The Layering Piece Bloggers Love Right Now

Sometimes the best trend spotting during fashion week isn't on the runways but on the people attending the runway shows! I always consider what other people wear during fashion week a good indicator of what's "in" for the season ahead. One of the repeat streetstyle trends I saw this year - long vests. I saw them worn over mini dresses and rompers. Over culottes and skirts. You can even wear a long-line vest to dress up a pair of distressed skinny jeans like in today's post.  

I love this suede sleeveless trench that I found at Express. I think it would be so cute buttoned up and belted over a cowl neck sweater and leggings you guys! 

To give you a jumpstart to getting vest-dressed, I've rounded up some of my favorite longer vests this season in today's post!

Wednesday Wants: Suede & Sweater Dresses

Today's post is all about how to wear your sweater dresses now instead of waiting to pull out those over-the-knee boots! Pair your knit dresses with a pretty suede heel like the one in today's post by Johnston and Murphy. I'm loving the Brianna slingback heel because it's a like little taste of fall while still appropriate for warmer weather. 

The stacked heel of the Brianna is short making it both comfortable for all day wear and the ultimate workwear shoe! Wear with little cropped pants and a cardigan for the office and with a pair of faux leather leggings for date night too. 

For more options, I've rounded up more sweater dress styles plus more of my picks from the Johnston and Murphy fall collection!

How to Set Investment Bag #Goals

I touched on today's blog topic very briefly back in this post, but I knew when I wrote it I wanted to dedicate a bigger post on the topic of investment pieces and in particular - investment handbags. It seems like every other week bloggers are popping up with brand new, beautiful designer bags - the highly coveted Chanel Boy Bag and the newly popular Gucci Dionysus collection for example. It's like a race to see who can snag the next "it" bag first, so I wanted to share my thoughts on my designer handbags and the "investments" that went along with them.

NYFW SS17 Recap

 I wanted to share my New York Fashion Week recap (finally a week later!) now that I've gotten home and back in front of my computer! I've outlined where we stayed, where we ate, my favorite activities - and one of my outfit's too!

Plus, stay tuned for a post dedicated to my favorite trends seen during fashion week coming later this week!

Where to Stay

This was my first time ever staying in the Flatiron which is quite different than our normal Soho digs. We found The Evelyn Hotel with their generous suites – seriously the most room that we’ve had during fashion week. The area was a nice quiet respite every evening when we came back from the hustle and bustle of fashion week activities and was also one of the most convenient locations that we’ve had.

Cabs and ubers to the two main show locations were no more than 10 minutes away when in previous years rides from Soho could take almost 30 minutes with traffic to Moynihan Station. We actually made it to most shows EARLY this season which I’ve never been able to say before! I'd say besides the comfy robes and slippers and endless pastry buffets every morning, the location of The Evelyn was the absolute best!

We were able to walk to food within blocks of this location – I may have hit up Chipotle TWICE. (It was a block away, don’t judge me.) We also walked to Dreamdry for blowouts and were right down the street from Madison Square Park where a little food market was set up – so so cute.

Where to Eat

Besides Chipotle, I had many delicious meals this trip at a few new places that I’ve never been. I’d highly recommend Mercer Kitchen in Soho, Marlin Grill attached to the Tommy Bahama store (sounds weird, but so good), Gallow Green (2nd time going to this rooftop restaurant), the Standard Highline’s restaurant that has a secret burger only offered on certain nights, and if you’re looking for a boozy brunch with rap music – look no further than LAVO.

Favorite Shows:

I’m always in love with the shows that have ballgowns and beading, so I loved Tadashi Shoji and Jenny Packham. Monique Lhuillier changed her show day, so I missed that show – but always one of my favorites.

My favorite show that I could picture myself wearing every single thing – Marissa Webb. Lots of cargos and ginghams in surprisingly feminine silhouettes. Loved every single look in this show. Saw a lot of celebrities and major bloggers at this show, so you know it was good.

Best cool girl show is hands down Rebecca Minkoff. Not only was it ready-to-buy straight off the runway, but she had some of my favorite bloggers walking the runway AND a live band playing as they walked. Not to mention if you block off a street in Soho, and your show is going to be legit.

Favorite Brand Events:

One of my favorite dinners was with Sole Society and ArconaBeauty before the Tadashi Shoji show. Models in the show were wearing Sole Society heels, so as a little pre-show celebration, we went to Gallow Green for rosé and small plates. So delish and one of the cutest rooftop garden restaurants in the city.

Gigi New York is hosting the most adorable pop-up shop in the Meatpacking District for the entire month of September.
