Rugged -Chic in New Brooklyn

Let’s talk Easter in Brooklyn! Easter has always  been one of the more relaxed holidays for me. Although growing up in the Caribbean Easter meant some extra housework (like at Christmas) and pastel colored dresses with ‘nice’ shoes, as a Brooklyn Girl my style AND lifestyle has surely taken a different turn living in New York City. I often opt out of the cute pastel dresses for dark skirts and I usually forego the ‘nice’ shoes for some sexy boots.  I love Spring and more importantly, I love a great Spring wardrobe! The weather is warmer with a little nip of chill air from time to time, which allows for the ultimate seasonal cross-over of boots and mini skirts. The warmer weather also gives one liberty to go exploring in the neighborhood!

This Easter weekend I’m out on the town soaking up that New Brooklyn lifestyle, where we’re still in a nebulous state as cultures merge and start to take form. I’m a huge proponent of merging cultures as I like to learn and explore new things, and from the looks of it, Crown Heights is fast becoming a budding version of the East Village. It’s nice to be able to absorb all that art and culture right in my back yard.  From the foods to the fashion, the New Brooklyn lifestyle is taking on a life of its own and now it’s a bit more like me – a mixture of rugged and chic! Enjoy!
