Weekly Round-up: What’s On My (Style) Radar This Week…

1. Current favorite summer dress:


This light and breezy dress from Urban Outfitters is on heavy rotation this summer; luckily, I have four different versions of it (two sleeveless, two with short sleeves as seen here).  It’s only $60 and has a kind of feminine grungy vibe I’m loving right now– plus it can we worn with sneaks, sandals, or heels, and with booties and a moto jacket come Fall.  Linked here and here.

2. Finally picked up these Schutz Lace-up sandals!


Literally, couldn’t resist. I’ve worn them for 3 days straight, taking them off only to sleep. Pick them up here.

3. (It was a big week, shoe-wise)– ASOS Pointed Toe Loafers:


Pointed toe loafers are going to continue to be huge for Fall, and I couldn’t be happier.  I’ve never been a huge fan of ballet flats– too feminine and cutesy for me, personally (although I do love how they look on some girls)– so in the flat/comfy shoes department, I rely on classic sneaks like Converse, or a sharp, masculine but funky pointed toe loafer for when I don’t feel like or can’t wear heels.  These Celine loafers are THE DREAM, but since I’m not ready to shell out that kinda cash at this point, these two pairs from European online fashion retailer ASOS will do the trick perfectly…shop both, under $100 here and here.

4. A Fashionable Heritage:


The Metropolitan Museum of Art is running the China Through the Looking Glass exhibit in the city through September 7th, showcasing “the impact of Chinese aesthetics on Western fashion”.  Since I’m a proud fashion-loving halfie (half Chinese, half Caucasian) <3, I can’t wait to see gorgeous creations like this Jean Paul Gaultier above, live and in person. Link for more information on the exhibit here.

5. The BEST summer soup in the city:


Tim and I went to Cookshop in Chelsea last weekend and has the most AMAZING chilled yellow tomato, jalapeno and cucumber soup…and the cheddar cornbread on the side only added to the deliciousness.  I am a huge fan of tomato soup in general (lol at that sentence!), and this cool summer iteration could not be any more perfect for a warm sidewalk summer brunch.

Mix Must-Have: The Return of the One-Piece Swimsuit

Island Vibes One Piece: Private Party via Revolve Clothing (linked below)| Metallic Pool Slides: Vince via Saks Off Fifth (on sale!)

No matter what your body type, rejoice! One-piece swimsuits are THE trendiest cut of swimwear happening this summer…and when you think about it, its really no huge surprise…with the huge 90s influence on fashion the past few seasons, isn’t it only natural that our favorite “Baywatch” bathing suit style from the 90s reached our shores?! (that’s BaYwatch with a Y– decades before “BaEwatch” became a thing …ew I feel so old but so grateful to not be a teenager currently lol).  Also, there really isn’t much more style-wise that you can do with a bikini– we’ve seen and done it all: string, triangle, halter, bandeau…it just makes sense for the fashion world to dip into something we all would have considered ew, gross, dorky or questioned whether our moms would have worn or would still wear or associate with kickflips and a 100 meter butterfly…

To be clear, the one piece suits I’m loving currently are very 90s inspired…not pinup-y or cutesy or girly really…more sporty/sexy, with high cut legs and low cut tops with a super low back…and totally flattering no matter what your body type!

This “Island Vibes” suit I have on here is from Revolve Clothing, but they are currently sold out of this style.  The designer is “Private Party”, and I linked the original suit I’m wearing plus a few other cute ones I like in the same cut from this designer as well.  The fit of these Private Party suits is ON POINT, I promise! I also chose some other one piece styles that I’m currently loving– the brand Solid and Striped is HUGE right now as well…prepare to see these simple, well made, superbly cut suits on lots of famous peeps and your friends alike (as well as all over Instagram!)

Happy one-piece shopping!

Look: Leather & Distressed


Leather and Chiffon Tank: Elizabeth and James via Saks Off Fifth (sold out, similar linked below!)| Cutoffs: One Teaspoon Bandit Shorts via Shopbop | Sandals: J. Crew |Leather Crossbody: Gucci Soho Disco | All available items linked below: 🙂

A black leather (or faux leather if that’s more your speed or style) is a must have, in my opinion, for every stylish gal’s wardrobe– it can be paired with literally ANYTHING, as it’s a neutral color and cut, but the fabric and texture really bring edge and life to an otherwise simple or boring outfit.  One of my absolute favorite things to pair a this leather tank (found at Saks Off Fifth for about $120; real leather with a chiffon underlay for an awesome hard/soft contrast!) with is distressed denim: baggy boyfriend jeans in the winter and fall, and these cutoffs in the summer (albeit, today wasn’t super hot or humid, hence why I was able to wear this top lol). I also like pairing a leather tank under a blazer for work, with a poufy or feminine skirt, with structured colored or denim culottes, or even under overalls… This exact top is sold out, and I wasn’t able to track it down for you guys anywhere, so I linked a few similar options I like below– now these aren’t the thriftiest purchases, true– most of the ones below are over $100– but this is me trying to convince you that this particular purchase is worth it and you will find yourself wearing this top with 9579453947 different outfits, I swear!

Look: Festival Style// 90s Kid at Heart <3





Grey mock neck tank: Urban Outfitters|White distressed denim cutoffs: One Teaspoon via Shopbop | White Converse via Shopbop | Plaid Flannel: Madewell (sold out)| Tortoise Aviators: Wildfox Couture | Bag: Loeffler Randall (exact one sold out, similar here)

I wore this 90s inspired look to the Great South Bay Music Festival on Long Island this weekend…we went to see The MightyMightyBossTones and 311 (commence flashbacks!) …so this outfit was a natural fit & gave a nod to the grungy era as well! I didn’t want to go typical festival- flower-crown-boho-fringe (although you guys know I LOVE my fringe!) this time, so I paired these One Teaspoon white baggy cutoffs, (perfectly distressed, not too tight, most flattering cut ever!!!) with this mock turtleneck tank from Urban Outfitters (who thought mock turtlenecks would ever make fashion blog status!?! Well, guys…prepare yourselves, because you’re going to be seeing A LOT of this 90s cut EVERYWHERE!!!)…The flannel gave the look an extra grungy touch (and kept me warm once the sun went down–and until then, stayed “perfectly tied around my waist” as my husband lovingly described <3)…and white Converse kept it sporty and classic.  Click the links above to shop this whole look!
