Night Moves at the Washington Mews

fashion over reason, Washington Mews, New York City

It should be so fitting that I have a bit of a professor vibe in these photos since they were shot at a very particular location on the NYU campus called the Washington Mews. It's a really unique part of the city -- a cobblestone row -- that actually used to be old stables. How cool is that? New York is filled with these types of little secret gems.

Anyway, while I stole my husband's t-shirt (which happens more than I care to admit) and am wearing loose distressed jeans with a schoolboy blazer, it's always a good call to add a pair of heels to the mix so that people don't confuse you with an actual member of the opposite sex, know what I mean?

We're no stranger to nighttime shoots here on FOR. In fact, I quite like them because the flash is a complexion's best friend. And while this look is far from being evening wear, I have a penchant for going a bit against the grain and dressing down when the sun does the same. Nothing screams more effortless than looking like you don't really care, amiright?

You're too gorgeous to ever be mistaken for a boy. I totally adore your night shots btw. They're so unique and interesting, and your complexion does indeed look incredible. Mine looks horrible when I use flash...boohoo..

Anyways, love the look. There's not only an academic, but also an equestrian vibe going on...which is rather fitting considering the location.

heels will usually do the trick when it comes to adding a bit of femininity to a look...and besides what looks better with distressed jeans....

I do really love this combo...great blazer....and tee- the advantages of having a husband...stealing of clothes is one of them<3 My guy actually enjoys it:)
