Rose Gold Sequins

Getting asked to be photographed outside of Lincoln Center for Vidal Sassoon.

It was all about the nude pumps and girly skirts with Rachel at the rewardStyle party.

For my final look from NYFW I threw on my rose gold sequin party skirt to mingle with the most fashionable bloggers at the rewardStyle party. We had the pleasure of enjoying the city view from the rooftop of the Empire Hotel while sipping on specialty cocktails, trying on Kendra Scott jewels, and talking all things fashion. My most favorite thing about fashion week has to be the new friendships I make with bloggers from all over the country who share a similar passion with me. I leave happy knowing we can stay connected through social media and this tight knit community of blogging.

Until next year, New York.

Black Jumpsuit

When in NYC you can never go wrong with all black anything. I've had this jumpsuit for a few years now and it's still one of my go-to pieces when I can't figure out which tops and bottoms to mix and match. Getting dressed is a whole lot simpler when something easy and chic like this comes in one piece. I wore this outfit on day 2 of NYFW to a blogger brunch hosted by The Vane, which is a new mobile app that helps you plan your outfits based on the weather in your location or when packing for that special vacation you've had planned. With the weather so unpredictable now-a-days this app will come in handy to help you dress accordingly. Try it out for yourself and download it here

Recapping my first day in the city for NYFW! Let me start off by sharing with you the crazy morning I had en route to NYC. My bus arrived in Boston 1-hour later than scheduled, my new ETA was cutting it close to the 2:30pm Trina Turk show I planned to attend, outlets on the bus were not working and my phone was at 50%, I somehow successfully put on my make-up while on the bus using my friend's iPad mini camera as a mirror, the bus dropped me off at 2pm on Fashion Ave, I called an Uber to Lincoln Center and spontaneously asked the driver if I could use the back seat of his van as a changing room. He chuckled, and in 10 minutes I went from leggings and a white tee to a black romper and leopard heels. Ta-da! And I arrived just in time for the start of the Trina Turk & Mr. Turk Presentation, which I was thrilled to attend.

Trina and Mr. Turk's Spring/Summer 2015 "Pop Art Flower Mart" collection was one I would have certainly regretted missing out on. The brilliant print mixing and color matching with graphic stripes and geometric jacquards had me yearning for Spring. It felt like every outfit was ready for it's own little party and I definitely wanted to be on the guest list. My favorites were the Poppy print topper for it's vibrant color mixing, the Sunset maxi sweater dress, and the Trellis Scarf print silk crepe de chine caftan. Let's fast forward to Spring so I can cross them off my wish list and add them to my closet. 

What do you think? Are there any favorites you'll be adding to your must-have list for Spring?

Endless Summer featuring Club Monaco {Part 3}

Club Monaco Annalisa Cropped Sweater c/o | ASOS skirt (similar here) | Michael Kors watch | Kate Spade 'Shawna' sunglasses | Madewell bangles

Club Monaco made this crop top trend look too irresistibly good. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to style this Annalisa Cropped Sweater especially as we transition into Fall. I foresee this looking cozy chic underneath a black boyfriend blazer paired with high waisted black denim and these beautiful booties. As we say goodbye to warmer temps and longer days, my memories from this phenomenal Summer will live on through photographs captured with family and friends. 

It's time to welcome back my favorite season and bring out the boots!

Thanks so much for following along on this collaboration with A Boston Blazer and Club Monaco. If you missed it from the start, check out Part One and Two.

I'm currently en route to NYFW for the weekend! Follow along with all the festivities through my Instagram.

Endless Summer featuring Club Monaco {Part 2}

Club Monaco jumper c/o | Warby Parker c/o | Gorjana necklace c/o | Madewell bangles

This Sara Embroidered Jumper is another piece of endless Summer style (check out Part 1 here) that works great as a beach cover-up or on-the-go for a day of exploring your way through town. Navy and white is a classic color combo that never disappoints on any skin tone, so this is a significant staple piece that will keep you style ready for many more seasons by the pool.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's last post of this series featuring Club Monaco and check out Alex's take on endless Summer style over at A Boston Blazer.

For outfit details seen on George visit A Boston Blazer

This Summer is one for the books. From beach escapes, to road trips, family barbecues, to outdoor movies, and late nights spent with the best of friends, this is one Summer I'll never forget. As an official farewell to these adventure filled months, I've teamed up with my friend Alex from A Boston Blazer and Club Monaco at Cambridgeside Galleria in Cambridge, MA to show you our favorite pieces for endless Summer style to wear year after year. Club Monaco is both mine and Alex's favorite place to shop for unique pieces with a mix of trendy and timeless wardrobe staples. Some days I'll just cruise on through the store for outfit inspiration; I can't help but admire all the sleek and sophisticated silhouettes. I feel like I'm walking into my very own closet when I shop there. If only it were possible to have a closet as big as one of their stores. Dream life.

This Soleil Maxi Dress may just be my favorite piece from their vacation collection. The cinching at the waist is perfect for keeping a flattering fit on this silk flowing fabric and the adjustable straps show off a mid-to-low cut on the back. Along with the cut and length, the best part about this piece is that it features two additional details that will never go out of style: a royal blue hue and a playful paisley print. This is one style to save for that resort getaway in the Winter months and for many more Summers ahead.

There's still more to come! Follow our hashtag #ClubMonacoSummer on Instagram for more from me and Alex. And stay tuned for {Part 2 & 3} of my "Endless Summer" collaboration with A Boston Blazer and Club Monaco.

Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend!
