URBAN PLAYGROUND

October 12, 2017


Sponsored by Zappos

The funny thing about New Yorkers, is that we never see the sites this city has to offer. Times Square? No thanks. Empire State Building? Never been. Radio City? What’s that. Statue of Liberty? Maybe when I was five.

So on an unusually sunny Saturday in fall, I decided to walk along the Brooklyn Bridge. For the first time, obviously.

And whether you’re a local or a visitor, there’s one thing everyone in NYC has in common. And that’s practical dressing. While I love my heels and platforms, they don’t cut it when it comes to crossing bridges and trekking across town. Which is why I picked up these super cute Frye boots from Zappos. They’re the perfect shoe for stomping around the city. And they don’t sacrifice on style. I also picked up this roomy tote that fits all the essentials—water bottle, phone charger, etc.

Because in this city staying comfortable is just as important as looking cool. And I get it all at Zappos.

    Camo pants are my vibe right now! I love the pairing with boots rather than trainers, really dresses them up – x

    I love that rocker chic shirt. Its design suites perfectly to your camo pants. Camo is the new black.

    When you travel somewhere, you tend to make the effort to experience what you can, but if you live there, you have other things in life to get on with. It’s nice to make a point of exploring locally sometimes though. It makes you appreciate what you have. I would love to visit NYC one day!

    In love with these camo print pants! So in trendy right now. Also obsessing over this shoot location.. I clearly need to make time to get back to the Brooklyn Bridge to shoot around!

    This is so true about everyone living in a tourist-attractive city. We never see all those famous sites.
    Loved your trousers and how relaxed the outfit is!

    This is so true! Funny when I moved back to NY from Seattle one of the first things I did was walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and yeah no heels for hiking around the city. Love this sporty chic look.

    Killing it in cargo pants, babe! I agree comfort should be top of the list when running around the city and these booties do seem perfect for that! Hope you have a great week Lily
