A couple weeks ago (how is it already the end of April?!), our FP blog intern, Emily, and I took an inspiration trip up to Storm King Sculpture Center, about an hour notrh of NYC. It's a gorgeous spot, if you've never been, and this was my first time seeing it in spring after being well-acquainted with it's autumnal appearance. Isn't it strange, visiting a place that perhaps means so much to you, but you've just not seen it in awhile? Almost like it's haunted with your past self. The vestige of footsteps, words spoken. A picture taken here or there. The last time I walked the grounds was most likely in college. We used to visit yearly to glean some inspiration for our work, and I loved wandering the rolling hills in early November, fog rising from the small pond. This time, spring was just beginning to arrive, sculptures were still coming out of hiding from their winter slumber (we were there two days after opening day), and the leaves were only just thinking about coming out. It was a gorgeous day, in the low 70's and the perfect temperature for a light jacket and sturdy boots, the perfect day to leave the city behind in favor of a little upstate beauty.

I've been feeling pretty spectacularly uninspired lately when it comes to getting dressed. Blame it on the finicky weather, or a busy schedule. But on this day I took the opportunity to break out my vintage fringe jacket, a gift from my mother a couple of Christmases ago, and threw on some comfy pants and easy boots. Something easy to move around in, easy to sit in the car in, that just happened to work out to something I actually felt quite good in.

Get the look: Vintage jacket (similar vintage/similar new) // Novella Royale pants // Loeffler Randall boots // Free People tee & sunglasses
