scuba gear.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; Baukjen Carlisle black and blue shift dress; L.A.M.B. black and white clutch; Gorjana & Griffin gold alphabet disc bracelet; Pour La Victoire Mai black patent wedge pump; zeroUV mirrored aviator sunglassesI can’t say that I’ve ever been scuba diving, but I find the whole idea of an underwater adventure completing invigorating.  When I put on this wet suit inspired dress, I felt instantly transformed.  I love the minimalist look: a form-fitting frock paired with simple modern accessories.  I feel ready for a deep sea adventure — as long as I don’t have to get my hair wet.

last hurrah.

Wonder leopard calf hair skinny cuffI can’t believe I’m admitting this, but I’m starting to switch my wardrobe from summer to fall.  The first things to go into hibernation: bright pastels and overtly spring-ish floral prints.

While I was saying farewell to a few of my seasonal faves, I found this coral dress that I hadn’t worn since last June.  I couldn’t bear the thought of waiting another year to wear it again, so I mixed it in with a few of my fall staples for one last floral hurrah.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; style blog; 2013 pre-fall outfit photos; London Times Mirror Print Scuba Dress; Banana Republic white sparkle stone necklace; Michael Kors white leather straw clutch; Juicy Couture black pave pyramid stretch bracelet; CC Skye Maize gold geometric bracelet; Zara white beige colorblock heelThere are a few things in life that will never get old: morning strolls by the water, the view of the Manhattan skyline, and floral print frocks.  … Okay, so maybe the first two have a little more longevity, but I love that there’s an infinite amount of ways to wear florals.  This is my first foray into mirrored prints and I’m really digging the sleek and modern twist on an otherwise everyday classic.  This dress will definitely be in heavy rotation both in and out of the office as we transition from summer to fall.
