Did you guys feel that? Feel the shift in the weather? The mornings are getting darker and colder, which only means one thing, Fall is coming. Fall is one of my favorite seasons, so I wanted to inspire you all to love Fall as much as me. Go spruce up your home and wardrobe (and eat some pumpkin and apple flavors). Boots, sweaters, tights, it’s all a-okay with me.

Braids used to be my go-to hairstyle on the “I don’t want to do my hair” days. Then braids became soo gorgeous that they’re great options whether you do or do not want to style your hair. Then came copper. Copper has become a huge trend in home and makeup, so it’s only logical to put it in your hair. Here’s how to incorporate copper in your hair:

I paired the Dembrr sweater with the Paladia skirt, added some BCBG heels. Oh, and just a little rhinestone Chanel to get really fancy.

Some people say you can’t wear white after Labor Day (I disagree, as you can tell from my NYFW posts, but that’s a different story), but why not put all your whites in your home? I know what you’re thinking, white in a home is dangerous, but if you keep it to simple, interesting, texturized, accessories, you cannot go wrong. Or, you can go all out and buy the chair (please will someone buy that chair and invite me over–I won’t drink red wine anywhere near it I promise).

White and cream is a thing (I am sorry grandma I know you probably hate this concept) and here is how I decided to wear it on Day 2:
I began with a white, sleeveless button down with a detailed collar and added a bow tie (not a traditional bow tie, but a long tie that I tied into a floppy bow). Originally I had planned to wear this with black shorts, but when I tried it and looked in the mirror, it felt boring. I added a cream midi skirt with gold stitching and a black underlay–and poof! chic happened.
Accessories included my black mulberry bag, gold watch, new brown-orange lipstick, and gold heels.
It’s rare that I am overly feminine with my clothes, so I pulled my hair into a messy pony (anything too styled would feel far to “done” for my personal style), kept my jewelry minimal, and balanced the look out with some cole haan shades that made the look feel a bit more modern, even though the shades had a retro feel. (This is why you need to try things on everyone, I thought these shades would have been way too theme-y but was wrong)

Day one: I made it to NYFW! My very own Superbowl. Day one here in NYC was long as expected, but a just a little bit more exciting than usual.
I came into town a bit earlier than planned to meet with some friends at Marriott to learn about their Marriott Rewards (looking for an easy way to earn and redeem points–use it!) and their new Flash Perks program, which brings you instant fun on your travels with exclusive offers and experiences, especially for your trip.
Thank you to the Renaissance for having me in a place I rarely stay, Times Square. I was in the middle of the action, but felt like I was miles away when inside of the serene hotel. I enjoyed cocktails in the lounge overlooking the lights, an amazing Flash Perks dinner (took a friend to The Heath and if you haven’t been- that’s a whole other post) and am even using my perks to visit the MOMA later in the week. I’d say I’m off to a decent start.

Well, headed to NYC this week for my biannual NYFW trip. I have never been so excited to attend shows as I am this year. Everything has been going overwhelmingly well with both fashion illustration and social channels that I can’t see where the week takes me.
