I wore this outfit at New York Fashion on day three. I knew I would be visiting Kendra Scott’s showroom that day, and I wanted to wear an outfit designed around my favorite new necklace by Kendra Scott; just purchased in January! I absolutely love the bright color, and bold design, of this classic necklace by Kendra Scott. I had to design an outfit which would be all about the necklace, and would really show off the beautiful, bright color. I loved this black and white dress by Kate Spade and found it would be the perfect backdrop for the necklace. Since I knew I would be wearing these black and white, lug sole high heels by BCBG in New York, I thought it would be fun to color block the whole look black and white; while still allowing the bright hue of the necklace to shine through.
The weather in New York was beyond cold. As a “born and raised” NorCal girl, I felt like I had fallen into the frozen tundra; never to return! So, on my first, and second day, in New York, I bundled up in black pants (different pair each day!) and my coat. I wore my flat, lug sole boots by Donald J Pliner which I scored on sale, and wrapped myself in a scarf. It was cozy and comfy; perfect to combat the single digit temperatures! By day three I had acclimated which resulted in pulling out my heels and dressing up!
It was interesting to see all the people standing outside Lincoln Center either waiting for friends, or hoping to get their picture taken by street style photographers. Many of them were not wearing warm clothing; some even had bare legs! I guess when someone is from a cold climate, the wind chill doesn’t bother them. Not this California girl! I was frozen like a popsicle! I found myself walking really fast from the hotel to the shows; as well as from cabs to off-site shows. Brrr!
Well, I survived, and even wore tights three days in a row! Three cheers for avoiding frostbite!!
How do you survive the cold temperatures when you are traveling? Do you acclimate easily?
Stay tuned! In a few days I will post Kendra Scott’s beautiful spring 2015 collection; as well as give you a sneak peek at her amazing summer collection which will debut in April.
