A beautiful afternoon spent roaming Wall Street and various other places near by with Luke in New York City. We were tempted to catch the ferry around The Statue of Liberty but after finding some cute lavender bushes lining the ferry docks we decided to relax and take in the view from a far instead. It was the perfect temperature for warm winter coats and Luke’s bear hugs to keep me nice and cosy on the waterfront. I couldn’t have been more content at that very moment.
Here’s a better view of my black patent loafers too. Really simple and so easy to throw on with basically anything. Shortly after purchasing these I discovered there’s actually an endless supply of patent loafers in NYC and was torn between a penny loafer style I spotted at J.Crew. The style was more structured but had an additional $180 price tag, so I was happy to stay with my Steve Madden’s. I’ve always felt really young and little when I wear ballet flats (is this just me?) so I just love how easily these loafers have replaced them and instantly added a preppy and polished feel to my outfits. Not that they need to get any more preppy but you know what I mean. I’d never say no to more man style dressing.
Next stop, Brooklyn Bridge and their unbelievable flea markets!
