Upper East Side | NYC

Gossiping in the Upper East Side!

There's no secret, when I think of the upper east side, the first time that comes in mind is the famous TV Series, Gossip Girl. After spending hours re-watching the show and getting style inspiration from each of the episodes, it was time to head back to the Upper East Side, NY.

The Upper East Side is a great location to embrace your classic, but yet fashionable style. For this look, I decided to go with a more formal look, but still fresh enough to beat the hot and humid summer weather of New York City. While picking this outfit out of my closet, I kept three things in mind. One, keep it classic, and sharp. A suit is usually desired, but when it feels like 100 degrees outside, I don't know about you, but I ain't wearing that. I picked one of my favorite navy blue vests and paired it up with a similar color dressy shorts since I was going heading out for the day. Depending of your occasion, if is an important event or etc, I totally recommend to wear a full suit, but most importantly, wear light pants.

Second, add a personal touch. I have recently purchased a new white shirt with a fun print of little reading glasses and I thought it was a great idea to wear it to add some fun and personal touch to this look. Since not going to lie, it sometimes could look a bit boring and plain. When it came to shoes, a pair of nice loafers came to mind. Specially for this look, I decided to wear my favorite pair of loafers, and since I know I can walk in them for a long period of time and still feel comfortable, they make the perfect pair of shoes for a busy day. Third, is all about the accessories. To finish up this look, I added a nice skinny black tie for that formal sharpness, and a pair of sunglasses, to add drama and mystery to this look. Can't forget to keep up with my time when It comes to a busy day, so I wore my all time favorite Apple Watch with the navy blue sport band to match to keep my on track. That's all for today, and I'll see you all in my next post!
