Steamy Summer

Tuesday, July 19, 2016


The peak of summer has officially hit here in New York, clearly indicated by the unbearable levels of heat and humidity. It's funny to think that just a few years ago I would have thrown on a Brandy Melville graphic crop top and denim cutoffs at this time of year. Personal style changes so quickly depending on the needs of our lifestyles.

Since starting work the limited time I have to shop is spent searching for truly useful pieces. At the height of summer that means work-appropriate items that are light enough for weekend walks. They say you can never go wrong with a little black dress, and in this case I've taken it to maxi lengths. A long breezy dress will take you not only from day to night, but also from summer into fall. The accessories may change with your style, but a great LBD has no limits.

  21. I love the knot-detail on the dress! It really adds some interest to the silhouette and keeps it from looking like a potato sack.
