I don’t have a conventional 9 to 5, I do the blog full-time, but I do understand the need for wear-to-work pieces; I find the clothes I wear can have a huge impact on my mindset. New York really invigorated me style wise, because I was getting lazy here in Florida. Throw on a comfortable romper to hang out with the boyfriend or friends…no need to dress up. In comes fashion week and it’s basically a work week for me so I had to get down to business. I chose this great houndstooth high-waisted skirt from Express. I haven’t worn houndstooth since high school but something about this skirt really called to me. It was so hot this season so instead of sporting a blouse I chose this crop top and a lightweight knit jacket, also from Express. It’s really easy to take this look into the office, if you happen to work in one though. Switch the crop top out for a proper top, throw in some stockings or tights and a classic pump, you’re all set.

I work with Style Coalition quite a bit here on the blog, you can check out some of our projects here. It was so great to stop by their office space and put faces to the people (hi Christina!) who I’ve been emailing with for some time now. Lounges are always so appreciated during fashion week. It’s a constant go, go go, so it’s nice to have a spot amidst the madness to pause, recharge, and refresh. Style Coalition teamed up with TotallyHer and Burt’s Bees to host this invite only event. Extra special love for introducing me to this amazing Lip Crayon from Burt’s Bees. Who knew?! The pigment is amazing and layers great with the other color products in their line. The makeup artist showed me a few tricks hehe.

This is the first look I wore for New York Fashion Week. I flew in and quickly changed and headed out to Lincoln Center. It’s usually warm during this season but THIS warm. It was definitely a feat to dress this season and keep cool. I loved this lightweight short suit set from Missguided. It’s made of a light crepe fabric. The print also kills it. I paired it with red lips and red sunnies for a nice contrast. My girl Emily was on hand for me for the entirety of fashion week to shoot my looks and just generally hang with me. Can’t it always be this good haha.
