Easy Summer Outfit

Meatpacking District, NY

Summer in NYC is HOT and HUMID. You step outside and are pretty much drenched in sweat 15 minutes later lol. So the key for getting dressed in the summer is finding LIGHT pieces that are breathable and relaxed.

This is my go-to easy summer outfit.

You’ll never believe that this skirt is under $30! Yes! H&M has the cutest stuff from apparel to home goods – and I am particularly loving their skirt selection this season. You know I love a midi length anything, and they have a zillion midi length skirts that flatter any silhouette. The skirt I’m wearing also comes in a red floral pattern. I currently have my eye on this simple black cotton skirt!

It’s soooo airy, lightweight and looks cute for running errands, a casual dinner date, brunch with the girls, or shopping.

I love tying a simple white button down at the waist with a skirt like this. Your waist instantly gets cinched and it’s a more playful take on a classic button down. Abercrombie is another brand that has really been stepping up their game and has a ton of affordable, well made, summery pieces.

For accessories, I brought out my favorite leather bucket bag from Mansur Gavriel that I’ve had for years. I also have it in the tan leather and have worn it to death. They’re such quality bags and will be in style for years to come.

I’ve gotten a lot of questions asking if these Hermes Oran sandals are worth it – and in my opinion, yes they are. They’re another quality staple piece that I’ve worn into the ground and that have really held up. They’re timeless and soooo comfortable. Head to my Summer outfits section to get more outfit inspo for the season!

    I love that the top and the skirt are affordable and are classic needs for anyone closet. I have been looking for summer outfits that can transition nicely to the fall and these are great! I have loved your outfits for many years.
