Little Italy

One of my favorite parts about traveling is rolling with the punches. Tamara, Kelsey, and Lyss and I arrived in New York for fashion week only to be greeted by the San Gennaro festival in Little Italy, the street of our hotel completely blocked off. We ended up walking a few extra blocks every day depending on where the taxi dropped us off, but we heard a lot of festive music and smelled amazing food every night which made it all worth it. I wore this look to my birthday dinner at The Wayfarer uptown. Between the free sushi and New York cheesecake, it was one of the best nights of our trip.

Our last day in New York, Lyss and I played it pretty cool. We didn't have any fashion events to attend, which meant no outfit pressure for us. I ended up rewearing half of my traveling outfit, but ditched the jacket and added my favorite sneakers for a trek through midtown to the top of Rockefeller Center and a stroll along the High Line. Lyss and I met up with fantastically stellar photographer Ivan Clow, who shot the above photos, and the three of us had a blast running around looking for the best backgrounds and the best lighting. I loved the mix of dark and light neutrals in my look, especially when playing in the shadows and sunspots under and around the High Line.

Anyone who reads my blog knows I like to play it safe. I'm comfortable in my skinny jeans and sweaters, so I don't often stray from the path. However, New York Fashion Week is the one time each year I get to switch things up, so I decided to take advantage of it. It's always fun to dress for shows, because you try to capture your interpretation of the brand's aesthetic in your look. This is what I wore to Nanette Lepore: I wanted a really feminine silhouette but with playful prints and patterns to keep it fresh and young. This mismatched set from Proper & Prim in Minneapolis was the perfect pairing!
