What I wore on my summer New York City trip!

I recently spent a weekend in New York City with my brother, and it was an awesome trip. There really is nothing like summer time in a big city, and New York is no exception to this rule. The beautiful architecture mixed with greenery and the liveliness brought with the warm weather made visiting old favorites and new places magical.

It could be that The Devil Wears Prada is set in New York or that most fashion icon characters live in this city (including my favorites, Blair Waldorf and Serena Van Der Woodsen), but when I visit NYC, I feel the need to make sure my style is top notch.

Here’s a roundup of what I wore for a summer weekend in New York City!

Day 1


For the first day in New York, I wanted to make sure my outfit was comfortable and breathable – perfect for a 6 a.m. plane ride and the summer heat. I decided to wear my favorite paperbag shorts with a white tie-front crop top. I wore my trusty Steve Madden sandals and my favorite black cateye sunglasses. (Iced coffee made an appearance as an accessory. Did you expect anything less of me?)

Day 2


For a day of visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Central Park and the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, I wanted to dress up a little bit. I wore a sage green zip-front skirt with a gingham lettuce-edged tube top. To save space in the suitcase, my sandals, sunglasses and bag were the same as outfit 1.

Day 3


I decided to wear something a little out of my comfort zone for day 3: a jumpsuit! I never thought I could pull one off, thinking it would look strange on my body type, but this piece was so much fun to wear! It was perfect for a chilly summer afternoon, and with the pink and cream stripes and bow in the front, this jumpsuit was practically made for my style. I paired it with tan sandals and dainty jewelry.
