They say twice is nice, and it most certainly is true when it comes to New York Fashion Week! My first NYFW experience was in February 2016, this past weekend was round two – and it was an absolutely amazing time! Read the blog post to see my favorite designers, the best coffee shop in Manhattan, and a new friend I made in the Big Apple!
Prints and patterns and colors, oh my! I’m not a fan of winter weather, but I’ve been told by many that their favorite part of the cold is layering up. Well, today’s outfit is a few layers with different patterns for a fun, inspiring casual preppy look! Along with this outfit is one of my current obsessions, a logo ball cap by Belle Meade Proper, an equestrian fashion brand that I’m totally digging these days! See more of my look in this post!
Black and white. The colors complement each other as the most classic dynamic duo in the entire spectrum. This collared black dress is so preppy and so chic, that not only did I fall in love at first sight – but everyone else did do! Anytime I wear this dress, I get compliments on the polished, classy vibe the dress gives the world. What’s your favorite black and white outfit? Share with me in a comment!
The pattern of the day is… *drum roll, please* – plaid! The weather in Dallas has been a roller coaster lately, up one week and down the next. Today’s look is cozy and warm, with a plaid pattern wool coat, super thick turtleneck sweater, pants, and riding boots. My favorite thing to wear in dreary, winter months is a pop of color to brighten up the day, and my mood! A pretty color puts some prep in my step!
Not every day is worthy of dressing up (although most days are)! When I feel like laying back and relaxing out – of course, I like to do it in style! These sweat pants, called the Saturday pant at J.Crew, are my absolute favorite pair, they’re my favorite color (gray) and super soft and comfy, oh, and of course, cute too! Today’s look also includes a chambray shirt, watch, and ballet flats. I’m casual chic all weekend long!
If I’m ever in a hurry and don’t have time to think, my go-to outfit is always a tweed skirt and shirt. Tweed is my favorite fabric to wear in the fall and winter seasons! Today’s look is a pattern mix with the always classic black and white tweed and a striped button-down shirt. Chic and classy, this outfit is perfect for work, networking or a fun event (like an art gallery exhibition or a hot date!) We’ve had a sunny week so far in Dallas, so, of course, I had to add a pair of sunnies to top this outfit off!
This time of year, gray skies are quite the norm! What’s the perfect pick-me-up (besides a hot cup of tea, of course)? A bright and happy color coat to warm my heart and my body! I am beyond obsessed this season with this J.Crew parka, it’s cozy and stylish too! Of course, what better to pair this look with than a fair isle sweater. It just feels like winter (but in a good way) all snuggled up in this casual delight of an outfit!
