What NYC Recessionista Wears: stripes with an edge

Yesterday morning, I needed to get out the door in a hurry. For me that means a simple striped top, cropped pants, sandals and an effortless necklace with a bit of an edge.

Earrings from NansGlam on Etsy (similar) / Prima Donna spike necklace (similar) / Ann Taylor striped peplum top / watch c/o Caravelle by Bulova / moon and star bangle (similar) / J. Crew minnie pant / Dansko sandals

Also … I got inked the other day. It’s a nod to my late grandmother‘s glasses … love it so much!

Yesterday was one of those perfect summer days, too — it wasn’t too hot and there was a nice breeze in NYC. And when it’s not sweltering outside, these Minnie pants from J. Crew are a definite style staple of mine.

And the peplum on the top gives it an interesting twist, instead of just being your typical t-shirt!
