Day to Night

Usually, when people are transitioning their outfit from day to night they keep the same clothing items and switch up the accessories. I did just the opposite here. After wearing this outfit here all day I wanted to change up my look before meeting friends for a late night dinner and drinks. I changed into a black jumpsuit but stuck with the same hot pink heels, bright earrings, and blue clutch I had before to keep the outfit colorful! I added a little more colorful jewelry and a leather jacket and called it a night.

Jumpsuit: Michael Stars. Heels: kate spade (love these). Earrings: kate spade. Bracelets: Gorjana and Lilly Pulitzer. Lipstick: Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie "Risk it All."

Suede Skirt

Button up skirts are a huge trend this fall, in suede or in denim. I happen to love the a-line fit of skirts like these (not gonna fly up in the wind, but not too tight either) so I went ahead and jumped on this trend band-wagon with a black suede version. Another trend that was huge this summer, the off-the-shoulder look, creeped its way into this outfit too. With such a simple and streamlined black and white outfit I tossed in some bolder accessories, like this chunky necklace, gold heeled sandals, and fringe bag. I wore this look while photographing street style at New York Fashion Week.

As you can see I've given in just a touch to the idea that fall is coming...

Style Stalking

If you like fashion one of the best things to do during NYFW is to grab your camera and camp out in front of a fashion week event hall for a few hours. You're guaranteed to see some amazing and interesting outfits, and probably a few celebs and bloggers too. I had such a blast snapping photos of my favorite looks this past week, and taking inspiration from all of the extraordinary outfit choices. I wanted to wrap up my fave looks with another post dedicated to street style, so here you go!

Pink & Blue at NYFW

Photos by Jennifer of Jennesis of Chic

Statement skirts are always a hit at Fashion Week with long silhouettes or fun prints often a street style favorite. While I was out capturing the phenomenal street style that NYFW draws on camera I dressed up a bit too. "See and be seen," you know!

I went with this swingy white midi skirt knowing that I wanted to pair my outfit with hot pink heels. Keeping the top simple allowed for lots of color in the accessories balancing pink and blue against each other. Initially I wanted to pair the pink with a rich cobalt blue but I couldn't make the outfit work, so I substituted this pretty teal shade creating a brighter color palette. The details ended up working perfectly together, with elements such as the quilted texture on both the skirt and the clutch coordinating. While I debated a few other fab shoe options for NYFW (see them on my Instagram), I love any chance to wear these bright Kate Spade beauties! 

Skirt: similar. Top: BB Dakota. Shoes: kate spade (1/2. see the last time I wore these here). Earrings: kate spade. Bracelet: J.Crew. Clutch: 1/2.

NYFW Street Style Snapshots

It's that time of year again! NYFW is taking over the city (and my instagram feed) and I couldn't resist swinging by to snap a few photos of the always-fabulous street style worn by show-goers. 
Take a peek at some of my favorite looks from Friday. Bold prints, mixing textures and colors, and fun fringe are some of the highlights.

Quick Look: Peplum

Just a quick look today at a favorite outfit of mine! I first put this look together last fall and I had to bring it back with a more summery twist because I like the effect so much. I don't often wear the exact same combination twice because I like to get more creative and switch things up, but some combinations are just too perfect to pass up.

Instead of dark denim and booties, this time I brightened the look with light wash jeans and eye-catching orange sandals for a pop of color. There is something about the texture and dimension created by the double peplum that I really love, and it's so perfect the way the colors and patterns of these two pieces mix. Adding the orange shoes gives the look a summery feel and keeps the outfit colorful!

Top: Tart (1/2). Jacket: H&M (I've seen this same one still in stores, but I've linked to similar ones here: 1/2). Jeans: Gap (similar). Shoes: Kate Spade Saturday (1/2). Necklace: kate spade.

When I was younger I used to wear all silver jewelry, but in recent years I've switched to mostly gold. Since the switch I sometimes find it hard to incorporate some of my old silver favorites into my outfits, so they end up not getting as much wear. Today though, I went for all silver for the first time in ages. Starting with my shiny silver sandals I built up with matching jewelry and a bag on a silver chain. Simple black and white provide a classic background for the metallics and a bright red lipstick adds a touch of color. Loose separates like these are perfect for looking chic on these super hot days we're still having in New York!
