10 Off-the-Shoulder Dresses You Need in Your Closet

Everyday Outfits, My Style

I affectionately refer to this frock as “the dress seen around the world”, and I think it’s quite fitting (both the dress and it’s moniker). It seemed like 1 in every 4 women in New York City had this exact off-the-shoulder dress in blue chambray over the summer. I’m in love with it’s black sheep cousing because of the ease in which I can transition it into fall. Just add ankle boots and an oversized cardigan, and I’ll be ready to take on the world with a pumpkin spiced latte in hand!

Here are 10 more off-the-shoulder dresses that I’ve got my eye on for fall.

Around Town: The Clocktower Restaurant at Edition Hotel

Around Town

clocktower restaurant-nyc-1

If brunching were an Olympic sport, I’d win the gold medal for sure. And with so many delicous restaurants cropping up in NYC, getting in my peak performance training would be a breeze. While I definitely have my favorite haunts that I return to time and time again, I’m always on the lookout for someplace new to add to the rotation. I first got turned on to The Clocktower restaurant (tucked away neatly inside the New York Edition Hotel) earlier this year, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Their creme-bruleed french toast is to die for, and the lobster salad is divine (it’s also super-light, so feel free to indulge in a side of fries while you’re at it).

While the food at The Clocktower is top-notch, it also doesn’t hurt that the decor and ambience are upscale, yet inviting. There’s an open billiard room and a sumptious bar. And even though the space is large (by NYC standards), it still feels cozy and intimate because its subdivided into separate dining rooms. I love bringing my gals here for brunch, or sneaking in with my husband for a quiet, romantic affair because it’s never over-crowded, and you can always snag a seat without a reservation.

So if you’re ever near Madison Square Park (and the line at Shake Shack is too daunting), consider dropping into The Clocktower restaurant for a bite!

Fun in the Sun: Old Navy Cami Dress

Everyday Outfits, My Style

End-of-summer clearance sales are my jam right now – especially when it comes to designer shoes. I debuted these Aquazzura beauties on my Instagram live story a few days ago, and they’ve been stuck to my feet like glue… actually, that would be kinda gross, but you guys get the picture (and that’s why I love you!). While I’m a die-hard online shopper, I usually find that the best deals can be found in store – like this Old Navy cami dress. It comes in a dizzying array of colors and prints, and I’ve purchased several throughout the season during one sale or another.

How to Wear Gingham {Without Looking Like a Picnic Table}

Business Casual, My Style

Ok, ok… so maybe I do look like a picnic table. I’m totally ok with that.

If you follow me on Instagram (which you should, because I post pretty pictures… and I don’t bite), then you’ll remember this dress from my live story in the Macy’s fitting room. I scored it for a whopping $28 – which is pretty impressive if I do say so myself. I enjoy the fact that it’s office-friendly, but still keeps me cool during these hot, sticky NYC summers. I know that most of my blogging brethren are on to fall fashion at this point, but I’m still happily in a summer state of mind. And as long as the temps keep hovering in the 80s and 90s, then I’ll keep on dressing accordingly. My sweaters and tights are still safely tucked away, and I’m in no hurry to unpack them for now. So bring on the gingham dresses – and matching sandals – and party on!hilfiger-gingham-dress-3how to wear gingham-dresshow to wear-j-crew-gingham-sandals-6
