#OOTD: skinny jeans + bow blouse + exotic heels

Staying out of the heat , I hope?  Here is a look that is so smooth and cool,  you can skip the pool or Iced laté. I met Samantha during a photo shoot of a recent post.

 As she was walking by I noticed her polished look. I approached Samantha and she agreed to a quick shoot in the street, as she was. .  You will remember you saw her in my recent post here,  and you will see her again before she heads back to college. New York IS a friendly place.

This is a cool city shot. The sidewalk really is a runway in NYC, and Samantha has star quality, with lovely wit and intellectual gravitas as well.

She is wearing stunning snakeskin pumps from Alexander Wang, sleek skinnies from Banana Republic, a roomy tote by Marc Jacobs, and the perfect dotted bow blouse by Alexander Wang, which, like her heels and bag are no longer available. Never Fear.

Thanks Samantha for this outfit inspiration,  and for modeling for The Elle Diaries. What a fabulous person to meet, and get to know.  I love living in Manhattan!

Happy Sunday! Get some rest and some sun. Let me know what you think of Samantha’s look in the comment section. Perfect, just as she is, if you ask me, and even nicer still.

Thanks to Geraldo Vitale for photos.
