Feelin' Foxy

Man, NYC heat can be a b*tch! It's finally cooled off the last few days (I'm sitting on my back porch while it rains as I write this, drinking French press and wishing the weekend weren't coming to an end), but for several days all I could think about were sheer fabrics and lightweight layers. These pants may look deceivingly fall-like, but they're actually made from a silky fabric that's akin to wearing pajama pants throughout the day. Sheer tops are a must in NYC summers, but they're not exactly work-appropriate, even if you work in the fashion industry. When I wear this top to work it's always with a cami underneath or a solid layer like a blazer or cardigan on top. 

Also making an appearance are my prized Rachel Zoe Brooklyn heels, nabbed during the Shopbop Friends & Family sale earlier this year. To date, they're still one of the most expensive things I've ever purchased (not including some seriously discounted finds over the years ;) ).  I of course had rock a liquid-looking gold cuff to complement the incredible metallic heel.

P.S. Jessica talked me into leaving my hair up in this topknot for photos, even though it's something I normally only rock for workouts/lazy weekends/bedtime. I'm still on the fence about wearing it up out in public-thoughts??
