Red Mini Skirt + Best Milkshake in NYC: Summer Heat

The summer heat in NYC has already reached unbearable proportions, so I’m keeping cool with a bikini top, red mini skirt and the best milkshake in NYC. There is something So liberating about wearing a bikini top out and about as part of a real outfit. I chose a ruffled one from Unique Vintage with a lipstick print – the key to being able to pull off a bikini as a top is to choose one with more coverage and with a fun print, making it look more like a crop top. Since it does tend to get cold indoors during the Summer with AC, I layered with a ruffled sleeve red jacket. To match the red theme, I chose my new favorite red mini skirt from ALEXIS. I am absolutely obsessed with this skirt – the print is so summery and I love the wrap style and side ruffle detail. I also like that even though it’s a mini skirt, it’s not too short and unwearable. This piece is definitely on the pricey side, but I’m trying to build a wardrobe of investment pieces I really love.

I completed the look with my gingham bow mules from Chinese Laundry to play off of the bow on my skirt. For a boho touch, I went with a small vintage handbag, as well as layered necklaces. Since my chest area is pretty bare with the bikini top, I chose a long beaded necklace that goes past my navel, and layered that with a shorter necklace. I really like the summery effect it creates of the beaded necklace against bare skin.LayersofChic Red Mini Skirt Ruffle Bikini Top OutfitLayersofChic Red Mini Skirt Shop AlexisLayersofChic Red Mini Skirt Bikini Top OutfitLayersofchic Best Milkshake in NYC Strawberry Cheesecake Junior's

Now let’s talk about this EPIC milkshake. You may have guessed it already based on the photos – the milkshake is from the original Junior’s Cheesecake in Brooklyn, and it is seriously the best milkshake in NYC. I especially liked this one because strawberry is my favorite flavor and I love cheesecake, and this milkshake was strawberry flavored with a cheesecake on top. I also really like that it is rimmed with graham crackers, which is generally my favorite part about cheesecake crust. Needless to say, this milkshake makes for an amazing photo and is the ultimate way to treat yourself. If you’re interested in trying it, it’s called “The New Yorker” and is available at the Junior’s Flatbush location. Be warned that it does not come cheap a $19 per milkshake, but can you really put a price on happiness?
