Summer is officially over, though we still have some warm sunny days ahead. Don’t think I will be getting back to the beach, with Fashion Week and my trip to Paris there won’t be time. And it may be a while before I take any day trips out east. But last weekend I was able to get out to the east end and I headed to the town of NorthPort with my friend Laurie.

We found this great hillside spot to shoot. The north shore is way hillier then the south shore which is more or less flat and at sea level. The north shore actually reminds bit of the west coast. But when I saw this spot I knew we had to stop.

It is very light and breathable and with the bare shoulders and slight up the leg it was the perfect choice for hazy, hot and humid day

It was quite a hot day so I wore this super feminine ruffle dress from Lush. It is very light and breathable and with the bare shoulders and slit up the leg it was the perfect choice for a hazy, hot and humid day. I grabbed my distressed denim jacket for the cooler evening air and paired the look with these fringe sandals from Very Volatile which my regular readers have seen before when I wore them with boyfriend jeans and a white tee for lunch in Brooklyn with my friend Angela.

The bag which is super on trend and looks more expensive then it is, I picked up at H&M and it was a whopping $34.95. The sunnies are from Mandee’s and I like the vaguely seventies feel to them. I got a number of compliments on this dress as I strolled through town. So yes hands up, I am a big fan of the ruffle dress trend. Now the only thing left to do is, add more to my closet!

    The ruffle details makes this dress so flirty and fun. I love your necklaces. Looks like a fun day out in Northport. I didn’t really leave the city at all this summer unless Brooklyn and Queens count.

    I love the floral print, the ruffles, and the self-tied bow at the waist of your Lush ruffle dress.
    It does look very feminine and pretty. I like the look of that bag from H+M too.
    Northport looks like a lovely place to visit. I do like the more hilly terrain on the North shore. Of course I looked Northport up on Google maps, and saw that it was West of Port Jefferson.
    The East end was very busy this Labor Day weekend – for instance the Hamptons Classic Horse Show in Bridgehampton just finished up yesterday – there were a number of stars there.

    Hey Allie, hope you’re having a great summer 😀

    Love to see you rocking the trends of the summer, and adding the denim jacket is ideal for those summer afternoons where it refreshes 🙂

    Wish you the best in this edition of PFW, looking forward to see your coverage and your street style shots! Unfortunately I won’t go but promise I’ll make an effort to go soon 😀

    Best regards!

    What a beautiful look on you Allie! I love the contrasting elements of the soft ruffles and floral, with the more rugged denim jacket. These are beautiful shots and the picture of you with your hair blowing in the wind is very beautiful.
