I left my He(art) in San Francisco. Ah, this conjures up visions of Tony Bennett belting out our city’s unofficial theme song. It also conjures up a modern-day vision of LikeToKnow.it’s heart in a circle logo; which you might be familiar with from Instagram.

The summer of 2017 has been the summer of likes; Instagram likes that is. The LikeToKnow.it team has been traveling around the country installing pop-up wall’s in all of our major cities. These pop-up walls last about one month, and offer a colorful background for taking photos worthy of all the likes on Instagram. Like it? Ha! I love it!

In case you are reading this and wondering what in the world LikeToKnow.it is, it is an app where you can shop your favorite outfits, products, beauty products, home, products etc. from LikeToKnow.it enabled photos found on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest. If you screenshot a photo bearing the LikeToKnow.it logo in the bottom right-hand corner, the photo and product details will appear in your LikeToKnow.it app with shoppable links. You can learn more about it from this post I wrote in April.

The San Francisco wall was officially launched on August 16, 2017. To celebrate, Dawn from Fashion Should Be Fun and I went up to the city for meetings, lunch, and of course, photos in front of the wall! The San Francisco He(art) wall features so many pretty colors; but I have to admit I am in love with the portion bearing blue and green tones. Isn’t it fabulous!

You too can take your Instagram worthy photo in front of the wall; but hurry! It will only be there until September 16, 2017. The wall is located on the Palmer’s SF building on the  corner of Fillmore and Clay. Since it is in the Fillmore shopping district, you can combine your wall visit with lunch or brunch; and some serious shopping! Love! Or should I say; Like!

So I have rambled on about this fabulous wall, but can we change gears for a minute and chat about this dress?! In anticipation of the wall, I purchased this white dress so that I would not clash with the color palette; which was still a secret when I was shopping for a wall-worthy ensemble!

I was thrilled to find this dress. It is under $100 and turned out to be extremely comfortable. What threw me for a loop was when a woman walking on Fillmore street stopped to tell me how much she liked my dress! This does not happen often, so when it does, I know I need to re-wear the dress as often as possible!

If you are looking for a little white dress, which can be a fabulous go-to piece in your closet, this one is under $100; so you can’t go wrong! Plus, my Mom accused me of spending $400+ on it, so it looks like it cost much more then it did. I am not sure she believed me when I told her the price! haha

The dress is a little sheer, so I wore white tennis shorts and a white tank top underneath to make sure everything was covered. Worked like a charm!

Let me know if you stop at the wall in San Francisco! If you have snapped photos in front of one of the other LikeToKnow.it walls around the country this summer, I would love to see the pictures! Drop your link below.

Thanks for stopping by!

XOXO

Bridge & Boro denim at New York Fashion Week

Wearing: ivory tassel earrings / Chanel spring lipstick / pink and silver jacket (under $200!) / denim short c/o Bridge & Boro / Alexander McQueen scarf / black tee (old, also love this one) / jeans c/o Bridge & Boro / Gucci belt / Givenchy handbag / Kendra Scott ring / Chanel spring nail polish / black socks / silver velcro street sneakers

On day three of New York Fashion Week, I went for a NY street style look. So many NYFW attendees wear denim; it is fun to see how they make it fabulous! I decided it was my turn to wear denim, and amp up my casual style into something street style worthy. I could not have done it without these fabulous denim pieces from New York denim brand Bridge & Boro.

Bridge & Boro makes the most fabulous denim pieces! They have limited edition pieces made from scarce denim fabric, as well as standard pieces in their collection with a timeless quality. The company is family owned and run; and the collection is made in New York!

It is extremely difficult to fit my body into jeans. I have always had a waist size much smaller than my hips and thighs. This is a problem many women have; let’s face it, we are hourglass for a reason! The majority of denim companies out there make their jeans for men, and then size them down for women without re-working them to actually fit a woman’s body. Bridge & Boro just fits. The jeans are made for women. The result is a flattering fit which will look amazing on most women. Love that!

In addition to a women’s denim collection, Bridge & Boro offers denim for men; which is just as fabulous as the women’s collection. Love! I definitely need to get a pair for my hubby!

Denim on denim is a huge trend this year. Although it has been going strong for the past couple of years, denim is bigger than life for spring 2017. Designers are showing it on everything from clothing to accessories. This is the perfect season to rock the denim on denim trend; and invest in some fabulous denim pieces!  For your perfect denim this spring, check out Bridge & Boro at bridgenboro.com.

It was fun wearing this outfit on day three of fashion week. I was snapped by several street style photographers outside the show. Here is a fun photo by fabulous street style photographer Denton Taylor:

Denton Taylor snapped this picture outside The Skylight Clarkson when I was on my way to my first show of the day; Asia Fashion Collection by Vantan. In addition to Asia Fashion Collection, on day three I went to Taoray Wang, Romeo Hunte, Yuna Yang, CG by Chris Gelinas, A Detacher, Georgine, and Francesca Liberatore. In addition to shows, I attended a fun blogger brunch hosted by Twiirly and Amour Vert. You can read about it here.

I am looking forward to wearing this denim on denim look by Bridge & Boro often this upcoming spring season; minus the jacket and scarf. It will look cute with slides, or high heel sandals. The pieces will also look fabulous worn with other items from my closet. They are so versatile and fabulous! Love!

One of the big trends off the New York Fashion Week runways is denim. Denim for spring 2017 is a hot trend this year. We are seeing denim in dark, medium, and light washes. The American fabric, originally inspired from sailcloth made in Genoa, Italy, is being found on every type of clothing and accessory piece you can think of for spring 2017. This is the fabric of the season!

Since I am already a huge denim fan, I have had my eyes wide open when shopping for spring 2017. When I spotted this top by TopShop, I knew it had to be mine! I love the funky buckle details, and shirred hemlines. It is a classic top, reminiscent of 1960s silhouettes. This makes it modest yet eye-catching. Love that!

I love how it looks when I wear it with black skinny jeans. As the weather gets warmer, it will be cute to pair it with a pencil skirt.

What are your thoughts on the denim trend for spring 2017?
