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!

I am in New York for fashion week! That’s right! Despite the fact that we are still enjoying summer 2016, designers are sending their spring/summer 2017 designs down the runways in New York starting today.

This week I am attending New York Fashion Week spring 2017 in order to share with you what emerging designers, boutique designers, avante-garde designers, mainstream brands, and iconic designers are showing for the next warm weather season. I will be attending approximately twenty-five shows this week in order to spot the trends you need to know about for spring 2017, right now before fall even starts! Don’t ‘cha love that!

Fall 2016 was all about 1970s inspiration, and splashes of vintage inspiration from the 1960s and 1990s. What will spring 2017 bring? It seems as though the boho-chic, 1970s styles have been on the runways now for several seasons. Will spring continue this trend, or has it run it’s course, moving designers into a more structured world?

The past few seasons have been all about embellishments, patterns, and bold mixes. Will designers continue this train of thought, or will they move more into a minimalist realm?

These questions and more will be answered this week as designers show us what we will be coveting for the spring 2017 season! Be sure to follow me on Instagram, Twitter, and/or Facebook in order to see what is on the spring 2017 runways in New York at fashion week!

I wore this outfit on day five of New York Fashion Week when Laura and I stopped into Laduree SOHO for brunch, and of course to buy macarons!

I titled this look New York Fashion Week winter street style because it was lightly snowing that day, and Laura and I took each other’s pictures just before the snow turned into slushy rain. While we were photographing our outfits, photographers were coming out from another show and snapped pictures of us snapping pictures. It was pretty hilarious.

Day five of New York Fashion Week was significantly warmer than the first four days. The first four days of fashion week, the temperatures plunged below twenty degrees, and over the weekend, down into single digits. On Monday, it was a toasty thirty in the morning, and by the evening, it was in the fifties and humid. This outfit was perfect. I did not need a coat! It is funny how warm thirty or forty degrees can feel after you have been running around in single digit temps!

Day five was my easiest day of fashion week. I did not have to rush into an Uber to make any shows, or worry about being late. I saw Reem Acra and Vivienne Tam; both of which were located at the Skylight Moynihan, and were back to back.

After Vivienne Tam’s show, we attended Vivienne Hu’s after-party. There was a basketball net at the party. If you follow me on Snapchat, you may have seen Laura and I attempting free throws in our high heels. It was so fun, and pretty hilarious to watch! We also had a chance to speak with Vivienne Hu about her collection, and the current changes to fashion week. It was amazing!

I am a little sad looking at these photos. It was the last day of fashion week for me before flying home. New York Fashion Week is so much fun; despite that fact that it is work too! Now that I am back home, spring is here, and I am looking towards warmer weather, and fashion to match!

Stay tuned for my recap later this week where I will let you know about all the new trends for fall 2016 from the runways in New York! Thank you for following along, your support means everything to me!
