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!

This coat is my current favorite as it kept me warm and cozy all day during fashion week in the snow. I also received tons of compliments on it! Love!

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.

On a plane to New York Fashion Week

marissa webb spring 2017 nyfw

Today I am on a plane to New York Fashion Week. As we prepare for fashion week, we are still experiencing the winter 2017 season; although stores are already showing us spring 2017,  starting tomorrow, we will learn all about fall 2017. Isn’t it amazing how the fashion calendar works?

We already know Greenery is the color of 2017, so as we look towards the new, upcoming trends of fall 2017, we can rest assured there should be some Greenery on the fall 2017 runways. But which trends from last fall will survive? Which new trends for the upcoming spring 2017 will prove to be lasting?

The current spring 2017 trends which are already proving popular on the street include statement earrings, denim, athleisure, mini bags, anything Gucci (which, to be frank, we can only find on Gucci’s runway haha), shades of blue, shades of pink, pale or grey nail polish, vampy or beige lipstick, and slides. Will these trends continue on the fall 2017 runway?

Last fall, we saw huge trends in lace-up sweaters, bell sleeves, creepers, saddle bags, 1990s influence, 1970s influence, and block heels. Will any of these consumer favorites continue in the upcoming fall 2017 season?

We will have the answers to these questions and more starting tomorrow! Which trends from last year would you like to see continue? Are there any trends you hope stay off the runways, and the streets? Leave a comment below and start the discussion!

Green fall florals in New York

Wearing: Chanel sunglasses / Banana Republic maxi fall floral dress / Kendra Scott earrings / MAC Lipstick / Chloe handbag / Kendra Scott ring set c/o / Kendra Scott nail polish c/o / Sam Edelman booties (sold out, similar pair online here and here)

Ah! This dress! Have you ever worn something and received compliments everywhere you go? That was this dress in New York! I wore this dress during New York Fashion Week, and to have fashion industry professionals compliment my dress; it was like a dream come true! I couldn’t believe it! I now know, this dress will get worn by me A LOT during the fall season! Love!

Fall florals are a huge trend this fall season. So it is fun to have at least one item in your closet to rock this trend with. This dress is an easy way to wear fall florals. I love how it moves and flows as I walk. It also happens to be quite comfortable! Love that!

Since I was running from show to show, I chose to pair my fall floral dress with low heeled booties. These booties are super comfortable, and helped carry me through the day. Unfortunately they are sold out, but you can find a similar, low-heel pair online here, and a fringe pair here.

I wore this fall floral maxi dress on day five of New York Fashion Week. Day five was a busy day! I attended Irina Vitjaz, Taoray Wang, Leanne Marshall, Vivienne Tam, Anniesa Hasibuan, and I also went to the RewardStyle blogger party. I was on the go! To see coverage of these shows, please check out my NYFW recap online here.

The weather was much cooler on day five than it had been previously in the week. This gave me the opportunity to wear this dress. I was so thankful the humid heat was over! I do not function well in hot humidity. I grew up in the mild climate of the San Francisco Bay Area, I am not accustomed to east coast humidity. It really does me in!

Want to see what’s hot for spring 2017 from the runways of New York? Check out my NYFW trend report online here. I love sharing with you all the fabulous new trends for spring coming out of New York!
