NYFW S/S 16 Recap {Part I}

Good Morning, Lovelies!  A bit behind the eight ball on these posts, but I promised them to you so that is what you are going to get!  Instead of doing a post for each designer during fashion week, (hello 1 million posts) I decided to do a few recaps of the looks I loved from designers over the span of the week.  Call me lazy or genius - I figured it was the best way for both of us to get the most out of Fashion week.  

Below are my favorites from the first few days.  I mentioned the designer and a little bit about the trend for Spring in each look for your reference.  

Rebecca Taylor - off the shoulder, ruffled/boho trends are still popular for Spring

Sachin & Babi - Florals and sheer pieces are prefect for those Spring weddings.

Tamara Mellon - African inspired prints as well as black and white are perfect mix-ups to typical pastel spring hues

Trina Turk - patterns, cut-outs and a retro vibe are on point for Spring

Marissa Webb - military, neutrals and tailored perfection are exactly what you expect from Marissa and her Spring line is just that mixed with sheer fabrics as well as a bit of romance

Tome - Classic, Black and White looks are still hot for Spring. Mix it up a bit with a dress over straight leg pants and add a belt

Long time no see!! The past few weeks have just gotten away from me!  With the Pope visiting DC last week and throwing work for a loop and then heading to Dallas last weekend to watch the Hogs (another loss, ugh), this week has been lots of catching up.  Whew!  I'm glad the weekend is finally here! As usual, some of my favorite links below.  TGIF! xo

Emmy Red Carpet

I had big plans to get this up yesterday, but life just got in the way.  Monday's are always a little crazy and time just slipped away from me.  But better late than never, right? 

The Emmy Red Carpet this year was full of color and had a variety of style, which in my opinion, makes it much more enjoyable to watch.  I get really excited to see women and men, for that matter, take risks and go with what they want to wear instead of what is traditional for award shows or the current trends.  With that being said, I have more than a few favorites from Sunday nights carpet and check out my choice for best dressed below. 

Ariel Winter in Romona Keveza

Danielle Brooks in Christian Siriano

Emily Robinson in Kayat

Emma Roberts in Jenny Packham

Jaimie Alexander in Armani Prive

January Jones in Ulyana Sergeenko

Jessica Pare in Monse

Jamie Lee Curtis in Stella McCartney

Judith Light in Zac Posen 

Regina King in Krikor Jabotian

Sarah Hyland in Zac Posen

Taylor Schilling in Stella McCartney

And my best dressed of the night goes to:

Kerry Washington in Marc Jacobs

Fall Want List

Good Morning, Lovelies! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  With the great weather we have been having lately, I am jumping in to my fall wardrobe with both feet.  Over the weekend we headed out to our storage unit to get my fall/winter clothes and I couldn't wait to go through all of it and figure out what I needed to get rid of and what I needed to add.

Over the past few months I have noticed a slight change in my style preferences, if you will.  I'm gravitating more towards pieces and looks I haven't really worn much.  I'm interested to see how this pans out; if' it's just a phase of me wanting to try something new, or if my taste is changing with me getting older.  Who knows!

Below are items I have on my ever growing fall want list.  Budget, you say? What budget? All of these are great additions to your wardrobe and can expand how you wear what's already in your closet.  What's on your Fall want list?

Erin Fetherston NYFW SS16

Erin Fetherston is always on my top ten list each fashion week.  Her designs are just breathtaking and feminine and make you want to get dressed up in one of her gorgeous pieces and go somewhere exquisite.  I fall more in love with her every season (if that’s possible).  Her Spring collection was everything you'd expect.  Sheer fabrics, soft pastels, retro florals and a touch of whimsy.  If you are into boho chic with a touch of femininity and romance, this collection has your name ALL over it.  Check out a few of my favorites below.

LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection

LC or Lauren Conrad as we have come to know her over the past several years, has done some major growing up and is far from her Laguna Beach days.  Wednesday night she debuted her LC Runway collection at New York Fashion Week and as usual, her clothes did not disappoint.  This Runway collection will be available at Kohl’s, along with her LC Lauren Conrad line. 

The looks for this collection are in one word; romantic.  Soft pastels, and array of textures, lace and a touch of ethereal femininity.  Think enchanted forest meets vintage-inspired boho chic.  Each look is different but they all go together and all of the pieces from this collection can be mixed and matched.  Which as someone who likes versatility and the best bang for her buck - this collection really caught my eye.  And the icing on the cake?  Every piece of this runway collection is affordable!  You don't have to shell out half month's rent to look fashionable! Well done LC!   

Below are my favorite looks from the show.  Check out the rest of the collection here
