Milly Chloe Dress

Milly Chloe Dress (on sale) | Spanx Shaping Tights | J.Crew Manhattan Suede Booties (found on eBay - similar style) | Clare Vivier Leopard Fold Over ClutchLoren Hope Sarra Cuff Loren Hope Clara bracelet via Rocksbox | BaubleBar Juniper Ear Cuff Set

I bought a few new things for Fashion Week and they are all in this outfit! First, I loved the dark floral pattern of Milly's Chloe Dress. It's a good transitional piece and I think I'll get a lot of wear out of it. (It's on sale and join the mailing list for another 10% off!) I've had a hard time finding plain (no logos, no straps) booties. And when I spotted the perfectly simple J.Crew Manhattan booties they were of course sold out. Lucky for me I found them on eBay! I'm also trying out the ear cuff trend here. Baublebar has a lot of inexpensive options and I liked that the Juniper Ear Cuff Set was delicate.  Finally, I bought Spanx opaque tights. I wore them everyday in NYC. They were thick enough to keep out the cold and thin enough to layer underneath pants. I definitely recommend going up a size due to the shaping factor though.

I am freezing in this photo! New York had one of the coldest days in 20 years while I was there but I had to wear my red cape (last seen here) to the Kate Spade presentation. This cape is nearly sold out but I found several cute cape styles for under $100 on Sheinside. Thanks to Drybar for the complimentary blowout!

Kate Spade Presentation #behindthecurtain

The Kate Spade presentation was such a pinch me experience. The presentation was two hours and while some people popped in & out, I soaked up every minute. Fall 2015 is beautiful! It starts with a collection of pink party dresses, coats, and big bows (my favorite) then transitions into red & black plaid, lots of fur, and ends with menswear inspired looks. Brad Goreski styled the models (remember when I met him at Nordstrom's?). One of my favorite looks pairs a black bejeweled sweatsuit with a faux fur coat and beanie (detail shot above). It looked so effortlessly cool! The pink bow blouse (great for work) and the fur trim coat are top of my wish list for Fall.  Shop my current favorites below and take an additional 25% off sale with code SPRINGFLING.

Floppy Felt Hat

BCBG Janel Jacquard Cardi-Wrap | Calypso St. Barth Jazmin Shirttail Tee | J Brand White Jeans | J.Crew Floppy Hat | Vince Camuto Braden Boots | Golden Thread Monogram Disc Necklace With Diamond | Jane Hollinger Heart Necklace | Gorjana Taner Bar Mini Stud Earrings via Rocksbox

Trying out the floppy hat trend today. What do you think? I struggle styling bangs with hats but recently jumped on the beanie bandwagon so thought I'd also give this look a shot. J.Crew has a great selection of hats (for winter and resort) under $100. I snagged this dark navy one in-store for $35! I love the navy, pink, and grey combination in this BCBG cardi-wrap. It's a great transitional piece for when it's still cold but you are ready for Spring colors. It has also been my go-to travel accessory. It's very soft and you can wrap up in it on a chilly plane. BCBG has several cardi-wraps in a variety of cute colors and patterns.
