    Those are men’s JCrew sandals, one of the few shoes they still manufacture in Italy- they are worth every penny! The shorts look killer on her, as does the linen shirt, high quality linen is always a great addition to an outfit! Jorge from WPB

    …how come is so flipping hot over there that everyone is wearing shorts (and flip flops). No surprise, here in the UK it’s rainin again and so chilly I have a hot water bottle while I’m working at home, lol.

    Anyone know where she got those shorts? The pattern is derived from a traditional African textile – I’m writing a paper on its contemporary aspects, and this would make a great reference!
    Ah, apologies for bringing academia into fashion, but I couldn’t resist! hee hee

    Fantastic image construction – the blue of the shirt – the pattern on the shorts – all against the graffiti – it’s perfect. But guys come on – the short are horrible! Well I guess that’s what style is all about eh? It really is in the eye of the beholder..xx

    J-Crewsy but I love it. She looks cool (in the hip way as well as in the temperature way) from head to toe in great casual pieces. And she has the good sense to buy leather flip flops which look infinitely better than rubber ones…. rubber flip flops look trailer trashy even on Park Ave. feet. Good eye Jorge for identifying the shoes. You are superoptic.

    Those shorts are a must have for me. Gotta find them or something like. I may go crazy in my search because not just any tiki/batik pattern will work. Anyone know who makes them?

    Gorgeous girl standing near the most beautiful graffiti mail box ever – nice shot, Sart.

    Hmm… This is the way I schlep around the house and yard and on the odd very early morning hit the dog park. It is casual, it is easy, it just doesn’t strike me as stylish street-wear. It is not terrible, it is just not special. She is lovely.

    I seldom comment because I usually get what your seeing. This I am missing…

    Perfect casual, but I would be afraid of my feet. Didn’t notice, that this tribal chic is back – is it really? I mean, well I really don’t know, because of the length of the shorts.

    It’s irish linen by Brooks Brothers, isn’t it?

    This is just the definiton of “relaxed” attitude towards fashion…despite the fact, that the colour of the shirt does not match her trousers, she is unbelievable cute…no fake boobs, no fake hair, just a lovely tan and an “lean back and enjoy the sun” attitude…10 points!!

    I love this look, i have a dress in that same print that I bought at a thrift shop but it is too big these days, maybe i’ll have the fabric made into shorts?

    I also love her bag, mainly because I own it! It’s made out of recycled sails.

    Love the shorts. I know it’s a tribal print, but is it reminding anybody else of Keith Haring’s work?

    May 19, 2009 at 12:13 am

    some are saying it’s too casual or too plain. I disagree. Clothes don’t need to be wild or extremely polished or dressy to be stylish. I think she looks unique and herself, not trying too hard to please, not trying to be high fashion, not really even trying to get attention. Just a casual, personal look. I love it.

    I don’t want to be negative but I’ve seen better… of course, everyone has their opinion, thats the beauty of blogs! I guess I’m just ‘eh’ about it because my younger sister works at J.Crew and wears stuff like this all the time and I’ve never thought of it as impressive. If I was walking down the street I wouldn’t look twice at her honestly. But its great that Scott has his own vision and makes people (even me!) re-evaluate style. I’ll have to show this to my sister and see what she thinks! (She owns those flip flops too! …and I borrow them on the down low… shhh!)

    is this considered trendy NYC street style? Like Honolulu, this is the uniform here in San Diego. We thought we were just dressing comfortably but who would have guessed we were on the pinnacle of modern fashion all these years :) The Satorialist needs to make a visit out here!! I’ll host!

    I love the entire look altogether, but I am not the biggest fan of those shorts or the half of the bag that I can see. I do however, like how the bag matches the graffiti in the background.

    Yep, great style indeed! Love that easy, summer-in-the-City look which New Yorkers seem to pull together so effortlessly.

    no, most of us wouldn’t look twice at her on the street—and it doesn’t matter, because that’s not what “style” is about. this is breezy and beautiful—and it absolutely lets her natural loveliness stand out. there’s nothing manly about this woman.

    A lovely photo, lovely lady with lots of style, clearly. As for the clothes themselves, I love them but for the beach not the city. I really wish people would “bring it” a little more. I don’t mean simply dressing up or going more formal, not at all. But, for example, leave Nantucket reds on Nantucket, leave anything fraternity/sorority related in the pajama drawer, etc. Also — I know I am hugely in the minority here — but flip flops in NYC just seem all wrong to me. I want to see *real* shoes.

    well you’ve got a very clever eye – i can see what you’re getting at but actually it’s the shot that makes it look good – mailbox, legs etc. – anyone else trying to pull this off would look frumpy
