Autumnal Heat: Stars & Stripes

Wednesday, October 11, 2017


I was going to skip this post entirely but with a seemingly endless summer in New York, a few final warm weather looks still feel somewhat relevant. It's funny to think about how much pressure I used to put on myself to update this blog, when Instagram was still in its early stages of a social media takeover. These days I'm only motivated by certain moments to take blog photos, especially if I'm not traveling. Instagram has made all this content creation too easy - and I say that as both a positive and negative.

But I won't spend much time complaining about the changes and effects of social media - it is what it is. Instead, I'm using this lingering summer heat to share some final memories from the season through these outfits. As much as I am ready for fall, I love that summer always holds some of the best memories.

These photos were taken during two of my favorite kinds of moments - the first on a trip to Austin and the second on an afternoon with friends in the city. They indicate summer ease by way of travel, and at home. Now that it's October the season has definitely overstayed its welcome, but at least it gave me an extra reminder to reflect on the best of it.
