holiday greens

When it comes to holiday attire, I tend to shy away from the typical. Perhaps it’s that our family doesn’t celebrate Christmas, but the red and white that is everywhere this time of year doesn’t really ring my bells. For me, holiday fancies hinge on luxurious textures and festive textiles, and I lean towards blue, green, and metallics.

shorts season

If we had gone shopping together five, ten or even fifteen years ago, I never ever would have considered this darling little romper, or one like it.  No insult, I would have just wondered what it would be like to be comfortable in shorts, and walked past the rack. If you had asked me point blank, I would have told you that I ‘didn’t do shorts.’

shopstyle social house

We are back from New York and the madness that was NYFW! I was pretty quiet about it during the lead-up, simply because it came together so quickly. But it was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my career and life thus far and I’m so excited to share it with y’all.

The Shopstyle Social House event was actually the first invitation I received for the week in New York, and I was so excited about it.  A blogger’s oasis in a gorgeous space, I was looking forward to connecting with amazing people and brands, and it totally didn’t disappoint!

Brands like Neiman Marcus, Marks & Spencer, Luisaviaroma, Sam Edelman and more all provided tons of clothes and accessories for us to choose from and borrow to wear for the week. Going through those racks was so fun… and if you follow my instagram (specifically my stories!) you saw the sneak peeks and know I went home with some seriously good stuff!

The glass houses was so perfectly decorated for this event, with lots of little photo-ready spaces. Hallmark was providing the prettiest cards and mailing them for us, so I loved sending a little love from the big apple.

Gigi NY was foil-pressing initials onto crossbody bags, while Sole Society monogrammed social handles onto denim scarves.  {use code NYFW16 for 20% off madison and catie bags at GigiNY }. Baublebar gifted us chokers, and I felt all pampered with makeup by Le Metier de Beaute  and hair by R + Co.

They also had a photography team on deck, providing rooftop mini- shoots… pretty much a blogger’s dream, realized.  The below three images are by the talented Ugla Hauk.

I think my favorite part of the event was running into all the darling girls that I’ve gotten to know over Instagram!

Jamie (in blue) was such sweetheart, and Abby (in that killer Milly sequined dress) is a good friend- we had a sleepover one night. It seemed like I ran into Kat and Taylor (with the gorge strawberry blonde mane) at lots of different events. And Stefanie is the cutest- she made her green outfit!
