Summers in nyc are hot hot hot, and some mornings you just dread getting dressed… but there is one outfit solution: a cute romper!
I never really shop at forever 21 anymore, not because I don’t like it, but just because going in there gives me anxiety! However, I wanted a cheap romper to help me through the summer, and found one this one at XXI! I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and construction for the price I paid!

casual courtney must have been listening to the song “grey or blue” by jaymay while getting ready this morning && it served as the subconscious inspiration for today’s outfit.
“your eyes are either grey or blue, i’m never close enough to say”
dress down an otherwise dressy pencil skirt by pairing it with riding boots && a boyfriend sweater. finish with tights, to keep from looking skimpy && a statement necklace to draw the attention up to your face while evening out your proportions!

I’m not sure if I am still feeling patriotic from the forth or if this beautiful weather just brought out my inner lady liberty, but todays pattern mixing outfit lets freedom ring with an american-esuqe park-worthy look.
Who’s hungry? Come and get it! This outfit would be perfect for an all-american BBQ or an outdoor picnic.
With all the outdoor events and weddings that may fill up your summer event calendar, be sure to choose sensible footwear to avoid sinking! These wedge booties served as the perfect shoe for a day in Washington Square Park!
Although this look is outdoor and causal, I had to glam it up with bits of pearls, a flower pin and a big red lip! I also added a feminine touch to my top knot by braiding it at the crown!
