Have you ever had a moment with a piece of clothing (or pair of shoes or some other accessory) where you thought, "It will be mine. Oh, yes, it will be mine"? That was me with this yellow jacket—and yes I just made a Wayne's World reference.
I first spotted it on Pinterest and immediately tracked it to Zara online, but knew I'd need to try it on (thanks for the wide shoulders, Mom). Later that night, we had a fateful moment through the window as I passed Zara with Jess and Hallie after SoulCycle. I couldn't admit my obsession then, but the jacket and I made a date for Tuesday and the rest, as they say, is history.
It's been buried in my closet for nearly two months, but the last few beautiful weekends have finally justified its grand arrival and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to shoot it on this quiet street near Washington Square Park. Once I looked at the photos, I realized my look was rather Parisian—which felt appropriate, since across the street from these pics is the Institute of French Studies for NYU! I was so hoping to finally make a trip to the city of light this year, but
duty my sister's wedding calls. As of now I'm just testing out my wardrobe for when I do finally get to make the trip—Paris does call for the best version of oneself (c'mon, 2015!).
