Day two of New York Fashion Week was super busy! I attended Dan Liu, LANYU, Hakam Akkaya, Concept Korea, RtA, and Chromat. After the shows, I met up with fellow GenX blogger SimplySylvia. In order to survive a busy day like this, I needed to wear something comfortable!

Thacker NYC is a fabulous clothing brand based in New York City. Thier concept is to create a capsule wardrobe which can be mixed and matched, season after season. I love how this coat, tunic/dress, and leggings were perfect paired together for fashion week. When I get back home, and start heading into the spring season, I am looking forward to separating the pieces and mixing them into other outfits. They are so versatile! Love that!

I already wore the coat before fashion week. You can see how I styled it online here. This dress/tunic is great because it can be worn as a tunic over leggings or skinny jeans. It can also be worn as a dress. It will be really cute this summer with high heel sandals for dinner on a patio! Love!

With the athleisure trend in full swing, more on that from me later in the month, these Thacker NYC leggings will be front and center. They are made from extremely high quality fabric, and are so comfortable! Love!

You can find more versatile pieces for your wardrobe by Thacker NYC online at ThackerNYC.com.

Stay tuned! I will be reworking these pieces throughout the spring and summer seasons!

The first day of New York Fashion Week it snowed; and by snow, I mean SNOW! Thankfully I had this beautiful coat by San Francisco Bay Area fashion brand Tart Collections to keep me warm and cozy! Isn’t it fun that a brand from California kept me warm and toasty in New York?! Love!

If you have been following along, you may have noticed I LOVE Tart Collections! Recently, I wore this fabulous studded moto jacket on the blog, which you can see online here, and here. For the holiday season, and on New Years, I wore this beautiful sequin blazer by Tart Collections, which you can see online here. So as you can tell, I am a huge fan of the brand!

Day one of fashion week was a busy one! I went to several shows including Nicholas K, Ane Amour, Tadashi Shoji, Noon by Noor, Berenik, Katie Ghallagher, and Michael Costello. They were all so amazing; and I already spotted a few trends for fall 2017! So stay tuned! I have fashion week coverage coming up.

Kendra Scott spring 2017 collection launch party

Wearing: Kendra Scott earrings / YSL lipstick / Gap long sleeve tee / coat c/o Thacker NYC (stay tuned-wearing this at NYFW!) / Gap jeans / Mansur Gavriel bag / YSL nail polish / Gucci shoes

Last week, I was thrilled to attend Kendra Scott’s spring 2017 collection launch party at her Santana Row shop. In addition to launching her new spring collection, Kendra Scott also donated 20% of her proceeds from the event to local charity YWCA Silicon Valley. Love!

The event was really fun, and I had a chance to hang out with two other local bloggers who are super fun to chat with; Dawn from Fashion Should Be Fun, and Cheryl from Oh To Be A Muse. They both have fabulous style, be sure you are following them too!

Kendra Scott’s spring 2017 collection included pieces which will be easy to wear with the spring 2017 color palette. There is turquoise, blue, rose gold, crackle brown pearl, and ivory pearl set in antique silver. The collection is so amazing! This is my favorite piece from the collection.

This necklace is definitely on my spring wish list! I also have my eyes on this beautiful cuff. Not sure which color I want! They are all so pretty! Here are a few of my favorites from Kendra Scott’s spring collection:

While I was at the party, I did indulge in purchasing two rings from the spring collection. I knew I needed rings to wear right now, so they are perfect for winter into spring transition style. I purchased this ring in crackle brown pearl and crackle blue agate.

Of course, sometimes you picture the perfect piece and it does not exist! Well, I did get a chance to play around at the event on the Color Bar. The Color Bar is fabulous because you can pick the design, the metal color, and the stone color yourself. They will create your design right there in front of your eyes, and you get to take it home with you that day! I designed the Alex earrings in silver and blue. They are so pretty! You can learn more about the Color Bar online here.

Since the weather has been cool yet sunny, I was able to wear this beautiful suede coat by Thacker NYC to the event. The coat is actually part of an outfit I have planned for NYFW, but it is so beautiful, and versatile, I felt compelled to wear it early. This coat is a great capsule wardrobe piece. It can be worn during fall, winter, and spring. The coat can be worn dressy or casual. I am going to have fun showing you different ways to wear this coat; so stay tuned!

You can learn more about Thacker NYC online here. If you are looking for the perfect jewelry pieces to wear now into spring, the Kendra Scott spring 2017 collection will have what you are looking for! Be sure to check out Kendra Scott’s spring 2017 collection online here.
