Light + Loose

It's been outta control muggy here in NYC lately, which means the less you can wear, the better. But since heading to work in barely-there clothing is frowned upon, I've been on the hunt for loose-fit shift dresses that I can keep me cool without showing too much skin.

I took a chance on this $15 shift dress from Charlotte Russe, and it's the perfect style + length to go from work (just add a light sweater!) to happy hour. (The site actually has a bunch of cute, off-the-shoulder shift dresses currently on sale, including this one, this one, and this one, all priced at $20.)

I finished off the look with a pair of $10 sunglasses (similar ones for under $15 here), and a pair of white mule, which came c/o Dorothy Perkins. Head to toe, the whole simple, less-is-more summer look came out to around $25.
