Play Hooky - Among Other Things (The Blog)

Play Hooky

On the quest to wear as little as possible this summer, I’ve been turning to scarves to keep me decent during the day.

I wore this outfit to a picnic in Central Park with the girls a few weeks back (which you can see photos of in Jess’s recap), where my sole contribution was (1) champagne and (2) showing up.

… Showing up kiiinda tardy. But fashionably so.

Late. I showed up late.

A real guest of honor, aren’t I?

In my defense, I was on the wrong side of Central Park. And Central Park is freakin’ huge. I know I should be better with directions having lived in New York for more than a year (and, you know, be capable of differentiating East from West); but hey, it was early on a Saturday morning.

Though today’s ensemble is fitting for a lazy day spent eating fresh fruit and lounging on Turkish towels, it’s a look that I repurpose on the reg during the work-week. (With a jacket, because there’s some weird law of physics that ensures the arctic temperatures in my tundra of an office are directly correlated to how much I sweat on that morning’s commute.)

… Life is hard.
