In New York City, shopping can be an all-day endeavor. You can literally shop in Times Square at midnight if you wanted to — it’s kind of a problem. To make sure that you aren’t burnt out by noon, it’s imperative to make sure you’re wearing comfortable shoes. Nothing kills the mood like blisters — trust me. This Fashionista’s go-to shopping outfit consists of a light top, dark wash skinnies and strappy black sandals.
Comfort is key when you’re running around the city. I love the fit of her loose lavender peplum tank. It provides the perfect contrast between her dark wash jeans and black accessories. Cotton is such a brilliant fabric for summer because it’s light, breezy and comfortable, plus the pastel hue is stunning against her skin tone.
With their harsh lighting and unflattering mirrors, dressing rooms are hellish enough as it is. Maintain your sanity and wear simple pieces that are easy to slip in and out of while your trying things on.
Black accessories are an instant classic addition to any ensemble. This Fashionista is totally channeling blogger Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific, with her round sunnies and blonde waves. A sensible black carry-all is perfect for shopping. You can even do your part for the environment by skipping a bag from the store and putting your purchases straight into your purse.
One Simple Change: On a particularly warm day, jeans might be too much to handle. Slip into a pair of distressed denim shorts to create a more casual summer ensemble for going out on midday adventures with your friends.
