Instead of over thinking, I decided last minute on a few Rachel Pally maxi dresses. This is one of my all time fav brands and pieces in my closet.

You really can't go wrong with a good maxi dress. It can take you from day to night with very little thought.
Because of these super comfy dresses I survived the wild heat that New York served up (non-airconditioned taxis and all).
