Asymmetrical lines at New York Fashion Week

wearing: silver oval earrings / Chanel lipstick / black draping asymmetrical dress (under $200!!) / bold silver cuff (on major sale!!) / Chanel fall nail polish / Givenchy bag / black and silver watch / silver booties (so comfortable!)

One of the biggest questions I have to answer every season when I go to fashion week is, ‘what do I wear at New York Fashion Week?’ There are several different directions one could go when choosing a New York Fashion Week outfit. Some people dress comfortably and blend into the crowd, while others wear a trend salad in the craziest way possible in the hopes that street style photographers will capture their image.  I’m closer to the comfort zone, then the pea-cocking zone (as dressing to photographed it referred to).

The clothing I buy for my New York Fashion Week outfits need to be pieces I know I will re-wear when in my daily life. I have needed a new little black dress for my closet for several months now. This prompted me to find a fabulous little black dress I could wear to fashion week, as well as keep in my closet for last minute dinners, theater events, and parties. A little black dress which is both comfortable and flattering is always the perfect wardrobe staple!

I was thrilled to find this little black dress. It has draped, asymmetrical lines which is an extremely hot trend for fall 2017. The fabric is a cotton jersey which feels like a soft tee-shirt but looks dressier then a tee. The draping hits in all the right spots; taking ten pounds off my body. I love clothing which makes me thinner then I am! Love!

Despite the fact that I was wearing black, famous street style photographer Denton Taylor snapped a few photos of my little black dress! It was so much fun! Who says you can’t get snapped by photographers while being practical in your fashion week outfit ideas?

These silver boots turned out to be really comfortable, and helped get me through a long day of shows. I did a lot of standing in lines, and walking to shows; these boots were made walking, and that’s just what they did! Love that!

This was my outfit for Saturday, which was my second day of shows at New York Fashion Week. I went to Taoray Wang, Runa Ray, Custo Barcelona, Banana Republic x Olivia Palermo, A Detacher, and Academy of Art. Between A Detacher and Acdemy of Art, I swung over to the rewardStyle Rooftop Part. It was so much fun seeing so many of my fellow bloggers; and many blogger friends! Here is a fun little video I took with Dawn from Fashion Should be Fun and Laura from Have Need Want. We are “Charlie’s Angels.” You can tell, right? haha

Stay tuned for more coverage from the New York Fashion Week shows. Spring 2018 is looking fabulous!

Fall wide leg pants and a ruffle top

fall ruffle tops affordable fall outfits proenza schouler hava handbag blogger affordable fall wide leg pantsaffordable fall wide leg pants stripedaffordable wide leg pants

wearing: blue tassel earrings / Chanel lipstick / winter white ruffle top c/o SheIn (under $15!!) / bold silver cuff (on major sale!!) / Chanel fall nail polish / white leather watch / Proenza Schouler Hava satchel / blue fall wide leg pants c/o SheIn (under $20!!) / silver mules (under $100 and super comfy!!)

It is almost officially fall! Despite the close proximity of the fall season’s start date, the weather here in the Bay Area has been heating up like crazy! I wore these fall wide leg pants last weekend when temperatures soared to 103 degrees. They kept me cool, while allowing me to rock one of fall 2017’s trends; the wide leg pant.

Wide leg pants for fall are a huge trend! We are seeing all types of fabrics being constructed into fall wide leg pants. I love how this pair flows and offers an on-trend stripe pattern featuring navy and winter white. This winter white ruffle top works perfectly with the pants; and it is a cool fabric making it perfect for early fall’s hot temperatures. When the weather cools down in about five to six weeks, this ruffle top and these wide leg pants will transition into cooler temperatures with the addition of boots and a moto jacket; bonus points if it’s a silver moto jacket! So hot for fall!!

The pants, ruffle top, and shoes make a complete outfit priced under $115. Isn’t that amazing!! I love finding great deals on fashion-forward items which will take me through an entire season.

What do you think about the fall wide leg pant trend this season? Is this a trend you plan to rock? It is pretty easy to wear, even if you are short. I am 5’4″ and I love how they look. These pants can be worn at the ankle, or cropped; depending on your height, and where they hit you. Cropped wide leg pants are just as hot, and on trend, as regular length. Which type do you prefer?

Kendra Scott fall 2017 collection kick-off party

kendra scott fall 2017 collection

The Kendra Scott fall 2017 collection has arrived! As you know, Kendra Scott is one of my favorite jewelry designers. I love her colorful collection which includes pieces designed by inspiration from her travels. When the Kendra Scott store at Santana Row announced they were having a fall 2017 collection kick-off party, I knew I had to attend!

Kendra Scott knows how to throw a party! There was a live DJ playing popular tunes, an Italian Soda Bar, and delicious appetizers. So yummy! I met up with my friend Laura from Have-Need-Want, and we checked out the Kendra Scott fall 2017 collection while enjoying the party. So fun! Somehow we failed to get a picture of us together at the party. Um, #BloggerFail

After the party, we enjoyed a yummy dinner at Left Bank. I tried the Vegetarian Risotto and it was delicious! Highly recommend!!

kendra scott fall 2017 bracelets

How beautiful are these bracelets! They are extremely similar to a bracelet from Kendra Scott’s fall 2013 collection which I own in gold. I was thrilled to see them as part of Kendra Scott’s fall 2017 collection since I get a ton of compliments and questions about my gold one. I am tempted to get the updated version in the rose gold and the antique silver. So pretty!!

kendra scott fall 2017 earrings

How divine is this purple-red stone named “Bordeaux Tiger’s Eye!” These statement earrings are hotter then hot for fall. Statement earrings are a big fall 2017 trend, and these earrings fit the bill. I would love a pair for the fall season, and also to wear for upcoming holiday parties!

These earrings are at the top of my Kendra Scott fall 2017 wish list. I want them in silver, and as soon as I get my next paycheck; they will be mine! I already have the silver ring featured in this photo, so when worn together, they will be fabulous!

There is that pretty Bordeaux Tiger’s Eye again! Isn’t is fabulous! I can’t wait to pick a piece out and add it to my collection. The purple-red hue is divine; and a must-have for any jewelry collection. I am in love!

These necklaces are soooooo pretty! I want the one in Ivory Illusion with yellow gold. It is really pretty and easy to wear with any color palette. It can also be worn in any season; it’s another must-have! This necklace also comes in that beautiful Bordeaux Tiger’s Eye. Love!

kendra scott fall 2017 nail polish

Kendra Scott has such pretty nail polish! I love all of these metallic colors. One of the nail polish trends for fall 2017 is metallic nails. These colors fit perfectly into the trend! Which color is your favorite?

All in all, the Kendra Scott fall 2017 collection is beautiful; and easy to integrate into the fall trends from the runways, which have made it to the streets. If you are local to the Bay Area, check out the collection in person at Santana Row, if not, you can see it in all it’s beautiful glory online at KendraScott.com.
