Sometimes it takes going to Brooklyn to remember that Manhattan is actually an island — surrounded by water, without a beach (sigh).  We took these pictures in the middle of the most sweltering summer that New York city has ever seen, and this Alexander Wang dress is so simple and lovely that you can’t even tell how uncomfortable it was outside.

And I have something I should either be very excited about or very embarrassed by: I belted this dress… with a headband.  A really cute, braided Forever 21 elastic headband for which I took “One Size Fits All” a little bit too literally.  And when, after these photos were taken, I had regained my ability to breathe, I was pretty happy with how they turned out.

This outfit could have veered into the simple/boring range if not for these amazing AHA sandals that Charlie My Love sent me.  I’m beyond obsessed with them — I have literally been stopped in the street by strangers asking me who made them.  I am not making that up.  And since I regularly stop strangers who have clothes that I really like, I know for a fact that there’s no bigger compliment.

T by Alexander Wang dress, gifted Charlie My Love sandals, borrowed Demitasse bullet necklace, Forever 21 headband/belt.
