ASOS dress (see it as a full dress here),
Thrifted maxi skirt (similar style here),
Alexander Wang crossbody bag,
Vintage jewelry (from Lauren's gdma).
You know it's hot in Brooklyn when every block has a Fire Hydrant spewing water into the street! Although, I must say I don't mind being misted once in awhile when walking around the hood.
Despite the heat, I decided to add some layers to my look by tossing a printed maxi over a shorter dress to give both an instant upgrade. I've never layered a long skirt over a minidress before, but I'm kind of digging the outcome. And what a great way to instantly double your wardrobe!
As for accessories, I dressed up the look with a dash of silver, incorporating some vintage jewelry I inherited from my grandmother, Micol's awesome Wang crossbody bag, and these new jeweled sandals I received from Fibi & Clo. I rarely wear flats, but the elegant shape and design of these sandals had me sprung. And you wouldn't believe how affordable they are... which is perfect for me because after a summer of bbqs, concerts, weekend trips, and lots of running around in the heat, my shoes (not to mention my feet) are usually totally destroyed.
