I love living in Brooklyn, where I’m able to roam the streets of Williamsburg on the weekends with awesome friends full of laughter and carefree… The fact that my friend and I basically went restaurant hoping for around 30 mins, simply because there were so many options to decide from and we’re both oh so indecisive. During our restaurant contemplation, we stopped by the Brooklyn Flea, which was full of cool things, mostly vintage items perfect for the Brooklyn stereotype. Some cute vintage Hawaiian shirt that kind reminded me of being back in Jamaica.
Dress & Shoes- Forever 21
Overall it was a pretty great day spent in Williamsburg. It was super hot which is why this oversized A-line dress fit perfectly for the occasion, as I was able to keep very cool and comfortable. The embroidery on the dress is my favourite part about it because it gives such a Baroque feeling, contrasting against the darkness of the dress.
I kept it pretty simply, and just an awesome silver necklace made out of tiny little spoons and flat loafers from Forever 21 kept me extra comfortable since we were walking around a whole lot.

There’s something about this top that I absolutely can’t get over because I’m so in love with the feel and look of it. It has these adorable assembled sequins in an abstract shaped heart, which I find to be very fun for a Summer look. I’m generally not the type to be a fan of sequins but the fact that it’s not completely covering the entire top gives it a pass. The wide shape of the top makes it very drapey and gives an awesome loose fit.
What would the scorching hot Summer be without spaghetti strap tops and dresses because this one surely saved my life from melting in the sun. I paired it with a loose fitting trousers that I practically live in. I probably wear these trousers at least once a week, pairing it with different ideas and just having fun with it. It’s literally one of those pieces that you can wear endlessly and always find unique ways to style it while still remaining comfortable. To finish off the look, I accessorized with my awesome vintage fork neckline (yes it is made of a real fork) and my iridescent oil slick Jeffrey Campbells that I took out for play…I almost forgot I had it until I found it one day while organizing the shoes in my closet.

Finally so happy to share this look here on the blog because I am literally obsessed with this fringe top that I brought about a month ago while store gazing in Necessary Clothing in Soho, NY. The texture of this top is unbelievably soft and so comfortable that I wish I could literally wear it everyday. But since I can’t necessarily do that, I’ve already styled it in so many ways, and will probably be one of my go-to tops for this summer. I really love that the fringe placement on the top is in a different place than the usual hem line placement and the fact that its a very loose fitting top, makes for extra ease and comfort.
For this look in particular, I decided to go with pairing this fringe top with lighter grey pant that has have really cool seam detailing going on and of course my Miista floral boots came in handy when it came to finding a pair of shoes to go with this look. Let me know in the comments below how you would style this look and I can’t wait to share more fun stuff with you soon.
