Labor Day is nearly upon us and we’ll be bidding farewell to the summer season soon! To celebrate the last glimpse of good weather before the fall and winter shenanigans, I wanted to share with you a beautiful yellow dress that I scoured for less than $20 and the most comfortable golden flat sandals ever, courtesy of Musse & Cloud.
How are you going to spend your Labor Day weekend? I will probably make the most of it by exploring new streets in New York City and toasting the weather in DUMBO!
Labor Day Weekend Outfit
If you’re like me, you will probably want something that compliments your now sun-kissed skin and that is comfortable yet put-together for a variety of occassions. I was lucky to find this dress at H&M for just $15, and I decided to style it with my trusty Musse & Cloud Aimy gold sandals ($100.)
Very similar to the Musse & Cloud Aineed sandals that I recently reviewed here, Aimy are all you can expect from a comfortable hybrid between a shoe and a sandal. They are soft, fashionable, and sturdy enough to avoid silly slips and falls. As the back has an adjustable elastic cord, they adapt very well to all types of legs and ankles, and lo and behold they don’t blister my feet. That is major for me. I get blisters for nothing!
See the beautiful laser-cut detailing here? It’s difficult not to fall head over heels in love with them! (no pun intended ;))
What I like most about the Aimy sandals is their unique color. A beautiful golden hue that is not too flashy for the day, you can style them with a pair of jeans for brunch and pair them up with a cute dress for date night. Although I wore my H&M greek-inspired yellow pleated dress all day, you can save it for a more formal occasion.
Accessories: Chamilia’s NEW “Warrior” Bracelet
For this labor weekend outfit, I have decided to go with my trusty Swarovski earrings, which were a beautiful gift for my 30th birthday, and a “Warrior” soft ID bracelet by Chamilia ($39, available after October 16.) A part of the “spoken by Chamilia” upcoming collection, the bracelet is made of pure .925 sterling silver and is adaptable to wrists of all sizes. A body-positive bracelet, if you wish, as its chain-and-hook system caters to every size of wrist.
Chamilia was kind enough to send me a sample bracelet to drive-test and preview, and I very much like that it is a collection that features optimistic and spirited sentiment messaging. Hand-crafted in sterling silver, the “Warrior” soft bracelet has a horizontal shield-shaped bar and a series of tiny arrows to reinforce your inner strength. Although in my pic above it is shown in silver, the bracelet will also available in 14 karat yellow gold or 14 karat rose gold electroplating. Quite curiously, the messaging on the plaque was originally hand-drawn and is rendered on the plaque in black enamel.
Finally, do you spot with your little eyes my handbag in the pics above? Yep, it is a stingray purse! I love animals, and when I found this Betsey Johnson number on sale for about $40 at Century 21 I literally couldn’t resist buying it. It is roomy enough to carry all my essentials, and it is so cute that it literally stole the show at the NY Indie Beauty Expo 2017 (more to come), Beauty Squared and NY Now. People were literally petting my bag and taking pictures of it, so I thought I would share where it came from.

Handbag: Stingray by Betsey Johnson (scoured at Century 21)
For those of you unfamiliar with the city, we took these shots on the famous Brooklyn Bridge, from where we toasted the New Year just a few months ago, City Hall (just above) and the DUMBO neighborhood, which is also home to The River Cafe, one of the most romantic spots in the city.
If you are coming to celebrate your Labor Day Weekend in New York City, you can’t miss those views! Walking the Brooklyn Bridge is an amazing experience but I’d recommend you to go early in the morning or a bit late at night to avoid the crowds. It took us a while to get some of the shots right as the bridge was bursting with people, and if you like to take pictures you might want to beat the tourists.
