What NYC Recessionista Wears: Summer Blues

Yesterday, It was disgustingly humid in NYC.  I know I’m not supposed to say things like this, but I really hate summer. But if you’ve ever walked around in the city when it’s sweltering out, then you know exactly what I mean.

It’s sticky, smelly and gross. And the only thing you can do is try to wear as little clothes as possible.

Forever 21 earrings (similar) / Bauble Bar necklace (similar) / J. Crew Factory dress / J. Crew bracelet (similar) / watch c/o Caravelle by Bulova / Madewell sandals

Not sure that this dress really passes the wrinkle test after sitting at my desk all day, but it was definitely comfortable out in the heat.

This is just one of the many goodies I purchased at the Bauble Bar sample sale … stay tuned for a full recap of what I purchased later today 🙂

I decided to make one of the out-takes an in-take — can you see my new Bare Minerals eyeshadow?

Love the exposed zipper with the grosgrain ribbon trim on this dress — it’s one of those extra special little details.
