A classic New York City shoot location, a not-so-classic look. Pairing a silk maxi dress with some sneakers and a beanie is not what you would call conventional, but I quite enjoyed mixing things up in this manner.
I haven't spent too much time in DUMBO, but over the past couple months, I've committed to exploring Brooklyn and branching out of my regular spots. If I have a day and I'm commitment free, I throw on a coat and my headphones and just start walking. Often I've been going west down Myrtle Avenue and ending up on DUMBO, Downtown Brooklyn, or near Prospect Park. I've fallen in love with certain nooks of these areas, and as much as I thought New York could be a short term fling, I see myself pushing a stroller around Fort Greene and doing family days at Rockaway Beach.
Goodness, I'm getting old if that's what I'm looking forward to.
