Summer Style Guide to New York City

Beach hair, flirty skirts, sun-kissed skin—is it any wonder summer is absolutely, hands down our favorite season of the year? But summer style is different in every city, which is why we've teamed up with Grand Marnier—is there anything better than a frosty, poolside margarita during a late July heatwave?—and four of our favorite bloggers to present the ultimate fair weather guide to each of their hometowns. Now meet Laura Ellner of On The Racks in New York City.

Laura Ellner of On the Racks loves exploring her hometown of New York City, which serves up daily doses of style inspiration. Now that summer is in full swing, she’s been donning brighter colors and spending her days enjoying all the amazing things that the city has to offer, but always finding time to stop along the way for an afternoon cocktail. Here are a few of her favorite local spots and day-to-day style inspirations.

“Watching the sunset from my favorite little spot in Brooklyn Heights. Love heading over to shop at Barney's CO-OP. It's definitely not the biggest one around the city, but it makes for a mellow, pleasant shopping experience! This view near the water is amazing—you can see the whole city!”
