Day three of New York Fashion Week was the hottest, and most humid fashion week day I have ever experienced. Words cannot even describe the heat, and the icky humidity! Thankfully this dress was cool and breezy; perfect for a yucky humid day!

I started the day off in my suede booties, but the sky became a bit foreboding with the threat of thunder showers, so in order to save my suede booties, I switched to this pair of pewter leather booties which can sustain some rain. I heard it rained, but I must have been indoors when it did, because I never got caught in it! Whew!

Day three was really fun. I kicked off the day at Dan Liu, which was a romantic collection reminiscent of Paris in the 1960’s. I loved all the vintage inspired, feminine dresses. Next, I was off to Vicky Zhang which was filled with Mother-Daughter apparel. So cute! Then it was time for Rebecca Minkoff. You can read all about it in my blog post here.

After Rebecca Minkoff, it was time for Son Jung Wan’s disco inspired runway show. So much fun! The music was disco, and the people sitting behind me got out of their seats to dance to the music. It was amazing! Then I had a little break to eat some lunch, and edit a few photos before seeing A Detacher’s spring 2017 show, followed by Sally Skoufus’ fine jewelry presentation. It was a full day, and I loved everything I saw. So many great styles coming up for spring 2017!

By day three, the spring 2017 trends were starting to come into focus. There was more blush, denim, jumpers, green, pink, metallics, moto jackets, 1960s influence, 1990s influence, and decadent embellishments. Stay tuned! I will be recapping all the trends from the spring 2017 runways in a separate post. Spring 2017 is going to be fabulous!

How to wear fall clothing when it’s hot outside

Day one of New York Fashion Week was an extremely busy day for me. I had back to back shows throughout the day starting at 9am, and ending at 9pm. I saw Nicholas K, Concept Korea, Supima, Fashion Palette, Michael Costello, Desigual, Marissa Webb, Cynthia Rowley, and The Art Institutes. Whew!

Since I knew ahead of time how busy my schedule would be, I planned on wearing this comfortable jumpsuit. It is a fall item, yet it is cool enough to wear in ninety degree weather with humidity. An oh, the humidity! It was brutal, very, very, brutal.

Normally for New York Fashion Week in September, I wear cute high heels. With all the standing in line at fashion week, walking to and from shows, and rushing from show to show, my feet get beat up. I decided to go a different route this season and wear comfortable booties with socks for extra padding. This was a great plan! These booties are super comfortable, and they allowed me to get though the day without killing my feet. Happy feet = happy me. Love that!

If you are looking for a go-to outfit this fall which is comfortable and perfect for busy days, this jumpsuit and booties is it! You can find the jumpsuit online here, and these super comfortable booties are online here. It is easy to add color to this outfit, or play up the black with white stitching like I did by pairing similar accessories.

Stay tuned! I have tons of coverage from New York Fashion Week coming up on my social  media channels, and here on the blog. Spring 2017 is looking fabulous, and I hope you will love it!

Thanks for stopping by!

New York Street Style outfit idea:

One of the big trends for the fall 2016 season is berry hues. Although this color trend pops up almost every autumn, it is a beautiful color palette to incorporate into one’s fall wardrobe; making it a great trend to follow this season no mater how predictable!

Since the weather here in the San Francisco Bay Area does not cool off until the end of October, it can be difficult to incorporate fall pieces into our wardrobes. That is why I love finding lightweight tee’s I can pair with jeans, or midi skirts, which reflect the fall trends, yet are weather-appropriate.

I love this cold shoulder tee from SheIn. Not only is it nicely priced way under $50, it is lightweight, washable, and totally on trend for fall. The cold shoulder trend is continuing into the new season, and the burgundy hue fits perfectly into the berry color trend. I also love the long length of the tee since it adds a little bit more style to jeans than a regular tee-shirt.

The deep v-neck on this top also adds a little bit of sass to the tee which enables it to be dressed up for evenings and parties. I wear a tank top underneath for the daytime, but if you leave out the tank, and pair this top with jeans and heels, or a black pencil skirt and heels, then you have a season, and weather appropriate party outfit. Love it!

I also need to give a shout-out to these booties. They are super comfortable and fit into fall’s metallic trend. I know I will be wearing them often this autumn season!
