Last week I had the fabulous opportunity to do a street art tour in collaboration with Longchamp and Vogue! The day was such a blast with some of my favorite blogger babes, Krystal of This Time Tomorrow, Charlotte of The Fashion Guitar and Marianna of Life with Me. I chose a head to toe Longchamp look from the showroom including this gorgeous blush pink cross body bag, a cute fit and flare dress and pointy toe heels. I love street art in NYC - it is such a communal experience seeing beautiful works of art in the middle of the gorgeous city. We started our tour in SoHo to see the Bleeding Hearts work at KIDA by @JGoldCrown! I just adored the bold colors against the stark white wall. Next we went to the home and studio of Bradley Theodore, the incredible painter behind the infamous Karl Lagerfeld and Anna Wintour art piece. He was such a gracious host offering us champagne and cheesecake in his art space overlooking the city skyline in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Our last stop was Galli Restaurant in the Lower East side where we were joined by both artists for a delicious meal. Seriously, I had the best penne vodka of my life! Thanks so much to Longchamp and Vogue for creating this once in a lifetime opportunity to meet such influential artists and for sponsoring this post!
I was so excited to collaborate with Macy's on their MyStylist program at Herald Square. I've never had a personal styling session before so it was really fun to experience the one on one attention of a professional stylist. Before the appointment I emailed with my stylist who asked me to fill out a questionnaire about my body type, favorite pieces to wear and my color preferences. When I showed up to the session my stylist had already chosen several looks based on the latest trends for me to try on. Scroll down to see my three favorite outfits and which one I decided to bring home.
Sorting through the rack of clothes chosen by my stylist.
The first look was very 60's mod featuring a Sleeveless Mock Neck Dress from Rachel Rachel Roy, booties from Marc Fischer and a fringe bag from Vince Camuto.
The second look was more boho chic with a bit of 70's inspiration with a long sleeve dress (similar) from Free People and a vegan leather jacket also from Free People.
The last look was a traditional fall look with a twist. The red and black plaid top is from Kensie and the vegan leather skirt is from Free People.
I decided to go with the final outfit. I loved the cut of the plaid top with the fitted vegan leather mini skirt. I also splurged on this adorable yellow bag from Coach with a matte black chain. I love the overall look, it's so of-the-moment fall and easy to transition from day to night. Be sure to check out the MyStylist program at a location near you.

I can't believe Fall is already here! I've teamed up with Burlington (I'm a member of the Burlington Style Squad™!) to share another outfit post this time with a 70's theme. The trend has been all over the runways and I was excited to try it out for myself. I shopped at the Union Square location and found tons of great pieces to incorporate into my throwback look! The first thing I found was this gorgeous 'coatigan' with a vivid fair isle pattern (another cute patterned option here). It's so cozy and is perfect to throw over an outfit for a chilly night out. To play off the colors in the sweater I found a burgundy dolman sleeve top. The fringe bag with a chain strap really caught my eye in the accessories section and I knew it was the perfect piece to really add that 70's feel to the overall look. I think this outfit is perfect for a fall date night to the movies or even out with the girls. It's laid back and cozy with with a touch of edge. Add a hat, bold lipstick and a killer heel or boot to complete the outfit! Have you tried the 70's look?

The fabulous Limited Edition Bobbi Brown Lip Trio
Pale Mauve: This is my new favorite soft lipstick for everyday neutral looks or to pair with a smokey eye. The color payoff is incredible and it's easy to build to find your perfect lip look. It is a very natural shade that really amplifies the natural color of the lips.
Salmon: I was so excited to find this color that's a gorgeous pink with a hint of orange. I feel like it's easy to find the perfect red with an orange or coral undertone but it's more rare to find a pink with the same amount. It's especially pretty on fair skin because it adds a dash of warmth. I know I'll be wearing this shade throughout the winter to add a bit of color.
Soft Rose: Last but certainly not least is the brightest of the three colors, Soft Rose. This one felt the most like 'home' since it's a bold shade but I love the sophisticated shade. It feels like a very grown-up lipstick that could be easily paired with lots of different looks.
I was so excited to collaborate with not only one of my favorite beauty brands, Bobbi Brown, but also one of my favorite retailers, Neiman Marcus to showcase the Limited Edition Bobbi Brown Lip Trio! You guys know I'm normally a red lip gal but it was so fun to explore new more neutral shades! The three lipsticks included in the Trio are Pale Mauve, Salmon and Soft Rose. Each is unique with a creamy texture that's totally hydrating. The payoff is full coverage and buildable but not quite matte. The shine looks natural and very flattering. Shop my favorite Bobbi Brown picks available at Nordstrom and let me know in the comments below what's your favorite shade?

Fashion Week has been such a rush this year! I've been loving checking out the top trends for Spring 2016 and especially seeing all the street style outside the shows. Boho continues to be a popular on the runways so I decided to create a 70's bohemian look perfect for fall with my new DSW booties. Noelle and I hit a few fashion shows and events over at MILK studios on the West Side at 10the Avenue then got a much needed breath of fresh air at the 14th Street Park. For this outfit I paired a boho off-the-shoulder dress with a suede motorcycle jacket and a cool black hat. To top off the look I'm wearing my new favorite boots from DSW. They are so comfortable I wore them all day with no problem. They add just the right amount of height with a stable block heel plus I love the easy on/off withe the goring panels. The shape is slightly pointed, elongating the legs and the grey suede feels very of the moment and can be paired with so many different looks. I can't wait to wear these boots all fall!
