New Balance sneakers

On The Road Again...

Wearing: The Reformation dress, Madewell denim jacket, New Balance sneakers (more colors here)

A classic Sloane outfit of neutrals, denim, and sneakers (only missing some stripes....). Two layers of long sleeves seems slightly uncomfortable in the hot and humid city heat, but guess what kids?!

This girl is getting out of the heat once again. 

No, I'm not going to the Arctic. This weekend, I'll be road-tripping up to Camden, Maine with Lark Hotels. It will be my first time in Maine, so I cannot wait to explore the area. And you know it, layering works in Maine weather (well, according to weather.com)

“I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it's because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes, and ships change, it's because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or to watch it - we are going back from whence we came."- JFK 

Any time I'm visiting Rhode Island, I always try to make it to the lighthouse at Castle Hill Inn. Tucked away on a rocky point- cue the cliche- it's the perfect escape. Perched on the rocky edge whilst watching fisherman and the boats break through the waters before they head out to the Atlantic brought a moment of serendipity to my day. The ocean has this ability to make you feel so small, but is incredibly comforting as well. 

Last weekend was no different and as always, my hair was a windy mess and I was dressed like a Acne Studios 90s kid. 

It's true: some things never change.

High Street Friday

Wearing:Zara jumpsuit,New Balance sneakers,Saint Laurent bag,J.Crew belt (25% off!)

When the concept of style staples comes up, it sometimes brings along a hefty price tag because of a common misconception of staples = inve$tment. Whilst this does apply to life's finer goods (i.e. bags, shoes), high street stops like Zara or Topshop offer killer pieces to take you from season to season without a glitch. Let us not forget my Zara playsuit- which has gotten more wear than it's own good- and for when I care for something somewhat similar (remember, keep it spicy), this black jumpsuit wins the Zara draw. The four lettered Spaniard is the quite guilty one for my overflowing wardrobe. 

And on the bottom half of the my sartorial spectrum, if you haven't figured it out already, my preferred shoe of choice is a sneaker.... erm #sneakerhead? Introducing my latest catch a la New Balance.
