A White Midi Skirt

Happy Friday! This week flew by and I can’t believe it’s already mid July!!! I’m heading to Santa Barbara tomorrow with Belmond Hotels for a little wine tasting + polo tournament. I’m really excited for a change of scenery! I’ll be packing this outfit for the wine tasting. It’s another easy + breezy summer look that’s become my “uniform” for summer. I love the faint pink + white stripe pattern on this Something Navy shirt from Nordstrom. It’s an oversized/long fit so it looks great as a pool/beach coverup, tucked into jeans, or worn tied up at the waist. I would size down in this shirt for sure. I’m wearing a small here, but definitely could have comfortably fit into an XS. This shirt also comes in blue + white which is equally as cute! A White Midi Skirt I paired the soft button down with this white midi skirt which is soooo lightweight and moves beautifully when you walk. I ordered a Medium because I usually love a looser fit with my casual skirts, but to be honest, I should have gotten a Small! It runs true to size, but if you’re in between sizes – I would say size down, especially if you’re on the shorter side. To give you reference, I’m almost 5’7″ and I usually wear a size 2 or 4. This skirt also comes in a fun polka dot and black floral pattern. Other midi skirts I am LOVING from Nordstrom are this cream slip skirt, this orange and white polka dot skirt, this navy and white pinstripe pencil skirt. (So chic for fall!). This linen skirt, and this black + white floral skirt. Midi skirts can be paired with button downs, off the shoulder blouses, simple Ts, bodysuits – you name it. They look gorgeous for day or night, and can even be worn throughout the fall + winter with boots and leather jackets! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally OPEN to the public, and it is absolutely worth shopping. A few things that I am coveting are; these distressed jeans, this long cardigan, this cute plaid boyfriend shirt, this simple chambray, this houndstooth blazer, this cargo jacket, this cozy V neck sweater, this pretty white blouse, these plaid trousers, and this easy linen jumpsuit. Be sure to shop the rest of my picks below! Enjoy your weekend!

Summer Style on Bleecker

I have been soaking up every second of this gorgeous summer weather! It’s been in the 80s all week in NYC and I’ve been out and about, wearing all of my light summer pieces. I picked up this black silk skirt in Montauk the other weekend at the Bluestone Lane Collective boutique – and I love the way it drapes. It’s from a small Aussie designer and also comes in white. This skirt is super similar and only $78. I paired the slip skirt with a soft white button down from Abercrombie and tied it at the waist. This tied up blouse + skirt combo has become my go-to summer look and is perfect to throw on if I don’t know what to wear! Abercrombie has the best button downs if you’re looking for a few new ones to spruce up your wardrobe! These lace up sandals are a few seasons old from Club Monaco. They carry this pair online now, and then this Madewell pair is super similar. I own them in the darker brown color and can attest they’re great quality/comfortable to walk for long periods of time in. I was strolling along Bleecker Street in the West Village the other day and was so excited to see that The Daily Edited opened a shop there now! Honestly, I love their leather luggage, cosmetic cases and iPhone cases. I picked up this cute monogram iPhone case at the boutique and it was ready in 15 minutes. You can customize the font and colors – so fun right?!
