Beat the Heat

As New Yorkers we simply just can not be content with anything (naturally), it’s either too hot or too cold. Lately, I have been trying to beat the heat in NY. Here are a few simple steps you will thank me for later: 

#1 WEAR A DRESS, it’s much easier to throw on + pack a wrinkle free outfit. Don’t be afraid of a little color or mixed prints. This business casual look by metrostyle is the perfect mix of summer fun with a short sleeve and accentuated waistline. Perfect look for work or summer brunch in Southampton. 

#2 STOP wearing so much makeup. Keep it simple, give your skin a break and let your natural summer glow take the front line. Make sure to use moisturizer with at least 30 SPF. I swear by Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer with built in sunscreen. A sweaty face filled with “contour” or cake foundation is not cute. 

#3 LAYER UP on accessories. Bring out the strappy ankle sandals, statement jewelry and bags with personality. I am obsessed with these black lace up fringe tip block heels from Zara, not only do they look great but I can literally “run in heels”. My jewelry is the current #Summer16 Diamonds Unleashed Collection, available on and all net profits go towards supporting girls education. (now that’s badass) This fun PURSEonality vampire clutch is a Kara Ross NY heritage piece, sold exclusively at the KRNY Flagship located at 655 Madison Ave. 

Everything else will be a breeze… until next time xo
