15th November, 2011
as i promised earlier today, to follow is my finest shot at fall colorblocking. yesterday was one of those perfect, picturesque days in new york, when a girl can get away with wearing open-toed shoes and a jacket. that’s my kind of perfect, anyway. the leaves are starting to turn and drop, but there’s still a bit of green left on the trees. in other words, the city is in on this season’s sartorial spirit, colorblocking along with us!
