"Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world." - Marilyn Monroe
The thing about New York City is that you can find charm in the most unexpected places: walking through a graffiti-filled industrial neighborhood, passing brownstones lined with yellow leaves, and rounding corners onto cobblestone streets you’ve yet to encounter.
A few weeks ago, the lovely team at Refinery29 asked me to give them a little tour of one of my favorite neighborhoods: the Meatpacking. I threw on a casual outfit for a day of running from place to place (which included Timberland’s tall zip boot and the Savin Hill Tall Boot,) and headed out.
We started at The High Line, one of the first places I visited as a new-New Yorker. It’s funny how strolling through the same flower-lined trails can bring back such great memories. After a quick outfit change--anyone else loving mini dresses and high boots for fall?--we headed to one of my favorite areas: the cobblestone streets that brought back memories of my first visit to New York. Looking back at it, it’s so crazy to think that at 11 years old, I imagined walking down these streets in an awesome pair of shoes running to coffee with friends. Eleven years later, I’m able to say I spent the day running through those same cobblestone streets in an awesome pair of shoes.
