There was something so not New York about this alcove, which made it fun to snap a few photos in. Like a little California escape, smack dab in the middle of the Lower East Side! Sometimes it’s good to just get away…even if only for a day, or even if only in a picture.

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.

There are few things that bring me as much joy as finding a great vintage dress. Not only is it somewhat rewarding to come across a cute one that actually fits, but it’s also nice knowing you won’t run into someone on the street with the same outfit. Paired this dainty little number from We Move Vintage with my trusty (and comfortable) studded booties, for an afternoon of running errands around town. Yay for productivity!
