New York Fashion Week has come and gone. My work schedule has been so busy that I haven't had time to update about NYFW on the blog until now. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have caught snippets of my days during that time. This year, NYFW was short but sweet for me. I didn't have time to take off work, so I squeezed in the festivities during the weekend when I was off work duty :) I always love the energy and inspiring fashion all around. 

For this look, I wore this colorful graphic dress. The texture and graphic print of this dress reminds me of a painting. Since the dress was a statement within itself, I kept the rest of the accessories as simple neutrals.

On this day, I was able to make it to the Spring/Summer 2015 shows for Lacoste, Son Jung Wan, and Malan Breton. All of the collections were on point and I always am in awe of the designers' beautiful pieces. I highlighted a personal favorite piece from each collection:
1) I always fall for Sun Jung Wan's clean, feminine, sparkly pieces, and this dress is no exception. 
2) Malan Breton's collection is all inspired by Taiwan, as his runway show was titled "A Journey To Taiwan." I loved his take on the integration of Asian fabric into western silhouettes. 
1) Lacoste is known for its classic, tailored style, which holds true in this season's collection. I love the refreshing nature of this dress. 

I also attended an event hosted by GiGi New York, Yosi Samra, and PRIV, who all helped me get #NYFWready :) Lastly, I had a great time at RewardStyle's rooftop party with Belinda, meeting and hanging out with other bloggers. Exhausting but an inspiring and fun-filled day!

Floral Midi

I'm soaking up the last of the warm summer days that are left and feeling darling in this floral midi skirt. The print makes me reminiscent of being on a tropical island. I couldn't help twirling in it :) Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!

Sunkissed: Pink Maxi Dress

pink maxi dress with halter top and gold wide belt
I went to the beach for part of the last weekend of summer. I wore this maxi dress to walk along the boardwalk, and the winds unintentionally made for some dramatic dress shots. This dress had me at hello with its colors, pleats, slit, and gold belt detail. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
