So long Summer…

September 2, 2019

A little red, white and blue never hurt anybody! When the infamous color trio makes its appearances at the beginning of summer, it’s all you see in stores, on your Instagram feed, and on your favorite style icons for two months. However, the palette’s ubiquitousness usually tapers out before the first of August to make room for more autumnal hues. So before I exchange my bright primary pops of color for burgundy, olive, and camel, I wanted to get one last “farewell” post in saluting summer’s most iconic color palette. This week, I’m bringing it back for a less-fireworks, more-fireside vibe.

All New Yorkers have their most-loved spots in the city. The locations that make us want to slow down for a minute, take everything in, and enjoy the on-goings around us. One of my favorite locations in Manhattan is just about in the center of the island, where 74th Street meets the middle of Central Park. There, you can find the infamous Bow Bridge. Featured in movies like The Way We Were and Enchanted (among others,) the iconic structure has a timeless feel of romance and whimsy. Whenever I make my way to the park, I try to incorporate Bow Bridge into my day’s walking trail. As the year ticks on, the park takes on new energies and personalities, which is why I make a point to frequent it with the change of a new season. I thought that capturing a few moments with the bridge’s austere (and nearly centuries-old) architecture would be a great opportunity to showcase a bit of juxtaposition with one of my breezy summertime ensembles.
