style x simple summer stripes

Summer in New York City is all about finding the best air-conditioned spaces to while away a hot and sticky afternoon.  Iced coffees sweating in your hand the norm. With that in mind, a simple dress and flat sandals are the easiest outfit alternative. Bonus points if your dress has pockets. I'm constantly carrying around my phone, beverage, wallet and what not that extra pockets always come in handy. Easy breezy summer styles in classic stripes and denim always deliver.

Whenever I shop, I'm immediately drawn to any black and white pattern wherever I am. Something about the elegance of both colors together always seem to catch my eye. I picked up this dress last summer, drawn by the modest length and fun checkers. My boyfriend scored a last minute reservation to Sushi Nakazawa, and I needed a quick outfit asap. As I am short and petite, it's hard to pull of such length and pattern. By paring down on accessories and everything else, it seems to work. Im obsessed with the length, as it doesn't drag on the floor and stir up dust like a maxi dress. Not to mention that it's a simple way to dress up. Wear dress, add heels, grab your bag, and you're ready to go.

It's finally warm enough to show off those legs. Albeit, pale legs. These past couple of days have been warm enough to warrant shorts. The warm weather caused me to contemplate trying on all my summer outfits before deciding on this crop top and shorts set for a coffee date with a friend. There's nothing quite like a warm afternoon in Brooklyn with iced coffee and good conversation.
