A Summer Look

Summer is in full swing here in NYC, and the heat is raging on. You would think a childhood spent between Jamaica and Miami would make the NY sun a total walk in the park…NOT. I’ve quickly realized that there’s pretty much no chance of cooling down so I’ve packed up all my pants, and pretty much every top with sleeves (they’re all sitting under my bed because my tiny NYC closet can only hold one season’s clothes at a time. Yikes.) Anyhow, this outfit pretty much exemplifies my Summer ’16 style: mini dress (spring purchase from Topshop, similar here), denim shirt (ancient Zara purchase but similar here on sale!), and a good ole pair of Converse. The denim shirt is a must-have in everyone’s closet; it goes with almost anything and adds a pop of style to the most basic of outfits. During summer, it stays tied around my waist but when fall hits, I’ll be using it for one of my fave outfits: the Canadian tuxedo.  For some of my past summer style favorites, see here and here.
