As much as I am looking forward to Fall, I am trying to soak up as much of Summer as I can. Straw hats and short dresses are the epitome of a lazy, “nothing to do”, warm August afternoon. I choose an all black ensemble. I know what you are thinking, isn’t that reserved for colder months and New Yorkers? Noir get-ups can totally work for Summer, just look for lighter fabrics and pieces appropriate for the weather in question (i.e., sandals instead of knee high boots, but you are all smart and probably already knew that!). This shirt dress was light and airy, perfect for disguising the salad with buerre blanc sance and a side of fries I consumed at lunch. Oops.
