Through the cooling twilight

Normally I hate when people talk about the weather, but today was super lame. It was sunny and 80 in Manhattan and I got sunburned on the back of my neck at lunch for crying out loud! I step off the train, feelin' sassy in my platforms, gonna go for a bike ride. BAM! I'm surrounded by fog, freezing cold and can feel my hair curling in the damp air.
Anyway, I have a point! This outfit makes me feel like Daisy from the Great Gatsby. My short flapper inspired hair and an airy summer dress in the cold Long Island fog make me think of Mia Farrow in the 1974 movie. Maybe its just because I've only ever seen it on an old VHS tape, but the whole move seemed wrapped in a fog.

  3. I can totally see the Daisy thing! Definitely a 1920s vibe, which I love, but still modern and freaking adorable. Ugh stop being so cute all the time!

  4. Your hair definitely has a Daisy Buchanan thing going on here. I'm a sucker for a Gatsby reference. I wonder how Baz Luhrmann's adaptation is going...

  6. The hair alone would be enough for a flapper reference, but I do see it with the skirt plus sweater as well. Haha, I was whining all of last week about the stupid cold weather in Barcelona, but managed to take pictures when the sun occasionally poked its head out. I get über grumpy when the weather doesn't cooperate.

  7. This really reminds me of the scene where Jordan Baker and Daisy play tennis. You look classic and cute.

    Although I have to say the weather for Gatsby is more hot than cold. The famous confrontation/car accident happens on a really hot day.

  10. Definitely a 20s vibe. Your hair is one of the reasons I got mine cut short.. I just love it!! I really regret not reading the Great Gatsby in high school (i opted to read something else), and I don't know why I haven't read it since. i'm going to bring it to Europe with me & read it there as I prance about the grand cafes... :p

    Oh and you should wear that lavender color all the time. You look so perfect in it. ^_^

  11. Oh, definitely. You caught that vibe.

  12. You do look like a modern Daisy. Also, I'm impressed by your hair: I used to have a short flapper cut, but if I did not keep it perfectly straight, it turned wildly triangular and I looked like I escaped from a mental institution. Yours, however, looks perfectly romantic.

  13. I love those Madden Girl shoes! They look so great with the rest of the outfit.
