Summer Fridays – those glorious half Fridays between Memorial Day and Labor Day (some have the option of having alternating Fridays off completely). It’s a nice New York perk as it extends the weekend a bit, and gives us a little more time to enjoy the summer sun. As such, casual Fridays sometimes get taken a bit to extremes, but I try to have fun with it.
This is it, folks. I had hoped for better weather on the last Summer Friday – Fifi and I are heading to Central Park to send off the final week of the official summer season with some strawberries and champagne (and possibly a Pat LaFrieda Burger) this afternoon. I’m hoping the sun will make an appearance, else we’re likely to take our strawberries, champagne (and burgers) and huddle indoors somewhere, in more of a lamentation of summer’s end than a grand sendoff.
My outfit today is an homage to fall (who says I can’t move forward gracefully?) with one foot – or both, actually – lingering behind in summer.
Also, this may be the last Summer Friday outfit post of the season, but worry not – there’s more to look forward to on Stolen Says. Next week, there’s a profile of an up-and-coming designer, as well as a little throwback to summer (is it too soon to do that?). Until then, I’m looking forward to a long holiday weekend, and hitting the ground running Tuesday morning – happy Labor Day, everyone!
