Still Summer…

“Still Summer…” Outfit of the Day Post on “The Wind of Inspiration” Blog (09.20.2012)

These photos were taken during my recent visit to Governors Island, one of my favorite places in New York. This is quite a special and interesting place, and not only because of its gorgeous view of Manhattan, Brooklyn and New Jersey but because of its colonial architecture, everlasting walking and picnic areas, bike roads and other engaging activities, and kind of mysterious atmosphere…

Still trying to wear as much summer clothes as possible until it gets cold outside, I chose these lace top and lightweight high waisted shorts plus quilted bag and top-siders for this short trip to Governors Island. Exactly what I love - feminine and comfy, isn’t it?

Shorts, by the way, are a versatile piece of clothing and you can play with them, mixing and matching with other clothes, all year long. For example, I wore mine last year with heels, boxy sweater and chunky jewelry. See details of last year’s outfit here. Which variant do you like best?
