Wow, I can’t believe I still have outfit photos from my first summer trip to New York way back when in June. I wore this the first day when Jill and I were hailing cab after cab getting to our destinations. Our first stop of the day was meeting up with our blogger friend, Maria, from Chicago who was leaving the same day we arrived. So what do three Chicago bloggers do in New York? We lunched at Fred’s, obviously.
After lunch, we stopped to smell the flowers and relax a bit at Bryant Park before our next appointment (hint I’ll be posting about that experience tomorrow). I just love how there are parks everywhere in such a bustling city.
Then the usual happened: shopping, exploring the city, attending a new art gallery exhibition and of course, late night dining in the rain and a Gossip Girl sighting. Sooo New York.

Pleats, polka dots and peaks of orange make this preppy dress so dreamy. It’s very hard to resist a Maison Jules dress because the fit and style always fit like they were made just for me. The lightweight material made for a breezy day shopping in SoHo and eating macaroons.
Once you find a brand, cut or length to a dress or any article of clothing, stick with that brand/cut/length. Knowing your body type is better than just wearing something that’s just trendy. A big part of personal style is knowing what fits your body and how you express that. And it’s definitely alright to experiment with different fabrics, prints, lengths, etc..
