Brooklyn Bound—A Look Perfect for Summer in the City

Brooklyn Bound—A Look Perfect for Summer in the City

Even though I’ve lived in New York City for over a year, I still enjoy finding new places to explore and returning to old favorites. This weekend, I made a trip to DUMBO, Brooklyn to check out the Brooklyn Flea and take in the Manhattan skyline. I recently purchased this Free People red maxi dress from a sample sale and this weekend seemed like the perfect opportunity to take it out for a spin.

I paired the dress with my favorite sunnies, a pair of circular, silver reflective shades. To match the sunglasses, I also wore silver jewelry including a few vintage bracelets and my staple rings and watch. Everyone needs a handbag to carry all of their stuff; I opted for this Chanel one, but you can find similar ones that don’t break the bank. To finish off the outfit, I wore a pair of black espadrille sandals complete with little silver studs to match the rest of the look.

It’s summer in New York CIty and this outfit kept me perfectly cool in the heat. Although, sitting on the subway with a bare back was less than ideal!


If you’re coming into New York City during the weekend, I definitely recommend making the trip to Brooklyn to explore the flea markets and food fests. The Brooklyn Flea features tons of vintage and antique items including cameras, clothing, knick-knacks, and so much more. Hungry? Choose from a wide selection of food stands featuring dishes from local vendors and restaurants.
