In today’s edition of What I Wore This Week, Eliseé Browchuk shares her past 5 days—which includes criss-cross denim shorts and plenty of linen.
It goes without saying that everyone has been looking forward to this summer for a long while, myself and my neighborhood included. I’ve been eagerly watching my little corner of the Lower East Side ease back into the electric energy it’s known for as more people begin to enjoy the start of summer.
Restaurants are overflowing with patrons happy to wait for hours on the curb, outdoor pergolas are packed to the brim, art galleries are glowing with new exhibitions on rotation, local stores are happily entertaining customers while they discover IRL shopping again, and new hot spots are cropping up on every block. It all gives everyone a reason to go out and explore summer.
With everything reopening as reemergence hits its peak, I’ve found it harder to balance dressing for work and play, especially in the city heat. But I’m always up for a challenge, and the flexibility of working remotely makes the art of staying cool at home that much easier. From morning Zooms to finding a moment of zen on my roof, here’s a glimpse into my wardrobe for the first week of summer in the city.
