Perhaps it is just post traumatic Fashion Week disorder, but I really like the thought of wearing only vintage-esque cotton tee’s for the rest of my life. Here’s a look that’s as casual it comes, but with a touch of metallic thrown in for good measure!

Jokes aside, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t pretty much live for this time of year…and I’ve truly enjoyed experiencing NYFW as a local for the first time. Been having so much fun going to a few shows, catching up with close friends, and just taking in all of the inspiring energy. But it’s not over yet…follow me on Twitter and Instagram for more updates along the way! ♥

Happy Fashion Week! As you may know, in addition to this little blog thing I’ve got going on, I also work in marketing for the shoe and handbag company, Pour La Victoire. Since I started my role with PLV after moving to New York in February, the company has undergone some incredibly exciting changes, including a rebrand which unfolded last month with our first ever ad campaign. Being on set with Terry Richardson and Jessica Hart has to be a career highlight for me…it was beyond inspiring to see the legendary fashion photographer working his magic behind the lens!

Wore this outfit to an event Pour La Victoire hosted at Soho House earlier this week to debut a behind the scenes video from the campaign shoot. You can check out the video below…I hope you like it!!

Been on a mad quest for a colorful shorts suit for, like, ever, and this matching chambray set may just be the ticket. That and the fact that it’s the most comfortable ensemble imaginable! I love being a girl…all you need to do to get away with pajama-like attire in public is throw on a pair of heels and call it a day.
