shorts are our hero. they allow the cool to go where it needs to go without getting us in trouble and despite the recent trend of peak-a-booty-cheek (what’s that all about anyway – are we really channeling 70′s slasher flick shorts on the streets like this and taking ourselves seriously) we can still wear shorts that are safe enough to bend over in let alone walk.
night crawling is the best way to get around in this heat and though we are far from micronesia, i revel in coming to life at night in the roaring belly of summer. the bugs are asleep…or playing cards, or whatever it is that they do, frogs and grasshoppers sing and the night is comfortably warm with a cool breeze. this is the perfect time to bring out shorts paired with heels and a great summer bag that channels the summernista in all of us.
first you need the perfect pair of cut off denim shorts and tee shirt. these Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren Gooding Shorts are patriotic and fun. as for the tee shirt, of course plain white is safe, but it’s summer and we are wearing shorts so think graphic. case in point, this Spike Lee Brooklyn T-shirt is the perfect choice. really, it’s that simple. with the perfect tee comes the perfect pair of sneakers which will make or break everything. again, we are going simple and pair of crisp, white Superga Cotu Classic Sneakers are perfect for the job.
after these three components come together it’s even simpler from here. all you need now is a bottle of smell good. Bond No. 9 I love NY is a velvety smooth scent that came out in September of 2011 marking ten years since New York’s September 11 tragedy. this smooth fragrance possesses a blend of bergamot, cocoa, creamy chestnut, patchouli, vanilla leatherwood and sandalwood. paired all tother, these simple summer pieces brings this look together.
