Great Lengths

4.20.2012


Thrifted maxi skirt (similar look here),
H&M striped grey tank,
Vintage necklace,  
Fafi x Adidas cropped leather jacket (how cool is the lining?!), 
Forever 21 platform sandals.

These photos were shot on Micol's roof--one of our favorite places to chill when the weather starts to get warmer. It's an ideal place to bask in the Spring sunshine, as it's sandwiched between two taller buildings, creating a sunny haven without any wind and a little incubator of sorts.

Only problem is that to get there you have to scale the narrow fire escape that leads from Micol's deck, past her upstairs neighbors' kitchen, and then up another 10 foot wall. Normally this would be an easy endeavor, but in platform  heels and a maxi skirt... well, you can imagine the complications.

I was quick to kick off the heels and hike up the skirt after our shoot in order to soak up the last rays of sun while sipping on some wine. Totally worth the effort.
