New York Fashion and Personal Style Blog: Printed maxi dress, patent leather clutch, leopard mules

Loose, lightweight dresses (like this one and this one) have definitely become go-to’s for me in learning to cope with temperatures upward of 75 degrees. I love it when you can put on one piece and basically call it a day. Or, if you so desire, take your look a step further with some happy pattern play! Randomly incorporating a little leopard might be my favorite way to throw things off.

    I agree. A “onesie” ;) is great in the summer heat. This dress has a cool 70’s vibe to it and the shoes are the perfect addition!

    Gorgeous combination of prints, with the dress and mules! Love the shape of the dress :)

    Floaty dresses are SO key for dealing with the East Coast heat – this summer has been absurd! I love the pattern of this one – looks sort of retro-garden party.
