Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style and city living. Hope you have a nice stay!

Heat Wave

It's been unbearably hot these last couple weeks in NYC, which has made me incredibly lazy and sluggish. And when all your energy goes toward walking to the subway in 90-plus-degree heat and not passing out, there's very little brainpower left for outfit planning. So on a recent weekend outing to Chinatown, I kept things super simple with the perfect lazy-girl-who-wants-to-be-comfortable-but-also-cute piece--a printed romper.

I scored this House of Harlow 1960-branded romper (last worn here!) for just under $13 from The Fashion Project, which has since rebranded as Union & Fifth. If you're not familiar with them, they sell donated designer items--a good amount of which are new-with-tags--and give a portion of all sales to charitable causes.

I paired the romper with my white Call It Spring sneakers, which I've been wearing non-stop this summer and were just $21 (and they're now on sale for $15, though only a few sizes are left). I added a pair of $10 sunnies and a gifted blue backpack, bringing the whole head-to-toe look to around $44.
