City summers are hot. With 90 plus days and enough concrete to pave around the world, summer in New York City requires very specific fashion choices. My summer sartorial rule: wear as little as possible while covering enough to make the look legal. (Though going topless in NYC is lawful. Fun fact.)

And so I could look like […]Read more "ootd: Crop Tops and Stairwells"
Today was my first day interning for Good Housekeeping. Okay it was a few days ago. I’ve been slacking on writing this ootd. But upside, you get three looks for the post of one.
