notes (but mostly photos) from the commute

It's fashion season in my city and I've seen plenty of off-duty models waltzing around.
I've also seen some great stuff on regular people, on my way to work each morning.
Here are some notables:


Untitled

This outfit received much praise/criticism on the street today. I suppose it depends on what kind of attention you'd like to receive.


Untitled


This lady looked lovely. I could never pull off that big dolman-sleeved tee shirt. She looked great.


Untitled

Just look at this guy! Fabulous. I loved his scarf .


Untitled

We pause, briefly, to admire my favorite car in the world...in front of the building where Katie Holmes lives.


Untitled

We don't do a lot of bright colors. Love both of these looks and they are quite different.


Untitled

It was the finest black cardigan in the world. Beautiful, especially under long blond hair.


Untitled

I don't mind a 6-series BMW either, for the record.


Untitled

A pretty skirt, worn well. I cannot abide by the flip flop. The city is too dirty.


Untitled

Gorgeous dress.


Untitled

It's going to rain...hence the plastic tortoise-shell flats. Very pretty.


Untitled

As I got further downtown I saw more and more little sleeveless dresses. Very polished looking without being too bare for an office.


Untitled

Watch out for the CitiBikes. Though slow, they are heavy and could do some damage if they hit you.

  Untitled

Once in my neighborhood this look sort of becomes the men's uniform.  I wish his shoes were a bit heavier but he looks pretty swell.


Untitled

See? Little dress.


Untitled

School is in session so I always pass bunches of little kids which I really enjoy.


Untitled

Kids are usually more colorful than their parents.


Untitled

Leggings? Tights? Sometimes I can't stand around long enough to figure stuff out.


Untitled

A great little dress and gold shoes. I love gold shoes! (6.5)


Untitled

An AMAZING little dress.

  Untitled

I see them every day too. I like dad's shorts.


Untitled

I don't think it's easy but some guys can pull off the pink pants. Wait. That didn't come out right.


Untitled

This is a great combo for late summer...long skirt, cool top, and some denim for the air conditioning.
Nice sandals too. And a good bag! High marks from me, but we are nearly at work.


Untitled

This is the last lady I see each day before I get to the coffee shop. She wears a lot of boxy linen stuff and always looks cool and well put together. And she's kind of my size and shape. I think I need to start saying good morning to her - though no one does that here. I just feel like I know her - sort of.

And me? What was I wearing?




Untitled

My little black Uniform Project dress over a long straight black skirt with my neutral ankle boots (Poppy calls them my POP OF COLOR) and a canvas tote. I have a ponytail (did I mention it's 90 degrees here?) and am having my hair cut on Tuesday.

And, kids, tomorrow is Friday.

I adore these posts. Always so interesting.

I think I'd be nervous about wearing even open-toed shoes in the Big City. Just too much filth.

Love these posts. Feels like chatting with a friend.

Jon Bon Jovi is the only guy that can get away with wearing red leather pants, its the law, but PINK pants, no no no no no no no...although I do like the shirt across the street.
by the way, we got 4 inches of rain in an hour this evening! I'm thinking about building an ark.

You have a ponytail already? Your hair must grow pretty fast. Will we get to see (or at least hear about) the haircut?

Very enjoyable, love your pics and your commentary!

These posts always make me smile, I don't know why.
I suppose it's just nice to take a little morning walk in NYC with someone telling me about the dos and don'ts of everyday-fashion there, which I usually don't care about at all, but suddenly find terribly interesting when you tell me about it. Thank you!

Also, weather here in Germany: cold and/or rainy. Booh!

Your hair looks so great! Get some gold flats for a pop of shiny.

funny about the pink pants.
Pull off pink pants--snicker!
I do adore how people dress in cities. We're such slobs and so boring in the country.

Why not say good morning? I would if I met the same person day in day out. Yes it's THE BIG CITY but you're in that same neighbourhood with the same people, it's like a tiny town within it. Love these posts.And I would LOVE to see you in a colour, I know you'd look amazing.

I don't know you and you don't know me, but I love your blog and this post in particular makes me miss NYC so very very much!

You look so cute. What I can see of you is perfect.

I love that i was with you when you bought those ankle boots. And once again today I am wearing the black cardigan i bought that same day.

Like Green Girl said, here in the country we are slobs. Comfortable, but slobs. I love your fashion on the street posts.
