What NYC Recessionista Wears: focal point

Yesterday, I decided to keep things super simple … just a navy blue sun dress from J. Crew (similar here and here) with a ruffled neckline, and my Bauble Bar turquoise earrings (similar here and here).

I threw my hair up in a ponytail, lined my eyes and braved myself for the heat wave.

I love a ruffle at the neckline, because it brings the eye right up to your neckline, diverting the attention away from where you don’t want it 🙂

How do you stay stylish in the heat?
