A trip to New York wouldn't be complete without stopping by SoHo to check out my favorite brands and shops. After barely sleeping a wink on the flight here, we managed to squeeze quite a few stops into our schedule during our first day. Considered a mild summer for the New Yorkers, it is incredibly humid for my spoiled California self. I kept cool in this light eyelet dress from my friends over at Lulu's. What I love about this dress is the seemingly two piece teaser from the back - it's proved to be a good conversation starter.
