Two Brooklyn Outfits
SomeoneLikeYou Monday, June 6, 2016
Welcome to my new apartment in the Clinton Hill/Bed-Stuy neighborhoods in Brooklyn. I live on the third floor of a railroad style apartment with two guy roommates. They have the space decorated so wonderfully, and this dining room wall was the perfect backdrop for a few outfit photos. I'm working on purchasing a tripod so I can resume taking my own photos again, but for now shooting a few on my iPhone does just fine.
Everyone's style here is so effortless. I'm incredibly envious. So, in order to try and look as effortless as all these Brooklynites, I've been putting in a lot of effort. I'm sure the naturalness of city style will come to me in time. I've found one key to city style dressing that works like a charm is wearing black. City dwellers are notoriously known for wearing black all day every day, and it's understandable now that I find myself in the position. With limited space for clothing, black is so versatile with everything. No worrying about if this color matches with that ect...It's also a huge time saver to throw on a few simple black pieces without much planning. Accessories elevate simple silhouettes to come across much more personal. I cannot hide my obsession with scarves as of late: they may replace hats as being my favorite accessory. I've never been a huge jewelry person, so they're a simple solution to a bare neckline. They also make me appear a lot cooler than I actually am. Faking it till I'm making it. x
With much love,
