The arrival of summer always seems to lift a heavy burden off of New Yorkers and overnight, everyone seems to be in a breezy, light-hearted mood. To refresh my closet from the dark, moody winter grays, I always turn to blue and white cotton pieces that seem to inspire a light and airy summer state of mind. Always one to gravitate towards summer outfits with nautical flair, I love this pinstriped midi skirt paired with a classic, vintage-esque lace top that's cropped for a
modern twist (and surprisingly found while searching the racks of Forever 21 on a whim).
