I can finally say I’ve found a purse that ticks off all three.

Fashion

My blisters are finally healing up from New York Fashion Week, and I am excited to share my coverage of the new collections with you! Even though these collections are for spring and summer 2018, there are styles and trends you can take away from them to start wearing NOW, and I’ve included my recommendations under each collection.

If you haven’t watched my New York Fashion Week vlog yet, take a peek at that to see some of these looks in action on the runway!

Boots v. Booties

Fashion

Happy fall, y’all! The weather is getting chilly, the pumpkin spice drinks are back, and that means it’s closed-toe shoe season!

Perhaps the biggest mental debate I have in fall is that of boots v. booties. When should I wear my tall riding boots and when should I opt for some booties instead?

I’ve used some outfits from my own closet as well as from my friend Olivia to help illustrate how to decide between boots v. booties this fall!

Wearing White after Labor Day

Fashion

We talked about wearing blush into fall before, but today it is Labor Day! Apparently, you can’t wear white after today, thanks to some antiquated societal rule people used after the Civil War to distinguish old money from new money. I say screw that, wear white all year long!

Here are some easy ways to keep wearing white after Labor Day, along with some of my favorite winter white picks (most are on sale!)

Labor Day Weekend Sales

Fashion

Happy Labor Day Weekend and HAPPY SEPTEMBER!

Enjoy the extra day off, spend time with family and friends, and do some major shopping! There are lots of great sales going on this weekend, but the three best in my opinion are Etsy, LOFT and Urban Outfitters. Etsy is having its first ever sale, where you can get up to 60% off any item. LOFT has reduced lots of summer AND fall merchandise, making it all super affordable. Finally, Urban Outfitters has some great home goods as well as clothing items on sale that were marked down an additional 30%. Happy shopping!
