This week it’s pretty much been too hot to function. I was trying not to sweat too much in these pictures because I didn’t want to look like such a mess! On days like this, I try to wear as little clothing as possible, which consists of a top and skirt or a dress when I’m headed to work. After work this day, I headed to my friend’s apartment in Brooklyn for a little impromptu dinner. The houses in the neighborhood where she lives are so cute and have lovely flowers growing out front.

Tell me: What do you wear when you feel like you’re melting whenever you step outside?

I’m curious to know- do you guys wear perfume at all? If you do, do you have one signature scent or do you like to wear different scents throughout the day? I myself fall into the second category- I put on a little perfume every morning and if I’m going out at night I’ll reapply the same fragrance or put on a new one. I like my daytime fragrances to be light and fresh, while my nighttime perfumes are a little more bold.

Have you heard of the new perfume from Vera Wang- Vera Wang Be Jeweled? It has several fruity notes, such passion fruit, pomegranate and currant and is described as “sprited, feminine and independent.” The bottle is very girly with a pink crystal shape and jewel embellishments. I can definitely see myself spritzing this on a night before meeting up for drinks with some girlfriends. Check out the video with ballet dancer-turned-model (how cool is that?) Laura Love and let me know what you think in the comments below if you’ve tried this perfume!

Every time I wear this dress I feel a little bit like a fifties housewife. I can imagine wearing this under a frilly little apron as I prepare dinner before my family comes home. Something about the collar and the shape feels vintage-inspired, but maybe that’s just me? Of course, if I really were a fifties housewife there’s no way I’d be wearing this with sandals ;)

Last Friday when Babe and I got out of work, we decided to walk over to Madison Square Park since Babe had a coupon for a free shake from Shake Shack. On our way there, we spotted those colorful umbrellas that were put up for some kind of event. Unsurprisingly, the line at Shake Shack was super long and we decided not to wait. Instead we went to Pret a Manger where she grabbed a sandwich and I grabbed an iced coffee. I can’t tell you how delicious that iced coffee tasted on that hot summer afternoon- it’s the little things, right?

So I have to confess- I actually wore this outfit on a Wednesday and not a Friday. I’m pretty lucky that I work in an office where I can get away with wearing something this casual to work. I feel most comfortable in outfits that are no fuss, especially in the summer when it gets too hot to function. To add a little sparkle to this very basic outfit, I wore my new triangle necklace from Forever 21 and this blingy tribal ring from Kensie.

I kind of feel like I’m about to exhaust my summer wardrobe which is not good because we have many more weeks of summer left! I’m feeling the itch to go shopping pretty strongly and I might go scouting for some good deals this weekend.

Tell me: What was the last thing you bought?
