Tropical Punch During NYFW

Because New York was so hot during Fashion Week, I wore a lot of crop tops. Why the leather jacket then? Well, a few reasons… unless I’m by the beach or it’s really scorching hot (like this time) I don’t like exposing my top. I’ve always been a little more developed up there so ever since I was young, I’ve been a bit self conscious and I guess that just never left me. Another reason is, it’s so freakin’ cold inside the shows! Don’t want my headlights on you know? Plus, the leather jacket (over the shoulder) is more appropriate when walking around the streets in New York.

Tropical prints are one of my favorites. I wore a different version of tropical prints last year during Fashion Week and it’s always fun wearing prints that you’d normally wear during vacation, out and about!

…and to answer everyone’s favorite question: Why the jacket over the shoulder? I’ve been wearing my jackets like capes ever since I lived in San Francisco. It was mainly because I actually started wearing more jackets and coats when I was living there and I’ve always worn a lot of bracelets, so they kept getting stuck in the sleeves every time I put my jacket on or took it off. It’s also efficient when it’s hot but not hot enough, or cold, but not cold enough… Also, kinda cool when you’re jacket doesn’t fit you perfectly (maybe slightly big? I have this problem a lot due to narrow shoulders) and when your jacket is over your shoulder, it just looks dope. Knamean?

  2. This is the most gorgeous print on a shorts suit I’ve seen so far. It may just be the most gorgeous print I’ve seen all year. The bird of paradise print is so stunning & it does remind me so much of tropical locations & balmy summer evenings.

  3. Love your style! I am looking for strong stylish women to paint portraits of for my series ‘The Feral Goddess Collection’. If you like my work and are interested then send me a photo of yourself looking fierce or strong or just damn cool. I will paint an image based on your photo and post it on my blog gallery FeralState.com. You are welcome to post the painting too if you like it! The most successful pieces of my work will be put up for sale on the saatchionline gallery. Lx

  4. The print on the crop top and shorts combo is gorgeous! A bit daring, but with a blazer, it works!

  5. Im am so in love with the top and matching shorts! Where are they from, I have been searching for a matching set for so long.
    Thanks so much!
