heat wave

Well, New York, you never cease to amaze me with how hot you can get in the summer. Seriously, when I think about the fact that last summer I lived in an un-airconditioned room I start to wonder how I even survived. Even between carefully plotted routes that maximize time spent in AC and minimize potential heat stroke, I can't deny the fact that the rising temperatures can be super uncomfortable. That's why on the weekends I've been showing much more skin with airy crop tops, miniskirts and low-backs. This look was perfect for meeting my friend Elly at the Met, grabbing some (you guessed it) pizza, and then finding a shady spot in Central Park to people watch. A perfect day spent on the Upper East Side. Also, shout out to my parents who got married on this day 36 years ago (when the temperature was 99 degrees!). Happy Anniversary!
