While I Am Away

Since I am not sure how good the internet connection will be, I decided to post in advance this casual outfit that I wore a couple of weeks ago in the Hamptons.

The weather is not getting better here in New York, and I feel that these gradient shorts will stay in my closet until next season. Honestly, I would be freezing if I was not wearing this “holey thing” as Ben calls my favorite Tahari jacket. You will see this jacket on my blog quite often now, because I am wearing it non-stop. First of all, it was a present from my beloved Ben and it always reminds me of him. Second of all, it fits with virtually everything in my closet. Finally, since the jacket is so unusual and chic, it turns even the most casual outfit into a stylish one.

I am wearing a very unique pair of sneakers by Kate Spade that I purchased this summer (collaboration with the brand Keds). Well, these casual shoes are unique for me, because I am known as a girl who always wears high heels. So you probably can guess what happened to me. Well, maybe I am just getting older and started appreciating the comfort (You can read more about my obsession with expensive and comfortable shoes here).

Also, for this look I picked my Valentina Hipster bag by Botkier. I am glad to see that more and more people have started carrying totes, clutches, and shoulder bags by this brand that I discovered about six years ago. When I got my first Botkier bag, I had been carrying it without switching to anything else for about a half a year. Then, I created the rule for myself to only purchase Botkier bags and nothing else. Now, when everybody seems to be obsessed with Botkier, I am just enjoying my collection. By the way, I still own that bag that I got six years ago and it still looks amazing.
