It wouldn’t be a Brooklyn summer without a few trips to the weird and wonderful Coney Island.

I bought this red linen dress from Reformation and asked you all on my insta stories if you had any secrets to keeping it from looking like a wrinkled hot mess. This was right after wearing a pair of linen pants and having them wrinkle beyond belief within minutes, so I was anticipating the same with this dress. Most of you said to embrace the nature of linen and let it wrinkle, so I steamed it the best I could and then let nature run its course. It wrinkled, of course — Β but the day’s humidity almost acted like a steamer itself, loosening up the wrinkles just a bit, before they fully set. Truth be told, I was too hot to care about the state of my clothing. All I could really think about was getting a frozen lemonade (so I did). Happy Summer!

  1. Love the dress!! I was wondering how you protect your skin in the NYC summer heat, especially your tattoos? I just spent the day in the city and I think I sweat off all my sunscreen in minutes! Off-shoulder/cold-shoulder is so in right now (I noticed it in your last few posts) but I’m always afraid to wear it and get burnt to a crisp. Thanks!

    • The thing about SPF is you have to keep reapplying throughout the day, or you’re not really protecting your skin! If I’m going to be out and about, I carry a travel size Supergoop spray or cream with me so I can reapply.
