Happy Wednesday!

Yesterday night I had dinner plans down by Washington Square Park. It was hot as Hades (NYC temps reportedly reached a high of 93 degrees!) so I slipped on a flirty little blue halter dress by Lu Pone & Vanderbilt from a store called Yamak down on Bleecker.

As far as accessories, I kept it relatively simple: a belt from Topshop, a black crystal silver mesh bracelet by Jenny Dayco, a Betsey Johnson clutch, and a Steven Shein Faux Real necklace I purchased at Patricia Field.

Not to be overlooked: my Miu Miu Glitter sandals.

I love them!

I had a little time to kill before dinner, so I caught some Real Style (coming soon), then sat in the shade and rocked out with another fave summer accessory: a hand fan.

If you live somewhere sweltering, I’d highly recommend this low cost accent. It keeps you cool and can look super cute. I purchased mine down by Canal street for $4.

What do you think of this week’s Style Diary?

  1. Claire you short wear above the knee dresses all the time. You have great legs and should show them! No homo lol

  2. yeah, agree, body is looking good! i have no definition in my arms/ shoulders so i envy anyone who does :-)

  3. I loved Jem and the Holograms! Loved the whole outfit, and somebody’s commitment to working out is showing, I see u! #salute

  4. okay so claire you look fab…as usual…I remember you saying that you are heavier up top, but you always look great in your sleeveless tops and things…please give a recommendation for a good strapless bra for larger cups….

    Love the shoes also.

  5. Wow Claire, what a fun, flirty look, you look fab! PS, the stairmaster is doing you good girl, lean legs for days!

  6. @Sun.Kissed Thanks! I kinda knew I was getting ripped off. I offered the guy $4 and he was almost too quick to accept. Haha. I’ll know better for next time. xoxo

  7. Awww! Unfortunately Bergdorf doesn’t go up to a “Z” cup. I just missed the cut off. They only go up to a G cup. I’m a 34 around the waist and +G cup naturally. Yeah, I know. So I didn’t put myself in this sucky situation. Blame it on genetics I guess. Lol It’s really hard finding strapless bras for top heavy gals. I guess it’s impossible to keep my buddies up without the proper support. :P Thanks for the link though Claire!! I had my fingers crossed while clicking the link. Haha Anywho, you look amazing as always!! I always love your style! :)
