august. outfits.

Channeling those summatime vibes.

“I blinked, and then all of a sudden it was September.” Story of my life. I can’t believe that it’s already Labor Day weekend — where did summer go?! I fully intend on making the most out of these few remaining weeks before fall weather officially kicks in. For now, I’m sharing my favorite outfits from August (which also just so happen to be all the looks I wore in NYC). Speaking of which, I hope to have a recap of my trip up sometime next week. Fingers crossed!


Day 1: I opted for a super casual, laid-back look since I knew I’d be traveling by train for a good bit of the day (and you just never know how chilly it’s going to be!). I styled my favorite Industry Standard jeans with a lipstick print top and d’Orsay flats for a low-key evening spent at the New Museum.


Day 2: Doesn’t this outfit just scream summer in the city?! I wore this sophisticated look for an afternoon spent shopping in the Flatiron District (one of my favorite areas in NYC!) and participating in First Fridays (I stopped by the Neue Galerie and the Morgan Library & Museum). My ruffled top is by YSTR, the skirt is Scotch & Soda and the sandals are from Madewell.


Day 3: Reasons why I love NYC: Mornings spent exploring SoHo and afternoons at the Whitney. Oh, and walking along The High Line afterwards! This easy-breezy tribal print dress from Duo proved to be perfect for the hot and humid weather we were having that day. I finished off my look with an old pair of Sam Edelman gold gladiators.


Day 4: We started the day out at the Cooper Hewitt (a very cool design museum on the Upper East Side) before venturing off to the Met and the Met Breuer. A trip to the Met rooftop always calls for a LBD — this time was no exception. My super cute heart necklace is from Ban.do., BTW.


Day 5: If only all Mondays could be as perfect as they are when in NYC. Since we had already hit the Upper East Side, SoHo, Flatiron and the Meatpacking district, the first half of our Monday was spent in lower Manhattan checking out the “Oculus” designed by Santiago Calatrava, which is located at the World Trade Center. I’ll talk more about that in my trip recap post, but the architecture was ah-maz-ing (definitely a look-up kind of moment). Anyway, shown here is a lovely floral Free People dress teamed with a seasonal lemonade I picked up from by Chloe.  



Day 6: I can’t explain it, but there’s something so iconic about a Lacoste polo. I’ve had mine for about five years now, and I still love finding different ways to style it. For a quick photo op outside the New York Public Library, I paired it with a metallic skort that I bought from J.Crew last summer. The result was modern preppy with a twist.

Are you sad to see summer go? How will you be transitioning your summer clothes for fall? Let me know in the comments below!
