NYFW + Fashion Risks

And just like that, NYFW is upon us. 

Honestly, I have no idea when it became September, but I’m not complaining one bit (see reasons why I’m excited for fall here). But let’s get back to this fashion week business…

New York Fashion Week is perhaps that most anticipated time in the fashion industry and I’m lucky enough that I get to see it from the perspective of a blogger and of a working professional in the industry.

Seeing our runway shows come to life from the very beginning is pretty amazing, but there’s something about being a blogger in the midst of it all that is pretty special too. 

Between planning looks for special NYFW looks (last season’s looks here, here, and here) and meeting bloggers in real life (finallllly), this upcoming week is going to be pretty hectic…in the best way possible.

With fall fashion comes a whole new set of risks when it comes to your looks. And for whatever reason, I’ve been turning to Banana Republic for those fashion risks…plus some other basics.

Seriously, Marissa Webb is an absolute genius.  Whatever she does, she does to perfection – in the most perfectly un-perfect way. I absolutely love how she mixes the most unexpected pieces and they look amazing together. Her tomboy-ish play on feminine looks really goes a long way…and inspired this look.

Never in a million years would I think to throw a dress on over denim and then add another dress to the mix. But here I am. Never say never, right?

On this particular day, it was cool enough to shoot this look – which made me pretty excited for Fall. I’m ready to pull out my layers and find different ways to mix and match some of my new favorite pieces. Can’t wait to see what the cooler weather has in store for my style 😉
