Keeping Cool



The heat wave in NY reached an all-time high this week, which had me sticking to my lightest & breeziest pieces possible.  A silk sleeveless top & airy pleated maxi kept me just as cool as a tank & shorts, but was the dressed-up option I needed for a day of lunch & window-shopping with my girlfriend.  I'm glad I took the opportunity to get a little break in before our big move this weekend - we get the keys to our new house tomorrow!  It's going to be a lot of work transitioning and though I'm sad to leave behind my closet room, I'm thrilled to be gaining my own home office (pictures to come soon).






What I'm wearing:
Victoria's Secret Silk Shirt (similar), Mango skirt (similar here or here), Report Mazur Sandals (under $35!), Zara Braided Shopper (on sale!), Pieces collar necklace (similar here or here), Bracelets: c/o Lulu's (similar) & Forever 21 (similar), Lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Kiss Me Coral

I love that skirt! I hope you can answer this for me... I have the Zara bag and can't get the inside pocket to stay attached, any ideas?:/

Hi Daylenis,

I actually don't have that problem with mine, so I'm not sure if you received a defective one? Does yours have the snap on the inside to hold it in place? That is what keeps mine intact.

xo,
Kimberly

Daylenis Suarez said...

Yes, it has the snaps but the little tabs don't stay attached :(
I will try to figure something out, thank you so much!!

Rachel Lynne said...

I love that your maxi has a full slip - this makes so much more sense than the silly little mini slips!

this is completely un-related to your outfit (which I love by the way), but I noticed that you have AMAZING skin! I was wondering if you were born blessed or if you have a beauty routine that you could share. Thanks!

Kimberly said...

Hi Kristen,

Thank you for your sweet comment! I have been blessed with fairly clear skin, although I had a rough time with it after my son was born & had to completely change the products I used. I highly recommend seeing a dermatologist - that is what saved me! I use Dove Sensitive Skin bar soap to wash my face, followed by Cerave am (for morning) and pm (for evening). I've been experimenting with different anti-aging serums and eye creams and have yet to find one I really love. I hope that helps a little! :)

Kimberly
