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.

Nails are having a major moment and I am living in it. Not a day in my desk chair or a night on my couch goes by without me wondering if I should paint my nails – a major improvement from the bi-weekly mani/pedis I was getting for awhile. But I’ve recently come across a fashion wonder that has me contemplating my nail polish choice even more: the art of matching ones outfits to ones nails or vice versa.
I have never been the matchy matchy type. If my shoes are the same color as my blouse I’m probably barfing (unless we’re talking monochrome in which case, lets match.com the whole outfit and make some eharmony out of it!); but my regurgitation tactics are beginning to change by way of nail lacquer. I painted my nails forest green last week and found myself putting together an outfit that featured a skirt of the exact same color. Normally I’d switch out the skirt, but I didn’t. Instead I went with it, and you know what? I liked it. I liked it a lot. If nails are such an integral part of my life (did I really just admit that?), then shouldn’t they play an integral role in my daily sartorial choices? I think so. But the real question here is, do you?
And my own faux pro/faux pas:

:::: A (Non) Week in Review ::::
It’s mind boggling how fast things can change. I just took on a new gig for the next four weeks (including Fashion Week!) and while I couldn’t be more excited, I admit that the change to my schedule is quite an adjustment. It’s been awhile since I last worked in an office and I’m slowly but surely getting used to this whole I can’t roll out of bed and work all day in my pjs thing. That being said, this new experience (I’ll share with you later I swear!) has been so much fun and I’m thoroughly looking forward to the following weeks…even if I walk out of Fashion Week with permanent dark circles around my eyes. It’s all worth it!
Since I’ve been in an office for the majority of the week, I didn’t really have a chance to take a ton of interesting photos. So instead I thought I’d share some of my instagram pictures that I’ve taken over the past few months. I kind of have an obsession with this iPhone app and would love it if you shared your instagrams with me too! If you have instagram be sure to follow me (@RunwayHippie) and if not, then you can peep my photos on Web.stagram!
