My Favorite Trend from NYFW

Well I’m officially back from fashion week which means back to reality (i.e. sweats, to-do lists, emails). I’m working on a ton of fun posts to share over the next few weeks – so stay tuned! But in the meantime, I thought I’d kick things off with what was by far my favorite highlight from the week: the Kate Spade Presentation. I gotta give it up to my NYWF fairy godmother Jessica for letting me fill her shoes in New York. If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have been able to hang out with some of my favorite style icons (ummm hello Jamie Chung and Issa Rae). And by the way, I use the phrase “hang out” loosely. I kind of just crowded around with everyone else and took tons of pictures. But it’s all the same.

Back to the fashion. If I’m being completely honest, I’ve never been a huge fan of Kate Spade. I always thought it was a little too girly and “Blair Waldorf” for me and it just didn’t quite fit my more minimal, basic AF style. Well ladies, I think that’s about to change.

I was SO obsessed with all of the looks at the Kate Spade presentation. Not only did they do an awesome job at showcasing KS’s signature style, but they also incorporated this edgier vibe which I totally loved. While there were still super girly and feminine patterns, the moodier color palettes and edgy textures created this perfect balance that I can’t get enough of all year round. You’ll notice spring ready prints like gingham and floral but with details like black bomber jackets and dark stripes, you’ve got the best combo.

As you can see from my for that day’s shows, I have a serious thing for edgier, feminine vibes. I fell in love with this lace number for so many reasons. Not only is it the dress of my twirly-girl dreams, but the juxtaposition of the ruffles and moody navy hue is so on point. I opted for yellow velvet slides to keep things fun and thing they helped to play up this whole idea of girly meets edgy. So, safe to say I’m now a Kate Spade fan and might just have to pick up a few of these pieces next season!
