summer staples

I'm sure you all know this already, but whenever I do a shoot with the brilliant Sarah Ratner, I can't post the usual ~9 or so pics. At the very minimum, I have to double the amount of photos because they're just so damn good. This time around, I wanted to share three things that I'm sure I'll be wearing for all of the sweltering and steamy months that await us. For those of you who have experienced a New York summer, you know that it's no joking matter, so here are my three essentials to wear in the summer. First up is the loose mesh top. It's a great way to wear black but not have a heavy fabric that can heat up quickly. Next the bodysuit. It reduces the layers you need underneath and therefore reduces the amount of clothing to sweat through. Last but not least is the perfect pair of denim cutoffs. I'm obsessed with all of American Eagle's denim but I think this pair (link below) is perfect because of the stretchy denim and the perfectly placed rips.
