to equally uncomfortable bow ballet flats and socks. 

Switched to a different hotel down by the financial district, now I'm even farther away from everything! Breakfast at Le Parker Meridien tomorrow morning hopefully! 

Wearing H&M satin lapel blazer, vintage mint printed button-up blouse, H&M paneled black jeans, Acne Atacoma wedges, Karen Walker tortoise sunglasses, M by MJ bag

You're not as far away from everything as you think! Downtown is the best, although I'm not sure you'll have much time to explore! Hope you're having fun here. I love that blazer and the pants!

Mimi said...

Wonderful photo and I love your style. Dressing in NYC is quite different than LA, considering all the walking.
I'm hankering for some NYC.

jazzy said...

Love the outfit, but not a fan of thoes shoes at all, sorry they look like a big loaf of bread,reminds me of rumi's shoe taste, not saying like your copying before her, just reminds me, before peeps jump on me for that. they are not flattering, the outfit is amazing and the background!

LALA said...

Everything looks perfect on you BUT...I know it's very hot and trendy but hands up who thinks that Acne should be banned for bringing such horrible wedges back in fashion..

You know, if there was a vote. you would be hands down the most stylish blogger. You aren't so trendy that you look like some dumb olsen wannabe. Your style flatters you and is chic in any decade or time period.

Nikita said...

Coming from a New Yorker, you have adapted to the NY style quickly haha. Financial District sucks, nothing down there is open past 5pm, which is annoying when you need to make a duane reade run for bobby pins or something.
Hope to run into you on your stay! Except I'll be in boots...

chloe said...

aaaargg, does everyone have those wedges!?? im still waiting for my acne stockist to get the black/silver in, all they have right now are the pale blues, sigh...
i miss my umbrella, i want winter *NOW*

sparkle motion said...

i want those acne wedges sooooooo badly! ive been drooling over them for months. they are just not in my price range, which is sad i know!

katie d said...

Yeah dude you seriously need to break those babies in before walking everywhere... the platform is amazingly high but that leather is SOO stiff until you wear them like at least ten times... (and/or beat them on the banister to break them in lol) then they are extra-amazing and walkable for miles and miles. Keep at it ;)

You look very New York. Love all the black!

PUNKIE said...

I'm always asking myself... why in the moment you put on a pair of designer shoes, they seems so comfortable and after 20 minutes of walk they start to hurt your feet ??
this is such a shit!!
anyway... this look is amazing! I'm lusting on this wedges since the first time I saw them!

and I'm so jealous that you got those Acne shoes! I swear there is not one shoe you own that I haven't liked

polka dot said...

Well it's a gorgeous look and beautiful photo, with the pavement glistening!

The bane of my existence right now is the shoe issue: living in a city (London) & walking everywhere, yet wanting to wear heels. As I heard someone say at Joseph recently: 'I'm a flats girl!'

Anyway, you look great. Hope you had a blast in NY.

you look just so SPENLDID here, yes that's the word, splendid!

airport taxi in denver said...

Find a taxi to the airport can be a daunting task. Generally, there is no problem with this mode, you can easily take a taxi to the airport. But on some bad days when you're late, you can not find a taxi and there is real urgency to reach the airport in time or you miss the flight emergency. Get ready for this day.

ine art is a rather non-specific term sometimes used for any image that consists of distinct straight and curved lines placed against a (usually plain) background, without gradations in shade (darkness) or hue (color) to represent two-dimensional or three-dimensional objects. Line art is usually monochromatic, although lines may be of different colors.Custom Kitchen Cabinets

Fashion is so close in revealing a person’s inner feelings and everybody seems to have to lay claim to vanity so people tend to push it away. It’s really too close to the quick of the soul.
