This past weekend, we headed upstate for the boyfriend’s family reunion. It was a quick trip, but a refreshing respite from the daily grind. It’s amazing how beautifully different it is outside of Manhattan, whether it’s a half hour or six hour drive away. Note to self: get thyself outside of the city more often.
Whenever we do hit the road, comfort is key. I picked up this slouchy striped tank right before our trip, because it’s the kind of top that weekends are made of: loose, laid-back and ready to be lived in. Now, can the week hurry up and be Friday already??
Somethings are just meant to go together, like peanut butter and jelly, Beyonce and Jay-Z and maybe the less obvious: chiffon and crochet. It’s the ultimate summer combination: light and breezy with a boho twist. So when I saw this laid-back LWD, I knew I would be living in all season long.
If there’s anything that living in New York has taught me, it’s been mastering the art of multi-tasking to maximize my time, my productivity and most importantly: my wardrobe. I look for pieces that dabble in double duty — from desks to drinks or work to weekend — because ain’t nobody got time or closest space for a one-hit wonder. That’s why I’m loving this floral wrap skirt, which is proper enough for the office or playful enough for the outing with the girls. There’s plenty of mileage to be squeezed out of this one! So which look is your fave?
