(Club Monaco shirt, DIY shorts, Chloe Sunglasses, Asos Flats)

My roommate snapped some pics of me outside the church across the street. Its an incredibly beautiful church but it seems completely out of place in the middle of Manhattan. But that's the beauty of Manhattan, one minute you're in a gothic church, the next you're standing next to a futuristic building by Gehry. I never want to leave New York.

More about the outfit - I got these amazing pink flats from Asos a while ago, and I haven't busted them out till now, I'm not sure if they look amazing with the outfit - but I had to take them out. And this is hands down my favorite summer shirt, its so light and airy but girly and feminine at the same time. The back is super cool - its a shame we didn't capture it in pictures.

On a random tangent, Robert Pattinson was filming a movie on my street yesterday - the crowd of screaming girls was ridiculous. I went as moral support for my roomie, because I don't like him or find him attractive at all, but even she was shocked at the little girls who skipped out on private school to see him walk down a street. I think sometimes we forget that they're just normal people...


  1. I thought the flats were lavender. Either way I love them!!
