Hot child in the city: Staying cool in the heat of NYC

Remember back in college (or wherever you were in 2006), when you were avoiding working on your visual language project (or whatever you studied) and you discovered Polyvore? Oh what a time waster it was... but really, what a great way to plan outfits, whether they be using things you own, or fantasy (oh all The Row slip dresses and Givenchy bags!) As the heat continues to turn up in NYC, allow me to share with you some chic melt-proof summer outfits... 

To Stroll The Met

Stay cool and dry with a cotton tee dress, comfy flat sneakers, and a smallish bag. Don't forget to layer delicate jewelry and add an anklet- so summery.

Happy Hour

Add red lips to a great summer work look- a sheer white tank, strappy nude heels, and a fun skirt.

For the Beach or Boat

Stay cool and protected in a panama hat, cut offs, and crisp white vans.

Job Interview 

Stay polished but not sweaty in a tailored sleeveless vest, silk tank, and neutral colors. Add a chic leather portfolio.

Sunday Brunch 

Pair a cool cotton sundress with tan booties and sunglasses to hide that hangover.
