There’s one thing New Yorkers love most in summer: a good apartment rooftop. Although there are many different outdoor options to soak up the sun in NYC (including the many parks around the city), there’s something about being on a rooftop escaping the hustle and bustle of the streets, overlooking the surrounding buildings. I know it doesn’t sound that picturesque or peaceful, but it is.
As a way to relax after a hard New York day, or a casual weekend, my friends and I often head to one of our rooftops for a glass of wine. Some rooftops have BBQ’s, pools, lounge chairs, kitchens, fountains – they really differ depending what building you live in. But they’re always a great place for friends to get together, and they’re always packed!
I wore this outfit the other day to a friends get-together on their rooftop in FiDi (Financial District). I’ve really been getting into the chunky slides this summer, and these from River Island made this outfit a different look than my regular flat sandals. Accentuated with a large bow at the front, they really made a statement!
