The Look I'll Be Living in this Summer | OOTD

It's getting hotter here in New York City, so I've been on the hunt for some flowy and light pieces to add to my wardrobe. My budget is not on my side, however, so I've mostly been raiding cheap-and-cheerful shops with little more than $20, hoping for a retail miracle. My prayers were answered, when I stumbled upon this little gem of a jumpsuit in Forever 21.

Jumpsuit: Forever 21 | Watch: JORD | Bag: Hebe Rose | Necklace: Topshop | Shoes: H&M

It's super simple, but that's why it's so perfect for me. With a limited wardrobe - half my clothes are back home in Ireland - I have to get resourceful with my outfits over here. A one-time wear kind of ensemble will not do. I need something that can be worn day and night, and that's definitely this jumpsuit. For nights out, I'll pair it with heels and delicate accessories. I'll dress it down for day-to-day office wear, like how I've worn it here. Throw on my Taylor Crossbody, and I'm ready to land at Hebe Rose HQ for and get my hustle on.

Then there's the accessories. Or should I say: that watch. I received this gorgeous piece by JORD in the post last week and since then it hasn't left my wrist. I forgot how great old school watches are!

This is going to sound ridiculous, but I feel so relieved to have a watch back in my life! It's such a great way to stop wasting time on your phone. Before, I would always be looking at my phone for the time. But of course, then I'd see the notifications and start checking Instagram, Twitter, email... And it's not until I slide my phone back in my pocket that I realise I still have no idea what time it is. Plus I probably wasted 5 minutes from all the needless social media scrolling. So for me wearing a watch is a pretty little life hack.

Psst, click to get $25 off a JORD watch, with the chance of winning a $100 JORD gift card.

You can expect to see me wearing this ensemble a lot this summer. How about you - what is your go-to look for the warmer months? I'd love to hear in the comments!
