Summer Knits: Loose Rust Knit Top, White Button Through Denim Skirt, Cognac Platform Sandals and Faux-Croc Bag with Gold Chain and Bamboo Detail


With wedding season in full swing and my unrelenting work schedule, I was thrilled last weekend to finally have some free time to do what I love most – roam this gorgeous city – brunch with friends, a museum jaunt and some rooftop cocktails – my summer weekend dreams were fulfilled.  For my day of fun, I wanted to wear something cute enough to fit in with the fashionably clad nyc brunch and rooftop goers, but still comfy enough to walk from place to place.

I can’t get enough of 70’s inspired looks (and they seem to always be on trend or coming back in trend), so I’ve been meticulously gathering 70’s inspired pieces for some time now and couldn’t wait to wear them for my funday.  One of my favorite summer items is a white button through denim mini skirt that can be paired with just about anything – a tank, t-shirt, blouse, etc. etc. – it’s a great versatile piece to add to your summer arsenal while incorporating one of the most popular trends right now (button through designs).  And, the a-line silhouette is great for all body types, as it helps to create the illusion of a slimmer waistline as it floats away from the hips.  To keep things breezy (it was a scorcher last weekend), I wore a loose knit, rust colored crew neck top.  The sheer effect of the top keeps things interesting and sexy, but the crew neck and loose fit ensures you’re not showing too much.  To stay 70’s inspired, I wore my comfiest pair of cognac platform sandals.  To compliment the rich hue of the rust colored top and keep the overall look warm, I wore a rich brown faux croc bag with gold chain and bamboo detail, antique gold snake bracelet and cushion cut citrine studs and ring.  I finished the look with a pair of oversized black cat eye Tom Ford sunglasses.
