LOTD: Union at Night


It was an awesome weekend when one of my girlfriends from school came down for a visit over this past weekend, and I got to show her around the city that never sleeps. After a long day of strolling around all of Manhattan, we finally got a girls night out. A fairly popular area to go out in Manhattan is Union Square. So we glammed up, had a selfie photoshoot, then hit the street for a night out on the town. A super hot trend right now is the slip dress look. It’s sultry and feminine, yet oh so comfortable. Perfect for those hot summer nights like this past weekend. With slips ranging from tanks to skirts to dresses, this trend is an easy to style offerings

For this Look of the Day, I chose the slip dress trend but in a cropped flowing tank from Forever 21. The lace trim and floral print made this top feel soft and dainty. So to spice it up for the night, I paired it with a black leather mini skirt and black over the knee boots. The leather adds an edge to any outfit making it fun to pair with different pieces in my wardrobe. Now my favorite part of the outfit, the boots. These suede over the knee boots were a STEAL at DSW. Every time I wear them, “these boots were made for walking” starts playing in my head. This was the perfect ensemble for a night out in Union Square, especially when the hot summer months start to swelter in the city streets.
