The Perfect Skirt for a Casual Day in NYC

Back to NYFW… I had to take a pause to tell you about that cozy tunic the other day because I was just too excited about it!

By this day in NY I was so relieved to have a free day hanging out with my friend ( and photographer) Sam!  It was equally relieving to throw on a pair of converse sneakers and this knitted skirt!  I actually almost sent this skirt back because I wasn’t sure how I felt about it and I’m so glad I kept it!  It’s super cozy and $39!  It can easily be dressed up with some cute heels and a turtleneck or a vest!  It was sold out when I originally put it on my Instagram, but now it’s back in stock!!

I also have to tell you about a nice save versus splurge deal I found.  This Express bag is a complete Chloe dupe!  For $39 I had to have it!  I adore the Chloe Drew bag, but they range upwards of $1800!  I’ll take the save version, please!
