Cut out dresses are kind of like crop tops — one inch too much or one burrito too many and you look like you’ve never owned a mirror and are just a slave to the trends (major nono!).
I was drawn to the cut out of this Topshop dress because though it’s front and center, there’s still something a bit modest about it thanks to the shape of the dress (love a good shifty A-line). It fits like a gah-luv — read: glove — which is probably for the better since it doesn’t allow that second burrito to wiggle it’s way down my esophagus. Plus, that oversize pizza slice cut out allows for that extra bit of coolness — as in temperature, not a level of popularity — that everyone wants when it’s scorching hot and humid outside.
Had I been wearing this dress in the city, I would have opted for a pair of colorful wedges, but rocks/beach/bike rides call for comfy sandals, which gave my tootsies a rest from their toe squishing, pavement stomping weekly routine. And speaking of weekly routine, I’d better get to work!

There’s something so low key about living in Brooklyn that all I want to do is wear comfortable and relaxing clothing. Lately, that means a maxi skirt, comfortable tank top, and bold accessories.
I’ve been wearing this outfit for the past few days now because I love how easily it can transition from day-to-night. That’s the thing about summers in NYC, it’s just as hot at night as it is during the day, so sundresses, tank tops, and sandals are totally acceptable no matter what time it is.
