On day three of New York Fashion Week, I went for a NY street style look. So many NYFW attendees wear denim; it is fun to see how they make it fabulous! I decided it was my turn to wear denim, and amp up my casual style into something street style worthy. I could not have done it without these fabulous denim pieces from New York denim brand Bridge & Boro.

Bridge & Boro makes the most fabulous denim pieces! They have limited edition pieces made from scarce denim fabric, as well as standard pieces in their collection with a timeless quality. The company is family owned and run; and the collection is made in New York!

It is extremely difficult to fit my body into jeans. I have always had a waist size much smaller than my hips and thighs. This is a problem many women have; let’s face it, we are hourglass for a reason! The majority of denim companies out there make their jeans for men, and then size them down for women without re-working them to actually fit a woman’s body. Bridge & Boro just fits. The jeans are made for women. The result is a flattering fit which will look amazing on most women. Love that!

In addition to a women’s denim collection, Bridge & Boro offers denim for men; which is just as fabulous as the women’s collection. Love! I definitely need to get a pair for my hubby!

Denim on denim is a huge trend this year. Although it has been going strong for the past couple of years, denim is bigger than life for spring 2017. Designers are showing it on everything from clothing to accessories. This is the perfect season to rock the denim on denim trend; and invest in some fabulous denim pieces!  For your perfect denim this spring, check out Bridge & Boro at bridgenboro.com.

It was fun wearing this outfit on day three of fashion week. I was snapped by several street style photographers outside the show. Here is a fun photo by fabulous street style photographer Denton Taylor:

Denton Taylor snapped this picture outside The Skylight Clarkson when I was on my way to my first show of the day; Asia Fashion Collection by Vantan. In addition to Asia Fashion Collection, on day three I went to Taoray Wang, Romeo Hunte, Yuna Yang, CG by Chris Gelinas, A Detacher, Georgine, and Francesca Liberatore. In addition to shows, I attended a fun blogger brunch hosted by Twiirly and Amour Vert. You can read about it here.

I am looking forward to wearing this denim on denim look by Bridge & Boro often this upcoming spring season; minus the jacket and scarf. It will look cute with slides, or high heel sandals. The pieces will also look fabulous worn with other items from my closet. They are so versatile and fabulous! Love!

How to style a spring skirt in the winter

how to rewear spring clothing in the winterhow to style a spring skirt in the wintergivenchy antigona small black sugarwinter into spring outfit idea winter pastels

Wearing: Kendra Scott earrings / Laura Mercier lipstick / Banana Republic sweater (on sale!!) / long sleeve tee-on sale! (layered under sweater)  / Givenchy handbag / Topshop pleated skirt (I’m wearing petite) / Christian Louboutin nail polish / Bottega Veneta booties / socks hidden in booties

Wondering how to style a spring skirt in the winter months? This is something I find myself doing often. I love spring and summer clothing, so I tend to purchase more clothing during the warm weather seasons then I do during the winter. My two weaknesses during the winter are coats, and jackets! So I find myself reaching for spring or summer items in my closet, and restyling them for the cold winter weather.

I will say this, the San Francisco Bay Area is more mild in the winter months compared to other parts of the country. That being said, our temperatures do go down into the 30’s and 40’s sometimes, so I need to strategically style spring and summer clothing for the winter.

This outfit I have featured in this post I wore to church a couple of weeks ago, and then out to lunch with my family. It is a spring skirt, winter sweater, fall booties, and accessories which transcend seasons. In order to stay warm in the high 40 degree weather, I layered a long sleeve tee underneath the sweater, and I am wearing ankle socks, you cannot see, inside my booties. It worked like a charm!

If temperatures were cooler than they were that day, this outfit could easily be worn with knee or thigh-high boots, thicker socks, and a coat. I think a navy coat such as this one on sale, would be fabulous! Also, if you top it off with this beanie, it would look NYFW, street-style ready. Love!
