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.

Day 1 in the whirlwind of Fashion Week. Today I got to my new home, Dream Hotel. It lives up to its name and not to mention, the neighborhood is perfect for a stroll. Here's a peek into the first day along with one of my outfits:

Can't wait to share more from the week soon!

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:

Aerie In The City

This week has been filled with so many beautiful moments in NYC. As I was strolling through the streets of Soho, I stumbled upon Greecologies for a quaint breakfast. It was one of my favorites for atmosphere, authentic greek yogurt & various plates, and not to mention, fresh rose petal jam to top it off. So heavenly! The garden in the back was magical and the perfect place to retreat in the midst of a crazy day.

I felt right at home with this flowy nighty and bonfire vest from Aerie, making a perfect match of dressy and cozy. The temperature drastically changed during the trip, and I wasn't quite ready to throw on a big coat yet, so I paired these two pieces to layer on and off throughout the day. They were so comfy that I kept them for night time lounging after the long days too. That versatility is one of my favorite things about these pieces.
