There are so many cool trends coming out of the gates this season and one of my favorites that I heavily noticed during NYFW this year was the introduction into more technical and vintage inspired sneakers. These aren’t your grandmas walking shoes folks (although some definitely look that way).
Welcome to statement coat and sweater season! I really love adding in various prints, colors and textured coats into my wardrobe this time of the year, they can make the simplest of outfits really pop. There’s something as simple as adding a bright pop of red to a simple jeans and tee look (plus of course some cool pointed toe white mules). Styling a red longline coat might seem intimidating to some but there are a ton of ways to wear it.
All red everything am I right?! I have been living in sweaters and sweater skirts so I definitely didn’t lie in my last post when I said I am excited on these kind of pieces! Once again I’m repping all River Island pieces here and I gotta say that their styles do NOT disappoint. This all red sweater and sweater skirt set is perfect for the office come these Fall months and by adding a white heel you really add an additional pop to the look. Best part of this look is that it can be transitioned into happy hour or a date night dinner after work hours.
If you know me, then you know I’m in love with high waisted wide leg trousers and this mauve pair from Whimsy + Row is a dream. Not only are they super comfortable but they are the perfect color! The perfect mix between brown and purple that creates a really good neutral for your wardrobe. I decided to pair the trousers with a cute one shoulder blouse and white pumps for a brunch date with one of my good friends.
When your shirt is falling a part a little bit but it’s supposed to. I’m a big fan of the latest special edition collection River Island has with fashion designer Ashish. This collection has a bunch of cool and fresh gender neutral clothing pieces like this crew neck. I decided to pair this crew neck with a fun pleather zip up skirt and these adorable green feather sling back kitten heels.
I’m very excited to be partnering with Grana on their latest knitwear collection made from Mongolian Cashmere and Italian Merino Wool. Alongside their new knits, Grana is challenging everyone to explore how we pursue quality in our lives just as how they pursue quality in their clothing, fabrics and life. One of my ways I pursue quality is by taking time to step away from social media and taking in reality. I also love visiting theme parks, no matter how old I get I’ll never get sick of it! My third, but not final way I pursue quality is to be a good person and always lend a helping hand when needed.
I’m absolutely getting the biggest FOMO right now with everyone out at Paris Fashion Week so the best way for me to cope with it is dressing the part! I’ve partnered up with River Island once again to create this look! I’m loving their studio plaid wrap tie waist blazer based on the intricate detailing it has on the sleeves and on the back of the jacket which has these gorgeous clips lining the entire back.
Sometimes you get the perfect combination of feminine with a masculine twist. I think this paper bag waist skirt from River Island fits the bill of adding a classic color to a more modern shape. I decided to offset the more masculine elements of the skirt with a really cool off shoulder puffy sleeve striped blouse (tucked in ever so slightly). I really love how the skirt hits so high on the waist so you can easily tuck in a blouse and create a dress like silhouette.
I had such an amazing time at NYFW SS18 this year. I feel like every year I learn a little bit more from the year prior. Although I had an amazing time it was definitely a short compact trip that was packed with activity. I always wish I could be in New York just a little bit longer but alas, I’ll make sure to extend my trip in February! There are a ton of mixed reviews from bloggers that I hear about Fashion Week and I definitely agree that it’s not for everyone.
I’m so excited to be partnering with one of my favorite brands River Island! For the longest time I was so bummed out to find such incredible pieces but realizing that they were only UK based :(. BUT lucky us, there is now a US site! *Cue applause track. I picked up this adorable tee that reads “I love you forever” in French.
