{Dress: H&M, Sweater & Scarf: Club Monaco, Shoes: Zara, Bracelet: Gilt Groupe, Clutch: Balenciaga}

Let me just start by saying there aren’t enough hours in the day, literally.  When I got this week’s Blogger’s do it Better Challenge, I was so excited to participate because I love this season’s neon and neutral trend.  However, day after day, I worked after sunset and another day passed without a blog post.  But, I couldn’t let this outfit go undocumented or BDIB pass without participating.  So, tonight I settled for a streetlight as my daylight and got a few shots of my outfit.

I am proud to say this dress was one of my very first H&M purchases in college and I am still rockin it!  It is a true testament to buying a timeless piece.  (I probably won’t be saying that about these shoes in 5 years.)  I love this Club Monaco neon summer sweater because it is perfect for the current weather in New York.  The days here have been in the 80’s, but it can still get cool in the evenings which makes this the perfect layering piece.

Styling Tip:  Expand your wardrobe by topping off a dress with a sweater.  This creates the ilusion of a skirt and adds dimension to your wardrobe (at zero cost)!
