I've long been saying this season was my last New York Fashion Week—whether or not it ends up being true, my goal was to get shot by a street style photographer, and it happened! Thanks to WhoWhatWear UK for sharing my look. I can now say sayonara with a smile. 

Fashion week is just a lot. Many things have changed since I started going a few seasons back, and as much as I love the thrill and rush of it all, the hustle is getting to me. If I'm in New York, I want to be in New York, not peeping down the runway looking for a front row seat I can duck into without being noticed (not kidding. I've literally watched top bloggers that are second row sneak into the front once the lights go down, it's hilarious). It's unavoidably catty and competitive at times, and if you aren't careful, you can forget you're there to have fun in the first place. That's why I wanted to do the full circuit this time, and that's why my photographer Alex and I are sitting in Milan, Italy right now—I'm doing fashion week all the way for once, just to say that I have, and I'm having the time of my life doing it.

Thanks so much to all the brands, partners, sponsors, and readers for making it happen—couldn't do it without you.

Capturing Fall

Fall is the season I'm always most excited to shop for. I have a few favorite and dedicated items I wear through the year, and then create a capsule fall wardrobe with some extra cozy gear. This year, I'm excited to partner with Target and Starbucks to bring you this #FallForStarbucks post to show you the must-haves I found in store!

Target was always a go-to for inexpensive on-trend pieces in my closet, especially because it's much more accessible than mall shopping in my hometown. Each season, I find a few sweaters and flannels I need, and recently found a few denim styles that fit me too.

Keep reading to see how I styled my flannel, cargo jacket, skinny jeans, and moccasins:

One of my best fashion tips for Target? Shop around in other sections! I picked up this cozy beanie and boot cuffs in the dollar section—I turned the boot cuffs into arm warmers to add a cozy touch to this cargo jacket. It was the perfect look for camping with my family, especially with pumpkin spice tea (a very seasonally-appropriate selection from Tazo) along the beach as the sun came up.

That's what makes Target the best kind of department store—pure variety. Picking up an cozy fall outfit in clothing, new air mattresses and fold-up chairs in sporting goods, plus Starbucks coffee and Tazo tea in grocery...nothing like a one-stop shop to get you in the spirit of fall.

There's nothing like the New York City beat and vibe on a Tuesday morning. Silver foxes on skateboards, business meetings in the Ace Hotel lobby, and sunshadows across the street at my favorite building in town. Alex and I spent our last couple of days skipping out on shows—after Coach's SS17 show, the most important one on my schedule. I ended up changing outfits beforehand due to some wardrobe malfunctions, so stay tuned for that look in the coming days!
