Why, hello there. Apologies for being unceremoniously AWOL for the past few weeks. I've been busy graduating college and accepting my first grown-up job. Yay, adulthood! Or something resembling it.
It's summer in the city and it's nothing short of magic. Ever since a 16 year old me spent her first balmy summer months in New York, it has been my favorite time of the year in my favorite city in the world. Outdoor concerts, al fresco dining, sipping iced coffees on West Village stoops, day trips to Coney Island - what's not to love? The heat doesn't bother me, being from a country with a much more formidable summer.
I have a few weeks of absolute, uninhibited leisure time before I start working full-time and I intend to take full advantage of it. This gorgeous lace dress in a shell hue by Keepsake is the perfect sultry day companion. I'm also loving Make Beauty's matte lipsticks for long staying power and a pop of brightness.
