Once again, I procrastinated finding outfits to wear to New York Fashion Week this month. It sneaks up on me EVERY time. A week beforehand, I’m always scrambling to throw together a few fashion-y outfits that are cool but also still… me. This time around I knew that I wanted to dress a little more casual (like I mentioned in yesterday’s post), so I thought the raw hem jean trend was the perfect way to marry casual and cool into one outfit. This is where Nordstrom comes through in the clutch! On-trend, budget-friendly and quick shipping – always keeps me from having a Fashion Police type moment in New York.
I still can’t believe that this September was my sixth time at New York Fashion Week! A lot has changed over those six seasons, and I think it’s an understatement to say that the tone (as well as the locations) have changed a LOT. The shows were more spread out than ever before, and the presence of bloggers was at an all-time high! Chatting more about how my trip this season was different than any other year and my new approach to NYFW in today’s full post.
The other day, I was trying to count how many times I’ve been to New York City. This past fashion week was my 10th time in the Big Apple – I couldn’t believe it y’all! Needless to say, I’ve learned quite a lot along the way when it comes to NYC airports, public transportation and maneuvering around the city in general after much duress. So I thought that it would be perfect to share my top 3 NYC travel tips in case anyone was planning fall or winter visits this year! (Already planning a return trip for fall!) I’ve teamed up with Sofft on this post because their Somers slip-on sneaker is hands-down my favorite airport shoe! Plus, this year it totally saved my feet in between fashion week shows and meetings!
Fall is in the air! Can you believe it? I was so excited to whip out booties and a scarf last week in New York. And better yet, I got a little practice in for fall pattern mixing! Plaid and leopard print are always a classic combo – someone hand me a pumpkin spice latte stat! Just kidding, I haven’t ordered one YET. But these Sole Society animal print booties have got me feeling 100% ready for fall leaves and pumpkins and ALL of the fall feels. See more of this outfit and yet another way to wear white after Labor Day in today’s full post!
With fashion week coverage all over the internet right now, it’s easy to feel runway inspired! But what about in your own home? Capri Blue – my favorite home fragrance brand – is an exclusive partner of this year’s NYFW shows. I’ve teamed up with them to share how my Capri Blue candles display a bit of fashion week glam around our house every day! Not to mention – they smell UNREAL and the gilded jars can be reused as beautiful containers when they’re finished. Sharing ways to reuse them in the full post!
Ps. Another special thing to note about Capri Blue candles – they’re made in the South. Like literally right down the interstate from me in Starkville, MS. SO much love for my southern brands!

Sparkles and embellishments are going to be huge for fall, and I love how the Capri Blue candles are the perfect amount of glitz that you might find in fashion accessories this season. Statement pieces are always in style!
