With Labor Day on the horizon (mark your calendars for September 3rd!), now is the time to squeeze in those last few summer getaways, and it never hurts to pack a travel-ready wardrobe to go with it. Case in point: Jennifer Lopez. The actress, who is fresh from celebrating her 49th birthday in the Bahamas, is currently back in New York, where she was seen taking a leisurely stroll with boyfriend Alex Rodriguez this weekend. And judging by the ensemble, Lopez may have another vacation on the mind. She wore a Monse dress from the brand’s Resort 2019 collection, where the lookbook was shot in the company’s shipping facilities. Lopez grounded the look with Gucci’s crystal-trimmed sandals and smart metallic box bag that placed the look squarely in the city.

The frock was finished with Monse’s signature asymmetric hem, while the jersey lent the ensemble a sporty vibe. It also came dotted in a charming motif made up of faux postage stamps, along with the brand’s new tongue-in-cheek logo, which reads” “Monse LLC, Your Wardrobe Builders.” It was a refreshing, if not unexpected, change of pace for a resort collection, which instead always tend to focus on the destination itself. After all, half the fun is getting there.
