Nothing beats jersey. 

Love lounging around in this dress…but if I’m going to wear it out, this thing clearly needs a little cinching. Threw on my Coach-purse-turned-fanny-pack as a finishing touch…my new favorite “belt” for sure.

Call me lazy, but let’s get real…it’s a million times more practical than a handbag.

A few snaps from what was probably my favorite day in New York. Blake and I decided to break out of the Fashion Week bubble surrounding our hotel (not complaining!) and head to SoHo for a day of exploring, eating and shopping. I felt this breezy, pleated number to be the perfect dress for the occasion.

In other news, very excited to announce I’ve launched a blog shop! Just a few of my favorite things – from across the web and from my closet. :)

Photos from one of our last days in New York, snapped just before the adorable Tibi show! Was pleasantly surprised to see less prints, and more solids — lots of beautiful colors and flowing fabrics. Been dreaming of loose-fit dresses and jumpsuits ever since!

As excited as I am for our forthcoming Indian Summer, I am also ready to sport fall colors. Maroons, mustards, deep pinks and jewel tones have always been favorites of mine.

Any fall trends you’re particularly excited about?

Blake and I have been staying busy in New York…shopping, show-going and eating LOTS of food! Highlights so far include an extremely successful trip to Topshop, an afternoon in Central Park and dinner at what has to be the best ramen spot on the planet.

Off to drink a my new favorite cucumber cocktail (aka a “Don’t Feed The Models”), before hitting the town for one last hurrah! Leaving tomorrow — these trips are never ever long enough.

Day one at Lincoln Center…we’re staying at the Empire right across the street, which couldn’t be more convenient!

Touched down in NYC and jumped right in with Blogger’s Night Out and one of the funnest after parties ever. I have already met more fantastic and inspiring people this trip than ever before, and it has only been one day! Being here always feels always feels a little surreal…

Oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Blake, my partner in crime! So happy to be celebrating in NY with my love. :)

I decided to rebel against that whole “no white after Labor Day” rule. I don’t think it really applies in SF…September/October is our summer after all.

Trying to keep my cool and prep for Fashion Week festivities, stay caught up with work responsibilities, and gear up for the Teen Vogue/Bebe FNO Blogger Boutique on Thursday night (excited!).

Hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend. Back to reality! <3
