Country Mouse, City Mouse

Big news! The Little Orange Dress has moved to New York City!! And me along with it of course.

To start this adventure off right I am bringing you a city-inspired outfit today, featuring my first (and so far only) purchase in the city, this ruffle tee. It's a shame that summer is winding down just as I found this tee because it is definitely at the top of my favorites list right now. Its loose fitting silhouette is perfect for those hot days when you don't want anything clingy against you skin, and almost every day I've been in New York has been like that! And then the drop-waist peplum ruffle is just too cute not to want to wear it all the time. 

Since this country mouse knows very little about city life I've been keeping my eyes peeled and observing the city dwellers and taking note of their styles of dress. There are so many interesting people in the city, and so many different fashion statements to be seen! To compliment my own outfit I donned black shorts and a rosy statement necklace with simple sandals so that I was comfortable for a casual outing but wouldn't get lost in the crowd! 

Tee: H&M. Shorts: Forever 21. Necklace: J. Crew (similar in black, similar, similar). Sandals: DV via Saks Off 5th. Clutch: J. Crew (similar). Bracelets: Ruche, Zulu Grass.
