ON REPEAT: Slip Dress + Tee with Aerie

Two closet essentials by Aerie – a striped tee and slip dress. I’m all about a 90’s comeback! Wearing a classic slip dress like this over a t-shirt makes this #OOTD super fun and casual.

It’s a perfect outfit for running around NYC in the summer heat. Paired with my go-to sneakers of the moment adds a little edge to my look and not to mention, super comfortable which is so important.

I love the versatility of these two pieces – rocking the tee with a pair of jeans or wearing the slip dress by itself for a night out on the town is definitely in my future. These are two key pieces in my wardrobe I know I’ll be wearing on repeat.

Rooftops are probably one of my favorite things about NYC. There’s something about being sky high among the tall buildings and feeling like you’re on top of the world. You can feel this way at The Skylark — a hidden gem in midtown Manhattan.

When you’re looking for a great spot to hang with your friends after work, The Skylark is the perfect Monday-Friday lounge. Besides the Instagramworthy views, the menu offers some delicious items that are for sure to leave your work worries behind.

I had the pleasure of checking out this NYC hotspot on a Friday evening. For these early Fall nights, I love a great shirt dress. This one is a neutral number from Forever 21. That’s right — this dress was a steal and the perfect day to night silhouette.

I love shades of white and cream that allows your summer tan to pop for a perfect contrast. To add a bit of color, I added these fun turquoise earrings from H&M – another steal for under $13.00!

I added my Scotch & Soda beaded clutch I scored at a sample sale last summer and my go-to All Saints pumps and I was ready to hit the city in style. To make this dress transition into the cooler weather we’ve been feeling lately, I love a great structured blazer on top or your favorite leather bomber jacket to edge it up.

Be sure to check out the Skylark to enjoy amazing views of the city that never sleeps. 🙂
