Highline Sunshine


 On Melissa:
Aviators: American Eagle
Necklace: Urban Outfitters
Jacket: H&M
Dress: American Apparel
Belt: American Apparel
Heels: Zara








 On Aubrey:
Blouse: BCBG Max Azria
Black Denim: Guess
Trusty gold flats: Steve Madden

 Watch: Fossil
Friendship Bracelets: Homemade


On Saturday, in perfect weather finally, we took a stroll along the Highline. For those of you non-New Yorkers and maybe even some, the Highline is and old train track that has been converted into a gorgeous park and walkway.

Melissa: The jacket is a modern take on an Indian Nehru jacket popularized by Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime minister of India.  Alexander McQueen's Fall 2008 collection came to mind, (particularly the look below) when styling this outfit.  I used pieces from my closet to achieve a similar, but more casual version of that look.
                                           
Aubrey: It's all about the blouse, baby. I feel in love with the silk burnout, Max Azria, top the moment I tried it on. It has everything, it's flattering, a beautiful burnout print, and cutout sleeves with two buttons each. I feel a bit like a Genie wearing it and I love every second of it. Here I decided to style it simply with my favorite pair of black jeans and my gold flats.

Hope you dears are all doing wonderfully and enjoyed our pictures!

  33. The military jacket c'est chic. I like how you used the same shoes and belt in your new post too, it makes me think you should be a personal stylist.
