There are a few style blogs that I follow regularly, and I find I am especially enamored of those that are based in New York, which happens to be my favourite city in the world (so far). There is a lot of style on the streets of NYC, much if it expensive, some of it crazy, most of it inspiring. I recently discovered nycrunfashion, which follows the style established by The Sartorialist, of capturing shots of stylishly-dressed people out on the streets, going about their daily business. In larger cities like NY, I often see people whose look I wish I could adopt as my own, but I realize that either because of age, body type, money, or personality (sometimes all four), it wouldn't work. The woman in this photo, from nycrunfashion, is giving me a serious case of style envy, in fact, I want to be her, I don't care how messy her life is.
Just so we're clear, I DID NOT take this photo. It is from the blog, nycrunfashion and I am emailing the owner immediately to ask his permission so that he doesn't sue me for posting it.
