Every June, as the summer heat descends on New York City, something magical happens. The usually gruff, rough façade of the City melts away as Pride Month’s inclusive positivity sweeps locals and visitors alike. I love strolling along Fifth Avenue or down through SoHo and seeing all the restaurants and storefronts promoting Pride initiatives! One of the retailers that I’ve come to love is Bonobos and this year they’ve launched an epic line of Pride-themed socks!
Bonobos, in partnership with Pride Media, made a donation to the Callen-Lorde Community Health Center, an organization whose mission is to provide sensitive, quality health care and related services targeted to New York’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities — in all of their diversity — regardless of ability to pay. And that kind of support is something I can definitely get behind!
I paired my socks with a pastel-and-floral outfit that included these lavender shorts and floral camp collar button-down. The shorts boast an incredible fit and might be the most comfortable I’ve worn in forever, while the floral button-down features a colorful pattern and silky finish!
Would you wear this look? Let me know in the comments! And if you’re looking to add some Pride pizzazz to your summer outfits, you can shop all of Bonobos’ pride socks! Happy Pride, y’all!
