I recently spent some time at the lovely Nolitan Hotel in Nolita and immediately fell in love. The rooms are bright and cheery with great views and some even have little balconies looking out over Kenmare Street. The lobby is super stylish, complete with leather couches, bicycles and funky lighting. I wanted to sit there all day in one of the large oversized leather chairs and just read the paper. If you need a great place to stay in the city, I definitely recommend checking out this cute little spot.

I’ve been wearing sleeveless blazer vests for a while now and have always felt like they are extremely versatile and the perfect piece to throw on over anything. So whenLe Tote asked me to style this vest by BB Dakota, I couldn’t wait. I kept the look simple by wearing black, white and neutral pieces, which kept the overall outfit chic yet still classic and easy to wear.

For me, the flowy shirt dress is my go-to when it’s sweltering outside because of its loose fit and the fact that it’s easy to style. So, I thought I would make this week’s Weekly Edit (shop my Nordstrom Anniversary picks here!) all about my favorite lightweight shirt dresses!

On Sunday, Casey and I met up with friends at The Standard Beer Garden in the Meatpacking District. Even in the late afternoon, it was still 95 degrees outside, which is crazy and you feel like you want to just walk around in a bathing suit. But after battling extreme heat day after day, I get pretty tired of just wearing the same shapeless sundress or basic tank and shorts. I want to still attempt to look stylish even if it’s roasting outside!
So I decided to take it up a notch and actually style myself despite the sweltering weather. I was hot, but because this white lightweight sheath of a dress is so breathable and flowy it allowed for my skin to breathe and not feel smothered. I wore a silky slip underneath since the top layer is see-through and belted it to create a more shapely silhouette.
Now onto the hair. When you have long hair and you wear it down when it’s hot, it can really add extra heat. So I always make sure to whip my hair up into either a messy bun or milkmaid braids (watch my tutorial here!) so that I still feel cute without my neck feeling like I’m wearing an unnecessary summer scarf.
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and here’s to a productive and happy week! xo

Finally sharing this romper with you guys, which was one of the items I scooped up during a recent Bloomingdales shopping haul. This one piece is great because it’s so easy to style – you just have to be a bit mindful of the top portion because it falls open, potentially leaving you quite exposed if you’re not careful! My quick remedy was to just slip on a black bandeau (you could also do a tank) and you’re all set!
P.S. I did a fun video shoot featuring this romper plus two other pieces that I recently bought from Bloomingdales, which you can watch here!

Lately, I have been trying out crop tops and matching two-pieces more and more. It’s new and exciting for me but I’ve found when wearing the right pieces, these slightly intimidating styles can look really cute and feminine. I also think the reason I love two-piece outfits is because more often than not, they can be worn separately. That said, I definitely plan to remix these two pieces sooner than later, so stay tuned!
The other day I popped into Bloomingdales because I was feeling very blah about my wardrobe and wanted to add some more colorful pieces to my closet. So I picked up a handful of really cute, patterned rompers, colorful dresses and this incredibly bright and flirty skirt from Aqua. I was initially drawn to this skirt because of it’s bold color, accentuated pleats and neoprene material, and because I don’t have a lot of pink in my closet, I decided to go out on a limb and purchase it for fun. I had a great time styling it up, and it didn’t hurt that I had an amazing view as my backdrop.
