Forever 21 blouse, Pinkyotto Shorts, Rebecca Minkoff Swing bag, Candela shoes, Asos hat, Giles & Brother Railroad Spike cuff
I know this hat makes appearances on this blog a whole mess of a lot as it is, but as the summer wears on I find myself becoming more and more concerned with sun protection. This hat compensates for when my sunscreen wears off for sure! I don't mind throwing it on with everything knowing that I've got shade on my head at all times.
Giles & Brother sent over the cuff the other day and I have been wearing it almost as much as my hat this week. I've been a huge fan of Giles & Brother ever since I found one of their nut & bolt bracelets on the sidewalk last year while I was walking home in Brooklyn. Unfortunately I came to lose it myself after months on non-stop wear, but that just made me geek out even more when the sibling design team behind the brand, Courtney (Giles) & Philip (Brother) Crangi, contacted me. Their use of historical references in their incredibly personal collections is incredibly inspiring. I can't help but love how they made something as crass and angry-looking as a nail look so delicate and chic while you wear it, and the ends of the nail peek out from the sides of your wrist.
On this particularly lovely afternoon, Justin, Bonnie, Christina & I met up and beat the heat by first visiting the Rebecca Minkoff offices for Ben & Jerry's frozen yogurt (the Banana + PB flavor is the best frozen yogurt I've ever had) and then hitting up the Cynthia Vincent boutique on Elizabeth street for snowcones (Thanks Angie!!). I had a "Tiger Blood" snowcone, which is strawberry & coconut syrup (to die for), but the winner was the Birthdaycake snowcone, which tasted like everything in Coldstone Creamery combined. Weirdly fantastic & much needed on a summer afternoon.
