Checked Out

Missguided Grid Print Dress

When the term “shift dress” comes to mind I immediately imagine a conservative and classic structured dress. Though this is often the case, I have developed a new obsession with Missguided’s shift dress section (well.. all of their dresses for that matter), which contain a wide array of styles from classic to modern, structured to slouchy. This checked shift I snagged for my recent trip is one of my newest favorites. The shape is extremely comfortable and perfect for those relaxed afternoons, and the shirt sleeve tie waist totally embraces my favorite 90s trend. I paired this dress with my platform boots and mirrored aviators for a casual daytime look.

Leather Trimmed 1

Leather Trim Top

One trend we cannot stop craving this season is definitely leather. Whether you choose a full-on leather look like Ellen or decide to add subtle hints into your look like I did, leather will definitely give your look a simple yet bold kick for Fall. Finding an awesome pair of jeans at an incredible price is often a rarity, so when I found these distressed leather-trimmed skinnys, I knew I had to have them. I paired them with my leather-trimmed top and my Gorjana earrings for a fun birthday night look! See how I styled this bold trend below and shop my links beneath to steal my look:

Travel Wear 2

Trendy Travel Outfit

When it comes to traveling, comfort is definitely my primary focus for dressing. One of my biggest pet peeves is when I see people venturing through the airport looking like they just rolled out of bed in their pajama pants and a college tee. With all of the cozy-chic pieces readily available in retail stores, I think it’s time we all put that look to rest. Whether you choose a great pair of stretch jeans, trendy joggers, chic sneakers, or a classic Vince tee, your travel look will be updated in a snap.

For my recent travel experience, I picked up a new pair of DL1961 stretch skinnys for the journey and paired them with an oversized Free People thermal. I tossed on my favorite floppy hat to give that “put together” look, my floppy combat boots to save my soles from heels, and my favorite leather messenger bag for all of my travel goodies.

Backstage at Rebecca Taylor

Rebecca Taylor has always been one of my favorite designers, so when we were invited to attend her runway show at NYFW, I was more than excited! Rebecca Taylor is one designer that my sisters and I have always mutually agreed on, partially due to her mix of printed fabrics, feminine detailing, and flowy boho shapes.

The show was held at Center548 (same as Kate Spade, though hardly recognizable!) and was an incredible parade of fabulous look after look from the 2015 Spring collection. As upbeat music blared through the room, the energy level was at an all-time high as the models debuted her newest pieces. With pastels, embellishments, fresh shapes, and more, it’s safe to say Rebecca Taylor nailed it once again!

Once the show ended, we had an incredible opportunity to head backstage and meet Rebecca Taylor, as well as get a personal look at all of the clothes. Backstage at NYFW with one of my favorite designers was definitely a dream come true and was an experience I will never forget! Take a look at some of our pictures from the show and visit the Rebecca Taylor website to shop her collections:

Kate Spade 2015 Spring Presentation 1

Kate Spade New York Fashion Week

Bright colors and vibrant prints always come to mind when I think of Kate Spade, so it was no shock to discover the Kate Spade New York Spring 2015 Presentation would be one of the most charming and delightful displays of fashion I’ve seen yet. Kate Spade transformed the interior space at Center548 into an outdoor wonderland, complete with florals, grass, and classic striped awnings. As dozens of models stood high over the crowds, party-goers got a firsthand look at the newest collection. From matching separates and bold prints to fringe bucket hats and clear visors, the Spring collection is definitely a must-have!
