You know, for a young lady who's appeared in magazines, books, and even on Zara T-shirts, Chantal van der Meijden seems to like things quiet. When we caught up with the creator of the beloved Cocorosa style blog on a sunny morning in her Williamsburg neighborhood, it was for a Timberland-clad stroll around the park and a relaxing walk down to the water. We didn't hit the shops. We didn't stop at a restaurant. Nope, we just walked and talked about fashion, Williamsburg, and springtime (which can't get here fast enough).
Maybe we've spent too much time around our loud, busy Financial District office (because we have), but taking it easy for this unseasonably warm day really did us right. So did van der Meijden's style tips for that matter.
Click on for some seriously casual style, a little look at local sights, and a few more reasons to look forward to all those walks you're going to take come spring. Enjoy!
