NYFW Fall 2015!

Saturday, February 28, 2015

Since New York Fashion Week recently came to a close, that means another week went by where I was wishing I could be in NYC. I wanted to share with you two of my favorite collections that were shown during the week!

Erin Fetherston's collection was among one of my favorites for this season! Her collection is called Wildwood. Fetherston said she was inspired by fairytales, which gave a different perspective to her girly dresses that she is known for. Many darker colors were used, like, deep turquoise, burgundy and black with florals mixed in. Maybe this was because I have fairytales on my mind, but these colors remind me of the M.A.C Maleficent line they had about this past summer. I could see myself wearing a majority of the pieces from this collection, which is why it's probably one of my favorites! In the fall and winter time I love wearing burgundy and I find myself wearing black more often, this collection is very fitting! I feel that turquoise is a color that can be worn all year round and it's flattering on everyone, so I was really happy to see that color incorporated! Whether it was a light weight chiffon top paired with an A-line floral skirt on the runway or a black shift dress with lace embellishments, I love how she kept a romantic feel across the entire collection! Here are a few of my favorite pieces and trust me, it was SO hard to narrow my favorites down!


Like always, I loved Kate Spade's collection! Deborah Lloyd, the chief creative officer for Kate Spade was inspired by the magical stories of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Fantastic Mr. Fox. Lloyd said she "always keeps the clothes whimsical and fun"(style.com), but because of her inspiration, the vibrant hues Kate Spade is known for were toned down. 
The collection was a great mix of menswear inspiration and bright prints and pops of color. The collection included many boxy coats, some with eye catching plaids, neutrals. and striking colors like pink and red. Something different that was seen throughout the collection was fur accents on the garments and accessories. This is where the inspiration from Fantastic Mr. Fox comes into play. 
I really really loved that in this Kate Spade collection, lots of plaid ranging from bright reds to neutrals were used. I think this is great because in the fall time my love for plaid definitely sky rockets! 
What I think is perfect about this collection is the fact that Kate Spade stayed true to her look she's known for with t-length skirts, oversized coats and girly accents while sprinkling in fur accents and an array of bold and neutral plaids! I would 100% wear almost everything from the collection. Once again, I had trouble narrowing down to just a few of my favorite looks, but hey, I think choosing 8 out of 30 looks isn't too bad. 

Valentine's Day Outfit!

Saturday, February 14, 2015

Valentine's Day is one of those days people either love or hate. For me I love it because it's the perfect excuse to wear red lipstick, watch Nicholas Sparks movies and eat chocolate, plus I'm one of those corny people who loves to wear red on Valentine's Day, green on St. Patrick's Day and so on. There was no question if I was going to incorporate red into my outfit today! 

Where I live is in the middle of a snowstorm right now, so I wore one of my absolute favorite, coziest sweaters! I wanted to go all out and wear red tights, but I couldn't find them. I paired my sweater with black tights, a black long sleeve turtleneck and I wore a black belt around my waist to add shape to my outfit. For accessories, I wore my red bow headband and I paired this outfit with my black riding boots earlier today. 

For makeup, I kept my eyes simple because of the the bold lip. I put a light brown eye shadow on my lid that had a little bit of a sparkle to it. Next, I used a medium matte brown in my crease and finished the eyeshadow off with a shimmery champagne color for a highlight on my brow bone. To complete the eye look I used my volumizing mascara. And last but not least I finished off with a red lip! To make your lipstick last 10x longer, put on a matching lip liner all over your lips first, then follow with the lipstick! 

Cardigan- Aeropostale
Turtleneck- Old Navy
Tights- Target
Headband- Icing 

Eyeshadow- Elf little black book palette 
Mascara- Makeup Forever volumizing mascara 
Lipstick/Lipliner- Makeup Forever 

My Trip to Ireland!

Monday, February 2, 2015

Hey everyone! I can't believe it's been almost a month since I've posted! I've been busy the past couple weeks because during my schools J-Term, I studied abroad for 2 weeks in Ireland. I got back a little over a week ago and I finally got around to posting about it.  Everything about Ireland was absolutely incredible! All the people were extremely nice, the food was delicious and the scenery was breath taking, pictures really don't do it justice. Sheep are my favorite animal, and let me tell you, people aren't lying when they say there are a lot of sheep in Ireland, it made me SO happy!

Now I know this isn't a fashion post, but I loved Ireland too much to not share anything about it. While I was there I took a photography class, so here are some of the pictures I took!

I took over 1000 pictures, so it was extremely hard to pick out just a few to post. I'm really going to try and post more often! Having a broken phone and laptop made it pretty difficult to post. I already have my next post in mind, I'm going to try to get that up shortly!
