Tuesdays in the City
Photographs by Gel Castillo
This past week I’ve been religiously watching all the NYFW shows, studying the collections and absorbing the trends. Something I’ve noticed pop up more frequently than not are boots (probably because it's the Fall 2018 season) and styling them in a way that’s unconventional but still works. So of course, I’ve been updating my wardrobe with more boots, not only because it’s winter but because boots are essentially a shoe that goes with everything in my closet. Playing with a popular texture today with my current favorite boot from Finery London, a leather croc-effect ankle boot that adds a refined texture and a neutral pop of color. These boots were an unexpected twist from what I usually fancy in my personal style but as soon as I put them on, I was all in.
Today was a pretty casual day in the city, which I’m thankful for because starting next week I’m going to be busier than ever. I visited the newest location of Cafe Réveille in Lower Haight, stopped by the downtown Chanel store for some nail goodies and grabbed a late afternoon smoothie at Bean Bag Cafe on Divisadero & Hayes St. These Emilia Ankle Boots were the perfect companion for my city adventures, walking block to block on the San Francisco streets.
