Vintage inspired with Chico’s at New York Fashion Week

wearing: gold earrings c/o Chico’s / sunglasses c/o Chico’s / neckerchief scarf c/o Chico’s / black top c/o Chico’s / polka dot skirt c/o Chico’s / gold bangle bracelet c/o Chico’s / black pvc tote / black high heel boots /

One of the big trends I noticed on the spring 2020 runways was vintage inspiration from the 50’s, 60’s, and 90’s. Although we have barely touched the fall season, it is always fun to see which trends will reach well into the next year; and vintage inspiration is one of them!

When I spotted this mixed print, polka dot skirt at Chico’s for the fall season, I knew I needed I build a vintage inspired look around it. Chico’s has a fabulous selection of print scarves for fall, so I thought a contrasting print neckerchief tied 90’s style would do the trick. After all, 90210 has been revived, so aren’t we all feeling a little nostalgic for the 90’s?

I’m a sucker for a good black top which can pair with anything in my closet, so this understated black twist top looked perfect for tying the look together. I love how it looks amazing with this skirt, and also with jeans and sneakers. It’s definitely going to be my go-to black top this fall!

Now, isn’t fashion week all about pushing the limits of style? Of course! So I had to snap up these fun black and white sunglasses from Chico’s too. They added the perfect amount of pizzazz to my New York Fashion Week look. This was so much fun to wear to the runways! I loved mixing vintage inspiration from multiple decades, it’s a fun look.

I also wore this scarf around my ponytail with another outfit during the week, and the sunglasses were worn with every outfit except one. Chico’s has such great mix-and-match  pieces, they are great for travel and building a wardrobe in general. Be sure to check out everything new for fall at Chico’s!

Thanks for stopping by!

Island paradise to the streets of Silicon Valley

fall 2019 it bags

Outfit details: pearl earrings (similar here) / sunglasses / summer lipstick / white tee / palm print kimono (on major sale!) / snake belt / dark wash skinny jeans / nail polish / bold ring / Chloe bag / black espadrille mules / Hawaii outfit details here.

This kimono was so much fun to wear in Hawaii. I kept getting compliments on the street when I wore it, and perfect strangers don’t compliment my outfits very often!

When I got back home, I found myself reaching for this kimono often. Turns out, it’s perfect for spicing up jeans and a tee; you know I am always trying to level up basic jeans and a tee! This kimono is perfect; plus it’s super soft and comfortable. Love that!

To make this tropical kimono look right on the streets of Silicon Valley, I switched to a leather bag, ditched the hat, and wore more understated jewelry. Worked like a charm! I’m getting compliments on this kimono when I wear it here at home too. This is definitely my favorite piece of the year! Love love love!

There is nothing I love more than getting complimented on something I wear. Don’t we all put effort into our looks? It’s nice when people notice. I always try to compliment strangers when I like something they are wearing, sometimes it’s tough to remember. Since this kimono gets a lot of attention, I am making more of an effort to remember to let people know they look good. Sometimes a little compliment can help someone have a better day.
