One of the best things about living in NY is that there’s style inspiration on every street corner. I love this menswear stripe with clean black denim and a lady-like low heel.
Temperatures are dropping. Clinging to your sandals and easy slides? I think these mostly closed shoes are a great solution! Hold on to the last bits of summer with every ounce of strength!
Also, can we talk about how effortless and easy this look is? NYC women have great style, indeed. I can’t remember if this was a dress or separates. Personally, I like the idea of combining two pieces for maximum comfort and wardrobe versatility!

Loving the ease and simplicity of this. A white tee with a classic navy and white polka dot pencil skirt? Done and done. Get in on this look before temperatures hit frigid. (Double bags, optional.)

I love a sundress! When it comes to outfitting, I’m totally overwhelmed. Most of the time I feel like an awkward sixth grader.
Living in New York and being around an overwhelming amount of good looking and well-dressed people is super helpful. I’m always snapping photos of people’s outfits to draw later (like a complete creeper.)
This ensemble is a great example of a lesson to be learned. The sundress. Easy, effortless, cute, and airy. Perfect for summer. Do it. And, if you’re brave – do it in solid white.

It’s another street style sketch! I saw this trendy cutie in Soho and had to take a creeper photo to draw later.
I’m kind of torn when it comes wearing designer’s names. Especially after reading “I’ll Drink to That,” by Betty Halbreich I’m more aware of how seeing a brand name influences my desire to buy. (Ashamedly, it has made a difference.)
I think there is a bit of glamor and romance associated with wearing luxury designer labels. Like, if you wear Givenchy, you’re basically Audrey Hepburn, right? Or, how in Tokyo, for example, there’s a certain amount of distinction connected to carrying expensive designer bags. In a way, if your income exceeds a certain amount, you’re almost expected to carry the bag. (Or, maybe, it’s the other way around.)
But personally, I don’t want to care about those things! I want to dress and be authentic. Style should be a reflection of self, not earnings, right?
Anyway, hats off to this girl who went balls to the walls with (looks like Dior, right?) a cross-body Vuitton bag and (I think) Stella McCartney platforms. I mean, maybe this is her genuine self. And, if it is, you go girl. Own it.

Spotted these summer cuties in Soho the other weekend. Shopping with your bestie is definitely the best!I was immediately drawn to their coordinating, but individual styles. They looked like they were plucked from the pages of a magazine. So, I had to take my creeper photo to sketch later.
I love the fun fashion details. And, I love how the girl on the left added interest to her all black attire with full sleeves and a hint of gingham at her feet. Plus, you know I love nothing more than an easy effortless summer dress. These fashion friends know what’s up.
