You know what day it is! Every other Friday is the Carrie Bradshaw outfits series, where I’m recreating Carrie’s looks one by one for the modern day woman. Today’s outfit is inspired by the annoyingly tricky transitional Winter to Spring weather. In New York, it can be freezing in the morning but sunny by mid-day, so what’s a girl to do? Layering up is the only solution, so I thought it would be fun to recreate Carrie’s Winter look for transitioning into Spring instead.
How pretty is this chevron dress on its own? It fits like a glove and hugs in all the right places. It’s by Autumn Cashmere and I swear it seemed like new when I got it from ThredUP. I kept the rest of my outfit simple with a black shoulder bag and a diamond necklace. Sometimes you just need a little bit of sparkle to complete a look.
So the last thing I want to share with you guys is that getting these photos were quite the struggle. I actually took these photos by myself with a tripod and remote control, which that part is fine as I’ve done it before and it’s not so hard once you’re had some practice. However, as I was shooting in the middle of South Street Seaport, a security guard came up to me and told me that I am not allowed to shoot with a tripod. Naturally I asked him if people are allowed to take photos here, and he said yes, just not with a tripod. I completely did not understand this and it actually infuriated me. Of course I would prefer to have someone taking my photos, but sometimes I can’t find anyone to shoot for me and I don’t want to have to pay for a photographer all the time. So I took matters into my own hands, and apparently NYC law does not like that. Yup, it’s apparently a NYC law that you cannot shoot with a tripod without a permit. As if life couldn’t get any harder as a blogger right?! Needless to say it was quite a frustrating experience, what are you daily frustrations as a blogger? Let me know in the comments below!
