Welcome To New York

Hello from NYC! I've been here for the past few days starting this years Fashion Week in a snowy blizzard. It's been a challenging weather situation, but overall so excited to be back in one of my favorite cities again with some close friends.

I pulled out some classic basics with a few edgy details on the bag, hoodie, and booties. As you know, I'm in love with any black outfit with unique detailing and thought this New York sweater was perfect.

All pieces are some of my current favorites from Urban Outfitters's new arrivals and I'm excited to be sharing them this month with you all. Take a look below for more details:

Fall Beauty With Aerie

This past week has been a craze during fashion week and it was challenging to find moments to lay low. Everything I did from morning to night revolved around a social engagement and strict schedule. Any pocket of free time I could find, I'd wander around my neighborhood and I got to find some gems like Giovanni Rana (part of the lovely Chelsea Market).

During the afternoon I got to capture some of my favorite pieces from Aerie. I layered the chambray shirt dress with their oversized sweater on an off day for a simple, every day look. What I love are the minimal details like the gold rings with the criss-cross ties woven in to give it a little pop. I also tied the dress in a knot on the bottom to create some different lengths throughout the bottom.

If you didn't already know, Aerie has had several campaigns highlighting different aspects of natural beauty. I've partnered with them in the past for their untouched ads using models of all sizes here. Now, it's great to enter the Fall season in partnership with their new campaign using no makeup.

NYFW // Winter Blood

Hello from New York! It's been a nonstop week adventuring around and experiencing the madness of NYFW. Every corner you turn, there's an event, celebration, or gathering happening and it makes this place feel like the Christmas of fashion.

I've been in awe and trying to soak in each moment I can. I've learned that being easily captivated allows you to connect to things that could very well change your life in that moment. It's been a lot of learning, fun, and work!

Below I'm sharing one of my looks from this week, and I absolutely love it. With this cold weather it's been a challenge to put things together, but I gathered one of my favorite coats from Willow & Clay, gifted by the best team at Bollare, and this cropped mesh top from Tobi below:
