Day two of New York Fashion Week was a ton of fun! The weather was warm; much warmer than I am used to it being at fashion week in February! Normally the temperatures are well below thirty, and there is always at least one day in single digits. This season, the temperatures were hovering in the fifties; much warmer than at home in the San Francisco Bay Area!

So, for day two of New York Fashion Week, I decided to wear a winter into spring look for a busy day of shows. In the morning, through to mid-day, this spring maxi dress from Chico’s was perfect for the weather. I didn’t need a coat! Was this the twilight zone?? Why wasn’t it freezing?? That morning and afternoon, I attended Fashion Hong Kong followed by Nonie, without a coat. This dress garnered several compliments from other show guests, and was the perfect weight for the the high fifties temperatures.

When evening was getting close, temperatures fell to the forties, so I threw on my 1970s style faux fur coat over my dress, and switched up my handbag to evoke a vintage vibe with my overall look. This was a fun way to make this spring maxi dress transition from winter into spring. It is so versatile! I attended Chiara Boni le petite robe that evening which was perfect for the outfit. She had a vintage vibe on her runway, so my vintage look worked quite well.

Since the day was busy, I never actually had a chance to sit down for a meal! After Chiara Boni, I wore my spring Chico’s maxi dress styled for winter out to dinner at Pepolino’s. It’s a fabulous Italian restaurant close to Spring Studios where the shows were held. Every season I enjoy their risotto and pasta. It is a must-try next time you visit New York!

My fabulous friend Dawn from Fashion Should be Fun took these photos with my new camera. They came out really good!
