Shop – I love days when my only problem is which book to read shirt, oversized tshirt, hoodie
When I returned to New York in April, I couldn’t wait to wear a dress. My first night back, I put on my favorite pair of vintage Prada heels and a floor-length, form-fitting slip dress to eat pizza on the couch of my apartment which felt a whole lot smaller than when I left it. And somehow this didn’t feel at all frivolous; the act of “getting dressed” made the adjustment of returning back to the city a bit less daunting. Ever since, I really do try to put something on everyday. Even if that is simply a caftan-style dress or a new pair of earrings.
But I do know for a fact that the way I shop and dress is forever changed as a result of everything that is happening in our world today. I look at the act of getting dressed as a source of comfort. And for me, that does not mean sweatpants. Instead, I’ve leaned in to flowy silhouettes, light colors, and feminine details. Not only have I rediscovered pieces in my wardrobe, but I no longer look at my clothes as reserved for certain occasions—out-for-dinner tops, beach dresses, and so on. Now I feel a sense of freedom with my style and the notion of a trend feels miles away. I dress based on what feels good on any given day and have learned that being “comfortable” can take many different forms.
